When you are trying to find scarce skills in the market, you have to innovate. I am at the Gartner Business Intelligence Summit in Chicago (yes, I am home for a conference -- it is extremely nice). It has been a good event thus far. I was passing by the message board for conference attendees and I saw that one company posted a job opportunity. I was taken a little aback, but when one thinks about it, it certainly makes sense. It is a role where talent is scarce (Business Intelligence) and a conference where some of the best and brightest in the field are attending. What better place to find scarce talent? I am not recommending that everyone go to Gartner conferences as a recruiting exercise (there are other important reasons to go). However, it does make sense to think outside of the box for your candidate sourcing strategies.
