Sales extensions: a powerful addition to your recruiting toolbox

According to the prediction made by Forbes, in 2018, recruitment professionals will be focusing on technology: how it can be used to find, connect, engage and even replace people — and what to do when that happens. Helping to find and connect with people from various business areas is what we do here at OxyLeads. Headhunters and recruiters from around the world use our technology to discover the best candidates and get their business email addresses.

In this blog post, we’re going to show you how to find the most skilled professionals using a dedicated browser extension.

Sifting through resumes and researching candidates on job websites is now a thing of the past. Social networks and automated messaging have made keeping in touch with potential candidates easier than ever before. At the same time, identifying and connecting with talents in specific business fields or positions can be much harder than a few years ago. For example, chief technology officers are in such high demand and receive so many inquiries on a daily basis that there is a big chance that your best candidate is simply absent from social media.

For many headhunters, the problem of finding the best talents boils down to one thing – the number of sources for headhunting. Online communities, forums, conference speaker lists, Quora answers, Linkedin groups – these are just a few ways how top recruiters find their best candidates. The new technology, such as OxyLeads Prospector, which is run by machine learning and intelligent data collection algorithms, gathers data from dozens of different sources and allows HR professionals to identify the right people and get their contacts in no time. Let’s take a look at the technology in action.

Finding a candidate’s email address with the OxyLeads Prospector extension

  • Add the free OxyLeads Prospector extension to your browser.
  • Go to your target’s company website and click on the extension icon.
  • Browse through the full company employee list to find a particular person or filter by keyword.
  • Click on “Show email” and instantly get your potential candidate’s business email address.

  2. Set up position skills and position title filters.
  3. Browse through the list to find the right people or narrow down the search with more keywords.
  4. Then, click on the “Get email” button and instantly get a business email address. You can also create a new list, add multiple people to it and download the full list of business emails later.
  5. To get the full list of business contacts, go to “My Lists” and open the one you need. Click on the “Get All Contacts” button.
  6. After all email addresses are generated, click on the “Export to CSV” button.

Using a browser extension, such as OxyLeads Prospector, can be a smart thing for many startups, where recruitment functions are the responsibility of the founder or CEO of the company. It saves time, costs and can be used not only to find the best candidates but also to build a steady sales pipeline. Check our previous blog post on this.

As a recruitment professional, you probably already know that headhunting helps to find candidates that are not currently in the job market. Of course, not all of them are interested in changing their status quo, but, in some cases, you can fill those vacancies that otherwise would be impossible to fill. A dedicated browser extension can become one of the essential tools in your sourcing and recruiting toolbox and make your life so much easier. Give it a try, sign up to OxyLeads Prospector and start for free.
