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

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.

“I need a bachelors degree fast” is how the Google search probably started. Afterward, it probably switched to online degree programs or more to the point, searches on fake online colleges, bogus PhD degrees or simply, “buying a bachelors degree online.” No matter the search, the end result is the same, people are buying phony degrees online and it is a growing trend. Why are people buying them? (Well, I suppose the answer is obvious. Isn’t it?)
In this episode of the Jim Stroud Show, Jim Stroud examines the booming phenomenon of buying fake academic credentials and the potential consequences of doing such.
