Sourcing

Handshake

The process of finding talent has become much easier in recent years with advances in technology and more sophisticated recruiting methods. However, finding the right talent has become more challenging particularly given demand for essential skills and experiences as well as ensuring a match to your organizational culture and values. Today’s sourcing strategies require knowledge of not only how to successfully access and navigate university recruiting channels, but also how to be adaptive and effectively communicate with each unique discipline. Developing a clear sourcing strategy can be challenging at the graduate level especially given the complexity of the student’s scholarly work and depth of understanding of the research. Graduate Career Services can help you develop a plan to access the right graduate talent to meet your needs. Successful graduate sourcing often starts with a focus on early to mid-stage graduate talent, and ­finding ways to not only identify and connect with them but to keep them engaged over an extended period during their graduate training.
