How to Find Candidates On Twitter...

Short post today, but very (VERY!) functional...

Topic - how to find candidates on Twitter using search engines, courtesy of super-sourcer Glen Cathey.  Glen recently did a rundown of the advantages of using Bing (the Microsoft search engine) over Google to source candidates via the web.  Go check out the full post here - it's golden.  Here's a tidbit from the post related to how to find candidates on Twitter using Bing:

"With Bing’s NEAR:x functionality, it is remarkably simple to X-Ray Twitter and target people in specific locations who mention specific titles and/or skill terms in their bios.

For example, let’s say you wanted to find Twitter profiles of user experience professionals who live in the New York area. You could run a search like this on Bing: bio near:15 UX location near:3 new york"

Play around with the string - it works like a charm...

If you recruit for a living, I'd subscribe to Glen immediately.  Glen and Kelly Dingee at Fistful of Talent are the gold standards when it comes to sharing digital sourcing advice on the web.
