Earlier this month, Shally released his new book, The Talent Sourcing & Recruiting Handbook on Amazon....and it's even in electronic format for you eReader junkies. For those of you who don’t know Shally, he’s probably the most visible, vocal and creative thinker when it comes to sourcing talent online. In addition to providing comprehensive online and in-person training through his company, The Sourcing Institute, Shally also speaks at over 50 events annually and is a master at figuring out how to reach into the nooks and crannies of the Internet to perform deep sourcing efforts and extract talent.
In addition to being smart, he’s a pretty interesting and unique human being, and he’s larger than life on stage. An excited and rapid method of delivery, coupled with his brutal honesty, make his presentations a welcome diversion from the boring and bulleted PowerPoint drudgeries that we’re all accustomed to. During his sessions, you’ll find yourself feverishly taking notes about the amazing and interesting methods he has uncovered that can help recruiters and sourcers mine the free and paid resume sources, search engines, and internal employee lists. And now, we get to own his brain. Pretty cool.
Having known Shally professionally for many years, I thought it would be fun to catch up with him and ask him a few questions about his book.
