The DallasHR Talent Acquisition Round Table provides a venue for networking with peers, and sharing ideas and best practices related to Talent Acquisition that you can use in your organization.  Areas of focus may include, but are not limited to, attracting and engaging talent, effective interviewing, hiring manager relationships, candidate relationships, utilizing valuable sourcing techniques and tools, and building exquisite pipelines. We welcome your feedback of topics you would like us to cover as well.    

Meetings are for DallasHR Members only and is an open forum format so whatever is top-of-mind that day ultimately drives the discussion.

Bring your experience and stories to the meeting, come and learn from others’ successes and failures, and leave with a nugget of helpful insight you can take back to your workplace.

Questions That Leaders Should be Asking Recruiting Partners BEFORE Giving Them a Search
Presented by: Rob Thomas

Talent Acquisition leaders have been giving searches out to third-party recruiters for a very long time. The process hasn't really changed and this has lead to avoidable frustrations in Talent Acquisition. 

  • Ever gotten a 3 resume pause from a partner?
  • Ever heard "We can't find anyone?"
  • Do you constantly get inaccurate resumes even after doing an intake call with a recruiting partner?
  • Ever given out a search to a firm and later regretted it?

If you've been frustrated with third-party recruiting efforts in the past, you will want to attend this session.
