Sourcers need to fish in more than one pond. Most have mastered LinkedIn and have tinkered with other social networks, but even the best of us become complacent. Recently, I have been sourcing in EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) so I decided to take another dive into XING.
Since 2003, XING has grown to an estimated 14 million professionals (primarily located in Europe) supporting 16 languages. I make the distinction saying Professionals, because unlike LinkedIn you will not find many work-from-home, MLM, or wannabe authors here. Plus they all have last names!
