Breaking Down Direct Sourcing: The 4 Big Moves 🚀
Alright then, it's time to lay down the building blocks for Direct Sourcing. Whether you're going at this solo or looking at this from a client's perspective (hello, MSPs),
we have to nail the Direct Sourcing essentials first. So, let's get into the four major steps that really make it tick.
1. Making a Plan: The First Big Step
Any big win starts with a great plan. The same goes for Direct Sourcing. You need to get your head in the game, start thinking ahead, and get ready for what's coming.
2. Jumpstart the Pool: Get Your People
Having a plan is cool, but it's nothing without action. You need people in your talent pool. To start, think simple. Check these boxes:
- People you've worked with before
- People who know your company
- People your employees suggest
- People from your alumni network
- The "almost hired" from past jobs
3. Pump Up the Pool: Shine Your Brand
Now you've got some people in your pool, let's bring in more. Your brand is your magnet. It tells people what you stand for, what your vibe is, and why they should join you.
To step up your game, look at your website. Is it telling your story well? Next, check your social media. Is it buzzing with your company's good stuff? If not, it's time to rev up!
4. Tech Up: The Secret Sauce
Lastly, you need great tech. You want a system that works under your brand, giving your people a smooth ride.
Good tech is not just about keeping things tidy. It's about seeing the big picture. It lets you bring your plan to life, breaking down walls and getting everyone on the same page.
