Design Recruitment…

Screenshot 2017-10-30 at 14.50.06

Currently I am working for Idella, former Piramide groep, in the Netherlands.

They have rebranded their 30 yrs old Fintech company today. Also they have outlayed their development process: Design Thinking.

Being their Recruiter, looking to recruit a lot of .NET Developers in the greater Amsterdam Area, I love to translate the Idella way of working into my way of working to hire the .NET Developers.

And renamed the recruitment process.

They, the Developers empathize, define, ideate, prototype, test, implement….

What should the recruiter be doing:

  1. understand with whom they have their coffee – empathize
  2. create a skillset to work with, to evaluate them on – define
  3. campaign in the right area – ideate
  4. find people that are interested – prototype
  5. evaluate their hard and soft skills – test
  6. offer them the job – implement

Social Engineering at #Sosueu 2106

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.

World Domination #HRTechWorld 2015

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…

Sourcing as a Strategy – the slides

Ah you were not at Talent Leaders Connect in Amsterdam?

These slides I used at The first Talent Leaders Connect, 5th of November 2015 in Amsterdam: Talent Leaders Connect is the largest Talent Acquisition & HR event series in the UK. The events combine industry leading keynote talks, interactive discussion sessions and relaxed social networking opportunities.

And yes there is a full story to come with these slides, I like to tell you again, just call me +31642121451 and I’ll take you through this amazing story.

Topic: What is Sourcing, Why think of a sourcing strategy, How to realize your Strategy

Global Talent Identification

Wow, that’s been a while, me writing a post on something… I think other platforms got a hold on me.

In the meanwhile the economy started to become more positive and finally the moon seems to be able to cover the sun… So time to write again.

The reason why I wanted to post this blog is, I just wanted to let you know how things are going.
Another turn in my career path has taken place.

Still recruiting, yes.

Still sourcing, yes.

Still scouting for the best talent out there, yes.

Still doing cool internet and mobile things in recruitment, yes

Oh and the all the other stuff, like training and speaking as well.

A lot of the work I – no – We do, since I run a Crew nowadays, working on all of the above, the People Sourcing Crew, has to do with Global Talent Identification.

The work we do is like talent mapping (mapping out where people live that do what you like them to do) but a little more specific:

Global Talent Indentification

Gaining insight of who is doing what we like them to do, where do they do that now and most importantly how do we get connected with these persons.

So once you start telling people what People Sourcing Crew is doing: Global Talent Identification – you get clients in who like talent to be identified, no matter where the live on the globe.

That’s it for now,

Linkedin Contacts Cool Feature

Reading booleanstrings.com, one great blog about sourcing, curated by Irina Shamaeva

Okay, so Linkedin came up with a renewed feature including app, in US store only btw, so that is annoying. Linkedin Contacts
Also to get your linkedin contacts synced with the new feature you have to refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh, refresh and at some point you think everything is synced.

No, it says all your contacts are now synced, but the actual contact list is not.. not yet.

So if you go back to contacts, only a few are in there..
To solve that you have click connections in the side menu: again and again and again and again and again and again and again and again at some point it will only add another 40 per refresh. Funny thing is during this process of synchronizing you’ll see next to “all contacts a different number presented that on top of the contact list… usually a difference between 10-14 connections… Btw if you just wait the machine keeps on running his sync, it is just not as quick as me hitting the refresh button, expecting to get it all at once.

And in the end, when you think it’s done and the numbers are right, I still notice my Linkedin homepage tells me I have even more connections than added to the Linkedin contacts feature…

In other words Irina you wrote this: (albeit still very buggy) between brackets, but you can leave the brackets for now 🙂
Having all this said. Now exploring the feature: big plus, Tagging possible per group of people, finding people in your network based on email addresses, like e.g. give me all that has listed ebuddy.com email or have a hotmail account etc.

The nicest thing about this, I can finally work through my 30K contacts again in a quick and efficient way.

Thank you Linkedin 🙂

I wrote this long comment btw on booleanstrings.com..  that is why I thought I could also repost this on my blog 🙂
