Simple Tweaks to Transform How You Recruit Top Talent



“Alexa ….?  Google…? Send me top talent.”


Even the most progressive technology will not solve the talent war we are in. There are a few foundational elements of recruiting that most have chosen to leave stagnant for years. Yet - with just a few tweaks, you could transform your recruiting department to an inbound recruiting machine, helping you solve the most critical challenges of your business.


What you’ll walk away from this session with:

  1. How to stand out - with little to NO extra financial investment
  2. How to move from almost ‘begging’ for talent to being a magnet for talent
  3. Tangible ways to implement, not just theory
  4. Real Examples - Companies of different sizes and industries
  5. Progressive industry knowledge of how to attract talent

A special "THANK YOU" to our April 16th Event Sponsor:




Theresa Nordstrom:

Theresa Nordstrom, SPHR, is a 20+ year progressive HR professional with experience in Fortune 100 and start-up organizations. She has worked in a diverse group of companies and industries such as big-box retail, construction, food manufacturing, and technology. A few of the companies you may recognize are Best Buy, ConAgra Foods, Accenture and Interstates, a NW Iowa company located in Sioux Center.

Theresa’s HR career is very diverse but from her very first role at Target stores, she found herself spending a lot time in one space - talent acquisition. Why? Because it always seemed to be the area where there needed a problem to be solved.

In 2015, after helping sell a Start-Up tech company, Theresa left the corporate world and founded Nordstrom Talent, an Executive Search Firm. Her firm specializes in attracting the Top 15% of Accounting, Finance & Human Resource talent; using story-telling and innovative round-the-clock digital inbound marketing strategies to grab the attention of those who are about impossible to attract.

Her clients and candidates would likely describe her as more of a marketer or career coach than as a Recruiter. Her motto is – why fit in when you were born to stand out?
