Step 3:  Plug buzzwords into sourcing platform.  

Step 4:  Look at every profile and decide who to message.  

Step 5:  Reach out and mention how they have a great profile and you saw your buzzwords on it, so you know they’re a fit for the job.  

Step 6:  Zofran for the nausea, cat videos for the boredom, and therapy to discuss why you keep doing this job the same boring way every time.  

Step 7:  This Matchr webinar!

Let’s talk about search strategy.  Here’s what we’ll talk about:

  • Start Narrow, then expand (and why this is the right way to source*)
  • How to go beyond the buzzwords
  • Some light web scraping & Boolean building
  • Reduce your Zofran intake, time on TikTok, and spend on therapy**

*    yes, you can build a talent map by starting with a wider net, and I’m happy to have an open discussion about why I think this is the wrong way to do this

**  still important – all recruiters need a good therapist IMO.
