According to HR and recruitment experts, the world of Internet job sourcing is seeing a dramatic change from posting millions of resumes of active job seekers to capturing the attention of decidedly more elusive "passive" job seekers -– prospects who are gainfully employed and not actively seeking employment. The reason? Superior talent.

In today’s highly competitive market, a talented workforce has become a strategic asset and the so-called "passive candidate," recruiters agree, tends to be significantly more capable than the average active job seeker. As a result, the passive candidate has become more highly prized than ever. Highly prized, but equally more difficult to find and land. To assist recruiters in identifying passive candidates, Kennedy Information is offering a two-part series of Audio Conferences entitled "The Extraordinary Candidate Experience." The series features Peter Weddle, Founder and CEO of Weddle’s, a leading HR and recruiting consulting, training and publishing company.

Drawing on more than nine years of research on Best Practices in online sourcing and recruiting, the seminar series consists of two sessions – September 9th and September 29th -- designed to provide corporate recruiters and HR managers responsible for recruiting efforts with a comprehensive and practical foundation in the strategies and techniques that will help them attract and successfully recruit passive candidates.

Further information about the audio conference series is available by calling Kennedy Information at 1-800-531-0007 or by visiting the company Web site at http://www.kennedyinfo.com/audio/WeddleSeries/track.php?src=WeddlePressRelease
