Facebook Sourcing 3.0

Sourcing on Facebook is not like sourcing on LinkedIn… you cannot run complex Boolean searches (with tens of synonyms in your string) and cannot find people via skills or competencies.

New & Free Boolean Builder (for those that don’t have LIR)

Here is the thing… if you don’t have LinkedIn Recruiter (LIR) you cannot really run regular Boolean queries on LinkedIn. Not even with a paid account. Well yeah… you can still x-ray LinkedIn on Google or by leveraging one of the x-raying tools like Recruit’em or SourceHub – but x-raying always seemed to me like

What Tinder, Grindr and Co can teach us about sourcing?

romantic fantasy with much love and some blood A good friend of mine, an exceptionally talented young sourcer, let’s call him Bobby Curaçao, is present on almost each and every dating site.

5 things I learnt while building #rsrsrc, one of the best sourcing centres in Europe

Something strange with #LinkedIn – Zakład optyczny and other fake companies

So I was recently playing around with LinkedIn’s country filter (mainly to help our Boolean friend simultaneously search within multiple EU countries) when I noticed something quite bizarre… I wanted to see which company had the most LinkedIn members in Poland (Hungary or Czech) so I used these location filters and went to ‘All companies’.
