Social Recruiting, Magnetic Branding & Job Search 2.0 Speaker
Social Recruiting Expert
Shahid Wazed finds joy in connecting with and helping people at scale. He revolutionized the recruiting industry by bringing 'care' back into recruitment through the 'City of Edmonton Jobs' page on Facebook, which won two prestigious awards in just one and a half years: 'Standard of Excellence Award' from the New Media Institute in New York and 'Thomas H. Muehlenbeck Award for Excellence in Local Government' from Alliance for Innovation!
He hosted Canada's 1st Social Recruiting Seminar, which was attended by recruitment professionals from most of Canada's Top 100 employers.
He frequently shares his groundbreaking ideas that are backed by two years of social recruiting research at leading conferences worldwide.
He frequently takes time off to travel as he believes life is not all about work. However, he does pay the price now for the moments he wants to enjoy in the near future.
With that said, let's connect to continue this conversation. I know you want to.
