Talent Sourcing Turbocharging via Free and Low-Cost Automation and Productivity Tools and Methods
Glenn Gutmacher, North America Sourcing Group Manager, Avanade Inc. & founder, Recruiting-Online.com

Does your talent sourcing need to support multiple recruiters, or do you manage a recruiting team that needs to figure out how to scale its sourcing efforts more efficiently?  Whether your leads go into an ATS or a recruiting CRM, then you first need to look at THE FRONT end of the funnel.  What can save you time so you can fill it faster?

This session is a part 2 to complement the methods and tools that Glenn showed in his session last year (if you don’t have that slide deck, get it so you’ll be ready for more!) with totally different ones that aren’t just whiz-bang, but also proven to save time for recruiters and sourcers, with a particular focus on free browser-based add-ons, apps compatible with both computers and mobile devices, productivity boosters within the ubiquitous MICROSOFT OFFICEsuite, and (of course) tools and tricks to improve search results.
