Tech Sourcing: Github & Stackoverflow for sourcers and recruiters

Updated: Jul 12, 2022

What are the advantages of sourcing on Github and Stackoverflow? **It’s Free!**

**AUGMENT and ENRICH profiles of tech talent beyond info you have on Linkedin**

(Personal blogs, likes and wants, links to slides and videos of presentations and more!)

**Offer the RIGHT job to a potential candidate**

**Simplify access to contact details and preferred way of outreach**

**Help you craft intelligent, relevant and personalized outreach emails**

True, Github and Stack Overflow were not meant, initially, for recruiters and sourcers.

However, it’s the home to dozens of millions of developers, VPs, CTOs and others who contribute to

the idea of open-source – A community that works together on projects.

Yes, you can use “Github Jobs” or “Stackoverflow Jobs” and post your jobs like anywhere else, but better yet, you can source on your own and select those that seem to be a promising match for your role.

75% of the activities on Github are private. But that still leaves us with almost 30 million projects to learn from.

Because it’s technical and contains code, recruiters and sourcers shy away from it…

But the truth is that it is SUPER EASY AND QUICK to use once you know what to look for!

The goal of this 3-hour workshop (+ 1 hour hands-on) is to give you additional tools to manually:

1. Learn how Github, Stackoverflow and other websites work and understand the terminology.

2. Source for top tech talent that’s not on Linkedin (Yes! And there are many!)

3. Cross-reference info

4. Find personal info (Leads you get on the platform)

5. Learn of some free tools that can provide some shortcuts

6. Learn of advanced tech recruiting tools that will shorten the process
