What is a tech stack?

Tech stack = a bunch of essential tools that help you do your job better. 

A tech stack is the set of technologies, tools and platforms that recruiters use to handle candidate sourcing and business development. 

Think of it as your toolkit for finding talent and winning new and repeat clients. 

These tools make everything streamlined and more efficient, particularly when you have to juggle hundreds of tasks every week and reach out to a HUGE amount of people to get your job done.

Your workflow before SourceWhale 

Let’s paint a picture.

Eren Salih, Lead Account Executive here at SourceWhale, is going to dive a bit deeper into what your current workflow may look like below: 



If any of that resonates with you, I’m sure you’d agree that this is a labor-intensive and inefficient way of working.

A reliance on manual processes, spreadsheets and a lack of best practices means you will miss out on opportunities and achieve inconsistent results. 

We’re only human! Humans make mistakes. This is where technology comes in—technology like SourceWhale.
