Do This, Not That: Talent Sourcing for Speed & Success

Monday 10:00 – 11:00 AM

Session Description

Learn the efficient, metrics-driven process to recruit the best candidates online and by phone and, like FBI Agents, learn the what-you-say and what-you-don’t-say via NLP/Neuro-linguistics programming. Conni LaDouceur, President and Chief Sourcing Strategist, ExecuQuest Corp., will share the most advanced, efficient free tools/internet results and dissect actual calls identifying and interviewing on-target talent to hire or place the most qualified talent, not the most obvious. Hear how you identify complete intact teams, reporting relationships, direct dial numbers, email addresses, etc., in any industry, any function, worldwide, from individual contributors to senior management with empowering search/research best practices. Excel in recruiting for the most challenging open positions via this fun, fearless formula and improve your reputation as the Deliverer of Results! We have honed these direct and disarming techniques over 30 years and have a loyal client base including Fortune 100 companies, emerging companies, leading agencies and RPOs. Our success is entirely dependent on our critical thinking skills, internet strategies and phone expertise; we have never posted a position online nor subscribed to a job board. You name it, we’ve done it and we will show you how. Our programs are unique, dynamic, interactive and results-driven.
