Search technique using E-mail domains

Domain Name Search:

An easy way to find people on the Internet is by searching with 'the domain part' of the of the e-mail address of the company. It is a proven success for gathering lump sum names from large companies who provide their employees an email ID with the company name extension in it.

Examples:

E-mail ID <---------------------------------------------> Key Word to Google

Mbtyler @us.ibm.com <------------------->"@us.ibm.com" +"sales manager"

Andrew @airproducts.com <----------->"@airproducts.com" +"sales rep" +(Texas OR TX)

Andy.bloch @hp.com <--------->"@hp.com" +"area manager" +(California OR CA)

CTC Search [Excel Search]

Just like that names:

Getting names from the deep web isn't that difficult. Here is another strategy that could come handy when you feel a bit bored with yours.

Let us consider that we need to identify "Quality Managers". You would have already worked on a search for months together and may even start thinking that you are running out of names or the search has reached saturation. Try this method in your search and see the difference that it brings ...

We call this searh as CTC [Candidate Tracking Chart] search OR Excel /XLS search
1. Gather all the alternate titles for the search. The more you have the alternate titles the more will be your results.
[here in this example I use the keys "quality manager" and "quality controller"]
2. Let us assume that we need candidates from California area
3. Formulate a keyword like this: [Note the special search operators like filetype:XLS]
("Quality manager" OR "quality controller") +(California OR CA) +(name OR phone OR mail OR contat OR zip OR address) filetype:xls
4. Use the above keywords in various searchengines. Your search will yield only MS Excel file search results that normally will range from 4 results to 900 results.
5. If you still see unnecessary files piled up on the results page you may wish to add the following keywords to filter your search:
+(attendees OR participants OR registrants OR members OR list OR directory OR "source book")
[these keywords are most powerful when used with the "inurl:" and "intitle:" operators]

Wish you all success.

Cold Calling!

Not to read aloud


Usage of inappropriate Nicknames may lead to worse consequences. I had one such experience in the past that made me alert the team on appropriate use of 'Alias/Nickname'. Remember this is not Eddie... before you proceed to ...

Eddie, I'm not sure from where you got my name, maybe our website, in any case I would have expected you to have undertaken a modicum of research prior to reaching out to me -my name is not Eliza its Elizabeth (annoying isn't it when people don't take the time to get it right!) and the position I currently hold is quite a bit more senior than the position for which you are trying to recruit.

Never-the-less, thank you for your interest in me however I wish to stay in the travel industry and do not see my future in IT

ALIAS/NICKNAMES

Alias / Nicknames


Let us learn some personal nicknames. Learning them is proved to be useful for sourcing. Also known as pet name, shortened name, truncated name, alternate name, name derivative, associated name, hypocoristic form of a name, diminutized name, or diminuted name. Sometimes related to "alias."

LinkedIn Vs Doostang

LinkedIn Vs Doostang
Doostang and Linkedin are both easy to use and each one has its unique feature that could benefit recruiters. Doostang unlike linkedin allows an user to view the entire network that it has. [Linkedin provides access to only the people connected to you and upto3rd degree]. You can send and receive invitations/mails with attachments easlily via Doostang. There is enough room for growth in Doostang if you aspire to be a top networker whereas Linkedin is almost dominated by many toppers already. Linkedin allows every user to send about 3000 invitations only and then wehave to request every time to increase it by 100 to 500 [you can make a request once in 30 days].

Using MySpace.com as a Recruiting Tool

Outside-the-Box Recruiting

Great article on some of the newest tools for students to connect with each other and, therefore, for employers to connect with students. A word of caution though: students view their entries in FaceBook and MySpace as being personal. Employers who troll these sites for background checking purposes or even for recruitment purposes may run afoul of the terms of service for these sites and also risk the very public wrath of a very well connected generation. My advise: don't use these sites for negative purposes such as background checks and if you're representing the military or other such controversial employer, be careful. In fact, be very careful. Connecting with students who have posted their resumes on-line at job boards or non-password protected sites is one thing. Connecting with students who have posted their profile at social networking sites is risky at best.

Cold-Calling

The number one enemy of recruiters are assumptions:

If I assume that the next sales rep that I call will be smug, then I will probably miss out on a hire. (I have been recruiting sales reps for long and have never made that generalization).
If I assume that the next candidate I source off of the internet has already been called by twenty other recruiters and don't call them then I miss out on another opportunity.
When assumptions stand in the way of you sourcing it can lead to inactivity.
This is a personal business. "The people who are successful talk to a lot of people each day and establish rapport with most. "

My New Blog
7th April 2006
This is my new blog. I will be writing about free knowledge, free culture, free software, tips & tricks, and related topics. I will avoid political issues outside that arena, I promise. (You may yell at me if I don’t.)
