“...what is done with love is well done.” -Vincent Van Gogh

In these “unexpected” times, to say the least, Irina Shamaeva had a great idea. How about gathering great sourcing speakers and trainers and offer a, once in a lifetime, made with love, online sourcing learning day? Immediately, we said yes and here it is, the online sourcing learning day was born.

Social Sourcing

How efficiently do you source on Social Media?

In this talk, David presents an efficient methodology for identifying and evaluating social Sourcing targets in this talk. Then, he concludes by detailing the most productive ways to search, identify, and engage potential candidates across three of today’s top social sites!

Key Takeaways: 1) How to identify ‘social’ sites used by your target professionals. 2) How to efficiently evaluate social sites. 3) My evaluation of the top social sites used today.

‘Visualize Success’ as the Google Search Principle

When everyone searches on Google, they ask a question, and the first page has the answer. But Sourcers must search differently, by using terms they expect to find. “Get” the idea, and you are in business! Advanced operators will help and I will cover them.

Seriously, though, there are many conferences and events, but it’s rare to get this many top sourcing trainers together in one place. Rarer still for that place to be your living room “office”!

Curiosity killed the cat, but our digital pass brought him back.
