Flashback 6 years ago… what were you doing as a recruiter? I am still having trouble believing 6 years ago was actually just 2009. Every so often I like to go back into the sourcing tip vault and look at some of archives to see what I was doing a few years ago. The other day I came across 6 sourcing tip videos from 2009, some have been posted and others not. I decided to place them up here because most if not all are still relevant.
These are 6 short tutorials from 2009 that you may still find to be helpful. Enjoy and share along. Don’t kill the messenger if they are too basic or no longer relevant to all!
