Advanced Sourcing Techniques for Passive Talent

Discover where to find talent that are not seeking to be found.

Course Details

Passive candidates who post online, more often than not, do not explicitly state their job title, skills or employer anywhere, making them difficult to find them while using traditional sourcing methods. Enter the realm of Implicit and Behavioural search with José Kadlec, where you’ll learn how to source candidates using OSINT (Open Source Intelligence) methods like a true Private Eye.
