Sneak Peak at the Week Ahead

439106722_341124ea6b_oHere is what is going on this week in the world:

  • Sign up for this week’s free webinar on Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. ET titled Workforce Planning: Connecting Business Strategy to Talent Strategy. This session will be led by Ed Newman of The Newman Group. Ed will provide insight into what makes an effective workforce planning strategy and how workforce planning fits into overall talent strategy.
  • This Friday is your last chance to register for SourceCon 2010 at the best discounted rate of just $795. If you haven’t yet checked out everything that will be taking place in San Diego from March 14-15 go to This is a unique & rare opportunity to learn the secrets from some of the worlds best sourcers, and one you won’t want to miss!
  • San Diego is also home to the 10th Annual ERE Expo 2010 Spring conference, taking place right after SourceCon from March 15-17. The agenda is brand new and better than ever, so if whether or not you have ever been to one of our previous Expos, don’t expect a repeat performance! Check out the agenda and speaker roster at And let me know if you would like to come to both SourceCon & ERE Expo, as there are discounts available.
  • During breaks at the Expo in San Diego, we’d like to show some of your videos. Make a 1-minute or shorter video of you telling your favorite recruiting story — it could be the most heartwarming advice or experience you’ve had, one that made you proud of the profession — or, it could be bad behavior by a candidate (or a manager!) during an interview, an employer brand gone awry, a botched recruitment ad campaign, or something else. Email Todd Raphael (he prefers PG-13 or cleaner) the Youtube embed code and we’ll pick some of the best to show at the upcoming conference.

If you have any questions about anything I just metioned, please leave them in the comments below. Have a great week!
