The sourcecon.qa site – as the domain extension suggests — is a question-and-answer website for exchanging ideas and asking questions. It’s part of the ERE Media family. Take a look and you’ll see examples of topics: LinkedIn, video interviewing, Indeed.com, webscraping, the sourcing process, military hiring, Google+, and more.
This is something that’s been done in other industries, like music and computer/software programming. It is, as Sourcecon’s Jeremy Roberts says, referring to the programming q-and-a site, “like StackOverflow for sourcers and recruiters.” Or, a bit like Quora, a crowdsourcing q-and-a website where people discuss everything from the hiring process to the best Led Zeppelin song.
Roberts, my colleague sees the site as “a place for all of us to join together to help solve sourcing problems and build a knowledge base of sourcing-related information.” Here’s a nice little rundown of our new site.
