Source of hire: what it is, how to measure it and how to use it
JULY 5, 2017
Data from your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) shows that 20 of them were referred (40%), 15 applied through job boards (30%), 12 were contacted through direct sourcing efforts (24%) and three came from career fairs (6%.) If they remain at the bottom of the distribution for a long time, experiment with other sources or rethink the way you screen candidates from career fairs. Also, decide whether you will only track hires or gather data on candidate sources too.
