Awesome Recruitment

Hi there, I am Sjamilla πŸ‘‹,

I am a Tech Sourcer & Recruiter from the Netherlands πŸ‡³πŸ‡±. I help great companies scale their technical teams and give Sourcing trainings to Recruitment teams. You are currrently looking at a list of (recruitment) tools and resources that I use πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™€οΈ.

I created this in 2018 because I couldn't handle having all these resources in different places, so that's when I decided to put it here. Just for me, but I figured: why not make it public so other people can use it too 😁. I hope you find it useful!

I use this list on a daily base myself (I have it pinned as my first tab) and add new stuff whenever I find something that I think is cool πŸ‘‰ This is a work in progress, and probably will be for the upcoming 100 years 🀷.

Can you help? yes! This is open source and I don't have time to update this list on a daily base or check if links still work. So if something wrong or if you want to add something please read this to contribute. If you'd like to help & maintain this page, please drop me a message (happy to collaborate on it together as I do not always have the time to maintain it myself).

Note: I don't find all this stuff myself, I put it here after I find it on Product Hunt, blogs, hear about them from amazing people in the recruiting / sourcing community and at conferences.

See this?

πŸ’° = no free or freemium version.

❀️ = apps that I personaly use A LOT and consider my favourites.

Using any of these resources is at your own risk. Most are not mine, and if they were I wouldn't tell you. I am not responsible for your safety / compliancy / relationship / dogs & cats or anything else you like to bitch about. Unless you hire some great people after you found this list, in that case you need to buy me pretty stuff. OKTHXBYE xoxo
