sourcing MagicThere is not one Chrome Extension or add-on that can do everything. But if you combine extensions, you can create sourcing magic. In my latest video, I show you how to combine the following tools:

Facebook Search Guide from Airs:

This tool allows you to leverage the Facebook search graph to find candidates on Facebook easier.

Data Miner:

Data Miner is a Google Chrome extension that helps you scrape data from web pages and into a CSV file or Excel spreadsheet.


Blockspring simplifies the processes of accessing, aggregating, manipulating and processing the API data, thereby reducing central IT’s load.” “By building itself into Excel and Slack, it’s bringing the data to you, rather than you having to go out to the data.”


Hiretual is a Chrome Extension that shows you more information on candidates you find in LinkedIn. This tool is great. Especially if you have found a candidate in Linkedin and wanted to know more. Hiretual reveals things such as like compensation, likely fit, expertise, and relativeness.


Watch as I show you how to put all of these tools together in the video below. Let me know in the comments what tool combinations you like.
