Sourcing Rehab: Kick Your Addiction to Professional Networking Sites

In the past 15 years, internet recruiting has been dominated by professional networking sites, but changes are taking place in online candidate behavior and recruiters need to know how this is going to impact their profession in the near future. In 2018, recruiters need to know how to find and connect with candidates outside of the sites that they have become so dependent on. They need to know the next practices for sourcing and recruiting–best practices won’t be enough anymore. In this session, you will learn how to: Examine the changes taking place with professional networking sites; Show recruiters and sourcers the other options available for finding candidates; Fast sourcing ideas to make locating candidates off the beaten path easier.
