It’s 2016 and we’re all wondering what this year has in store for us. On that particular note it’s only right that we take a moment to think about what the Recruiting Trends look like for this year. Having highlighted that @Souricngadda every Wednesday we hold discussions where our members get the opportunity to interact with like – minded individuals and add to their knowledge.
These discussions give us a chance to see the other side of things that we don’t usually get to see or learn on a daily basis. Hence the topic for discussion was on “Recruiting Trends that Matter in 2016” as suggested by Sarang. And here’s what we discovered…
Well we received some interesting perspectives through this discussion and now it’s time to be patient and see how much of it comes true. In the meantime to get real time updates to our upcoming events follow us @Sourcingadda. And while you’re waiting to see if these aspects turn out to be true you might want to be a part of #TASCON16 and add to your knowledge as well.

The Talent Acquisition Industry is constantly evolving with professionals implementing new and improved techniques for Talent Sourcing. It’s common knowledge that finding perfect Candidates is like finding a needle in a haystack it’s almost impossible.
As Talent Acquisitionists most of us usually make hires based primarily on Employee Referrals upon the request of Employers. More and more Company’s now rely on Employee References to fill positions fast. But how do you boost the quality of hires via Employee References?
Hence, @SourcingAdda we proactively decided to follow through with the topic upon the request of Mukta a member of the West group of the weekly Hike Group Chat discussions. Thus the discussion was on the topic, “In what ways can we boost the quality hires from employee references?” and here’s what we uncovered…
The conversation above has definitely shed some light on the topic of discussion and if we implement them in our hiring strategy appropriately will certainly assist the Recruiting process thus landing us with quality hires through Employee References.
In the meantime if you’d like to be a part of such discussion in future then be sure to follow @SourcingAdda for real time updates to our upcoming activities and events and join our Hike Groups. To add to your knowledge make sure you attend the most exciting event of the year #TASCON16 to experience the extraordinary and make moments that are worthwhile as you enjoy and learn more about the Talent Acquisition Industry that we’re all passionate about.

There has been a longstanding debate about whether a Recruiter’s LinkedIn profile should be personal or in sync with the Company’s vision/ policies they work for. A discussion encourages two perspectives leaving you with mixed responses.
In such a scenario reaching a conclusion is difficult hence @SourcingAdda we decided to get to similar ground based on the suggestion of the Hike Group Chat member Harsh thus the Wednesdays discussion topic was on, “Should LinkedIn profiles be personal one or should it be in sync with the company’s vision/policies where a Recruiter works?” here’s what was discussed…….
Based on the conversation above we can conclude that while having a LinkedIn profile should be personal you can also promote the Company within your profile details by mentioning the Company name that you are currently working at. In this way you can also brand the company simultaneously besides there are other Social Media channels to utilise for personal branding, don’t you agree?
So evidently a mix of both is essential, for similar reasons being either personal or employer branding making your LinkedIn profile two sides of the same coin. Amazing isn’t it? If you like this particular post then follow @SourcingAdda for real time updates to our upcoming activities and be a part of them as well while you enjoy as you add to your knowledge.
