It provides a clear system and guide that improves upon ad hoc searching which is subject to your knowledge and pure chance.

Start with any layer based on your LinkedIn sourcing experience (L1 for beginners, L3+ for experienced talent sourcers). Open LinkedIn Advanced People Search, adjust relationship parameters to search through the whole network (1st + 2nd + 3rd + everyone else connections) and set location to the desirable country of your search.
