A sourcer is only as good as their tools. After all, without a functional email account, strong WiFi connection or a decent computer, the amount of work even the most committed and talented sourcer is able to accomplish is limited. But, assuming you have all of the above, what else out there can help you take your work to the next level? Well, you’re in luck, because in honor of the 2017 World's Greatest Sourcer competition, we spoke with sourcing guru and WGS judge, Shally Steckerl, to get an updated look at his favorite sourcing and productivity tools.
The competition to hire quality healthcare workers is on the rise. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 5 of the 10 fastest growing professions are in healthcare, which, as an industry, is poised to generate 2.3 million new jobs and experience 18 percent growth between 2016 and 2026. What’s more, between 2016 and 2026, the top 6 growing health care related roles -- home health aides, personal care aides, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapy assistants, and medical assistants, will each see between 29 and 47 percent growth.
But those are not the only healthcare professions slated for growth. Roles ranging from doctors of all specialties, registered nurses, healthcare administrations and occupational therapists will also see growing demand for their skills. One thing is clear: if you’re hiring for healthcare, the time is now to set yourself up with a competitive edge.
Two years ago, we worked with The Sourcing Insitute's Shally Steckerl to publish the first list of books every sourcer and recruiter needs to read. This year, to celebrate the launch of the 2017 World's Greatest Sourcer competition, we've worked with Shally again to assemble an updated version with some of our favorite recent reads.
You'll notice a few themes. Most of the books are focused on mastering and understanding communication skills, modern technology (like AI and automation), the fundamentals of human behavior, teamwork, and how to keep learning throughout your life. To different degrees, sourcing and recruiting at a high level requires each of these skills. Keeping them sharp will let you stay ahead of the curve in the always-evolving world of talent.
2017 is winding down but there’s still at least one more major recruiting show to go! Later this month, Entelo will take on the Sunshine State for the Recruiting Trends & Talent Tech Conference in Palm Beach from November 28 – 30. This event will explore the art and science of talent acquisition and spotlight the game changing impact artificial intelligence is having on sourcing, recruiting and candidate engagement.
It’s that time of year again. Entelo and The Sourcing Institute have again joined forces to bring you the World's Greatest Sourcer competition! Do you have what it takes?
Once again, the best of the best will go head to head to find out who is the finest talent sourcer in all the land. Last year’s top finishers, Patrick Moran and Katie Gechijian, walked away with $2,500 and $500 plus a complimentary admission to the Sourcing Institute’s certification program, respectively, in prizes. And this year that big winner could be you.
The competition kicks off Monday, November 20th with new challenges launching each Monday up until December 4th.
Jason Averbook, CEO of Leapgen and longtime industry thought leader joins Hiring on All Cylinders co-hosts Britt Ryan and Sean Simerly to share his views on what the future has in store for HR and recruiting technology.
