Bill Boorman's 3 day extravaganza for recruitment knowledge sharing, TruLondon II , has kicked off today with a packed house of recruitment professionals learning from 5 sourcing legends.
TruSource was devised following the success of the Sourcing track at TruLondon I in November.
Over from the US are Jim Stroud, Marie Journey and Irina Shamaeva, from Toronto Geoff Webb and waving the UK flag is SouceCon emerging star Katherine Robinson.
The sessions have been split, with around 20 in each group learning everything from the basics of web search terminology, to the more intricate Boolean Search strings. We will join up at the end of the day to share their learning and experience of entering this new world of sourcing.
Naturally, we learned that many different types of sourcing are required, as not everyone is on the net, nor do they have an online CV.
Creative approaches to searching directories, industry bodies, the payroll department at companies and more have been shared.
Offers of pre-configured search strings and a terrific new magazine have been offered to attendees.
The conversations will continue with the Sourcing track Thursday and Friday.
