I came across this article Top 20 biggest websites in South Africa. The statistics for Top websites visited by South Africans makes interesting reading for us sourcing geniuses 🙂 Bottom line the masses are on Facebook! so we should be sourcing on Facebook and as we already know they are on Google but Google takes number one and number two spots! I still believe Google Plus will make it big. For those into online advertising, I guess Google.com and Google.co.za should be your targets. Also note how high YouTube is… #2016 will be interesting

1. Use a professional email address like Firstname.Surname@Gmail.com
2. Subject should contain what you do e.g Project Engineer, Forklift Driver, Personal Assistant etc
3. Always indicate your area of residence e.g Durban, Bloemfontein, Piet Retief etc
4. Do not use the words “Hi or Hie” especially in the subject line, spam servers pick that up as spam and besides you do not know the person you are emailing to. Always be professional and say “Good Day or Greetings”
5. Don’t attach certificates unless if the advert requires you to.
6. Avoid emailing compressed files such as zip files as they are considered potentially to be viruses or containing viruses
7. Write a very short message in message body stating what you are looking for and in which areas and industries.
Facebook users who have their Language setting set to English(US) have access to Facebook Graph Search. This is a massively powerful search engine of all the data within Facebook. People, companies, groups and even concepts are represented on Facebook by different types of Pages. Every time a user does something on Facebook it creates a relationship between that user and the other thing they have liked or friended or interacted with. All these pages and the relationships between them are searchable and provide a massive freely available resource to recruiters.
