Passive Candidate Sourcing - Target the Right Talent

Any recruiter who is assigned with the task of finding the right fit for a job opening has to essentially put on the shoes of a treasure hunter. Yes! Recruiting the best candidate for every single assignment is no cakewalk. When it comes to sourcing, Internet is the river of life for recruiters. And the list of avenues where they hunt is numerous. From Social Networking profiles to Job Boards, the options are plenty and the resumes available are uncountable. But most times the best talent remains hidden and cannot be reached through traditional methods.


The buzz of passive candidate sourcing has been hovering around the recruiting space for a while now and the most successful recruiters are the ones who have mastered this art. To be fair Boolean Search Experts have had the cherry so far when it comes to finding passive resumes. The simple reason being the major proportion of their sourcing results are passive candidate profiles. While their counter parts are held up with weeding out the generic resumes, the smarter ones skim off the cream and find the best candidate for the job in hand. All said and done, becoming a Boolean search expert itself is a stiff climb. Perhaps, a much steeper climb than passive candidate sourcing.


Automating a part of the recruitment process would be helpful for Boolean search amateurs in finding more passive candidates. For example, the most time consuming task in recruitment is sourcing and that can be made simpler, faster and more productive by using resume-sourcing software. The biggest advantage of sourcing toolsis that they have such advanced Boolean strings built into them that empowers you to source as good as any Boolean search expert. Result, a set of passive candidates whom you could have never reached with your traditional efforts. Apart from moving you a couple of notches ahead in passive candidate sourcing, such tools can bring down the time involved in manually searching for resumes drastically and allow you to focus more on the assessment and hiring stages of the recruitment process.
