JobMobile is a unique series of events which celebrates innovations and strategies in recruitment.

At this year's JobMobile NYC, our goal is to inspire recruiters and HR professionals to transform their talent acquisition strategies to digitally target what will soon be 46 percent of the workforce: Millennials.

For those of you planning to attend, below is a run-down of what you can expect at Wednesday’s event. 

Panel discussion of local industry leaders.

The panelists, featured below, will discuss how their teams leverage social media and mobile technology to recruit Gen Y.
