Not Your Ordinary HR Conference: The Hiring Success 18 Sizzle Reel is Here

Keen to rejig the status quo, SmartRecruiters pulled out all the stops for this year’s Hiring Success conference. Need proof? Check out the Hire18 sizzle reel and see for yourself.

In typical San Francisco fashion, March was cold, wet, and foggy. Meanwhile, the atmosphere at the Hyatt Regency in the city’s historic Embarcadero crackled, as SmartRecruiters welcomed nearly 1000 recruiting and TA professionals from across the globe to share insights, network, and discuss the future of the recruiting industry at our annual Hiring Success conference.

For 48 hours, the Hyatt glowed bright green as top industry analysts, thought-leaders, and speakers took to four stages with topics running the gamut from technological innovation to workplace empathy.

In addition to a seam-bursting schedule, Hiring Success 18 ushered in exciting company announcements including an AI recruiting assistant, on-demand analytics, and all that was just in SmartRecruiters CEO Jerome Ternynck’s opening keynote.

Between sessions, attendees perused vendor and sponsor booths, observed the first ever recruiting Hackathon, which saw the talented team at Visa create an internal mobility add-on for the SmartRecruiters platform in just 24 caffeinated hours. Attendees also found out why bested the competition to become the Recruiting Startup of the Year.

Finally, no Hiring Success conference is complete without a rousing SmartParty. This year we served up unparalleled views of the San Francisco skyline — along with a taste of the VIP lifestyle — from the decks of the mighty California Hornblower yacht.

Check out the post-wrap sizzle reel below as you try and try to stifle your FOMO. We are already planning for next year’s event, so be sure to mark your calendars and we’ll see you at Hiring Success 19!
