As the economy continues to recover from the pandemic, employers are looking to increase headcounts to keep up with demand and backfill vacant positions, but unfortunately, finding skilled talent is even more difficult than it was before COVID-19 hit. Fears of contracting the new Delta variant, lack of childcare, and bigger unemployment checks are all playing a part in employers’ inability to hire talent quickly.

Despite the vast number of candidates to choose from, finding qualified talent is like finding a needle in a haystack. Therefore, it is imperative that recruiters and HR professionals take a proactive approach to recruitment. This is where “sourcing” comes into play.

Sourcing is a talent acquisition discipline which is focused on the identification, assessment, and engagement of skilled candidates through proactive recruiting techniques. Sourcing is built on research, science, emotional intelligence, and technology. But often times the role gets mired by all of the tooling, job boards, and spam. So, how can you successfully source top talent and avoid these distractions?

You’re in luck! Mike “Batman” Cohen is back for another installment of our 2021 Recruiting Master Class: Sourcing Strategies to Combat the 2021 Hiring Struggle. In this interactive, highly engaging event, Batman will take a deep dive into what the sourcing function is supposed to look like, how it functions, and how to do it most efficiently. Along the way, you’ll learn some amazing tips, tricks, tech, and hopefully have a few laughs!

This event will be broken into three, 90-minute sessions and you’ll also have the opportunity to have your questions answered in real time throughout the event. See what past attendees have to say about this highly anticipated event:

“This program was GREAT. I wasn’t sure what to expect after having looked at the agenda and not knowing what Boolean searches were before attending. This was honestly one of the best 5+ hour webinars I have ever attended.
