Tearing Down the Myth of Complicated Sourcing


The amount of user-generated content available on the web today continues to amass at an unprecedented rate. Navigating that information to locate great candidates can be challenging even for experienced sourcers and recruiters. However, in this day of readily available “people info” on the web, it doesn’t require smoke and mirrors and complicated hacks to find great candidates, it just takes some smarts and a little bit of tenacity.

With so much noise about different tactics for sourcing candidates today, it can be overwhelming and even intimidating for recruiters. It’s not necessary to use all of the tools that seem to be the hottest and trending sites for candidate sourcing, but it is important to use the most beneficial tools that get to the right people quickly. This session is built to teach attendees how to filter out the noise and use the right resources that are available today for getting to candidates fast. Use what works and ignore the rest.

 Figuring out the path of least resistance will be the focus of this interactive sourcing workshop. The session will explore how to locate relevant candidate leads quickly and without a lot of complex searches. It will help both experienced and beginning professionals learn how to find people information that is readily available on the web. Recruiters need to be imaginative in their approach to sourcing top talent today and this session will help attendees redefine their daily recruiting activities.

This session will cover:

  • A variety of less traveled sites that sourcers can utilize to quickly produce targeted leads without complex searches
  • How to be smart and efficient to accomplish sourcing goals in a limited timeframe
  • The best free resources for locating quality candidates • How to leverage uncommon sites to find “people info”
  • How to be bold and move beyond searching for just resumes to locate relevant professional information from a variety of web resources.

Who Should Attend:

Recruiters, researchers, business development staff, or anyone whose job involves identifying and developing new client prospects in the staffing industry. Even the most experienced professionals will leave this session with fresh awareness and strategies in sourcing.
