This press release was orginally distributed by SBWire
Akron, OH -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2015 -- 360HR, which specializes in building culturally diverse, expert staffing and training solutions, has added dedicated sourcing to their portfolio of services. Sourcing, unlike traditional recruiting, is a process to pipeline qualified candidates to growing companies as an offensive strategy rather than screening resumes gathered in response to an already-open position. 360HR believes that technology startups need this service more than other verticals.
According to the Society for Human Research Management (SHRM), "[Sourcing is] the proactive search for qualified job candidates for current or planned open positions; it is not the reactive function of reviewing resumes and applications sent to the company in response to a job posting or pre-screening candidates."
360HR Founder, Co-CEO and Chief Diversity JobMingler, Tonie Snell said, "Dedicated sourcing is quickly becoming a specialized field and a key component of talent acquisition. Sourcers are the ones that introduce the company, build the rapport that drives talent to the recruiter to manage the relationship, sell the company, present to the hiring manager, extend the offer and close the deal."
As sourcers are often the first people to speak to potential candidates on behalf of companies, they are, in effect, brand ambassadors for the companies, giving the first impression. Therefore, sourcers must be well-versed in the objectives of the company and the position for which they are seeking candidates and resourceful in their methods for which to grow their pipelines. Technology startups in particular often see large spurts of growth and having a few good candidates on-deck can make the difference between meeting initiatives and not.
