What are Corporate Sourcers and Recruiters Earning in 2015?

In recent weeks, I’ve shared some data about the responsibilities that sourcers and recruiters currently have within their organizations. We’ve concluded, based on the 2015 SourceCon State of Sourcing Survey, that 93% of sourcers surveyed are responsible for identifying candidates and then determining their interest level after conducting an initial phone screen.

We also collected salary data in the survey. The results confirmed that not only do sourcers do a lot of what was previously considered a recruiter task, they are being compensated at a similar level.

  1. Thanks for posting Jeremy and great information. The only question in my mind about these numbers is the COLA (cost of living adjustment). My experiences have shown that tech sourcers/recruiters in the Bay area are considerably higher than the rest of the country.

  2. Jeremy, is there more data that supports this by industry? We are on the hunt for information that breaks it down by geography and industry. Thanks
