Going from Average Joe to Sourcing Pro
Presented by Matthew LeBlanc, Talent Sourcing Manager, Microsoft

Sourcing is the new "science" in recruiting and can greatly transform how you find, engage, and ultimately hire talent. The ability to source (and land) external talent is becoming more important as organizations are finding tighter labor pools coupled with the need to bring new points of view and expertise from the market.
Going from an average Joe to a sourcing pro can mean the different between landing a transformative hire and being stuck with a requisition that just won't go away.

This discussion will focus on simple techniques that can be used in every database and search engine to bring back the talent that you need when you need it.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Using Boolean search logic to think creatively in how searches are run
  • Using open web search to find resumes and profiles
  • Free tools that can greatly help in finding qualified talent.
