  1. I’m pretty sure that this isn’t representative of the entire internet. Kind of like how these awesome sourcers listed aren’t representative of an industry made up mostly of people who prefer Boolean to logic and hacking over hiring.

  2. Jeremy, thank you for the post. The sourcecon.qa community has been very helpful to me professionally, and I have appreciated the dialogue. I am excited to see more sourcers & recruiters join the site and contribute to the conversation.

  3. Quora has an excellent thread about who the top online sourcing experts
    are
    (https://www.quora.com/Recruiting/Who-are-the-online-sourcing-experts)
    and it’s nice to see high (though not complete) overlap with this list.
    As Matt says, many accomplished professionals are going to spend more
    time on their own hiring needs than sharing sourcing tips with others –
    it’s just a fact of human nature. The problem is getting those other
    experts to spend more time answering questions for the betterment of the
    industry. But I believe another part of human nature is altruistic,
    and they will come around when they see there’s two-way (arguably
    synergistic) benefit to sharing expertise. To paraphrase “Field of
    Dreams”, just keep building SourcingQA into a resource of value and
    eventually they will come.
