Jobvite’s 8th annual customer conference
Press release: San Mateo, Calif. — Jobvite, the leading recruiting solution for emerging and enterprise companies, will be holding its 8th annual customer conference on May 17th and 18th at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco. The conference will feature informative customer sessions, networking with talent acquisition leaders, speeches from Jobvite executives, including Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan, and a keynote speech from technology entrepreneur and evangelist Guy Kawasaki.
Kawasaki, the chief evangelist of online graphic design tool Canva and former chief evangelist of Apple will speak on the concept of enchantment, the subject of one of his New York Times bestselling books, as a way of redefining both business and personal relationships. Kawasaki’s speaking skills are in high demand, and have impressed audiences at Apple, Nike, Audi, Google, and Microsoft, among others. In his Summit keynote, he’ll discuss how to bring about enduring and positive change in others, and view them as partners with a common cause rather than using more traditional goal-oriented techniques.
The conference will also gather a wide range of industry leaders from companies including Schneider Electric, Zappos, and Talend to discuss the state of modern recruiting. “We love hosting our current and future customers every year, and providing access to industry experts with the latest insights into recruiting,” said Matt Singer, VP of Marketing of Jobvite. “And this year, we’re offering focused workshops on key topics to help customers rethink how they recruit, and get creative in how they can find the best talent for their organization.”
