For the obvious reason, recruiters do not want to see profiles of people who have been employed for less than a year at the current company. The X-Ray technique I describe below allows you to:
- Narrow down to longer-term employees
- Search better for #opentowork
- Narrow to location
- Search within the Headline
- Search for a keyword within the current job description
- Search by school and years of graduation.
Once you follow the steps, you may not need the expensive Recruiter or Sales Navigator subscription! This is free and unlimited.
Here is the idea: if you scrape fields of interest, such as the length of employment, from each result and export that, you can filter out those who:
- recently started working at a new employer
- liked someone’s #opentowork status or one of “people also viewed” had it on the profile
- have worked at the location but live elsewhere
- filter by the headline
- scrape the last job description and filter by it
- scrape school name(s) and filter by it
- same with the school dates.
As always, be careful when scraping.
As many times before, there is nothing new in the hack, except you now have a choice of five intelligent scraping tools that do not require coding and facilitate deep filtered search.
Who does not like hacks like this? (Please comment.)
With that, I am happy to let you know that the Second Online Sourcing Day is happening on September 17th, 2020, and you are invited!
If you cannot wait, here is six hours of our material from May, 2020.
This is easily the best ROI on content vs. investment if you want to stay competitive in sourcing.
