“I have a list of technical user groups and post my open positions, but I don’t get much of a reply.”
Hilarious, right? I take it back. If this is you, you probably don’t think it’s all that funny because you’re probably dealing with a very unhappy and unsympathetic hiring manager.
Everyone thinks Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn when we say “social media,” completely forgetting that user groups have not only been around a lot longer than these communities, but that they are more useful than ever to recruiters, especially when sourcing for very specialized skillsets.
While recruiters still use these online communities in their search efforts, many don’t go beyond hope and pray — post requirements and pray for replies — with disappointing results.
In this webinar, netPolarity Sourcing Manager and MARS Head Instructor Mark Tortorici will shed light on technical user groups, and forums and show attendees how to actively mine these online communities using advanced sourcing tricks to make the most out of them, exponentially expanding your talent pool for passive and hard-to-reach candidates. We will focus on technology-specific user groups, diversity-related groups, and other technical groups & forums like Github and Stackoverflow.
Of course, in true Mark Tortorici fashion, we will also go through search string examples that you can immediately put to use after the webinar.
