We’re at it again with another deep dive into Dean Da Costa’s all-in-one Sourcing tool.  Each training is self-contained, so you’re welcome to jump in on any video. Before you get started, we recommend you download Dean’s free sourcing tool. Follow along with him while he teaches you the ins and outs of this fantastic tool. It was made by the best sourcer, for the best sourcers.

In this particular video, Dean will be going through a few sections of his free sourcing tool. The focus will be on Databases, Sites & Tools, Word Lookup, Salary Info, and Work Email Lookup.

He has links to quite a few interesting databases: FEC government employees, Microsoft employees, college alumni, and more.

We hope you get as much out of Dean’s tech as we have!

Pro Version? Isn’t this a free sourcing tool?

So, Dean likes to be a big ole tease when it comes to his advanced version of the tool. It’s not a paid resource, and we doubt you could even get it from him by throwing bills in his face. He only offers the more complex version every 3 or 4 months at various live events he attends.

He updates and adds to this pro tool, so every public release has new features.  The next release window will be hosted by RecruitingDaily, coincidentally!  Our virtual September 28-29th #HRTX event has a segment dedicated for Dean called Hacking Tech Talent.  Definitely check it out if you’re enjoying his tool but want more out of it!

We recommend starting with the free version, however. The pro version has so many additional options that if you aren’t familiar with how Dean’s tool works, you might just get a little lost in the sauce. It’s an overwhelming amount of extra options that might intimidate someone who just wants to use it for simple searches. But just like with a wild black stallion, once you tame this tool you’re basically the coolest person ever.
