Our Story

James Phanyasaeng and Vyvy Truong were colleagues at CORE Resources, an Agile Technology partner, located in Downtown Toronto when they stumbled upon a recruitment-focused hackathon – Sourcing Madness 2019 hosted by Sourcecon. The recruitment delivery team at CORE took it as a challenge to test their sourcing capabilities and compete on a worldwide scale.

As the only Canadian-based team who passed the qualifications, they were knocked out of the competition after 3 rounds going head-to-head with experienced teams based in the EU.

Shortly thereafter, they were interviewed by Mark Lundgren, International Speaker and Host of Sourcing Challenge Show. During the interview, he asked the team the question

“What’s the talent community like in Toronto as a prominently growing techhub?”

Outside of their own team and a couple connections from previous employers, there was a lack of community especially within Talent Acquisition in the Greater Toronto Area. In comparison to the European/American market, Ontario held occasional recruitment-focused events through larger Human Resources conferences, though they didn’t get into the nitty gritty work of talent acquisition as a whole.
