The first step in the sourcing strategy for many sourcers and recruiters is to harvest the low-hanging fruit—e.g.-search the internal database of previous candidates. This is an efficient sourcing strategy because past candidates already have a relationship with the company and therefore they are a lot more likely to be interested in the company. But here is lies the problem: most ATS solutions don’t provide good search capabilities.
Enter the Google ATS: Hire improves sourcing by making the internal candidate database easily searchable. It allows to rediscover high potential candidates - ones who received high interview scores but weren’t hired, or received an offer but declined. These candidates—and others in your database—can be a great match for a new position.
