What channels do professional services use for sourcing candidates?

What channels do professional services use for sourcing candidates?

Professional & Business Services recruiters rely heavily on Professional Social Networks and Careers/Website for finding candidates. There is also widespread use of Employee Referrals and ATS, CRM & Talent Pools.

39% in-house recruitment teams within Professional Services turn to Agencies for help in filling their jobs. This percentage has reduced from the prior year but  can have a major impact on a company's cost of hire. It is worth reviewing other sources that can generate a good quantity and quality of candidates.
