UK Sourcers News – 17th December 2012

UK Sourcers News

Christmas Sourcing Contest

Santa

We posted a Christmas sourcing contest on Friday, as yet no one has managed to answer my call for help. There is a hamper of goodies in it for the winner so if you have not taken a look yet then you should… there might be some clues later today.

UK Sourcers Meetup – Friday 11th January

This is the latest in our series of “hack” style events designed to bring recruiters and sourcers together to help solve each other’s problems and share tips and tricks.

All tickets for the meetup are currently allocated but we’re hoping to release some more later today to people on the Eventbrite Waitlist. If you have a ticket but find that you can’t attend, please let us know ASAP so that we can give the ticket to someone else.

If your company would be interested in hosting a UK Sourcers Meetup then do get in touch with Katharine.

Social Media News

Twitter Profiles

As of 12th December everyone has the new look Twitter profile – have you uploaded a header image?

The New LinkedIn Profiles

The new LinkedIn profiles seem to have rolled out to everyone! This has had some interesting effects if you were using apps to share content on your profile. Here’s the official breakdown of what is gone from LinkedIn. You can now add media links to your LinkedIn profile though, so take a look at that and consider making it easier for people to find out more about you.

You can also edit your LinkedIn profile on the go now via LinkedIn’s mobile apps.

Is there any news I’ve missed? If there’s anything you would like to see included in future Sourcing News posts then do get in touch 🙂
