What is SourceCon? SourceCon was created by sourcers and recruiters to provide knowledge sharing and insights about sourcing best practices. Born out of the necessity to recognize sourcing and research as essential components of the recruitment process, the SourceCon website was launched after the first SourceCon conference in 2007. SourceCon is a place for sharing tools, ideas, and ways for sourcers to improve their skills and knowledge. The goal of SourceCon is simply to inform, encourage, and empower.
