On April 12th and 13th, Dallas hosted the SourceCon conference at the Hilton Anatole. This was a 2-day, packed agenda filled with knowledge sharing and community. The event was held both virtually and in person and this was Odyssey’s 4th time attending the in-person event.
As the reigning SourceCon Grandmaster, Kristin Hughes decided to help on the Greet Squad this year! She truly enjoyed getting to assist and interact with all the first timers and welcome them to the SC Family. The event was filled with approximately 75% SC newbies as well as tenured industry veterans. Odyssey had 5 Recruiters and Sourcers attend the event in person, and we asked first-timers Taylor Zacarias and Peyton Taylor to discuss their takeaways from the event below.
And finally, from our Director of Recruiting, Kristin Hughes….
My favorite part of the event is always the LIVE Hackathon. Both Taylor and Peyton participated in the Hackathon and did great! (Peyton finished in the Top 20 on her first try!) Bottom line, this event allows you to connect with other talent industry professionals that share the same passion and problems that you do, so you can share ideas on how to grow and overcome challenges TOGETHER.
SourceCon is truly a global community, so I encourage you to check out your local chapter. Dallas has SourceCon DFW and many other metro cities have breakout meetups. Subscribe to the newsletter and start getting involved so that we can see you in the Fall! (Location TBD).
