Frequently Asked Questions
The main difference between a sourcer and a recruiter is whether there is non-voice or voice communication with candidates. A sourcer is only sourcing resumes online and will only initiate email communication (non-voice communication) with a candidate at the client’s discretion. In addition to sourcing qualified candidates, a recruiter calls and pre-screens candidates (voice communication) for our clients by phone.
Our clients provide us with a detailed job description for each position, which we use to identify search terms for sourcing candidates for each specific role. The more details you provide on the role and your requirements, the more effective and efficient 247 will be. To help our clients gauge search activity and effectiveness, we provide detailed daily submission reports that show search strings, number of resumes sourced, names of candidates and the job boards used to source each candidate.

Sourcers can work up to five positions each day of a five-day work week. You can change the positions the sourcer works on every day. Therefore, sourcers may work on up to 25 positions per week.

You will decide how far back you would like us to search and provide us with this information for each search request.
We provide you with the contact information the candidate has uploaded to job boards and/or social media sites. We utilize in-house, proprietary software to source email/phone data that is within the public domain and add it to candidate profiles prior to submitting them to you. However, email or phone data must be within the public domain for us to be able to provide it.
