Corporate Sourcers/Recruiters: Do you collect competitive intelligence on competitors in your industry to make sourcing efforts more effective?

Sourcers Guild member Bill Kaminsky is asking (over in the Sourcers Guild group on LinkedIn) :

Disaster Planning in Haiti

What can be done?

I just received an email forwarded by a trauma surgeon at WVU Med Center, from another trauma surgeon explaining his group's attempt to help in Haiti. I hope this isn't too long to post- it was very interesting to me:

Hey! You talkin' to me?

There was a recent post scolding harangue on one of the networks that started off as a lambasting against people who spend time on other social networks (like Twitter) that descended quickly into an angry and bitter outlash at what the mightily aggrieved author considered half-ass trainers that were sourcers or recruiters – it went on and on about how those that can’t do something teach and – well, you know the drill.

Round 1 "Sourcing (the starting point) is in no way even in the same LEAGUE as Selling" ~ Jerry Albright

Others try to rename what we do just to appear different, and that’s cool too. Why? Because in the final analysis, the nature of the activities we conduct as we find, identify and reach out to the talent employers desperately seek does constantly and drastically evolve yet our role remains critical.… Continue
