Search Engines, Sourcing Spell Book, Sourcing Tools | 0 comments

Sourcing Hat now has a YouTube channel. This is the first video in my Google Search Tips for Recruiters series.

Here we look at Google’s search tools. It’s essential to know about the Tools menu if you regularly source on Google.

Google’s Tools menu can help you filter your results by location, age/time, as well as get a more accurate interpretation of your search string.


We covered Google search by country or region, filtering our results by date, and using Google’s verbatim option to give us better results for our complex search queries.

Please subscribe to Sourcing Hat on YouTube. Remember to click the bell icon to be notified whenever there’s a new video.

If you have a Google search tip you’d like to share, please put it in the comments. The same goes if you have a question, pop it in the comments below and I’ll do my very best to find an answer.

If I can help you or your team develop your sourcing skills via online mentoring, please do get in touch.
