6 Resources For Finding Cool Sourcing & Recruiting Tools

How I keep Up With and Find Tools

Many of you know my reputation for being the "Tool Guy." I'm always on the look out for new tools, or "toys," as I call them, for sourcing and recruiting. I'm often asked how - and where - I find the time to find these tools.  So how do I do it?  I'm about to explain some of the best resources I've found for staying on top of what's new and what's next.

One of the most important things I've done is pay close attention to several sites I've identified that do an outstanding job curating and sharing tips, tricks and tools.  Using FeedDemon, my prefered reader, I monitor the RSS feeds from these sites, which allows me to quickly and easily consume their content, ensuring that I don't miss out on any potentially valuable or emerging tools. 

You might be surprised that few of these are dedicated to recruiting or sourcing, but these 6 destinations have emerged as the most valuable resources for anyone looking for new tools for better finding, attracting and engaging top talent:

Search Engine Watch

These are the basic sites I monitor for new tools which may be coming, and while it's by no means an inclusive list, they should provide a great starting point for staying on top of new tools.  When I go beyond my reader and actively search for new tools, here are some of the key words which, in varying combinations, prove most effective for locating these resources:

Search, social, research, tool, engine, resume, candidate, people, find, finder, Boolean, string, semantic, detective and more. 

Finding tools means finding time to search for them - but a little effort goes a long way when it comes to identifying potential new tools for recruiting and sourcing success.  What sites do you use to find tools? I'm always on the look out, so feel free to add to this list and share your recommendations by leaving a comment in the box below.
