Sourcing Accelerator

Level up your team
Attendees will learn data-driven approaches to sourcing, how to write outreaches that actually get a response, and advanced search techniques that go beyond LinkedIn — with a DEI lens throughout.

This training is for you if:

  • You’re new(ish) to sourcing and want to expand your skillset beyond Boolean, and act as a strategic advisor to your hiring managers and recruiting partner.
  • You’re a full-cycle recruiter or closer who’s being asked to do more sourcing lately, and you want a comprehensive understanding of how to approach the craft of sourcing, including intakes, efficient search approaches if you have limited time, writing better outreach, and being data driven.
  • You’re an agency recruiter looking to move inhouse, so you want to bolster your skills & knowledge.
  • You’re a talent partner at a VC and need to do brand new types of sourcing for your portfolio companies, which requires new and more strategic approaches to finding and engaging candidates.
  • You’re a manager leading a team that includes sourcers and you want to learn best practices when it comes to sourcing effectiveness so that you can level up, and properly manage, your team.

In-house team training is available upon request.

What people are saying about this course

“I was so impressed with the team’s learning from the sourcing accelerator. The GBD team did a fantastic job training our team on diversity sourcing and how they could improve their reach out templates. It seems small, but changing our reach outs and implementing the diversity sourcing tips had immediate impact our top of funnel efforts. The team who attended came back energized and excited to share their knowledge with the broader group. This was arguably one of the best business investments we made in 2022.”
