How to go from Average Joe to Sourcing Pro
In today’s talent acquisition environment relying on applicants to find your posting in a saturated market can be a recipe for disaster.

This session will provide a sourcing toolbox for the non sourcer that will includes tools, concepts, and techniques that can be put into play immediately.

Sourcing Utensils You Can't Cook Without
Believe it or not, not every kitchen utensil is used when making a meal. There are commonly used utensils, and then there are specialized ones for more unique dishes. Likewise, not every sourcing resource is used for every kind of search. In this session, David will provide you with fundamental search "utensils" that are essential to have in your sourcing "kitchen." And be prepared for a few helpful supplemental utensils to add to your drawer as well!
