Recruitment Expert Shally Steckerl Headlines October Event

Peterborough, NH – July 25, 2012 – Recruiting Trends, a leading resource for the employee recruitment industry, will host a fall Sourcing Summit at the Recruiting Trends Conference, which takes place Oct. 14-17 in Las Vegas.

The Sourcing Summit, a day dedicated to sharing the latest tools, techniques, tips, and tricks in candidate sourcing, takes place Oct. 17.

Globally recognized recruiting leader Shally Steckerl, founder of 4SCT, kicks off the Sourcing Summit with a keynote address, “Boolean Search Is Outdated, Forget About It! The Most Powerful Search Engines Are Ones You Custom-Build for Yourself.”

Steckerl has helped build sourcing organizations for top companies, including Microsoft, Google, Coca-Cola, Cisco, and Motorola. He now advises recruiting leaders at organizations like CH2M Hill, GE, Lockheed, and SourceRight how to successfully embed key sourcing initiatives into their current efforts, improve the performance of their existing sourcing teams, and establish sourcing functions from the ground up.

Passionate about encouraging people to experiment in their search for talent and color outside the lines with audacity, Steckerl is obsessed with sourcing and continuously strives to probe for practical solutions where no one else has looked. As a result, he has gained a reputation for delivering the courage recruiting leaders need to walk the edge to success in today’s over-informed world.

The Sourcing Summit also features presentations by Carmen Hudson, engagement manager, sourcing and social media, Recruiting Toolbox; Shannon Van Curen, trainer and recruiting specialist, AIRS; and Nicole Strecker, managing director, STA Worldwide; among others.
