The Purple Squirrel track session of day 2 consisted of 2 presentations, They were Sourcing Utensils by David Nicola, and Source Like a Boss by Beth Theodore.
First up Source like a Boss by Beth Theodore. The gist of this was using job boards, and employer branding. Between Indeed, Monster and Careerbuilder there are over 358 million visitors per month. The gist is job boards still have a place in your sourcing strategy. Next branding, first impressions matter, so step up even with regards to job descriptions etc.
