At Google we have a dedicated sourcing team, a team to review applications from online, and then recruiters to work those candidates through the process. In some teams you have to source your own candidates. I am a recruiter who is a terrible sourcer. Ha! But that is how it works. I believe FB is similar? Not sure about others, though.

Sourcing 12-20, a little tough but doable. and can have great WLB once calibrated. Recruiting; 20ish and a total nightmare IMO

From what I gather it's a good mix of both so if you have that in your background, you're in a good spot!

Recruiters at MSFT manage a recruitment process. People in process comes from one of the four following “channels” Internal applicants External applicants recommended by existing employee Website applicants Sourced candidates Recruiters do source (headhunt) candidates sometimes but depends on whether they have bandwidth to do so - bandwidth will depend on number of requisitions being handled.

Super interesting to see this - out of curiosity, are internal candidates/referrals given priority or external? How is that balance handled?

There are metrics to work to which vary dependent upon role. Metrics can be % of internal hires, % of external hires and number of diverse candidates.
