UK Sourcers News – 6th June 2012

UK Sourcers News

We’ve had a small influx of new Facebook “Likes” this week – thank you!

A new UK Sourcing blogger has emerged – Why not check out the Sourcer Tips blog. I think the author is trying to stay somewhat anonymous, which is a great shame 🙁

Events

Today is Onrec’s Gravity Recruiting event in London. See live tweets from me throughout the event.

Don’t forget to join #SRCHAT via Twitter this evening at 8pm BST. #SRCHAT is a weekly Social Recruiting Twitter Chat. Lisa Scales of Tribepad and Jerome Ternynck of Smart Recruiter will be tonight’s expert guests, discussing Social Media and its impact on the Candidate Experience. I recommend using Twubs to follow and join in with the conversation. If you missed #SRCHAT last week when we talked about Social Recruiting and Facebook then catch up on the crexia blog.
