Post Sourcecon Fall 2015!! Part 1
So Sourcecon Fall 2015 has come and gone and it was off the hook. Over 600 people attended and from all the social chatter it was considered to be the best yet. Some of the things said are below:
“#Sourcecon was simply amazing. Top knotch people. Learned more than I ever thought I could possibly learn and got to hang out with people I truly enjoy spending time with. Met people that I have been dying to meet for a long time. Thanks Jeremy Roberts for the best conference I have ever attended!

So naturally it is time for my post Sourcecon posts. Over the next few weeks I will make several post covering many of the topics covered at Sourcecon.
For this week a synapsis of the “State of Sourcing” opening presentation. One overriding thing was that their continues ot be a blur between sourcers and recruiters. Staffing teams as a whole grew from this time last year with over 64%^ of respondents stating they have grown. 49% of companies employ sourcers, and 69% of managers plan on increasing the number of sourcers they have. Corporate sourcers make more than RPO and agency. Tech recruiters make more than non tech. 65% of contract sourcers make between 41-60 hour, while Most recruiters make between 31-70 an hour. Most corporate recruiters carry about 11-20 reqs. That number goes up within larger companies. 68% of recruiters and sourcers use a paid Linkedin account daily. Third party recruiters and sourcers use the enterprise Linkedin 59% daily. Linkedin is the most used for sourcing followed by Facebook.
