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.
