Will I have enough Time? What will I Learn?
If you can fit an hour a day inbetween the interviews, meetings and phone calls, then you can do this. You can learn about reasoning behind search string construction, when to use certain words, how to create variations for your searches, and how to incorporate natural language into your Boolean strings. We're talking about doing things like:
- Quick and easy hits for sourcing - You don't need complex search strings to capture candidate profiles. Profiles have just enough information on them for you to search what you need: (inurl:profile OR intitle:profile OR "about me") ("software engineer" OR programmer OR developer) (cloud OR saas OR aws OR ec2 OR rackspace) (ca OR california OR "san jose" OR "san francisco" OR "bay area") (bscs OR mscs OR "computer science" OR msee OR bsee OR "electrical engineering") -jobs -careers
- Natural Boolean - Not only can natural language be used in a search, but it can also be paired very nicely with Boolean. Take a look at run-of-the-mill searches with titles like ("software engineer" OR programmer OR developer) and compare them with searches like ("developed" OR "designed" OR "architected" OR "programmed"). The quotes around single words in Google will force the search engine to not word-stem the keywords. Sometimes this is a good thing.
- Manipulate social network pages - How hard is it to source from pages like Google+? Very easy actually. You just need to know how much information is on the page. Titles, names, location and companies. Here's one string for a UX Engineer that's run in Google: site:plus.google.com ("male" OR "female") (ux OR ue OR "user experience" OR usability OR uxa OR
"interaction design" OR "information architect") (designer OR design OR engineer) ("san francisco" OR "san jose" OR
"palo alto" OR "mountain view" OR cupertino) -inurl:app -inurl:photos -inurl:posts
You will learn all about these search concepts and a whole lot more! Sign up today to take this action-packed webinar.
