The New Age of Sourcing


In this eBook, we’ve collected 30 of the best sourcing tips for recruiters, split into two categories:

1. “15 Ways to Optimize Your Sourcing Efforts” deals with the tactics and techniques recruiters can adopt to find qualified candidates with ease.

2. “15 Tech Tools and Tips for Sourcers” outlines some of the technologies recruiters can add to their arsenals in order to enhance their sourcing efforts.

Sourcing is critical, but it doesn’t have to be a timesuck. Use the following tips and tech to become a master sourcer without sacrificing a full day and a half every week.

Technology should be a key part of any smart sourcing strategy — more on that in the next section — but artificial intelligence (AI) is not yet sufficiently advanced to run the whole operation on its own. For the foreseeable future, recruiters will need to work alongside technology to get the job done.

There are many efficiency gains to be made in the realm of manual sourcing.

Sneak peek

When recruiters have to spend an inordinate amount of time sourcing, their other duties don’t receive the necessary attention — if any at all. This leads to a number of negative repercussions, including:

• Failing to maintain positive, responsive client relationships, leading to lost business for the agency

• Failing to maintain positive, responsive relationships with hiring managers, leading to less trust and collaboration within the organization

• Incomplete or improper vetting processes, leading to bad-fit candidates being submitted for jobs or hired (each bad hire can cost a company roughly 30 percent 4 of the hire’s salary — easily a fivefigure price tag)

• Negative candidate experiences, which can drive away top talent and damage the organization’s consumer and employer brands
