Sourcing News and Tips
The end of a year is a good time for reflection and predictions. In the spirit of the season, and reflections, we present “12 Months of Sourcing” from the Boolean Strings blog:
  1. January - Least Understood Google Operator (understanding inanchor:/allinanchor:)
  2. February - LinkedIn Recruiter: Not WYSIWYG (why your results may not match your expectations)
  3. March - Facebook Graph Search – New Tips (reviewing Who Posted What, a tool for searching Facebook posts by date, topic and user)
  4. April - Google’s Numrange is Broken (sad to say, this is still the case eight months later, though there are rumors of a fix in the works)
  5. May - How to Find the Twitter ID from an Email Address (“search” by email address for Twitter users, made easy)
  6. June - New Email Extractor/Collector (announcing our free tool to collect email addresses as you browse; check it out in the Chrome Store)
  7. July - How to View Resumes with Names on Indeed for Free (Indeed hid the names for most resumes from users of the free resume search in early 2018, here’s how to reveal some of them)
  8. August - LinkedIn Groups Upcoming Decline (a prediction that sadly came true in short order; RIP LinkedIn Groups!)
  9. September - LinkedIn Job Search Flaw and a Fix (LinkedIn did fix this one eventually, but there’s still a good lesson about looking at pages from multiple points of view)
  10. October - Find Phone Numbers by Googling for ☎, ☏, or ✆ (Google has started indexing emoji and other extended unicode characters)
  11. November - X-Raying Bloomberg for Executives (take advantage of Bloomberg’s trove of executive bios; who says news sites can’t learn old tricks?)
  12. December - LinkedIn Operators: One More and a Tip Sheet (the culmination of a series of articles documenting LinkedIn’s previously unknown search operators)
Happy Holidays from the Sourcing Certifications team! Whether you’re enjoying a day off, or making your way into the office today, we hope this week’s newsletter can provide a bit of cheer.
