Sourcing defines the actions you take through a variety of strategic methods in order to find qualified candidates. Sourcers are focused on the identification of top talent in order to fill the top of the candidate pipeline. Where then through proper assessment and engagement, recruiters can nurture those candidates towards a hire.
Alright, so you have a new job opportunity opening up within your company. You know what kind of talent you are are looking for and have an inclination on how you want to write it all out. You’ve done a bit of research and read a few articles; but you’re still a bit unsure on how to get started.
Unless you are a well known company where employment is sought out with you specifically (i.e Google, Amazon, Facebook…), there is a good chance that your job postings will be the first wave of exposure talent will receive about your establishment while searching for their next opportunity.
