There are many parallel universes, and we’re lucky enough to live in one where the great Dean Da Costa resides. Today’s nugget of wisdom might just be his 9th symphony: Dean’s very own Google Xray search tool.  If you’ve ever wanted an easy way to blast through all sorts of Google X-ray searches with just a few clicks, then listen in! It’s advanced, user friendly, and we’re pretty sure its gluten free too.

He uses this Bad Larry himself, and updates its functionality regularly. On occasion he graces us with an opportunity to download his advanced version for free. He typically does this every few months, and we have an insider tip that he’ll be giving away his next Pro version at our September HRTX event. It’s free to register and attend, and besides Dean we have 55 other amazing presenters to showcase their sourcing and recruiting knowledge!
