In LinkedIn We Trust? (for Passive Candidate Sourcing)

A presentation at Sourcing 7 Fall Shareback on November 20, 2014 at Amazon in Seattle. This is a case study to compare the results of LinkedIn native search and Google x-ray search.

We use a Web Developer position in Chicago as an example. The keywords in the Boolean string include Ruby, Rails, Sinatra, TDD (test driven development), and BDD (behavior driven development). We want to look for local Chicago candidates.

We learn how to improve our Boolean search string and when to use either Google x-ray or LinkedIn search.
