Jeremy Roberts was the editor of SourceCon from 2013 to 2016. Prior to joining the ERE Media team, he spent over a decade working as a recruiter, sourcer, and sourcing manager. This time was spent in diverse environments, including third-party agency settings (retained and contingent), recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) providers, and internal corporate HR departments.

Since leaving SourceCon, he’s continued to work at the intersection of talent acquisition and technology, where he aims to find the right balance between humans and machines. Occasionally he thinks of something interesting to say, but normally he just keeps his head down and does his job. Jeremy resides in Ponder, Tex.
