Having the ability to source and uncover top talent is crucial to your success. Sometimes the tools we use come from non-traditional means.

I’ve recently come across an outstanding tool that is not at all meant for recruiters but you know what that means. As a breed, we are probably the more sticky and intrusive people around, but in the end we find people jobs and that’s what it’s all about.

Enter Zvents.com. Here is a little background. Based in San Mateo Ca., Zvents employs about 55 people and is known as an add network. Most recently ATT invested $24 million into the technology this past September. Their genetics are made up of over 250 media, advertising and mobile partners is efforts to aggregate and share events across the world. The opera, sports events, ballot, movies, reunions. You name it, they probably have it. So if your thinking that recruiting the ballot is not going to be of any use, Iam with you on that.


However, I am looking at this as a way to gather intelligence on the many symposiums and conferences taking place in your own back yard that you may not know about. They take place everyday and through my experience I’ve found this to be one of the most exciting and credible ways to source top talent without traveling.

Now like every method this will not be your end-all answer, but take a look through the results you receive (typically the top few) and you will be surprised how quickly you can develop you spring sourcing strategy. If you are unable to attend, send a friend. If they can’t attend, than get onto the conference website and scour that baby for names, speakers, attendees, sponsors and emails!

This is a great tool to add to the belt and a great way to build target list of professional fully vested in their career and continued education.

Good Luck and enjoy the networks!

Ask the recruiter question of the week:

 Ryan, (Question is paraphrased for posting)

I am looking to better understand how to source for mid level sales reps: 2-7 years in commercial, biotech, medical device and pharma using Boolean strings to target resumes on Google and profiles on LinkedIn.

Hi Pat,

Thanks for asking a great question! There are many different techniques to use here, but no one size fits all solution. I took a few moments to look at your company site and saw that you focus on sales recruiting. So before I get into some key techniques you can try using, let’s step outside of recruiting to better understand this response. (more…)
