The Boston Area Talent Sourcing Association (BATSA) is a volunteer-led organization whose mission is to promote Sourcing as a respected function and career path within recruiting, competitive intelligence and other industries, teach tricks of the trade to aspiring professionals, and encourage interaction among Sourcing practitioners and leaders to foster dissemination of best practices in the greater Boston area (inclusive of Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island*).
Our scope is educating sourcers and recruiters on all things sourcing (mostly matching the Wikipedia definition), including name-generation research through online, phone and offline methods, market and competitive intelligence, recruitment marketing (including employment branding and growth hacking) and anything else that helps find and engage new talent leads who wouldn't naturally apply for an organization's jobs on their own.
How we do this is primarily through subject matter expert and peer-to-peer interaction, including physical events, webinars and tool-sharing (the last primarily through our social media channels).
Free on purpose: Also important to BATSA is that an aspiring sourcer's financial situation should not be an impediment to learning, since many are individual contributors and/or lack the stability of a competitive full-time salary. As such, all our events are free to attendees, thanks to our sponsors.
*If you want to make the drive up from CT or further away for one of our events, you'll still be welcome, and/or attend our webinars in between the live events! Get on our distribution list if you aren't already (and tell your sourcing/recruiting colleagues to do likewise!).
