  7. 7. select sourcing channel select zip code & radius past employer & keywords current or target titles & comp when, why, & how to approach
  8. 8. Engagement This is the big issue. We cant move forward without the candidates involvement. Soo.How do we measure and predict engagement? CASE: This will save time and increase candidates submittal
  9. 9. How do you build searches? Where to search what keywords which zip code how big a radius how recent any alternate titles any preferred employers or schools select the sort order criteria for review
  10. 10. The basic sourcing process 1. Build lots of a searches in many databases 2. Rapidly Review the results 3. Collect the keepers 4. Attempt to contact the best Then Wait 5. Screen and assess the ones that respond 6. Prep and send the qualified to the manager
  11. 11. Stop fishing in a barrel Divide search area into sensible segment
  12. 12. 90 Days 20 miles The Barrel
  13. 13. How many fit in the big circle? 20 miles 5 miles
  14. 14. 16 Little Circles fit (4 squared) = 2
  15. 15. 90 Days 20 miles
  16. 16. Core (nearest) Table Top (newest) Donut (Older) Table Cloth (coming soon) Bottom Barrel (Aged)Each shape gets a different campaign code
  17. 17. Build a task list of searches Track which searches are best return on time invested Simple worksheet to that totals lead for each shape and channel SearchID, date, time spend, reviewed, liked, sent to mgr, selected Code email message so you can track which search get faster responses, and manager selected for interviews or offers Test different shapes and for different jobs locations and roles I recommend putting job location in the subject line
  18. 18. Problem: too few results returned Solution: Use a simple search that is more inclusive not so restrictive.
  19. 19. Hacking the Highlighter using highlight feature for more rapid review
  20. 20. Concept: Simplify your searches Rule: Use Nearness and Newness instead or lots of keywords to filter. Try one or two most important words only
  21. 21. Concept: Simplify your searches Rule: Use Nearness and Newness instead or lots of keywords to filter. Try one or two most important words only
  22. 22. Big Problem: Every Recruiter Picks Different Words 10 Words- 14% 5 Words 22% 3 Words - 50% 1 Word 95% - Given - 100% Just Make it Assigned
  23. 23. java 25 results and highlight only that word (java OR j2ee OR jsp OR spring) 50 Results highlights ALL words What happens when you combine these two ideas?
  24. 24. java 25 results and highlight only that word (java OR j2ee OR jsp OR spring) 50 Results highlights ALL words NOW COMBINE THEM java AND (java OR j2ee OR jsp OR spring) ???? More, Less, or Same Why is this so HELPFUL? Simple search, easy to review rapidly
  25. 25. 1. Select 10-20 words for the job descriptions 2. Add 5-10 more important words that are not in description 3. Pick the MOST important Keyword and is required on resumes 4. Move this keyword to the first position 5. Put an OR operator between each work and add parentheses (one OR two OR three OR four OR five) 6. Now repeat the first keyword with AND operation in front one AND (one OR two OR three OR four OR five)
  26. 26. Haves Have NOTs NOT is used as a way to review best first NOT as a garbage removal tools
  27. 27. Third Concept - Dividing the Results into 2 sets Employer: (Amazon OR Microsoft OR Google OR IBM) Title: (developer OR programmer OR software engineer) Schools: (MIT OR YALE OR Harvard OR Boston College) Then Add and NOT in FRONT to see second set
  28. 28. Third Concept - Divide the Result into 2 sets Employer: (Amazon OR Microsoft OR Google OR IBM) Title: (developer OR programmer OR software engineer) Schools: (MIT OR YALE OR Harvard OR Boston College) Then Add and NOT in FRONT to see second set NOT (Amazon OR Microsoft OR Google OR IBM) NOT (developer OR programmer OR software engineer)
  29. 29. 1. Use smaller zip codes radius to find nearest candidates first 2. Select different data sets using create/modified fields, Newness 3. Select 10-20 keywords put most important first 4. Use a redundant AND command and use OR for the rest 5. Select 2nd field critical field to further filter, title, edu, employer 6. Soft be either keyword rank, nearest, or newest 7. Add a NOT command to review the Have NOT 8. Bookmark to save and log search string and results The Most Important Takeaways
