Future of Sourcing

Indiahrlivejune17 - Copy

Tossing over a bunch of resumes, making lot of cold calls and tracking down that perfect candidate are all a little too old school. Now sourcing is more proactive and much easier than it was before. With the use of social media tools and technologies and even social aggregators like LinkedIn Recruiter, Facebook Graph Search, Dice Open Web search interface, Entelo, Talent Bin the searchability and visibility for both recruiters as well as candidates have increased. Now anybody can find anyone easily.

In addition to your conventional ATS and online resume database, your social community adds an unprecedented human capital database. But why it is still so hard to uncover those hidden talents?  What makes a sourcer succeed? How can a sourcer/recruiter significantly reduce the time taken to recruit and increase quality of hire? All in all what is the future of sourcing?

Join us while our eminent speakers, sourcing experts and global guests discuss the  Future of Sourcing, What it was and what it is now? ’ on June 17th,  Tuesday at 8pm IST / 9.30 am CST /10.30 am EST.

    How Are recruiting and Sourcing Different?

  2. T V Rao says:

    I think sourcing has over focused on numbers and revenues and have not utilised the competency knoweldge. I would have expected them to be more scientific in sourcing by defining roles and competencies and finding matches. What do you think?
