Where People Sourcing stops and Candidate Curation begins

Often I got the questions, what is sourcing, what is people sourcing.

Well here is your answer:
Sourcing, people sourcing is about finding people that match the profile you are looking for.

People sourcing is about creating a list of names, matching interests to what you are looking for in a person and a way to connect with the person.
Often starts with gathering intell about the profile in general, find out what the keywords are to be able to refine your results and get the best results. After these steps you go online and decide what to look for e.g. a resume, a social network profile, or a blog where these people gather etc. Collect the names and contact details matching the profile. Than you find. Full Stop. People Sourcing part has ended.

Candidate Curation begins
In my opinion, you are curating candidates from the moment you are in touch with a person to find out whether they qualify for pre selection, from the moment they answer you question “are you interested in more details about this role” with a yes.

A yes means you can put them in your ATS for further processing the candidate till you hire or decide not to hire the person.
Once you have decided, your company is going to pay for the mortgage of this person, the label candidate drops and Employee Relationship starts.

If you decide to stop the application / hiring process with the candidate, candidate curation is still very important, talking about Employer branding here. The rejected candidate could still become you brand advocate. WOOOOT!

Candidate Curation is a very important thing
… You need to be able to cope with.
Remember, if you start advertising your candidate profile, “job ad”, you might find people in your mailbox, dm, whatsapp, linkedin, Facebook, etc that show interest in your advertised profile.
By putting your job out there, you actually are asking the question: “are you interested in more details about this role” by showing interest, the person answers with “yes”.

Please do get back to them. candidate curation

Good candidate curation gets you further in your sourcing activities, the candidates most of the time get you new sources to explore, bring in new profiles and more useful keywords. So stay connected with your sourcers if you do the candidate curation.
People sourcing and candidate curation is like … “01010000 01100101 01101111 01110000 01101100 01100101 00100000 01110011 01101111 01110101 01110010 01100011 01101001 01101110 01100111 00100000 01100001 01101110 01100100 00100000 01100011 01100001 01101110 01100100 01101001 01100100 01100001 01110100 01100101 00100000 01100011 01110101 01110010 01100001 01110100 01101001 01101111 01101110” … without it doesn’t work….
