6 SXSW Panels Sourcers Should Support

I attended my first SXSW Interactive 2 years ago in support of a startup that has since disappeared from the limelight. My partners and I roamed the streets of Austin with an intern dressed like a jackalope, we threw a launch party, and we pitched our idea to every venture capitalist who would listen to us. Since my day job was sourcing, I also made sure to catch a few sessions about talent acquisition and recruiting.

The end of summer means it’s time to help select the panels for 2014. The SXSW PanelPicker is open for voting and I have listed a few of my favorites.

Long live the jackalope!
