Competitive Intelligence for Recruiters
Competitive Intelligence (CI) refers to the process of gathering and analyzing information about a company's industry, business environment, competitors, and services. By applying the same research techniques used in Competitive Intelligence, Sourcers and Recruiters can gain valuable insights into the job market. This knowledge provides value throughout the entire recruitment process - from advising hiring managers on the intake process to negotiating with candidates and closing deals.
Access to previously gathered Competitive Intelligence can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your sourcing efforts. By utilizing this information, you can refine your approach to sites, tools, and search strings for optimal results. For example, knowing which companies are hiring or firing in specific locations can inform your search strategy when sourcing from a target company list.
By conducting thorough research before sourcing, you can achieve faster results, build comprehensive talent pipelines, identify unique prospects, and engage with confidence through informed interactions.

You'll learn to leverage familiar tools like search engines, job boards, and social networks in innovative ways, applying them to uncover competitors in a specific industry or location, identify similar job titles across multiple companies, pinpoint organizations that use the same technology or methods as your own, gather salary data, and more.
