Part Conference

Talent42 is the first – and only – conference that brings together tech recruiters and leading software engineers. We ask every speaker and every panelist to challenge the audience. Talent42 is a rare opportunity for the tech recruiting community to come together to share new ideas.

Review Agenda

Part Training

This year, we’re focusing the agenda and going deep on four topics. We want you to go back to the office armed with new ideas, new strategies and new tactics. You will hear from Talent Acquisition leaders, engineering leaders and practitioners in the trenches. We’re including more time for Q&A, small-group interaction and roundtables. Talent42 is successful when you learn something that you can apply in your organization.

Review Agenda

All Tech Recruiting

Tech Recruiting requires specialized knowledge, so we make sure that the agenda includes subject matter experts that help us learn more about technology behind the keywords and job descriptions. In 2018, as automation and technology quickly changes how we recruit, the agenda included in-depth discussions on how to leverage technology to improve results without de-humanizing the process.
