Motivating recruiters to source outside of LinkedIn is topic managers often bring up when signing up their teams for training. Yesterday, I spoke with a potential client, a thriving agency manager whose recruiters “won’t step outside of LinkedIn.” “How do I motivate them?” The conversation has prompted me to write my thoughts down. Sourcing is not Rocket Science, but it …

Due to the last few months’ global events, diversity hiring and diversity recruiting training are the two topics getting a lot – if not most – Social Media attention within our industry.

I admire the evolving technology of Google Custom Search Engines (CSEs). By guessing some clever terms and operator combinations, over time, we have been able to un-dig (for example) loads of contact lists of passive candidates within every industry we get sourcing requests in.

I have run across Boolean Cookies (the ones you eat). Going to order some! Discoveries await you if you study Google Custom Search Engines. Very interestingly, as I have determined bases on tests, Custom Search Engine more: operators support a different order of Boolean operators compared to Google.
