Please join us for our June lunch meeting!
The internet presents HR professionals with advantages and challenges. With job boards, social media and e-portfolios, human resource companies have ways to advertise jobs and build brand recognition. Companies can do searches on sites like LinkedIn and Facebook for talent specific to their job descriptions. In addition, employers can screen applicants for indiscretions and can save money by foregoing recruitment agencies with social media applications. Challenges arise from keeping hiring information current and making sure their ads reach the right applicants. Furthermore, managers need to assure recruitment information communicates company expectations effectively. This presentation focuses on social media strategies human resources can employ to acquire the right talent and build a competitive presence in the digital arena.

He has done presentations for the Gulf Coast Writers Association on self-publishing and common grammatical mistakes beginning writers make. In 2015, Jeremy did three virtual seminars for Kaplan University. Two of these presentations discussed literary topics. The first dealt with how the film Jaws has influenced prejudice against sharks; the second analyzed how the monster in H.P. Lovecraft’s The Color of Outer Space represented an attack of industrialization on rural, agricultural town. The third was a joint effort among three other professors on how to use free software to enliven dull digital environments for online classes.
