Sourcing is an integral part of recruiting – recruiting doesn’t exist without candidates.

Sourcing refers to the initial phase of recruiting where passive candidates are found through a variety of search methods. NSITE’s Sourcing Certificate Program provides comprehensive instruction in using and applying the tools, resources, and research methods needed to locate passive candidates and their contact information. The sourcer then “hands off” this information to a team of recruiters who carry out the qualification, interview, and placement process.

Career opportunities for professional sourcers are abundant, have seen consistent growth over the past several decades, and are expected to continue to increase well into the future. Employment opportunities exist within companies where sourcers support recruiters as well as at many executive search/recruiting agencies. The professional sourcing career field offers some unique aspects, including considerable flexibility in terms of when and from what internet connected location work can be completed and offers may remote employment opportunities.
