CEO of TheLadders.com to Speak at the 14th Annual Garden State Council SHRM Conference and Expo

- Presentation to Focus on Building a Pipeline of Engaged Senior Talent -

NEW YORK, Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- TheLadders.com, the world's leading $100k+ jobs Web site, today announced that company President and CEO Marc Cenedella will be speaking at the upcoming 14th Annual Garden State Council Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Conference and Expo on November 8, 2005. Cenedella's session, "Thinking Outside of the Online Recruiting Box: Building a Pipeline of Fully Engaged Senior Talent," will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

The two-day educational conference, certified by the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI), will be held November 7th and 8th at the Ocean Place Resort & Spa in Long Branch, N.J. This year's conference, "HR Leadership: Engaged, Aligned and Accountable," is geared to business leaders and HR practitioners, and will highlight the profession's connection in achieving business results.

"The Internet has changed the way organization's recruit talent," commented Cenedella. "With an array of recruiting tools available, it is extremely important for organizations to keep a personal touch with applicants and cultivate a community of job candidates so that "time-to-hire" becomes a thing of the past."

In a world where anyone can send a resume in response to an online job posting, many organizations are surprisingly finding that it is almost impossible to find senior talent. In his presentation, Cenedella will discuss why the best way to find senior talent still requires a human touch, the intentional barriers that senior talent has in place to prevent contact with recruiters, and how to use (or not use) current technology-based recruiting trends such as blogging, online job services, and keywords. Through anecdotes of real-life scenarios, session attendees will also learn what really motivates senior talent to make a career change, why a one-size fits all approach to recruiting almost never results in quality candidates, and how to structure recruiting efforts to foster a fully engaged pipeline of high- potential senior talent.

The 2005 conference offers over 30 concurrent sessions, two keynote addresses, networking opportunities, a career planning center, and over 50 exhibitors.
