How to Source Candidates |
Finding new candidates can be challenging, let alone finding highly qualified candidates. Healthcare recruiting in particular is growing increasingly competitive, and with healthcare poised to be the largest industry measured by the number of jobs by 2020, the demand for talent is only expected to climb.
Which is why it’s no surprise that the healthcare recruiting and hiring community turned out for our Healthcare Sourcing Secrets Webinar hosted by one of the leading voices on the topic, Greg Hawkes (@GregHawkesHRSTB).
Greg provided healthcare sourcers with an abundance of resources to search for the best physician, nursing, and clinical candidates. Naturally, attendees showed their appreciation on Twitter. Below are the top shared #TalkHR tweets to help recap the event.

David Nicola actually hosted one of our previous webinars so you can say he knows a thing or two about the secrets of a top sourcer.
Most Notable Technique to Finding Top Talent
Greg went over some unexpected resources the creative sourcer can use. Deb discovered the wonder of Google Scholar and how to find published doctors which helps target highly qualified candidates.
I hadn’t thought about Google Scholar before–a great way to source talent that have published their work! Love it! #talkhr @GregHawkesMDACC
