Resume Sourcing for Startups – Faster and cheaper than a recruiter or internal hiring manager

Original post by Joyce Akiko via Go HR for Startups

For the past couple months I’ve been working with a Philadelphia-based minority owned startup called Talentoid. The founder, GigiJK, started some discussions with me. We found that time and cost are two big problems when it comes to traditional hiring processes and we wanted to come up with a creative alternative. What we ended up with is: resume sourcing.

Companies have a couple options when it comes to filling a job opening. They can hire a hiring manager to take care of it. They can also hire a recruiter. And in most cases in the startup world, they try to hack it themselves. However all three of these options are extremely time consuming and expensive.
