The largest recruiting and HR unconference will take place in the University of Westminster on Friday, September 6th. According to founder Bill Boorman (@BillBoorman2), the event has evolved to include not only the best bits of previous events but also the introduction of plenty of new ideas and concepts to spice things up. One of those new concepts is the event preceding #truLondon this year; #TalentNetLive. This unique part conference, part unconference (its first time being held in the UK), will be hosted by Craig Fisher (@Fishdogs) on Thursday, September 5th and promises to be an unmissable recruitment and HR gathering.

London EyeWe’re delighted to be joining the #truCarnival with two one hour workshops for all attendees during two different streams in the Sourcing Lab. We’ll be running a White Belt in Internet Recruitment for those of you who just don’t have a clue about how to use the internet where, in one hour, we will go through the basics of candidate search, how to get the most out of your job boards, LinkedIn etc. and also how to get improved return in your engagement rates, emails etc. You’ll learn:

  • how to find more more candidates
  • how to find contact details for anyone in the world
  • how to get more people to respond to your messages

In our second second session we’ll show you social sourcing and will prove to all you LinkedIn addicts, just how easy it is to find candidates elsewhere like on Twitter, Google+ and Facebook. We’ll also be demonstrating how to build Big BenBoolean strings to find candidates on any website and how to use sites like Followerwonk to mine Twitter, Facebook Open Graph search (to find language and junior admin candidates in particular) and Google+ (the second biggest social network in the world).

Also joining us at #truLondon this year will be a host of the recruitment industry’s most prominent movers and shakers including Gerry Crispen, Kevin Green, Stacy Donovan Zapar, Gordon Lokenberg, Steve Ward and Bill Fischer to name but a few.

Buy your tickets for both events here and we can’t wait to see you all there!
