Hundreds of Recruiters at Bullhorn Live
The Bullhorn Live User’s Conference attracted more than 300 staffing and recruiting professionals from 104 companies for two full days of expert presentations, breakout sessions, face-to-face product demonstrations and networking events – all focused on helping recruiting professionals generate greater revenues in 2012.
In the month leading up to the event, customers were invited to test their knowledge of the Bullhorn ATS for a chance to win prizes and participate in the first-ever Bullhorn Live game show. The top five scorers – Brian Roach of Design Group Staffing; Spencer Hellman of JOCO; Russ Danford of MATRIX Resources; Kyle Ketcham of Randstad Technologies; and Doug Feltman of 24 Seven Inc. – went head-to-head on stage, answering questions on the ATS, Bullhorn history, and even music from the 1970s.
Bullhorn CEO and co-founder Art Papas presented the keynote address on Monday, June 18 th, discussing the state of the domestic job market and the future of the staffing industry. “The last time we held Bullhorn Live was in 2009, at the depth of the Great Recession. We’ve been hard at work since then, bringing major innovations to the industry. It’s incredible to see the payoff. Our clients are thriving and Bullhorn has been a beneficiary of their success.”
