Sourcing and Attracting Passive Candidates


Identifying high quality candidates can be challenging; stoking their interest in your organization can be even more challenging. Frank Sprague spends most of his day figuring out new ways to find and attract software engineers to Blackboard. 
In this session, you will learn:

  • Sourcing and pipelining strategies for hard to find, passive candidates.
  • A process of constant iteration to make these strategies successful. 
  • How to capture candidates’ attention when those candidates don’t need help finding a job.
