Recreating the Wheel, Why?
How many staffing professionals, recruiters, and sourcers, create their own Boolean strings? Answer most of us. However how many copy those strings down and keep them in a file of some kind for use later? Answer not many. Why? Why do we feel the need to reinvent the wheel, recreate the search strings over and over again, when we can simply copy them to a spread sheet for use later. Moreover we can keep a tack of the results from a particular string, and then we know what worked and what did not. It sounds simple, sounds like common sense, but I bet few do it and the time they waste recreating the wheel is mind boggling and a huge hit on productivity. So stop recreating the wheel keep track. I have spread sheets showing every string I have every created. I have even shared allot of them with all of you in other posts. The time I have saved has been immense and the increase in productivity is mind blowing so stop recreating the wheel.
