Crowd sourcing and Event hopping as I like to call it is picking up some steam with sourcers. With LinkedIn following suite to the major job boards, the luster is quickly fading and so too is the exclusiveness of your  results.  A little while back I believe it was Glen Cathey of Boolean Black Belt that said, “Go ahead and pat yourself on the back” Because you’ve just found the same results as your competitors.

The goal of the game is to break through the obvious and connect with those that may not turn up in your standard searching activities.

@SuperRecruiter shares another strong technique to add to our series on sourcing with LinkedIn

3 Quick keys to keep in mind:

  • You are leveraging this tool to make a connection and not recruit
  • You need to connect and take the conversation offline as quickly as you can
  • If you are attending the conference you should be using this as a way to connect with available targeted talent
