I am a seasoned name sourcer and recruiter working for retained search firms for corporations and executive search firms for the past 6 years. I enjoy meeting and talking to people everyday. My forte is picking up the phone and placing countless calls per day. My favorite saying is "do unto others as you want them to do unto you". I wish all my peers in the industry a prosperous New Year for 2009..

What do you think sourcing brings to the recruiting process?
Time. So much time is being saved when a corporation or executive search firm hires a company that provides name sourcing services. All the recruiter has to do is call all the confirmed names on the excel spreadsheet and try and talk those candidates into keeping their options open and explore their clients opportunity.
Do you think one type of sourcing produces better results than another? Which and why?
Quick and Dirty - if you had six hours to source 50 Process Engineers in the chem/energy/food/pharma industry what would you do?
Go to Linkedin and create a search that matches the criteria provided (company name) including geographic location. In the title field type process engineers. Click the search button and the names that come up I will use to get my foot in the door. This is the first step that I would take. Then if that is not working I will take other steps.
Where do you learn about name sourcing?
When I was employed with Custom Research Solutions. Thea Rodrigue trained me and that is where is picked up the skill. I was with Custom Research Solutions for 3 years.
