The recruiting industry is always changing at a rapid pace and it’s important that you stay up to date on the latest trends. Sourcing 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. We’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.
