Sourcing without Boolean

For many Sourcers and Recruiters advanced Boolean searching is hard, takes too much time, or does not produce the desired results.

Want to get on the phone with potential candidates fast? This class teaches more than a dozen easy to use "plain English" search patterns, which do not require advanced search skills yet produce excellent results.

Major search engines, including Google, have become semantic-oriented, meaning - they “tune in” to the intent of the person who searches. In many practical cases, Google is now more responsive to searching “in English”, without advanced operators, than when using complex Boolean constructions. That’s great news!

Like writing poetry or tweeting, searching without operators allows us to be creative and make discoveries.

We demonstrate finding "hidden" professionals, locating and exploring previously unknown sites full of candidate details, by searching in plain English.

Equipped with the search patterns, you will be able to put your new skills to work as soon as the class ends.
