Podcast – Meet the Speakers for #SourceCon NYC: Shally Steckerl

Over the next several weeks leading up to SourceCon NYC (which is only about eight weeks away!) we will be bringing you quick-hit interviews with the folks who will be presenting at the conference. This is a great way for you to get to “meet” the speakers and get a taste of what you can expect at the conference. We hope you’ll join us February 8-9 in New York City!

We kick off the SourceCon NYC podcast series, naturally, with our conference chairman, Shally Steckerl. Steckerl is a talent acquisition consultant, strategist, and speaker originally from Colombia, South America, now residing in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the Founder and Chief CyberSleuth of JobMachine, now Arbita ACES, the premier provider of sourcing consulting services and workforce development.

Starting his career in technical recruiting in 1996, Steckerl has experience consulting with and building sourcing organizations at many Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Google, Coca-Cola Enterprises, Cisco Systems, and Motorola. From early in his career he has developed techniques that dramatically increase recruitment productivity and allow companies to exploit the Internet. He has been teaching those techniques to staffing leaders since 1998.

    1. Thanks bro but I claim only partial credit for that. I also said “among other very influential people” – but it is no accident. I did intentionally set out with that goal back in the day, as for how much of it I can claim I’ll never know and I’m ok with that. I’m happy and very proud to just have been there. The list of others who contributed was too long for the time constraint of the podcast. In fact it could even fill a book!
