I just posted a reply to your question on the ERE forum.
I totally agree with Jessica on both points about Broadlook. It's a great tool but don't expect it to do any magic for you unless you get to a strong level of advanced web searching. That doesn't really mean having "the right" cheatsheets or samples; it means having mastered the search. (I have seen a number of sourcers unhappy about Diver because their expectations were to delegate their work to it.) One can learn this, of course, and become a search expert; and the key points (I think) are:
2) learning the correct web/DB syntax.
You know it depends, personally I don't like to put my sourcing into the hands of a tool/software, however, I do sourcing for a living and I'm a geek and not everyone is. I'm not familiar with the Talenthook tool so for me that's a write off....I have used both egrabber and broadlook tools. If you are a beginner-intermediate sourcer I would recommend egrabber (they also have a really good lead generation tool), if you're a intermediate-advanced sourcer I would recommend using the Broadlook suite. Once again, I'm just generalizing, Oh, and if you want to learn more about sourcing take an AIRS course or watch for Tooltime here on Recruitingblogs.com
Forget eGrabber. I paid $750 for it and it never worked. The company is totally disorganized and has the poorest customer service I have ever endured. Melody
