Jacob Darr is an author, speaker, and Founder of Talent Acquisition Blueprint. Placing people in their dream jobs since he was 15 years old, Jacob has always been a recruiter at heart. He has worked for private family owned companies, private equity companies, and Fortune 500 companies – starting as a recruiter and growing to Chief Talent Officer and Corporate Human Resource Officer. At every company he worked for, he found better quality candidates at a much faster pace relative to other recruiters.
In his years in corporate, he learned one thing: there is NO blueprint to effective recruiting in the corporate world right now. He decided to leave the corporate world because he realized the impact he was having needed to be replicated.. Since then, he’s been committed to disrupting the HR space in both mindset, strategy, and operation.

“I never knew the power of Jacob’s Succession Planning model. Our business is like Fort Knox as it relates to talent in waiting. When we have a departure, we already have a plan and a person. This is invaluable.”
3 Strategies To Have Your Top Leaders Recruit & Train Their Successor/Future Leaders In The Green Room
Think Like A Marketer, Hire Like A Champion
In this talk, I introduce company recruiters to a new way of looking at recruiting plans. With over 20 years of disrupting the HR space, and leading multiple at-scale recruiting efforts, I know that effective recruiting can be predictable and cost effective ONLY if we approach the process as a marketer. Thinking like marketers allows recruiting teams to attract and nurture candidates in an ongoing basis. By focusing on a consistently ACTIVE pipeline, recruiters can ensure a wide and diverse range of talent at the time of filling a position. It is a proactive, not reactive approach to recruiting.
