Personnel Recruitment – Active Sourcing

The search for fitting talents is often difficult. Unexpected shortages are frequent and single positions have to be filled in a timely manner with suitable talents. Posted job advertisements receive relatively small numbers of applications because the range of advertisements online is enormous and single ads can get lost in the masses.
For those reasons HR managers -seeking new staff- are more actively searching for talents on the Internet. Social media platforms are looked through with care for potential job candidates which would be suited best for the respective position. This approach is called “Active Sourcing”.

Active Sourcing is the searching, locating and contacting of people over social media or specific platforms on the Internet with the intention of finding and recruiting suitable talents.

Active Sourcing also makes it possible to target and address passive job seekers. However, Active Sourcing is a laborious task and very time consuming. We can help you find appropriate talents fast through social media channels so your human resources department workload can be lightened.
Our Clickworkers will perform a prescan on all target platforms. They will search through all respective social media platforms like LinkedIn for talents according to your specifications. All links for potential applicants will be prepared as a list and made available to you.

The support of our Clickworkers with your active sourcing activities verifiably lessens the expenses of your recruiting process, increases the amount of applicants for your job vacancies and improves quality. Additionally, you can use the connections with the applicants to step by step establish and expand a network of talents. This you can then even use long-term to fill open positions faster in the future.
