What Makes a Great Talent Acquisition Conference? #SourceCon

Hey gang! I’m back from attending and speaking at my first ever SourceCon conference. Can I be real for a second? I never attended SourceCon in the past because I was intimidated. For real! Let me explain. I’m not a Sourcing Nerd! I’m not going to sit down on my laptop and go deep diving into the national archives to find names of whatever…

Could We Use Congestion Pricing Theory in Recruiting? #SourceCon

It’s 5:30 AM on Monday on the first day of whatever time zone this SourceCon might be located and I’m walking the halls of the event.

A Different Reason for Appreciating #SourceCon

Not many people have attended more SourceCons than I have. I had the honor of presenting at the very first one in 2007 and many since. And the further honor of SourceCon accepting my proposals to add two different tracks to the conference (SourceCon Labs in 2009, and Programmers in 2017). While each has since evolved and been renamed, they remain core parts of…

For ten years, I have religiously followed previous #SourceCon conferences as it has…
