My Sourcecon Lab Presentation 2012 – in Dallas
Here’s what I covered in my 1st Presentation:
*I started off with www.similiarsites.com (shows you close/other great sites – helps you uncover additional targets or to sites which may lead you to discovering where more of that particular talent could be on. Personally I think its better than related:google as bottom section also contains websites that have similar keyword density)
*Plugged in www.conferencehound.com (which shows you conferences from all over the world)
*Another great tool I use to help me reach out is www.argali.com (Free download, ad supported, limited to 10 searches a month) – to find those hidden offices of companies not listed listed on their Contact Us/Offices page of companies. I’ve found those small engineering offices to those presales/field sales solo folks.
*Try out/Use www.zoominfo.com and leverage the Free community edition within zoominfo to tap leads. Additionally zoominfo is a great tool to help you find info about a company to also finding similar companies.
*I have a phone cheat sheet available in which I show you how to get into the Dial-by-name system of any phone system; Email me at email@example.com and put “Phone Sourcing Cheat Sheet Please” in the subject line.
*How about some free resume boards:
www.jobvertise.com (over 1M resumes, Free, but limited to about 40 resumes a day)
www.gigumes.com/search (over 300k free resumes)
*Find Email Formats with http://email-format.com and https://sites.google.com/site/emails4corporations/index
*You can Test Emails with typical email patterns with:
www.linkedin.com/addContacts [Didn’t cover, but great additional tool to uncover email they used to register their LI profile with]
