How To Transform Your Talent Search Data Into A Hire

USING “SOURCING ALCHEMY” TO CREATE A REPEATABLE SOURCE-TO-HIRE PROCESS

Alchemy is the study of focused transformation. I have always been fascinated by alchemy because the aim is to take some low value resource, like lead, and turn it into a high value resource like gold. In a way, a production line is an alchemical process. We take raw material through a specific, repeatable process and we transform it into something more valuable.

In truth, introversion is not synonymous with these descriptors, but rather introversion is about neurological sensitivity to stimuli, including the motivation to seek reward from the environment.

At your desk in the morning you read Google alerts, at lunch you browse LinkedIn, and by dinner you realize you must call your ZoomInfo rep again to add contacts. At this point in your career, you’ve developed a six-cups-of-coffee-a-day habit that has ruled out your fallback job as a surgeon. Congratulations, you’re a Sourcer.
