About Chris Hoyt
As a mobile marketing/recruiting evangelist and self proclaimed Social ‘X’ addict, Chris Hoyt has been pushing the boundaries of each aspect of full-cycle recruiting for over 14 years – most recently as the Associate Director of Talent Attraction at AT&T.
In his current role he leads the full scale integration of social media and mobile marketing within a workforce strategy that included search engine marketing and optimization for talent attraction long before it was fashionable.
With a passion for breaking out of traditional recruitment practices and a background that includes training it’s no mystery that the combined teams of recruiters and sourcers working with Chris are constantly evolving and pushing the envelope of non-traditional talent attraction and recruitment. Whether functioning as a coach, team lead, or individual contributor it’s his top notch results using ‘out of the box’ strategies that have established him as a recruiting expert amongst peers and clients alike.
In a time where the return on investment for social media struggles to be defined within the recruiting and staffing world, Chris moves forward in an effort to show impact, scope of reach and brand influence by engaging and tracking both the candidate’s involvement and experience.
It’s this focus on Interactive Recruiting within social and mobile channels, big picture results and measurable gains that make Chris one of a handful in corporate America that can speak with authority on the topic of social media and recruitment.
