Scaling new heights with vertical networks

The landscape of social media networks has evolved significantly in the past few years and there is a new and growing segment of online sites that professionals are migrating toward.  These sites are both social and professional in nature and can be classified as vertical networks.  Some of these sites have been around for many years, while others have been newly created.  They are attractive to individuals who want to network with people that have similar professional experience and who are perhaps disenchanted with the big general networking sites.  Moving forward, it’s important for recruiters to know that these sites exist and to understand how to appropriately use them to locate specialized candidates.  This session will explore various vertical networks and best practices for sourcing candidates from these sites.
