As a recruiter you always wish for talented candidates to come across your job posting. But, in this candidate driven market where most of the talented candidates already have a job there is a huge possibility that the right talent might be interested working in your organization but is just unaware about the vacancy. This is why traditional candidate sourcing from job boards don’t always work.
Most recruiters have backup plans when it comes to sourcing candidates. But, even after keeping multiple contingency plans for sourcing candidates, the results are not always encouraging because traditional candidate sourcing methods are getting obsolete. There is a need for a creative and proactive approach to create a breakthrough sourcing idea. With more attention to passive sourcing coupled with a change in recruitment strategy from requisition style sourcing to community building, you can select the best candidates for the vacant position.
