This ia a "hack day" style event for recruiters, sourcers and resourcers.
Attend if you are interested in meeting fellow professionals, learning new Internet research skills and helping others to do the same.
You should bring a laptop with you - you will need it!
Attendees should be ready to share and be open with other participants, but also respect the sensitivity of what they might share with you.
What we cover is up to you. We can help each other brush up on our Boolean skills or make the most of searching social networks - the sky is the limit.
This event is free to attend due to the generosity of PepsiCo. They have agreed to host our next meetup at their office in Theale, give us access to wi-fi and provide refreshments.
