Seating is limited to the first 40 registrants. See Workshop Agenda This 3-hour intensive workshop addresses the biggest challenge facing IT & engineering staffing firms today –finding and securing the right talent for their clients. During this hands-on workshop (requires a laptop), you will be exposed to new ideas and creative solutions with an in-depth review of the tools to use and the online resources available to source technical talent (including finding potential candidates that others won’t). Plus you’ll gain an understanding of how to attract the attention of passive candidates. Learn searching and sourcing methods, tips on LinkedIn, Github, StackOverflow, and how to combine various sources. Learn to build custom search engines and alerts using terminology variations and synonyms. Participants will review technical terminology such as, “front-end”, “back-end”, “full stack”, “open source”, Hadoop, and more. Specifics of different roles such as Developer, Data Scientist, QA Engineer, Build Engineer, DBA, Network Admin, etc., will be discussed. Understanding technical terminology is critical for navigating searches, and more importantly, the talent you are recruiting want to know you understand the value their skills bring to the position. To close the workshop, we will host a Sourcing Challenge! Participate in the 2019 TechServe Sourcing Challenge with the winner being recognized on stage at our opening keynote!
