Aligning to this year’s theme of “Transformation for Advancement,” Scott Nevins will be sharing how technology has changed and will continue to change the hiring process at most organizations. Armed with this insight, he’ll guide the participants on how they can utilize this understanding to position themselves in the best way for job identification, interviewing, and ultimately getting hired.
Scott Nevins has been a part of the Talent Acquisition profession for almost 20 years. He has worked with companies ranging from “Mom & Pop Shops” through the Fortune “1” – helping organizations find talent and improve their recruitment processes. Further, he helps candidates find opportunities for skills development and economic growth in their new roles.
Scott is currently a consultant working with several Fortune 500 organizations on a number of fronts, including long term strategy development, organization design/management, skill upgrading, budget planning, and technology modernization (including Artificial Intelligence). Prior to this, he had several positions at Monster.com – a technology and media organization, including head of Global Talent Acquisition, HR Project Management Leader for Integration, and a Sr. Leader in their Talent Fusion program - whose purpose is to augment talent acquisition activities on behalf of over 1000 clients.
Scott came to recruitment accidentally – nobody entering college dreams one day they’ll be a recruiter - and found a career that utilized a great many of his skills and education. Rhetoric, Education Theory, Literary Analysis, Customer Service – all tools that have aided in his career.
Finally Scott is a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt. He has applied this capability in many ways: helping companies improve the quality of their talent acquisition practices, reducing non-value add activities felt by candidates, and boring friends and family with statistical analysis and spreadsheets.
