In addition, was responsible for building a passive talent pipeline by leveraging advanced research strategies; recruitment marketing strategies, as well as leveraging technology and social channels. A key strategy is to create expert communities that were designed to serve the dual purpose of evangelizing the Gates Foundation priority strategies as well as, creating opportunities to engage the executive talent that comprise the groups. In this way we can map our efforts to the Gates Foundation mission and serve our grantees and partners in a more impactful manner. From August 2011 to August 2012 (1 year 1 month) Greater Seattle AreaStrategic Sourcing Program Manager @ Global responsibilities for strategic sourcing programs; including social recruiting campaigns & events; talent pipelines & communities; sourcing & social recruiting training and the integration of social recruiting technologies.
Led an EMEA competitive response campaign that generated 3 immediate hires and a 250+ pipeline of target talent. Created “The BlackBerry Vine,” a community designed to be the voice of RIM’s culture; grew the community to 1000+ members in about 3 months. Was a “thought partner” with Global Sourcing Leader in redesigning the global sourcing ecosystem (talent intelligence, ERP, talent communities, SEO, social recruiting events & campaigns & CRM) to make a significant impact on strategic talent acquisition at Research In Motion (RIM). From February 2011 to June 2011 (5 months) Talent Sourcer @ This Talent Sourcer role was a hybrid role that contained aspects of project management, competitive talent intelligence, talent identification and branding & digital media. It involved identifying potential talent and leveraging social recruiting technology to build talent pipelines and talent communities to proactively meet Microsoft’s Entertainment & Devices Division (E&D) objectives. The focus was to identify the talent E&D would need over a three to five years year period.
My responsibility was to identify current and future talent (employees) for E&D. Specifically, I identified the target talent and segmented the audiences into professions that would be needed by our division to meet its goals and objectives. Two aspects of this work were unique; first, instead of centering on an immediate transaction, this work concentrated on engaging and nurturing relationships with the target audience. And second, we focused on the total target audience for a profession. For example, if there are 1.2M software engineers in North America, we measured our success by the % of that population that was identified.
Talent Community Building

We created a unique experience for the prospect | candidate that was interested in exploring a career with Microsoft, either currently or in the future.
