One of the hottest debates amongst Recruiters in both corporate and agency is what email communication is the best to send to a candidate to get a positive response.

The Gig Economy and Sourcers

Kelly Dingee Kelly Dingee, Sourcing

So much of what we read these days about the gig economy is Uber-specific. Truly Uber specific. There’s this perception that Gig is synonymous with the Millennial generation.  That it accommodates their need for flexibility and freedom.

I have a confession to make.  I’m a digital hoarder.  It’s bad—really bad.  Multiple repositories hold my stash, photos to documents spreadsheets filled with candidates sourced over the years.

What does your team need to source? How dollar conscious do you need to be about your budget?  I’m stingy.  Honestly, I’m way stingier with my sourcing budget than I am with my own money.  But I will always spend on automation—especially if the tools help me look smart and save time (which saves money!).  Show me what you got. …
