May 19th Virtual Event

RecruitPhilly is excited to offer a complimentary virtual event with Jeremy Eskenazi, Riviera Advisors.  On Thursday, May 19, 2022, from 11:00 am EST-12:00 pm EST. 

Talent Acquisition - Self-Motivation in Challenging and Stressful Times

Uncover some of the self-motivation keys and techniques for HR and Talent Acquisition leaders and practitioners.  Jeremy will share techniques to rise above the unprecedented pressure, high volumes and the noise from hiring managers and candidates.  

Being a talent acquisition pro is difficult, often filled with a lot of stress, high hiring volumes, and a lot of pressure from often thankless and fickle stakeholders including hiring managers and candidates.  This quick intro session will provide you with key tips on how to motivate yourself and transform seemingly negative situations into positive and motivational opportunities.  

During this mini-session, you'll get an introduction to:

  • Understand the key tips on how to motivate yourself in the face of limited or no positive feedback from stakeholders

  • Learn how to 'walk away' with a smile at the end of every work day to be ready for the next, even if it's a 'bad' day.

  • Gain knowledge on how to solicit feedback from stakeholders so that you can actively fill your own positive feedback 'bank'.

Recruit Philly Annual Conference

We hope your 2022 is off to a good start and that you are both mentally and physically healthy as we pass the two-year anniversary of COVID.  

You may remember that we had hoped to hold our next RecruitPhilly event this May; however, we strongly believe that this should be a live gathering, not a virtual one.  (We want you to get a lot of takeaways from the conference, but we don't want COVID to be one of them).  So instead, we are erring on the side of safety, and our current plan is to hold the conference on Thursday, September 22, 2022.  We will keep an eye on the situation as it unfolds, and we will continue to prioritize everyone's safety.  If we need to reschedule again, we will provide ample notice and provide full refunds.  

We look forward to seeing all of you again, IN PERSON, as soon as possible.


The RecruitPhilly Team


We created this event because we believe in the power of people. By creating a space where talent acquisition professionals from all backgrounds and industries can meet, chat, network, and build relationships, each participant will have the opportunity to grow exponentially.

The one day RecruitPhilly conference will inspire and lead you to insights in talent acquisition that you may never have imagined. You will leave with a better grasp of issues facing recruiting professionals and solutions to some of the topics on all of your minds: time, quality, and quantity. In addition to hearing from industry leaders and experts, you will be able to expand your recruiting community and learn from one another.
