Today’s labour market is a tough and nasty place especially for staffing professionals. Due to the low unemployment rates and demographical curve companies and recruiters have to face the reality of the passive talent market. This state of the market puts a burden on the head of every talent sourcer, recruiter or HR professional who needs to use the latest outbound recruitment techniques on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google, Github, Dribbble, job boards databases or elsewhere in the online matrix.

Recruitment Engineering is a complex online training in talent sourcing. José’s main mantra is “Get practical!” and that is the main feature of this digital training. All the techniques are covered hands-on with the real-world examples in a live environment.
