Recruiters and sourcers from Sydney to San Francisco and everywhere in between are using the same tactics and tools to locate passive talent today. Sites such as LinkedIn® and Facebook® have become the primary resources that recruiting professionals use to find candidates. That’s not a bad thing, but it does mean we are all fishing from a similar pool of candidates. In this day and age with all the tools available, that’s not necessarily cutting edge recruiting. The goal of this session is to remind recruiters and sourcers that there is more to a targeted recruiting plan than just networking sites. It will shed light on the fact that, in order to be truly revolutionary, sometimes it’s necessary to combine cutting edge sourcing tactics with long forgotten methods to outwit the competition and find the best talent!
• Understand how “social professional” networking sites are impacting the recruiting landscape and how other sites can be leveraged to find the best candidates that no one else is seeing.
• Explore recruitment branding best practices using search engines, mobile tools, and more of today’s candidate-friendly sites.
• Utilize time-saving and organizational tools to help manage and target searches to focus on finding candidate information that can help lead to more cost effective hires.
• Learn proven tactics for extracting resumes, profiles, attendee lists, membership directories and other candidate lists from a wide array of search engines to build a candidate pool and increase recruitment success.
