The innovators who change the world all have something in common: they think differently. Individuals like Jobs, Gates,
Carnegie and Bezos have developed and originated ideas, markets and technology that were, by others, unimaginable. How did they become such innovators? Simply put, they used an alternative approach of thinking. In my opinion, "alternative thinking" is the backbone of advancement and has an infinite amount of value when developing a method for alternatively sourcing candidates. Recruiters use alternative recruitment methods to contact individuals thought to be unreachable, and there is no "one size fits all" alternative method of sourcing; it hinges on the recruiter, the employment brand and the talent community.
