Talent Connect Happenings That You Wouldn’t Want to Miss

September 6, 2013

Talent Connect is coming. From Tuesday, Oct 15 – Thursday, Oct 17, 2,300+ talent acquisition professionals will gather at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas for LinkedIn’s annual recruiting conference. We posted a couple of months ago on 25 reasons—the early speaker confirmations—you don’t want to miss Talent Connect this year. Our agenda is now virtually complete and the speaker count is up to 97; check it out.


An equally important part of the conference is the experience. What are the most-anticipated keynotes and what can you do before, after, and in-between break-out sessions? How will you connect with others? Here are some not-to-be-missed parts of the conference, broken down by day:

Every day:

    • LinkedIn Product & Solutions Showcase (InLounge): Stop by during the conference for 1:1 consultations and demos so you get the most out of your LinkedIn investment. Staffed by members of our Global Product Consulting organization.
    • Rock My Profile: Profile needs a makeover? Need to amplify your professional brand? This booth will be your one-stop-shop for all of your LinkedIn profile needs, including taking a new headshot with a professional photographer.
    • Networking: We have several great interactive elements throughout the conference, designed to fuel all of your power networking needs.
    • Account Service Center: Our Enterprise Support team will be onsite throughout to help with any technical or troubleshooting needs related to your LinkedIn Talent Solutions products.

    • Keynotes: Start the day with LinkedIn product keynotes and a fireside chat with CEO Jeff Weiner, followed by a customer keynote from PepsiCo’s Chris Hoyt, and an inspirational keynote from Erik Wahl (The Art of Vision).
