A recent string over on the Sourcecon site challenged sourcers to think about what we’ve done to ourselves.  It asked, “Have We Been Our Own Worst Enemy?”

One contributor, Krista Bradford stated, in the string;

Does LinkedIn need a challenger?

There's rumble in the (recruiting) jungle about LinkedIn.

Is that any way to treat gift horses, LinkedIn?

 

On March 17, 2011 a tweet over on Twitter said:

"I need a new LI type place. It's expensive, people aren't responding anymore, and…

Phone Sourcing = Unique Results

 

Someone in the ASK Maureen group over on ERE asked a question in her pursuit to learn more about sourcing.

Difference Between Sourcing and Recruiting

I'm reformatting and re-editing the MagicMethod course.  Here's one of the lessons out of Module III.  I didn't change this lesson much because in the six years MagicMethod has been in circulation I still think this is good advice!
