Terri Coligan and Gail Houston about Recruiting and Social Media

Earlier today Terri Coligan and Gail Houston presented us the INTUIT way of working the Social Media Madness.

My thoughts on online recruitment are close to what they have done the past period online. I like that 🙂
Though they are still in “beta” all the pilots they do start to bring them good revenue. Succes is there.

ps… they haven’t worked out the slideshare possibilities yet for this presentation..= thanks Brandon

Sheila Greco about Telephone and Research

Sheila Greco is the first keynote speaker at Sourcecon:

Sheila is bringing back the old days in Recruiting: Research and use the phone…. do you remember 🙂
What happened the past 20 years in Recruiting:

Telephone research: When you ask, you receive!, then internet came up:
Internet: never says no

Nowadays we also use
Social networking: sometimes there is a waiting period and is not always accurate

And we do have advanced
research tools: use what works for you

Telephone Research:
in many cases yields the best candidates and info for future assignments

Finding candidates is easy using the web, but people may be beneath the surface.. You need to dig!

When we had NO INTERNET: the resources were very limited.
Resources consist of research lists along with previous recruiting call lists, The Red Book and Industry magazines.

The Telephone research strategy: tell the full story contact by contact. It leads the recruiter to the hidden candidates!

SourcingLab with Glenn Gutmacher

Sourcecon 2010 opens with SouceLab, presented by Glenn Gutmacher.

This session start with what are we looking for.
To be clear about what you really are searching for, you start with the inventory stages..
First you want to start a discussion with your hiring manager or client about what you are going to do, what job might be related, what keywords you are able to use, what companies they work, and what companies you can’t approach.

Once you get over this, you decide where to do your search first, and focus on that channel: like online communities, your crm or outlook, databases like google or yahoo.

T!P: to get similar jobtitles, go to whatever jobboard and use the jobtitle you got from the hiring manager, Search for this jobtitle and synonyms will be shown by the jobboard.

More info will follow!
