The second BAIA Dinner #2: All About Recruiting will take place in San Francisco on Tuesday October 23rd, at 7:00 pm.
Few people realize the complexity of the recruiting ecosystem: who better to share their knowledge on the topic than three veteran recruiters. We'll ask Lou Sarto, Robert LoPresto and Mike Loscavio about the different models of recruiting and their best practices. This dinner will appeal to many people including managers who use recruiters to fill critical positions, executives who are contacted by recruiters in their career progression and other recruiters comparing evolving methodologies. Join us to discuss the complex practice of talent acquisition.
