Sourcing is not just about finding profiles online

Sourcing is technically about identifying candidates online using different sources – sure. But I like to think it’s more than that. It’s a certain approach to the recruitment process.

The sourcers I know and admire are curious, constantly learning and not afraid to experiment. It’s that attitude that allows them to excel at recruiting for even the most challenging roles. They build strong relationships with candidates too.

When I first started working in sourcing, the training I received was rather basic. I was fortunate enough to find some amazing blogs written by experienced and talented sourcers and learned to use social media by following their advice as well as experimenting on my own. I enjoy sharing this experience because, frankly, you don’t need to learn from your mistakes. I made enough for you to just learn from mine 😉

I created a website dedicated to promoting independent HR bloggers in Poland. Thanks to the website gathering all of those – and additionally the best company blogs about HR – recruiters can come there for their daily dose of HR news and inspiration.
