Jim Stroud: Sourcing passive candidates
Great mini-tutorial going on right now by Jim Stroud (on part 3 of 5 as of this post).
As all good recruiters know, most your high quality candidates are "passive"--meaning they're not actively looking for a job but could potentially be tempted by your wiley charms. How you go about finding these folks is part art, part science, and part proprietary super secret. Jim helps us out by showing how we can use news searches (so far MSN) to locate these diamonds in the rough.
