Finding the right talent can be a long and arduous process - some might even say it sucks. Finding good candidates who are open to new opportunities has always been akin to finding a needle in a haystack and now there's a whole new list of questions candidates are asking that many companies aren't prepared to answer. The flashy perks that once attracted top talent have taken a backseat to concerns about equity and burn rate. ​Between ​Hired's unique insights into the shifting wish lists of tech talent and Zillow​'s search for the best talent in an increasingly competitive marketplace, ​Mehul and Annie will provide strategic advice for ​companies​ looking to ​overhaul the hiring process.
