I recently closed one of the niche senior level positions

I recently closed one of the niche senior level positions in IT vertical with one of our prestigious Auto manufacturing client.
While sharing the position we were told not to screen profiles from the portals as they have already exhausted. They were not ready to compromise on education (even marks), job switches, industry, role & level etc. Also the technology was niche in the industry. We certainly started with portal & social networking sites but in vain since it was difficult to map any IT organization with hundreds of project managers, leads etc.
Therefore we thought of few social networking tactics. We had made our search open to beyond social networking sites like checked blogs, various forums, speakers in the groups, attendee list in related technology seminar, various summits which happened recently & posted opening on facebook.
It is very important for a recruiter to reach out to the best candidate via any source. Above all tactics helped & the client appreciated the innovation & efforts.
