If you subscribe to the Amplify Talent newsletter, you know I'm a big fan of unconferences like Bill Boorman's #Tru events and Craig Fisher's TalentNet Interactive [plug: join me at TalentNet Interactive SXSW next month in Austin]. These events are great for recruiting and always spark lively dialog and challenge conventional views and wisdom in the field of recruiting. The latest #Tru event will be Thursday 2/19 in Chicago - #TruChicago. I won't be attending, but fortunately for me and our Amplify readers our friends at Brand Amper will be covering the event for us as special correspondents. Brand Amper Founders Jason Seiden (@Seiden) and Lisa Cervenka (@BrandNRD) will be on the ground live tweeting the conference throughout the day. Give them a follow and keep an eye on the #TruChicago hashtag throughout the day tomorrow.
We'll be following the conversation on Twitter and RT'ing some of the highlights on @AmplifyTalent. Jason and Lisa will be guest blogging here with a post-event recap next week.
PS - If you follow the Cool Tools podcast, Craig and I will have some exciting news coming next week about the TalentNet Interactive conference next month. Stay tuned...
