TL;DR: On Deck is launching On Deck Recruiting to bring together the brightest minds in talent leadership through community and experiential learning to enable them to achieve hiring excellence.
The talent landscape has shifted dramatically over the last decade. The candidate-centric market means that recruiting professionals need to rely on more than just traditional methods to source, attract, and hire stellar candidates.
On top of that, from an internal perspective, ambitious recruiters lack access to career development support and find it challenging to progress without establishing a solid personal brand and a recruiting team structured to scale. There’s also a huge gap in access to hiring best practices, clear communication channels, tools to track and measure recruiting ROI, and a network of like-minded peers to brainstorm with.
Enter the On Deck Recruiting Fellowship (ODR).
ODR brings together the brightest minds in talent leadership through community and experiential learning to achieve hiring excellence.
The program exists to raise the standard for recruiting excellence by facilitating connections among ambitious leaders to inspire better hiring practices. It kicks off with a 4-week intimate onboarding to help fellows get to know the community and learn how to navigate the broader On Deck ecosystem to achieve their goals for the year ahead.
After the onboarding, as a fellow, you can benefit from what’s on offer in a number of ways:
- A trusted community: Boost your network by connecting with a like-minded community of talent leaders and recruiting experts. Think of this as your personal board of trusted advisors to help support each other’s goals.
- Peer-to-peer learning: Elevate your candidate experience and learn how to scale your team (and its impact) by learning from the brightest minds in the industry. Don't trust your gut on hiring, train it through experiential learning.
- Recruiting toolkit: Stay up to date on hiring best practices and frameworks to inform your decisions, and meaningfully grow your recruiting career, while enabling your recruitment team with the latest people trends, software, and talent strategies.
- Exposure to talent: Amplify your personal and employer brand with unparalleled access to On Deck’s broader network of startups, scaleups and ambitious professionals worldwide, including panel discussions with high-demand candidates.
Think of ODR as the best recruiting conference you’ve attended that runs all year long with constant updates to curriculum and programming that you can benefit from at your own pace. What’s more, the curated tracks are segmented by industry and company growth stage to give fellows the opportunity to customize their learning experience.
Whether you’re a Director of Talent Acquisition at a Series A startup, or a Senior Recruiter at a multinational, ODR will enable you to deepen your industry expertise, build a career toolkit to strive for recruiting excellence, and form deep relationships with a highly-curated group of peers.
Meet the Founding Fellows!
We’re truly excited to bring together some of the brightest minds in the industry for the inaugural On Deck Data Recruiting cohort. As a fellow, you’ll have the opportunity to level up together, and shape the long-term vision and structure of ODR alongside these talented and ambitious leaders.
