Ahh, it is October! What an amazing month – the leaves are starting to change, everyone (and it does seem like everyone) is selling pumpkin flavored something, and most importantly – it is the month of the HR Technology Conference! It has been going on for 16 years, and the best way I can describe it is it is like shopping at Mall of America, going to a Ted Conference, and a family reunion. But why discuss this in a recruiting blog? Aside from wanting to make sure you go next year – there are two primary reasons – and I will cover each one in a separate blog.
