As a sourcing strategy, "post and pray" isn't great. While PepsiCo still regularly find great candidates that way, we think fo...

Would love to see the difference between "photos uploaded" and photos shared... Android auto-upload is a wonderful thing for inflating activity numbers!

Thanks for the invite, +Andy Headworth. I'll be interested to see how others are using Google+ for recruiting/sourcing. Has anyone got any success stories yet?

I've only looked at this once, about six months ago, but never really had need to source in Poland - anyone else had success with GoldenLine?
 
Taking the Goldenline to Polish sourcing success.
Yes that is a pretty darn awful title I admit. So you've been asked to complete a sourcing project in Poland. Where do you start?  Well may I recommend having a look at Goldenline.pl. For those of you who haven't heard of Goldenline it is the number two pro...

Introduction
Hi, I'm Katharine. 

I can usually be found online masquerading as TheSourceress. 

In the real world, I reside in the UK and you are most likely to spot me in Swindon, Reading or London.

I founded Sourcing Hat Ltd in 2012 to help businesses engage with more interested and interesting people.

I am particularly interested in the social web and how it can be used to augment our relationships in the real world.

In September 2013 I introduced the inaugural Discover Sourcing event in London. Do get in touch if you'd like to learn more about future events.
Bragging rights
In March 2010 I won the title of GrandMaster Sourcer at SourceCon in San Diego (find out more at http://sourcecon.com)
