Brainfood Live On Air - Ep166 - Sourcing Candidates on Reddit

August 5, 2022

Sourcing Candidates on Reddit


Reddit is one of the world's most popular websites with millions of visitors every day, and yet its comment based interface has proven to be a puzzle for most recruiters who might have found it too intimidating a place to source candidates. This is a shame as the demographic on reddit skews towards tech and engineering, some of the most in-demand skills in the current market place.


We need to get better at this, so today's Brainfood Live is going to be about how we get to grips with this platform and mine the gold that is right there at our fingertips


- What is Reddit?

- How to understand the information architecture

- How to search for subreddits

- X-ray vs in-platform search

- Identifying candidates on Reddit

- Messaging etiquette

- Advertising options

All this and more with Erin Mathew, Senior Tech Talent Sourcer, (PayPal) & Wim Dammans Recruiter (TenneT)
