Ep 68: How To Source The Very Best Talent

One of the topics we’ve never really covered in much detail on the podcast is the role of sourcing in corporate recruiting. It is obviously something that is absolutely critical to many organizations particularly those who are recruiting in market segments that are suffering skill shortages.

My guest this week is Chris Shaw Director of Talent at Meteor. Chris has previously been part of the recruiting team at Google and was part of the team who recruited 300 hires in 11 months at Twitter. At Meteor he focuses on recruiting the top 1% of the top 1% of technology talent and I’m delighted he agreed to come on the show to share his thoughts and some of the practical techniques he uses.

In the interview we discuss:

•    Why turning passive candidates into active ones is always better than post and pray

•    How to identify your Hiring Bar

•    The importance of a great ATS

•    Automation and personalization

Chris also gives us a step by step walk through of the techniques he uses and share his thoughts on the future of sourcing

This episode the podcast is kindly sponsored by Lever, where ATS meets CRM
