Indeed Interactive 2019 will be held May 13-15 in Austin, Texas — and this year, it’s going to be bigger and better than ever. Aimed at talent-acquisition and -management professionals, our conference features an informative lineup of sessions from subject-matter experts in a variety of industries.
See the full agenda here.
This year, you’ll learn to solve “The Talent Equation” by identifying what drives candidate decision-making and formulating strategies to stand out to top talent. You’ll also hear from thought leaders, connect with your peers; and gain new skills and insights.
While there’s something to learn at every session, here are seven in particular you won’t want to miss:
1. Decisions, Decisions: The Art and Science Behind Becoming Top Talent’s Top Choice
Job searching includes a series of decisions, including whether to look for a new job, commit to the interview process and accept the job offer. Factors such as salary, benefits and growth potential all contribute to candidates’ final choice. But are there less obvious influences on job seekers’ thinking?
In this session, Sheena Iyengar, professor at Columbia Business School and best-selling author of “The Art of Choosing,” will break down the art and science behind the decision-making process, giving you helpful insights and strategies to make more candidates want to work with you.

Nate Wigert, Recruitment Evangelist at Indeed, will share how to create clear paths toward growth and development for your current employees and provide best practices for career roadmapping.
3.To Attract Top Talent, Tell a Great Story
In this session, we have a meeting of two worlds: branding is represented by Indeed Vice President of Global Brand Marketing Jennifer Warren, while Director of Employer Brand at Indeed Bryan Chaney will discuss how these principles apply to hiring.
Together, they will explore how to leverage engaging, authentic brand storytelling to make an emotional connection with potential hires and attract top talent. You’ll also learn the essential components of a compelling brand story and gain research-based insights on the importance of storytelling in consumer and employer branding.
4. Marketing Beyond Millennials: Creating an Inclusive Recruitment Message Across Multiple Generations
Did you know that four generations are working side by side in today’s workforce? Yet according to PwC, only 8% of organizations include age as part of their diversity and inclusion strategies.
