A Management Team today asked me in reaction on what is happening in the world of filling jobs, where they throw more money, increase the volume on the “we are hiring -song” on all platforms out there, etc… “our world”
The world of recruiting is going crazy…
What if we stop all the recruitment spend, no more sourcing, no more persuasion, no more adds, no more tap into the community, no more job fairs and yes no more agencies…
What will happen?
What do you think?
Will people still be able to find their next challenging job?
Would the company still be able to grow?
Glen Cathy opened Sosueu 2016 with a great deck on Social Engineering. Social Engineering is as old as people started to communicate. Funny about the hacks he gave on Social Engineering is, that lots of these hacks seem to be normal, but being aware of the techniques makes it a great asset to your daily tasks .
As always Sourcing Summit is about sourcing, but also about inspiring Sourcers to crawl out of there tunnel vision. New this year was the Pre Conference event: #SosuHacks… Even more reasons to join next year 🙂
In preparation of my presentation this year, I have been thinking, why it takes that long in most of the companies before Sourcing gets its spot in the recruitment marketing mix.
Most of the time, the biggest hurdle to take is to convince the Hiring manager.
If you were not at Sosueu 2016:
And that is what they did during my visit at JobandTalent in Madrid
All people worked on this video, big thanks!
Clive I see you soon again!
Martijn Hemminga, owner at Recruitmentsystemen.nl came to Paris last October to see what is happening in the world of HRTech. During his visit at the venue he has spoken with some of the Dutch Delegates, like Cammio, Appical and People Sourcing Crew.
The interview tells you (in Dutch) why people come to HRTech, what is the holy grail in sourcing and what are cool tools like Gild, Talentwunder and Benify. And what are my plans for 2016….
World Domination… well to start with, and than save the rest of the universe…. It’s all in the name…
The other day Glenn Gutmacher asked me to translate the official Voting site for all my friends outside of the Netherlands 🙂
Well there is a tool for that… Currently a voting contest is going on to become the Most Influential Recruiter 2015 in the Netherlands, actually the contest is how to get as many votes as possible, once you have been nominated… So yes… They pushed me to win this contest… To win, I need your votes… I could win the overall competition and also in the Agency category… Although People Sourcing Crew is a different breed among the agencies. I hope you feel like to contribute to this weird competition by voting for Gordon Lokenberg and make me win the award!
Here we have the voting site in English
If that doesn’t work for you, try the original (Dutch) link.
This why I got nominated: (Dutch) “Er zijn weinig sourcende recruiters die niet ooit een sourcing workshop of training van Gordon hebben gevolgd. Hij weet al jarenlang alle tips en trucs die er ook maar zijn om iemand online te vinden uit te vogelen en over te brengen. Zijn grootste probleem is misschien zelfs dat hij lastige materie er te makkelijk uit laat zien. Door de organisatie van (12! edities van) TruAmsterdam zorgt hij er twee keer per jaar voor dat iedereen die hart voor het prachtige recruitment vak heeft kennis kan delen, kan netwerken en het vakgebied professioneler is geworden: dat kun je met recht Invloedrijke recruiter noemen. Ten slotte is hij in een jaar tijd van een eenmansoperatie gegroeid naar een volwassen sourcing bedrijf met twaalf collega’s van uiteenlopende achtergronden. Ik denk dat hij zichzelf nog het meest verbaast door te laten zien dat hij een goede manager is, die z’n collega’s vertrouwen geeft en tot hecht team laat groeien.”
PS…… Sorry for the spam, it kills my reputation… But I would love to have your vote 🙂 kind a like: Okay, let’s get this one in.
Patrick , Thank you for the nomination! Next time you go after the votes 🙂
