Today we’re happy to share a guest post written by Jonathan Kidder from WizardSourcer. A great collection of must-visit conferences for recruiting and sourcing fans.
I always encourage other Talent Sourcers to participate in webinars, training courses, and to attend at least one conference a year. The recruiting industry is always changing at a rapid pace and it’s important that you stay up to date on the latest trends. Our industry revolves around communication and the ability to build networking-relationships with others. So, that’s why it’s important to attend sourcing conferences when you have the chance. I’ve created a list of my top ten conferences to attend in North America and in Europe. Note – some of these conferences may have already taken place but it’s still good to research and plan for 2019.
SourceCon ERE – Atlanta & Budapest 2018
SourceCon was created by sourcers and recruiters to provide knowledge-sharing and insights about sourcing best practices. It can’t be beaten for learning about the latest tools, tech, and tricks of the trade.

Talent 42 – Washington 2018
Talent42 is a one-of-a-kind conference, 100% focused on tech recruiting.

And they obviously hit the mark.
