How to Source Candidates from Slack


There probably isn't a tech startup anywhere that does not use Slack as its internal communication platform. It's also an amazing place to create intra-company communities, a place where professionals of all disciplines get together and share knowledge. Might these also be places where you can source candidates?


You will learn:


- What is Slack and how do you join?

- Recruiter behaviours to avoid

- How to create relationships in Slack communities

- When to post jobs - if at all?

- How to engage on Slack

- Scraping Slack from the outside

- Resources and tools


All this and more with w/ Alla Pavlova, Recruiter (Riot Games), Nicolas Darcis, Founder (Ocetelo) & Mark Deubel, Senior Technical Recruiter (Gitlab)
