How To Source Like A Boss

  2. 2. 2 1. What’s my legal first name? 2. What year were you and I competing for the same talent and what division was I working for? (not on LinkedIn) 3. How many people have I hired on my own? 4. What’s the #SRSCTribe drink made industry famous by friend & mentor @StacyZapar? WHO AM I? @mduren sourced his way through this intro. @mduren @marieburns

  4. 4. THE MOVIE
  6. 6. 6 What Are Your Superpowers? What could we be missing? What are your kick-butt skills? What do you do better than anyone else? What do you think can up your game? What inputs will create best outputs? Why do you wake up every day to source another day?
  7. 7. My journey - hope it’s helpful. • Break down you. • Those patterns you experience again & again, they’re likely “your stuff” – figure it out to enhance work and life. • Check Relation to #SourcingLikeABoss? • To be the best, it makes sense to strive for more. • More importantly, arm yourself with human behaviors unlike your own. If you see the world through another lens, imagine that power. #FoodforThought What I Missed: Self Awareness
  8. 8. 8 Methodology to Win What do all of the most successful sourcing and recruiting teams having in common? They are unique. Stop copying and be yourself. BE AUTHENTIC Test multiple channels for all talent channels. A/B Test. Iterate monthly on the best ideas and build from there. TEST Track messaging, campaigns, outreach, inbound, track time spent and figure out what creates the best bang for your buck. MEASURE Get qualitative feedback from all parties (ask and survey): hiring managers, candidates, any online reviews – whatever isn’t working, drop it. GET FEEDBACK & PIVOT IF NEEDED
  9. 9. TODAY’S MATNRAS Get outside your comfort zone. Or, at least keep an open mind. Engage and interact! Consider the 30/60 Rule. 30% inbound and 60% sourcing at minimum due to demographic shift.
