05/20/2021 at 9:00 AM (EDT)   |  60 minutes A strong foundation is essential when bearing down in a hurricane. With all of the tools, AI, and other technological advancements in recruiting, it is imperative for a TA to have a firm grasp on the basics in order to utilize the tools (or lack thereof) to their fullest potential. Understanding that sourcing goes beyond just searching for buzz words from a job description - the keys to success include high value targeting, genuine messaging, consistent follow up, and a thoughtful opening conversation. Join Jamie Durkin, Global Head of Talent Attraction for Mercury Systems for an engaging conversation around the successes their team has seen using a variety of sourcing tools and approaches.
