People aggregators and other Chrome plugins – no doubt sourcing is the game of recruiting magpies. We all love to play with shiny objects. But did you know that many sourcing tools can be, basically, created by you? You don’t always need to buy tools (or register for free every week with a new fake email account :D). You can make yourself many of them! It’s not that difficult… In this very hands-on session Balazs Paroczay, Sourcing Strategist and Founder of Edlington will guide you through some of those sourcing tools that you can create to automate searches, build massive data visualisation or create a Boolean string repository etc. Don’t join this session without your laptop – some serious sourcing is ahead!

Building a successful sourcing function can be seen as a simple exercise. Here is the regular receipt: hire a few experienced sourcers, buy some LinkedIn Recruiter seats and tell your recruiters that they can now stop booleaning. Olala, the sourcing SWAT team is here! The vast majority of corporations start building a sourcing function just like this… and then no one understands why things do not turn into a sourcing nirvana. Why do we still struggle to fill our roles if we have these experienced sourcers? why do we still need to pay for tools, advertisement and sourcing licences? why do we still run more-or-less the same Time-to-Fill? why are the Hiring Managers still not our best friends? Building a well-working sourcing capability is probably one of the most difficult and complex gigs in recruiting.
