MILL VALLEY, Calif. / July 31, 2012 —

Checkster, the leading provider of collective Intelligence tools to appraise talent, announced today that its chief executive officer, Yves Lermusi, will be presenting at the 2012 Recruiting Conference on October 15th 2012 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Talent decisions can make or break a business or a career. Determining the difference between a good and a great candidate is the key to business success and the distinction of a truly strategic talent acquisition department.

But talent decisions are hard, imperfect, fraught with landmines and do not primarily rely on sourcing expertise. To become more than resume pushers, talent acquisition departments need to arm themselves with knowledge, tools (including social tools) and techniques to make talent decisions better. From this presentation, attendees will gain ways to instantly be more valuable to their hiring managers, their department, and their organization.

The strategic reputation and role in a talent acquisition department revolves around the sum total of the success of one’s candidates, period. This presentation was designed for those who want to be more than just a link in the recruiting chain, more than a resume pusher.
