Thanks so much for attending today's sourcing jam. It was a big group and lots of good ideas, so a big thank you to anyone who participated, shared, made suggestions, asked questions. Love it!
I'm glad that we ended up in a good place by the end of our sourcing time together and, even though the search results looked pretty good, I spent another 10 minutes after the call doing a bit of refining to further narrow and target. I saved each step of this narrowing process and color-coded it for you all to see. It's a little bright and hard on the eyes, but hope it helps! ;)
I also played with the job titles a bit to try to target retail showroom / furniture folks and ended up with this list (but I'm sure there are many others to still play with):
Here are the goodie bag items and I hope they're helpful to you!
1. Sourcing Doc template - always, always, always create a sourcing doc. You'll never lose track of where you left off (for next time), what you've already tried, what worked and what doesn't, etc. And you can actually see what you're typing rather than fitting everything in that tiny box on LinkedIn that cuts off after so many characters. It's also something you can share with your hiring manager, your boss, your peers, etc. if you ever get stuck and need to brainstorm or strategize.

2. Diversity Sourcing Cheatsheet - please use this and let me know if you have anything I should add to make the spreadsheet better, more complete, more accurate, etc.
