Why I Love SourceCon – Learning From Great Sourcers and Recruiters

Feb 19, 2010

If you read the speaker’s bio on Eric Jaquith, it understates the real talent and influence that Eric has on the sourcing world. I think of Eric as the sourcer’s sourcer. If a sourcer needs a deep dive on a technology or a process, then Eric should be on your speed dial.

Last fall at ERE, I was discussing travel plans with a friend. I knew he had commuted from Atlanta to the conference by car with Eric. He mentioned that he was flying back to Atlanta and I curious why he did not want to travel by car with Eric (frankly, I cannot imagine a more interesting trip than being locked in a car for eight hours discussing sourcing, recruiting and business from Eric’s perspective). My friend replied that his brain still hurt from the trip down.

One of the aspects of SourceCon that I enjoy is learning and sharing. While most of my time will be spent learning from others, I also have an opportunity to share with the SourceCon audience. While I do not believe they are saving the best for last, I am the last speaker of the last day (Monday) and invite you to take a later flight and join me in a discussion of Employing Talent Communities to Rehumanize the Recruiting Process.
