ClearbitWith so many Chrome extensions, how do you know which one to use? Well, it depends on what you are trying to do. As recruiters, we, often have to look for candidates with a particular title. Other times, we are searching for candidates from a competitor. If you ever find yourself in this situation, Clearbit Connect is a great tool to use.  Because Clearbit Connect  works in Gmail, it will allow you to verify email addresses within a particular domain as well as reveal additional social information.

Why I like Clearbit Connect:

  • Very simple to use.
  • Free.
  • You can verify emails with it, as well as know more about the people who email you from that company.
  • Allows you to search company domains for people and get their emails, and other social info.
  • Also has a Google Sheets add-on that does more as well as working in Blockspring for even more capabilities.
