What is talent sourcing?

Talent sourcing is a vital component of an integrated recruiting strategy to build a robust talent pipeline for current open roles and future positions. We proactively conduct online candidate research to identify candidates within your parameters that currently work in similar positions, either for your competitors or within your industry that have the prerequisite career experience and skills required to fill an open position. Talent sourcing is performed as an on-demand hourly service, either as a name generation or candidate development project. 

Name Generation: During a name generation project, in-depth online research is performed to deliver a customized passive candidate list (research report) containing; each candidate’s name, current employer, job title and contact information of potential candidates that currently work in similar positions, either for your competitors or within your industry. Name generation is an invaluable resource to uncover purple squirrels, that you can use now for your current open positions and again as a short list to kick start a future candidate search.

Candidate Development: In addition to building a list of potential candidates, the recruitment research process is taken one step further…

  • Each candidate is called to discuss your open position and are pre-qualified to determine their interest in your career opportunity.

  • To conclude the candidate development project, you will receive an enhanced research report containing; each candidate’s name, current employer, job title, contact information and their pre-screen responses.

Our Process:

  • To kick off your on-demand talent sourcing project, due diligence is conducted with your stakeholders to identify the skills and subtle attributes you're seeking, determine pre-qualification criteria and ensure we fully understand your open requirement.

  • The due diligence assessment also helps to make certain there's a clear understanding of how the candidate you want to hire will contribute to your company, the business problems they’ll solve, their career growth path as well as their professional competencies, personal characteristics and leadership qualities you require.

  • At this point, online research is conducted to build a customized talent pipeline of passive candidates who are currently working in similar positions within your industry that match your open requirement.

Benefits of on-demand talent sourcing:

  • Cost effective, flexible resource with no long-term commitments

  • Customized approach to identify and target hard to find passive candidates

  • Research report: This is a value-added resource you will utilize now for your current open position and again as a talent pipeline to jump-start a candidate search for a similar position in the future.
