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

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 For those of you who haven't heard of Goldenline it is the number two pro...

Katharine Robinson originally shared:
In September 2013 the UK Sourcers community presents Discover Sourcing – bringing together some of the world’s best sourcing minds for a large, dedicated sourcing event in the United Kingdom.

Discover Sourcing will consist of a workshop afternoon for active Sourcers, Researchers and Recruiters that want to push their sourcing skills and discover more. The following conference day is for everyone with an interest in recruitment and sourcing. It will ensure that those new to sourcing can discover what it's all about and more experienced practitioners can delve deeper into their craft.

With more than 10 proposed sessions to choose from, there will be something for attendees at all levels from Heads of Recruitment and seasoned Sourcers to the inexperienced Researcher.

Speakers so far include +Karen Blakeman, +Alastair Cartwright, +Andrew Grill, +Martin Lee, +Oscar Mager, +Shane McCusker, Ralph Meyer, +Andrew Mountney, Nicola Prescott, +Laura Stoker and +Katharine Robinson.

More speakers, from around the world, will be announced as their availability is confirmed. To keep up to date with new speaker information visit or follow @UKSourcers on Twitter.

Save up to £100 with an Early Bird ticket if you register before 30th June.

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?

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.
