Our program will revolve around the ever-changing atmosphere of available candidates and how Farm Credit has utilized Candidate Personas to frame the future of hiring during the current environment of candidate scarcity. Also, how Farm Credit is preparing to continue to advance Talent Acquisition practices to ensure a robust and available workforce for the future. 

Participants will leave the presentation knowing the state of the current candidate market and resources that may be utilized to attract top talent into their organizations. They will feel equipped to utilize candidate personas as a tool to expand their organization's external talent acquisition functionality and internal talent mobility.
