InternetJune 14, 2013Update from Irina Shamaeva on the People Sourcing Certification ProgramDear Fellow Recruiters and Sourcers:For those of you who have been interested in the People Sourcing Certification Program, but havent takenthe class yet, here is an update.The current class is in session. We got lots of positive feedback and praise from the previous classes*. Ourattendance keeps growing and has included those who come for the second round and those who havebeen referred by happy past attendees.In this round we have people from ten countries, including several large teams of corporate and of agencyrecruiters; these are the largest teams attending ever.For this round we made big improvements to the Program, introducing providing much more granularmodules and a better structure, as well as covering more content. (Getting everything up-to-date, alongwith restructuring, wasnt easy, especially since LinkedIn and Google+ decided to redesign themselvesjust before the Program! That was lots of work preparing the most important and all up-to-date peoplesourcing content).The "classroom" implementation of the program for the attendees is also an improvement; we hope youlljoin us next time to experience it firsthand.The updated People Sourcing Certification Program materials now include 9 (nine!) video-recorded modules with 9 slide sets for each level: the Level One ("the" level for most, teachingplenty of skills to use on a daily basis) and for the Level Two (the level for advanced sourcers), plusseveral "tip sheets" for each level.We will hold the next round in early October. In the meantime the packaged Program materials have justbeen updated on the site.You can start raising your sourcing skills and expanding your toolbox by obtaining the ProgramMaterials now and upgrade to the full program in October if you decide to do so. The materials come withtwo months of support from your Sourcing Teachers.If your plan is to get certified, the earlier you get hold of the materials, the higher value you will getfrom the training.As always, with any questions, please email our Customer Support Manager George Glikmanat email@example.com
