Who can join?

Talent Brand Alliance is a community for talent attraction leaders owning the employer branding, recruitment marketing, or talent attraction programs telling their company or client's employee experience story, including:

Talent Acquisition Leadership | Recruitment Marketers | Recruitment Communications | Employment Brand Managers | Marketing Managers | Social Recruiting Community Managers | Employer Brand Consultants | Employee Experience Managers | HR and Recruiting Program Managers

Right now, our primary target for membership is: strategic practitioners tasked with telling the corporate employment experience story and leading a program either in-house or in a consulting or agency capacity. 

One of our initial goals is also to provide a forum for candid, unbiased, confidential info on potential vendors. This means no one in a sales or business development capacity is currently allowed. We are in a very intimate ecosystem and our relationships matter.
