SCN webinars

In conjunction with the first SourceCon Challenge of 2011 that is currently underway, we are pleased to present to you a training webinar to learn about Google Custom Search Engines – what they are, how to create them, and how to use them in your sourcing function. Join us Thursday, June 9 from 1pm – 2pm Eastern time as we bring you expert knowledge from three sourcers who have created some amazing Custom Search Engines: Dan Harris, Mike Notaro, and Irina Shamaeva.

In this 60-minute webinar, you will learn the basics of Google Custom Search Engines as our panelists show examples of CSEs they’ve created as well as take you step-by-step through how to make your own. If you plan to participate in the SourceCon Challenge, this is a must-attend; but even if you’re not, this will be a great educational opportunity for you with some of the best sourcers in the business.

About the panelists:

Dan Harris is a talent acquisition sourcer at Yahoo! He has previously sourced for Ebay, NetApp, VeriSign, Hyperion Solutions, and BEA Systems. Dan loves to source and proactively find new tools to help all of us.

Michael Notaro is a sourcing specialist currently working for Accenture. He’s a two-time winner of the SourceCon GrandMaster Sourcing Challenge (2007, 2008) and in 2006 he took first place in the AIRS Extreme Sourcing Competition, winning the event with a Google Custom Search Engine he created.

Irina Shamaeva is a sourcer, a recruiter, an Internet researcher, and an active member of the sourcing community. She searches on Google a lot but is not quite satisfied with its capabilities – she feels that creating Custom Search Engines is a good way to boost Google’s search capabilities and have more fun sourcing at the same time.

Prior to this, she worked as a recruiter for the Platform Services team at Concur Technologies, and as a talent sourcer with the Windows Phone team at Microsoft finding software development engineers. She also previously served as the original Editor of SourceCon. All-in-all, Amybeth has been working as a recruitment sourcing professional for over a decade and enjoys finding interesting people for great opportunities.

In related activities outside of work, Amybeth is deeply involved with local recruiting organizations – she previously served on the Board of the Northwest Recruiters Association (NWRA) and is currently actively involved with the Sourcing 7 group in Seattle as a founding member and the current President.

Amybeth is a University of Florida graduate (go Gators!) and currently lives just north of Seattle, WA. You can connect with her on Twitter at @researchgoddess.
