Hi! Question for independent contract recruiters! I am taking on clients as a solo recruiter on my own after layoffs impacted my dept. What sourcing tools do you use? LinkedIn Recruiter is the best when it comes to giving you sourcing abilities and enough outreach inmails, but unless you’re on an enterprise contract you don’t have access to that level of sub. What are other independent contract recruiters out there using instead to recruit and source for their clients? TIA!

Client or candidate sourcing?

Do you have any systems in place today? (ATS, automation tools, calendaring and scheduling)


Candidate sourcing. No branded systems in place. Ive been using personal systems I used to use when I first started my career in recruiting and the only resources we had was an excel sheets, good organization and follow up. I’m just starting out and am a one person show. What would you recommend?

I keep outlook closed while working because the notifications are very distracting and I have this huge compulsion to respond right away. I planned to open it hourly and set alarms so I wouldn’t forget. My colleague next door mentioned politely that he could hear an alarm going off every hour. Anyone know of a solution to this predicament? I don’t see a way to make outlook hold notifications and push them through only once an hour, but there might be a way.

SF - Salary for mid-level writer at a big name shop with 2 years experience at another big name shop?

Someone is trying to set me up with a guy (who seems nice…but I don’t really know him beyond texting a few times). I was born and raised in America, and he was born in india, and was raised in India until he was 15. It’s a no pressure situation, but I’m so hesitant to even move forward (ie going on a date) because of the culture gap. Am I being unreasonable? I’m 27F and hes 30M.

Good Morning all,

Since I pivoted into TA (from the Wild West known as Finance) Tech Recruiting has always been the goal. But I’m having a hard time finding a way to get into that space (I do understand there’s a hiring crisis). Nevertheless, does anyone know of tech companies that are hiring? I may be low on the experience side so I’m willing to look at contract/ entry roles as well. Also, any advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
