quotes sourcing

Sourcing is a relatively new, but increasingly important concept in the world of recruiting. Being able to find key talent that may be hidden away or overlooked is a skill that will make you invaluable to your company and/or clients.

If you’re new to sourcing, things can look a bit daunting. Fortunately, we have eight quotes from some of the experts, as well as links to their social media accounts and websites, to help you get started.

Social Recruiting Trainer @ Lightness

“You’ll need some guidance in order to start. I’ve found Twitter and Facebook groups to be a great resource because they give you access to sourcers and recruiters with plenty experience. Don’t just listen to what they say – ask questions! You’ll be suprised how many of them will be happy to share easy to follow tips with you.”

Katrina Collier

Social Recruitng Specialist @ The Searchologist

“Remember when you were a kid and you’d spend time exploring, looking down holes, turning over rocks and generally being your own Sherlock Holmes? That’s the curiosity you need to be a great sourcer. Always be asking questions, digging deeper and looking beyond the obvious. Go beyond the job description, find out about the work involved, the team dynamics, future potential, the drives and so on.”
