Hi there, I am Sjamilla
I am a freelance / Interim Tech Sourcer from the Netherlands
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 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
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.
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.

The rest is pretty cool too, but these deserve a special place :)
This simple text editor in my browser
tip: create a bookmark with this (only this line of code) and pin it on the first tab when you are sourcing

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
