In the talent recruiting sphere, the debate on the necessity of sourcing continues to rage, with strong opinions on both sides. Some recruiting firms stand by the practice of hiring specific sourcers who will track down and recruit promising candidates. Others have turned to sourcing automation, looking to job boards, social media, and tracking systems to turn up the most qualified candidates.
However, it looks as though neither of these tactics is wholly the best on its own. Eschewing technology means piling a significant amount of repetitive task work onto a sourcer’s to-do list, and misses the mark in terms of staying current and appealing to the technological savvy of job seekers. On the other hand, getting rid of human sourcing leaves the selection process entirely up to job seekers, meaning that businesses are at the mercy of who sees a job posting and chooses to apply.
StellarHire Partners employs both of these tactics in recruiting talent for all industries. They use the most cutting edge technology to source, develop, and manage talent. At the same time, StellarHire Partners bring years of experience in recruitment to each client, ensuring that a deep pool of candidates is evaluated by experts who understand which seekers are the best for a particular job. This combination of technological advancement and an expert touch is what differentiates StellarHire Partners from the rest of the recruiting firm pack.
