Great Sourcers build with Care

This is a Playable (your edits won’t be saved) version of the Framework I built out for Shopify. The original version is still used regularly by every Sourcer w/n TA.

Much of the functionality, search histories, user options, etc. have been hidden. Having said that you can still get a very good sense of the flexibility and power that sourcing solutions can bring to the table.

Why do we need a Sourcing Framework? How is this better than Linkedin Recruiter, etc.?

Speeds up your searches, gives you more precise results, tracks quality over time, speeds up and formalized competitive intel on target companies that are aligned with our space and stack.
Most importantly, it allows us to share our efforts in an open format with our Hiring Managers, Sr. Talent Leadership, etc.
And, as our Hiring Managers have proven, they are quite effective at Sourcing candidates if we give them open access to tools that “make sense” to them.

What type of companies should be added?

Major tech companies, eCommerce, SaaS, PaaS, fintech, payments, companies stemming from Hiring Manager Submittals or that employ 4-5 star short-list candidates who have went through the interview process.

Which Chrome Extensions do I use for best results?

changed “visited links” color to something more obvious so you can skip previously viewed candidates
Provides deeper surface-level context w/n google search results
highlights multiple words/phrases

👋 Search Tips

Region options
There are 3 regions in the dropdown below to choose from: APAC, EMEA, and NORAM. To remove California, for example, use a NOT operator
The “AROUND” operator is very powerful. It is a “proximity” search operator and allows you to search for words or phrases with X number of words of one another. Remember to use the # column when using AROUND to set the distance.
Nesting (boolean strings w/n individual cells)
Please use nesting in the Keywords section but not in Title searches.
Logging Diversity
searches reveals female candidates. If you’re searching by company and they have a good female population please click
to add them to the Diverse Companies tab, allowing other users to benefit from your experience 🙌
