How to source on the lesser known sites!! Stack Exchange

 

Stack Exchange is  a network of question-and-answer websites on topics in varied fields, each site covering a specific topic, where questions, answers, and users are subject to a reputation award process.  Not a lot of recruiters try to source there. The reason is simple they do not know how. Well to do this without worry you need go no further than into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, called x-raying.

 

So to source within Stack exchange you simply need to create an x-ray string, like the one below.

 

site:contributors.gitlab.com/contributors java

 

If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.

 

site:stackexchange.com/users java

If you need more info on X-raying see my blog post http://www.recruitingblogs.com/profiles/blogs/seeing-what-is-really...
