Below, we've tried to provide as much information on each individual conference as possible, although it should be noted that some of the later conferences will probably have more information available nearer the time - so it may be worth checking the websites closer to the dates provided.

This list is in chronological order to allow you to keep track of how many recruiting and HR conferences there are for each month, giving you plenty of opportunity to attend one or two this year, network, learn, and hopefully take away something valuable from your experience.
