Tulsie specializes in helping companies identify, attract, and engage with the right candidates to fill those hard-to-fill vacancies. Several indicators can help companies determine when they need our smart sourcing solutions.

How Does Smart Sourcing as a Service Help with Recruitment?

We speed up the hiring process by offering a full-service sourcing approach where we not only find the best candidates, but we also create engagement through a personalized messaging strategy. This customized messaging will speak and resonate with your ideal candidate, as well as connect with their needs on a deeper level so that they’re ready to convert in your recruitment process. We believe that recruitment is becoming more and more specialized and that attracting a candidate is no longer about just selling a job or simply building an employer brand. First, you need to connect on a human level with your prospective candidates.

How is this different from hiring a contract recruiter who sources?

Contract recruiters tend to use basic sourcing strategies, such as discovering online profiles on various social media platforms like LinkedIn using tactics like Boolean searches. With today's competitive marketplace, these strategies alone are proving to be very ineffective at sourcing top talent. At Tulsie, we take the sourcing process one step further. We combine industry, job market, and candidate behavior data to identify candidate behavior patterns. We, then use this insight to develop a customized sourcing strategy that takes the right recruitment marketing approach and includes the targeted message campaign to attract, engage and hire your "ideal" candidate faster and more effectively.

What is Smart Sourcing in Recruitment?

Our smart sourcing services combine industry insight, behavior science, and recruitment technology to develop customized recruitment strategies for our clients. Our customized solutions allow us to reflect on the specific needs of each candidate group, which helps to drive better recruitment results, including an improved quality-of-hire, enhanced candidate engagement, and reduced hiring costs. Smart sourcing is ideal when hiring new roles within the company, multiple function roles, specialized roles, and hybrid roles.

Is Smart Sourcing the same as Recruitment Marketing?

Smart sourcing and recruitment marketing are not the same things, but our data-driven strategies enable us to help you develop a customized recruitment marketing strategy that is right for your specific company. Like recruitment marketing, we use employer brand building concepts to help you develop a unique position statement that is designed to target your "ideal" candidate. We use other recruitment marketing techniques, such as direct candidate sourcing and creating a candidate-centric approach to convert your candidates into new hires.

Why a full-Service Sourcing in Recruitment?

Most sourcing services will provide you with an additional contract recruiter whose job it is to source candidates and provide you with a list of relevant profiles for you to contact. Typically, a contract recruiter will use the recruitment system you have in place to search for candidates on various social platforms. Sourcing, however, is not just about identifying qualified candidates, it also is about developing a strong engagement strategy that entices these candidates to accept the offer. We provide a full-service sourcing model that combines technology, data, and candidate behavior science to connect the dots and understand how your target candidates think, act, and behave online. We use this valuable insight to create a customized Social Recruitment Campaign that attracts, connects, and engages with the most qualified candidates. At the end of the process, we don't provide with just a list of prospective candidates, but we give you a shortlist of qualified, prescreened and most importantly engaged candidates.

Why don't you send me a list of resumes?

As smart sourcers, we set our primary focus on building relationships. Our goal is not just to sell you candidates, but to add value to recruitment efforts improving your quality-of-hire and reducing the time-to-fill. We do this by taking the time to understand your business, the industry, and the roles you need to fill in order to get a clear picture of which candidates will help you grow, build, and transform your company.

Why do you work exclusively as a sourcer service?

For years, employers have turned to multiple recruitment agencies to fill open positions within the company. The theory is that each recruitment agency has a large database of potential candidates, so by working with multiple agencies, employers can increase the number of applicants. While these agencies may still be able to deliver a large number of potential candidates, it's the quality of these candidates that's lacking. Finding quality candidates requires more because the candidate mindset has changed. It is no longer enough to place a job ad or call prospective candidates and tell them you have a job for them. Today's dynamic job market demands more, especially when you're trying to fill those hard-to-fill positions. You must create a unique and engaging story that matches the profile and interests of your target candidate. This level of engagement not only takes time, but it also requires a joint effort by all parties, including a specialized sourcer service.

What is the time-frame for the exclusivity period?

The exclusivity period lasts for only 40 days. However, we are so confident that you will receive great results within these first 40 days that you will not need to look elsewhere for results.

Companies We Work With
