You will broaden your sourcing skills by identifying and exploring data-rich sites, discovering new places to find candidates, and venturing into previously unexplored sources.

Leave with invaluable tips and examples for sourcing from social media sites.
Day 1 - Sourcing without Linkedin
While LinkedIn is a popular source for Recruiters, it's important to note that less than 20% of professionals maintain an active and up-to-date profile. Relying solely on LinkedIn can cause you to miss up on up to 90% of potential information on other websites.
Our class offers a comprehensive solution to this challenge. We'll teach you to identify data-rich sites that align with your target industries, roles, and geographies and extract candidate details from professional associations, discussion forums, and specialty social networks. We'll also show you how to cross-reference partial information.
By learning these techniques, you'll expand your sourcing capabilities and uncover many potential candidates you won't find through LinkedIn alone.
