We have all heard of Boolean x-ray, but what does it mean?  It basically is a way to look at a site and see certain contents quickly and efficiently.

The basis of the x-ray format is simple.  Basically, you can use your browser and a few basic boolean terms

For example, site:about.me will let you see the site home page.  In order to get more specific, you can add keywords.

site:about.me developer Atlanta.   

This line of text in your browser will bring up developers that have an about me page that is based in Atlanta.  Here are more sites to use to find great people.

After each string, just put your skill or title requirements and hit enter. Some of these sites are for IT only and if you put accountant after the string, it will produce zero results because it is a site for IT people only.

You can also use it on your favorite social sites but make sure to retype these in your browser and not copy and paste.  Internet browsers do not like the word version of quotation marks with their curls vs. straight quotations. ( Use zoom to see what I am talking about):


site:twitter.com inurl:members “a public list”




site:facebook.com "program manager" (houston OR dallas OR "san antonio" OR "sugar land") (tx OR texas) inurl:about

I hope these sites help you find that special candidate.
