Event description


We Are Coming Back To Washington DC with a Cause & Sourcing Legend Shally Steckerl

For the fourth year in a row, RecruitingDaily is coming back to DC. We're bringing together top TA and Recruiting Leaders for a one-day Un-Conference and Educational Event.

BUT... Things are different this time.

The format has changed.

We've added a training workshop, we've removed the clutter, and we've created the ability for real recruiters to experience valuable tech in a non-threatening, non-sales environment.


We've partnered with THE SOURCING INSTITUTE FOUNDATION, a 501(c)(3) non-profit, that provides educational grants to veterans, active military spouses, and disabled individuals who would benefit from employment in the sourcing and recruiting industry.

This means that a percentage of the proceeds for this event will be donated to The Sourcing Institute Foundation, helping to build our industry.


You arrive at 8 am.

You eat some great breakfast.

You network with other smart recruiters and sourcers.

8:45 am the bell rings and class is in session.


HRTX is a curriculum-based educational event for all level recruiters and sourcers.

It's the real deal.

You will work through a full day of exercises, work on live reqs, ask questions, and get 1-to-1 time with the industry's top resources to help you navigate, build, and integrate the techniques that you need to ensure you are at the top of your recruiting / sourcing game.

We've got an expert-level team coming to DC



Shally will lead the HRTX training. From tactical, everyday techniques to advanced "outside the box" and over-the-rainbow strategies, Shally will take you on a ride regardless of your level.

In most circles, Shally is referred to as the "Father of Sourcing," responsible for creating the industry we all love today.

Here's what he'll be covering:

The New Rules of Facebook: Finding Candidates

During this session, industry pioneer, Shally Steckerl will show how to use the very newest search techniques with Facebook’s most recent changes to commands and Graph Search. Shally will demonstrate how simple reverse engineering can reveal names based on a person’s workplace, education, geography regardless of not being a Facebook connection.

Find candidates based on:

  • School/education

  • Work history

  • Geographic location

  • Coworkers

  • Job titles

  • What Facebook pages and groups are liked

Mastering Natural Language. NLP. Search for the Modern Recruiter

Take a deep dive with one of the most innovative minds in the industry and explore how to stay ahead of the sourcing curve.

Imagine using universal search techniques that work in any database. Uncover talent hidden in plain sight through searching for language patterns, finding people in associations and conferences, and other web-based content not easily accessible through mainstream search engines.

You’ll never be a world class CyberSleuth, unless you learn the easy magic of Natural Language Search. Forget complex Boolean logic and advanced syntax, these search hacks work in any database, and will have you finding people you have right under your nose and never even knew existed in your own ATS, on resume databases, and even people you never knew you were missing on LinkedIn.


  • Understand natural language search

  • Hacks for the modern sourcer

  • Latest sourcing tech

Uncovering the DEEP Web for Talent & People Lookups

Learn to use competitive intelligence search techniques to find the candidates that others won’t.

Find your target prospects using image and video search, blog post comments not visible through search engines and correlating user names and aliases on public websites. Find thought leaders’ peers, colleagues and influencers not in the limelight through unusual social search techniques on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, and others.

Apply creative search strings that uncover crucial sourcing data lying deep in the Web and that standard methods never find, including associations, conferences, user groups, discussion lists/listservs, mailing list archives and more. Learn how to mine documents that can lead you to find passive talent not otherwise searchable.

People Lookups:

Learn to utilize a variety of different approaches to identifying contact details for prospects including online white pages for telephone numbers, email lookups and verification, and social network memberships.

Sourcing. Messaging. Qualifying. What are the industry-agnostic best practices during each stage? And why? Who says?

The Take-Aways:

How to be More Productive When Sourcing

Where is the 9th hour of your sourcing day? You know that "extra hour needed to get more sourcing done?

Sourcing is full of many layers that include deep web mining, name generation, finding contact info, candidate engagement and so much more.

Then wham! Before you know it, you have gone down the rabbit hole.

You start asking yourself: Where did the time go? Did I source enough on that requisition? Did I yield results?

One challenge that many sourcers face is how to walk away from each work day feeling like they were productive and were able to manage their sourcing strategies effectively. Learn how to become more productive while sourcing, yield results and feel like you found that "9th hour in the day!

Here's what you'll walk away with:

  • A toolkit that can be applied in any size organization to increase sourcing productivity

  • Tactical and simple techniques to manage your sourcing time effectively

Diving into Amazon, Facebook, and Instagram

LinkedIn might be the first place recruiters go, but if you're struggling to fill a role, it's worth trying to source candidates on Amazon, Facebook, and Instagram.

In his session, Brian Fink explores how to find, engage, and recruit candidates via Amazon, Facebook, Instagram, and more - quickly and effectively.

Takeaways from this session include:

  • Going beyond Natural Language queries on Facebook and taking shortcuts

  • Deep diving into Instagram's search and DM features

  • Using Amazon shopping lists, ratings, and reviews to find relevant candidates

  • Disrupting the spam filters on Instagram and Facebook

  • Penetrating other overlooked social sharing applications

Are you serious?

Yes. We are.

We are bringing the pain to DC and yes... it's going to hurt (your brain).

HRTX is NOT just about education.

We've invited subject matter experts from top sourcing and recruiting tools to share their perspective.

You will get to see, demo, and ask questions directly to the brainpower behind:
