I’m what you might call a self-taught sourcer. I started my career in recruitment when I joined an agency. Actively approaching was new to them and also pretty new to me. So I started reading every blog I could find and by trial and error, I can say I got fairly good at it. I also discovered there was a great network of smart sourcers out there sharing tips, good reads, and tools. Throughout the years I developed my own sourcing style and I keep trying out new and different ways to find good people and most importantly engage with them. Currently, I am a freelance tech recruiter/sourcer and I help great companies scale their teams. When I’m not working, I write and speak about recruitment/sourcing and give sourcing training to recruitment teams.
