  1. Simple answer : By keeping a list of product based companies handy and a recruiter needs to be an analyst , keep increasing that list every month. And include those companies in your filter.

    There are other ways to go about doing this, but its pretty detailed. You can join our regular Sourcing Master Class, to know the details ping yaswanth@recruitingmonk.com

  2. That’s an interesting question. If I was you, my approach will be as below:

    • I will still use LinkedIn as my source to look for candidates.
    • Since my invites are exhausted, I will use contact plugins or traditional ways of hunting contact details.

    Let me know if this holds good. I would love to hear out others perspectives as well.

  3. Different search engines work differently, for example some job boards / ATS will throw an error if you don’t have proper brackets.

    But LinkedIn, will interpret your 2nd search like this (Java AND Spring AND Hibernate) OR (Hibernet AND Multithreading)

  4. This comment was edited.
    • Learn basics of how AND, OR, ( ), ” ” are to be used.
    • Be more candidate centric & less JD centric
    • NOT is the superman of sourcing & the least used operator by Recruiters, see how you can embed it in your searches.

    Lastly, don’t search. But play with the search engine.
    Note: Look at this answer & also the attached document on this question. You’d get an idea of how sourcing models are built.
    You can join recruitingmonk’s sourcing workshop, for details check this link

  5. Is this one role? I mean, you’re expecting an engineering manager to everything under the shade of Tech?

    If yes, then i’m sorry you’ve to tell your hiring manager that you cant get spiderman + batman + other superheroes packaged in one.

  6. Yes, Google search is very effective & has its own advantages.

    For example, if you want to perform unlimited searches on linkedin data then you can opt for Google coz it is free.

    Secondly to find contact details across the web, search alumnis, communities etc etc.
