The purpose of sourcing is to generate a large list of qualified potential candidates. From this list, Recruiting will solicit interest, and we hope to increase the number of qualified candidates in our pipeline.
The Recruiter/Recruiting Manager/Hiring Leader can request sourcing support for a particular role. If so, they will reach out to the Sourcing Manager and the Sourcer aligned to the team/location of the vacancy to request sourcing. Please refer to the Recruiting Alingmnent page for further details.
As a common practice, the Recruiter will schedule an intake call. Sourcer should come prepared for the intake session with insights and required questions to serve as a talent advisor. For example:
To stay up to date, Sourcer should have regular check-ins with the Recruiter and Hiring Manger.
Sourcer uses multiple tools to source candidates with LinkedIn being the most used and efficient. Ensure you have a LinkedIn Recruiter account and your ContactOut (email finder plugin) is installed.
For additional details/information refer to our Sourcing Handbook page.
Sourcers are responsible for reaching out to candidates. They can use our reach out templates or create their own messaging for reaching out to candidates.

We recommend to Sourcers to use the Follow button to get timely updates on candidate's status. As per the interview process, schedule the candidates for next steps (leave a note in Greenhouse to recruiter and CES team member with an update). For Example:-
