Editor’s note: For the rest of the holiday season, we’ll be sharing the top SourceCon posts of 2015. Here’s a post from Jim Stroud.

Here are a few ideas for you to consider to make sure you’re a highly effective sourcer.

  1. Be curious / when I started I had no idea what I was doing and had no formal training. So, I researched and experimented and researched and experimented and researched and experimented. Now there is a lot of training available online. Take advantage of it and never allow yourself to get too comfortable with your knowledge. The moment you think you know it all is the moment you fall behind because it is always changing.
  2. Use data / which companies do your hiring managers tend to recruit from? If you know that they typically hire people from company A, B or C, save yourself some time and headache and give them candidates based on historical hiring data.
