August2017 JobDescriptions

August 8, 2017 | 7pm - 9pm | Milton Education Village Innovation Centre, Milton

September is the busiest hiring month of the year. Are your job descriptions ready to attract the right candidate?

Finding the right people to hire is hard. But for many tech companies – it get’s harder because the job descriptions don’t inspire, don’t attract, and don’t convert into interested candidates.

Join us on August to learn how to understand:

  • The elements of a great job description in 2017
  • How to write the job description so you will attract the audience you want
  • How candidates read job descriptions (the good the bad the ugly)
  • What makes a job description authentic and real
  • What makes the right candidates apply

"Traditionally, society forces us to choose between working at home for ourselves or working at an office for a company. If we work at a traditional 9 to 5 company job, (the employer provides) community and structure, but lose freedom and the ability to control our own lives. If we work for ourselves at home, we gain independence but suffer loneliness and bad habits from not being surrounded by a work community. Coworking is a solution to this problem." - Brad Neuberg, first person to use the term "Coworking" and founder of first coworking space (The Spiral Muse in San Fransisco).

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Friday, July 21, 2017  |  Halton HiVE | Drop in anytime, 8:30am - 5pm

SiliconHaltonDayHaltonHive2016

Here's your opportunity to experience and experiment with co-working. Join fellow members at our monthly Silicon Halton Day at the coworking space Halton HiVE, Burlington. 

Our ideas are products of our environment. They are influenced by the conversations around us.
- Clive Thompson, Contributing Editor, Wired Magazine

Random opportunities and discoveries that arise from interactions with others – play a large role in coworking
- from Working in the UnOffice from Night Owls Press

If you’ve experienced the favourable collisions, the random opportunities, that regularly occur during the short span of a Silicon Halton meetup, imagine the possibilities during a full day? Collisions are the probable interactions with other local tech businesses or professionals or ancillary tech services. These collisions routinely produce discoveries, economic and/or professional growth.

If you work in home office or small office, can you afford not to come?

Lunch & Learn? Maybe
