Slush 2015 will, for the first time ever, feature a Recruiting Area. The focus is to eventually make recruiting an as important part of the event for startups as funding and media coverage are today.
Slush Recruiting Area
Both event day afternoons will feature a specific Slush Recruiting Area, which will gather together hiring startups, job seekers and service providers around the theme of building the right team in a growth company. The area will facilitate spontaneous encounterings and provide both startups and those interested in joining one with valuable tools and knowledge.
Hiring startups can promote their job opportunities in expo stands and present themselves to a job-seeking audience in employer pitching. Speed dating sessions will create a formalized matchmaking opportunity for creating contacts quickly. Startups participating in the Recruiting Area can book tables from the interview lounge to have one-on-one discussions with potential new team members, and service providers will host recruiting-themed clinics both for employers and job seekers. Recruiting Area program will also include insightful chats with professionals and those that have gone through multiplying their team over and over again.
Slush Jobs Site
Later in October, Slush will open a Jobs Site where companies coming to Slush can list their open positions. The site was introduced for the first time in 2013 and has received positive feedback in the last two years. This year there will also be a chance for applicants to announce their possible attendance at Slush, which helps employers invite potential candidates for a meeting at the event.
