  3. Mastodon, The Blue Devil, chatGPT and more.

What’s Changing in Sourcing for 2023?

From a sourcing perspective, what i’m really encouraging people to do is to try and stay as up to date as possible. Because those are the people that are gonna retain their jobs.

What is changing at the moment is, it’s not all about what you say, Brian, the scraping and those kinds of things, it’s how to be effective for a company without costing them a lot of money. So not spending a lot on like, LinkedIn Recruiter licenses.

Job boards, do they still have a place? It’s all about how do we still source, but we do it more creatively, maybe without such big overheads.
