Breaking the Vault: Sourcing Tools and Techniques to Unlock Candidate Information

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


In this session, the speaker will provide resources to identify additional candidate pipelines through site searches, association sites, publications and customization tools like CSEs. However, that’s not the only secret in the vault! We’ll also dive into URL Sourcing, listservs, Data Miner, and ways to “unlock” profile sites through manipulation of Boolean Syntax.

What to Expect
Expect searches outside the normal avenues and extensions (like Linkedin and Indeed). Association sites and certifications can be doors to the data, we’ll go over several methods to “pick the lock.” Although some extensions may be mentioned, this session taps into alternative resources that aren’t floating on the surface.

Who should attend
If you are interested in a list of tools or ways to search for new resources, this will be the ideal session for you. Some Boolean knowledge may be helpful, but not a requirement.
