If you want to experience success in recruiting passive candidates, I HIGHLY suggest that you adopt the habits discussed in this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.”
Why this special episode? When Karen Azulai mentioned a sourcing workshop she was giving in Israel, he was excited for her but could not participate. (Insert sad face here.) So, in support of her effort, he produced this video that will also be shared with her workshop.

This webinar has been pre-approved for 1 hour of general recertification credit by the HR Certification Institute.
Everyone is talking about artificial intelligence and the age of smart robots and their wide-ranging implications on society in general.
However, what does the future hold for sourcers in human resources and professionals in talent acquisition, especially in a world where algorithms and smart technology rule? Will the middle man’s role just survive, or will it excel and thrive?
Part sharing of scientific fact and part crystal-ball-gazing, Jim Stroud will share a cautionary and highly interesting view of things to come in HR as we move into and through artificial intelligence.
In this webinar, you’ll learn:
What the future technology landscape is evolving into for HR and for sourcers
How to ensure sourcers survive automation in a data-dominated landscape
How to adapt to the future behavior of passive and active candidates

Entrepreneur, Black Enterprise and The HR Examiner have all cited Jim for his digital influence.
While watching “Judge Judy,” Jim Stroud gets the idea of how to source passive candidates from courtrooms around the world. In a nutshell, lawyers often depend on expert witnesses to validate and prove their arguments. In this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show,” Jim goes into detail on how to find such experts for the jobs recruiters are trying to fill now. | Links related to this episode can be found here.
“Facebook Notes” is a blogging platform on Facebook that has garnered some but, not an overwhelming bit of attention. (I mean, did you know that Facebook had blogging platform? Exactly!) Well, according to a certain article, Facebook is determined to shine some light on Facebook Notes via a few upgrades. Here is a quote:
“With Medium attracting an increasing number of brands and high-profile users eager to communicate their messages, thoughts and opinions, it seems that Facebook, too, wants a piece of the pie, and is hoping that with a more attractive interface for Notes, brands as well as regular users will get blogging inside Facebook again, giving the site’s global community another reason to stay on the site for longer and engage ever more deeply with its offerings, several of which incorporate revenue-generating ads.”
Since all Facebook users have access to Facebook Notes, I looked mine up and was pleasantly surprised that I had posted some content on it last year. Hmm.. As I think about it now, methinks I meant to write about Facebook notes last year and never got around to it.
Of course, every blog post represents a lead of some sort, either: a) the person who wrote the post or, b) people who are commenting on the post. Since Facebook Notes is not as popular as other platforms on the web, chances are one could connect with passive candidates under the radar. Just a thought…
So, what do you think of this strategy? Leave a comment below. 🙂
Robots taking over jobs is a common theme these days yet, a contrarian view is explored in this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.” Imagine you are a software developer who is constantly hounded by recruiters; almost to the point of distraction. So, what do you do? You do what Will Sims has done and build a robot to handle all calls from recruiters. Check out this very clever experiment! \
