Source Owls has disrupted the traditional recruiting model with its innovative marketplace platform. Offering flexibility, higher payouts, direct communication for recruiters, and access to a vast network of seasoned professionals for clients, Source Owls is revolutionizing the industry. Explore this cutting-edge solution in our exclusive interview.

Addressing the Pain Points

The inspiration behind Source Owls stemmed from a deep understanding of the challenges faced by both recruiters and clients in the traditional recruiting landscape. As Locascio explained:

“When we researched creating this platform, we had already worked in other platforms on our own, but we also did a lot of market research. And the number one issue we heard from recruiters time and time again is that they submitted to a black hole. They did not know who that end client was. They never got feedback.”

This lack of transparency and communication was a significant pain point for recruiters, leading to frustration, wasted time, and lost opportunities. Source Owls was determined to address this issue head-on, creating a platform that fosters open communication and eliminates the “black hole” scenario.

A Flexible Solution for Recruiters

At the core of Source Owls' offering is a commitment to providing recruiters with unparalleled flexibility and higher earning potential. As Locascio explained:

“For recruiters, it's a great way for them to have flexibility, work how they want, when they want, get top-tier payouts. They get anywhere from 50 all the way up to 80% of the overall fees. They are able to work when and how they want.”

This level of flexibility is a game-changer for recruiters who have traditionally been bound by rigid schedules and office environments. With Source Owls, recruiters can create their schedules, choose the requisitions they want to work on, and earn significantly higher payouts than traditional recruiting firms.

Transparency and Communication: Keys to Success

One of the standout features of the Source Owls platform is its emphasis on transparency and communication. As Locascio highlighted:

“You can see who that end client is, who the individual is that you're working with. And you are able to communicate with them, not only in the platform, but you have their email address, you have their phone number.”

This level of transparency and direct communication eliminates the frustration of submitting candidates into a “black hole,” ensuring that recruiters receive feedback and can effectively manage the process.

A Vast Network of Clients

While Source Owls offers a compelling value proposition for recruiters, the platform also caters to the needs of clients seeking top talent. As Locascio explained:

“For clients, they come to us because right now we are sitting at just under 6,000 recruiters. So we were able to scale a lot quicker since we are a platform. But everybody is seasoned, everybody is niche, and we have the volume. So therefore, for our clients, we're just able to supply quality candidates quicker.”

With access to a vast network of over 6,000 seasoned, niche recruiters, Source Owls provides clients with a scalable solution for filling their open positions quickly and efficiently. Clients can work directly with account managers or leverage the platform's tools to create their teams of recruiters, tailored to their specific hiring needs.

Quality Candidates and Cost Savings

In addition to the speed and scalability offered by Source Owls, clients can also benefit from the quality of candidates and potential cost savings. As Locascio noted:

“So I think that for clients, they get that quality quicker. And quite often they're able to do it at a substantial savings as well.”

By leveraging the platform's network of experienced recruiters and streamlined processes, clients can access top-tier candidates more efficiently, potentially reducing their overall hiring costs.
