Let’s meet with Meetup!!
, ,

Searching through Job-boards and LinkedIn! Bored? Let’s talk about some hidden facts and new tool to find candidates.I guess you people heard about Hidden Linkedin profiles? No, okay I will tell you what it is:

Sometimes you may experience that some profiles on LinkedIn comes which you never saw even after searching title wise. Well I have experienced so many times and have many examples with me.

You can experience the same through a Search site ”” : This is the site where you can find or create any groups related to any skills, from there you can look for  members on any particular group.

So for example – this is just one of the NYC groups related to the UX community >>>

Click on “all members” and you will see 192 – it can be time consuming cross referencing the names, but it’s worth it to me if I find two or three solid candidates

I agreed on the fact that this is bit time consuming but believe me it’s worth to try once.
