There are no shortages of clever ideas and techniques to help recruiters find candidates. Recently I've been looking at ways to help my recruitment agency customers use the internet for business development and source new clients and new vacancies. Ideally I'm looking for vacancies that no one else knows about to try and secure exclusive business or at least get a head start on the search.,
I ran the first of a new series of recruitment webinars earlier this week talking about a Google Custom Search I created that looks for LinkedIn profiles of people who have just changed jobs. There is nothing that special about yet another LinkedIn X-ray search but the joy of a Google Custom Search is that it makes the process so simple there is a much better change that the process can be incorporated into the business process as a routine task.
I've been working on other search techniques to integrate with the LinkedIn API although I've still got some way to go before I have something that offer real benefit to the masses.
