How many CVs does your Sourcer [really] need to make?

This makes me crazy: some recruiting leaders determine totally ad-hoc productivity targets for sourcers, often, without understanding what the business really needs and what can be a realistic requirement. Ridicule! It looks like sourcing is only a number game and these leaders love to hear those (usually super rare) stories when sourcers make 20 (or even more) qualified, interested and available

My Ever First #SourceCon Experience

It all starts with that super-long journey: taking those pretty uncomfortable extra miles on planes, in taxis, queuing here and there sometimes for hours, those thousands of foreign faces you randomly meet while getting lost in time zones, languages and emotions.
