A Review of Intelligence Search Chrome Extension (VIDEO)


Everyone is looking for ways to use social media effectively in a job search. Intelligence search is a Chrome extension to help you find people to network with on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.

I apologize for the music. I thought I had it minimized.

Summary

I wanted to do a review today of a product called, Intelligence Search. As you can see, is a chrome extension that I've added in that is the little icon there that you can see in the upper right on my screen. I have a number of extensions here, but I'm experimenting with this 1 and I like it.

Let's say you're looking for someone on Facebook, you click here and lo and behold it says, "Search Facebook." It also says search LinkedIn and search twitter and will examine that later. Let's say you're looking for people and I use myself as an example, I start by typing, "Jeff Altman." And, along the way, you will see it's starting to auto populate pretty quickly. You'll notice that it shows my business page. It also has individuals.

If I click on my name and search Facebook, it opens up a tab and offers a series of choices including me , of course. Obviously there's more than one Jeff Altman on Facebook if you are trying to find someone in particular, that you want to connect with, maybe you found them in a different venue, you have a sense of what they look like. See can narrow it down visually, you can you do that using this tool.

I want to come back to it for second. We can also search pages, groups... In groups. You can also search, "We are members work at." Let me use Google as an example. We can now search. We can now search groups of Google employees and see where they hang out that you can find them in if you happen to be doing recruiting.

Let's go back again to the extension, events, posts where there are references, let's say it's about, "Jeff Altman., The Big Game Hunter "let's see what turns up on this 1. I'm curious. It has some of the posts that I've done of different forms of content where I'm referenced.

Again, going back to the extension, you can be searching photos on Facebook, keywords on twitter, you can search LinkedIn by location or multiple locations. Notice that there is a OR search available.

This is a pretty accurate search tool.

There are lots of different ways to find individuals using this extension. You can use any number of different extensions to find people, but most are not that good on Facebook. This 1 I believe will be. Try experimenting with it. Tell me what you think of it.

Candidate.AI: A Great Free Job Search and Business Marketing Tool (VIDEO)


Today I review a new chrome extension for finding email addresses from LinkedIn that is currently the best I am seeing.

Summary

This is a video for job hunters and for you in business and, dare I say, for recruiters and sorcerers about a great product that follows and a wonderful tradition of chrome extensions that are free that provide terrific information about LinkedIn profiles, that minimize, if not eliminate the need for taking out a LinkedIn premium account.

The product is called candidate.AI. It is available through the website and http://candidate.ai. Right now, they say they are at capacity, but should be reopening very soon. It follows in a long tradition of chrome extensions that follows from, in days of old, Connectifier that advance to Prophet, and now I can say with certainty that this is the one I am most happy with.

It doesn't do anything radically different than the others do in that it provides you with email addresses (it doesn't instantly display them. You have to click a button). Big deal. It is an obvious button that says, "Find Email." It provides name, location, the social media sites the person resides on . . It does something that Entelo does which is suggest the likelihood that they will be open to changing jobs . (It hasn't AI formula that guesstimates the likelihood that they are open to changing jobs), provides the academic background the person has, gives you space to add some notes about them (I don't know if that is shared information. Let's assume that it is), there was a way to communicate with them to let them know of the inaccuracies (so far I haven't found inaccuracies which I think is where the cool things about them).

Their data is good. I always start with my own profile and the info about me is good except it does include an old email address to a message that about and have them remove. For you, search professionals, is a cool thing: it works with LinkedIn Recruiter which a lot of the other chrome extensions don't. Thus, you can save a bunch of your inMail or forget about Recruiter altogether, go over to the main site and collect emails from there; by the way, you can download information into Google sheets as a way where you can store data in your own account, rather than on LinkedIn.

Whether Microsoft is going to allow this to occur 2 years from now, who knows! For right now, this is the best tool that I am seeing on the market for getting information about job hunters .

A suggestion for you folks. Get phone numbers or access to phone numbers. That will be spectacular and doesn't the appear to be available currently.

If you are a job hunter and trying to save money on the cost of finding hiring managers and their email addresses, this is ideal for you. If you are in recruiter, the same thing is true. You get email addresses of hiring managers and organizations you want to tap into so you can message them directly outside the LinkedIn platform. They may not check LinkedIn for messages with any regularity.

Nice product. Accurate data. I like it a lot. Double thumbs up!

 

Do you really think employers are trying to help you?

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.

The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.

A Review of Glassdoor.com | No BS Job Search Advice Radio

Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter provides a review of Glassdoor.com and the services it provides.

glassdoor-logo

Summary

I’m here today with a review of glassdoor.com; I’m looking at the web-based version of the site, not the mobile version and I’m going to do a review of the website and the content it provides.

Like many sites, glassdoor.com carries job listings. That is certainly useful and there are a million places to get job listings from. This is a decent place to do it.  However, the place where I believe the site has its greatest value is in the employee reviews IF YOU LOOK AT THEM THROUGH THE CORRECT EYES.

Generally, there are 3 types of reviews here.  The 1st is the very disgruntled employee..  “This place is awful.  The management is terrible.”  In other words, all the complainers and whiners.  You have to look at those reviews and strip out the emotional tone to them. These are people who failed with the organization. That’s the way it is.  Is there a colonel in the air that is useful to you?  Is there something written there. That is confirmed by someone else?

Sometimes, they are reviews in there that seem like they were stacked by management.  I looked in a review for former employer of mine and it was almost a verbatim lien from what recruiting firms always say.  “You get what you put into it!”  Baloney.  You can look at some of the reviews that describe the firm as being perfect, idyllic and wonderful, management is spectacular… Throw them out. Don’t even bother.

Then there are reviews that are very textured and measured in what they say and they are not 2 lines of fluff or 2 lines of hatred.  Those are the perfect ones to read.

There is another feature that I think is very useful and that is the one where there are users who have provided insights into interviews and how firms conduct their interviews.  I took a look at 2 of my clients. There, in the reviews were pretty accurate.  Are they always going to be accurate?  No.  After all, for example, one hiring manager trying to hire a developer will ask different questions that another hiring manager trying to hire a developer.  But can you see a pattern?  What is the firm trying to evaluate and assess for?

There are many jobs for which no interview data is provided, but the ones that are may be very useful to you in your preparation for the interviews you’re going to go on.
