Title Search can be a waste!!

So a lot of sourcers still like to search by title. I mean the full title as listed on their job descriptions (JD). The only problem with this is there are a lot of different titles that can be used for the same job. For example you need a developer. You JD say Sr. Developer. That’s great but I have seen several titles that are used that would find you people with the skills you want. For example; Software  Engineer, Software Programmer, Principle, etc. If you search on Sr. Developer you are going to miss out on a lot of people. Not to mention the term Senior means different things to different companies. So my suggestion is to not focus so much on titles, but instead on the required skills, you will find you will get the results you want, without limiting and missing out on possible candidates you would lose out on doing a title search.
