Accelerate Your Internet Research! How to Source for the Most Qualified, Unidentifiable, Passive Talent!
Did you know that more than one-third of all employed individuals are not discoverable on the web?
Of the 144 million employed individuals in the U.S., approximately 80 million are said to be discoverable on the web… Just think of the 60+ million people that are missed when doing web-based sourcing only! Moreover, think of ALL of the companies competing for the same web-discovered talent and all of the talent that goes untapped because recruiters and sourcers do not know how to identify the highly-qualified, passive candidates their Hiring Managers’ seek.
If your goal is to present the most qualified candidates, you will greatly benefit from these proactive, cold-calling techniques. Utilizing this “forgotten” sourcing channel in ways perfected by the leading, retained executive recruiting firms and drawn from Search/Research Success™ by ExecuQuest, this session demonstrates the “how-to’s” of successful and ethical, telephone talent mapping. Not only will you learn to identify the companies that possess the right talent for a given role and overcome the challenges of recruiting via the phone, but also the steps to identify, in organization chart form, the qualified talent your Hiring Manager most wants to hire.
This is the only program that delivers ethical, passive candidate identification in organization chart form…don’t miss it!
