JULY 2017

Wednesday 12th July 2017 1pm-2pm (BST)
Webinar with Martin Lee – The New LinkedIn
Free for members
While LinkedIn remains a top site for sourcing due to its accumulated “big data” and messaging functionality, Researchers, Sourcers, Recruiters and all who use the site for business networking are encountering challenges using LinkedIn – even more so since the recent updates to the LinkedIn’s desktop user interface (UI).

Depending on which type account they have, members now face serious search limitations, such as the inability to search by a postal code and radius. LinkedIn’s own search tip sheet and help documentation has mistakes (Martin will provide a corrected version). On Premium accounts such as Sales Navigator and LinkedIn Recruiter, the new search syntax is not intuitive, and with the new UI prospects who have non-standard company names or job titles simply won’t show up in search results.

Fortunately, we can overcome most of these limitations! In this webinar, Martin will cover all of LinkedIn’s limitations (new and old) that slow down searching and messaging candidates. He will explain how to overcome each restriction. Whatever type of LinkedIn account you have, the clever workarounds demonstrated in this webinar will boost your confidence and productivity.
NOTE: By joining the webinar, you commit to NOT publicly sharing any of the tips online.

Online Training Webinar with Martin Lee – Partner at Brain Gain Recruiting EMEA & APAC

Training Session Topic – Advanced Boolean & Google

 As researchers Google is probably our best tool but sifting through the vast amounts of information to get to what we really want to see can be time consuming and daunting.

In this training session Martin will go through how Google works and the operators and syntax available to us. He’ll also cover the main concepts, best practices, and techniques to craft expert searches for finding any sort of professional online, regardless of skillset, location, or industry.

In addition some free tools that will help you extract web search results into reports and Excel files.

Attendees are likely to have a good understanding of searching Google already. We plan to have a good amount of time for Q&A, live searches.

Free for email members

Guest/non members £60.00 per person

October Training Workshop 2018

“Researcher Skills & Techniques” WORKSHOP

Wednesday 10th October 2018 – FULLY BOOKED

1.30pm – 4.30pm  at Hays Executive 107 Cheapside London EC2V 6DN

Trainer: Louise Haines – Hays Executive Search

Briefing and Target Companies

As researchers we are often tasked with difficult briefs where the client can be direct or through an executive search firm. How can we guarantee a successful outcome from the start? How can you stay in control of a briefing and how can you engage with the client on a consultative and two-way basis?

It can often be challenging to bring the researcher voice to the briefing table and so this interactive session is geared for both novice and experienced researchers to help build confidence at this preparatory stage of the research process and will look to cover:

  • What the challenges and issues researchers face when conducting a brief and building target companies
  • How to be an adviser – the importance of preparation
  • How to be in control of a briefing – setting an agenda
  • How to think creatively about your target companies
  • The importance of networks and associations

As part of the training session each participant will look to bring a brief to discuss and review with the group.
