Las Vegas, job boards, and more: will I see you at IAEWS?

At the end of the month, I’ll be heading down (over?) to Las Vegas for the Fall 2014 IAEWS meeting. There will be networking, eating and drinking, and a pretty interesting lineup of speakers and topics. Plus, of course, I’ll be there  – what more could you want?

Andy Hibel of HigherEdJobs has put together a fascinating program. Here’s what’s coming:

  • A keynote from Ian Siegel, CEO of (maybe he’ll tell us how to land our own $65M in VC funding!)
  • A panel discussion about job aggregation (a topic near and dear to my heart), featuring Shelly Mudd (Jobs2Careers), Toby Dayton (LinkUp), Euan Haywood (Juju), Bill Jeffries (SimplyHired), and Tim Rush (HealthJobsNationwide)
  • Another panel discussion about people aggregation, featuring Mike Durney (Dice), Jon Bischke (Entelo), Matt Ekstrom (HiringSolved), and Peter Kazanjy (TalentBin/Monster)
  • A rundown on customer wisdom from Constance Melrose of Dice
  • A keynote on talent acquisition from casino veteran Arte Nathan
  •  A panel discussion on job board business models, with Gal Amog (RealMatch), Don Firth (TopUSAJobs); Chris Forman (StartDateLabs); and Steven Rothberg (College Recruiter)

I think the idea of having panel discussions mixed with what they are calling “dialogue groups” – basically breakout sessions to talk about what the speakers discussed – is promising. Of course, good panel discussions really depend on a moderator that can keep things moving along – so good luck, Gal, Mike, and Shelly!

Oh, and there will be a lunch and chat with the columnists of JobBoarders, including yours truly, so I hope you make time to stop by and say hello! Bottom line: if you can make it to Sin City, I suspect you’ll find it worth your time. And there are always the casinos….
