Sourcing With Natural Intelligence

Natural - not Artificial! - intelligence works best in Sourcing. In this hands-on class, you will learn how to think like a Sourcer, no matter where you source - on Google, social networks, or professional sites.

For each site we cover, we will explain its specific search syntax, as well as the best practices for constructing your searches. We will review sourcing in associations, conferences, and online communities relevant to various industries. You will learn to produce working template X-Ray search strings for any site of interest and use the strings to find potential candidates. To illustrate the techniques, we will provide multiple examples with explanations.
