The class provides a comprehensive guide to X-Ray searching, a term popularized in the early years of online recruitment. X-Ray searching refers to using the site: operator to refine your searches and quickly identify relevant data about target professionals. With the increasing decentralization of data, X-Ray search skills have become critical for identifying new sites and sources of information.
In addition to mastering the site: operator, you'll also learn how to identify common and specific elements within the pages of sites, such as URLs, page titles, or key phrases in the page's text. By searching for these elements in conjunction with the site: operator, you'll be able to conduct more precise searches and find suitable candidates more efficiently.
