We’re always excited when Dean pulls one of his own creations out of the bag, and today is no exception. He walks us through his custom-created “Sourcing Links” OSINT tool, which contains the holy grail of search capabilities to rev up your sourcing game a notch.

In this video, Dean shows you how to use his personal Sourcing Links OSINT tool, where you’ll find a powerful collection of search functions. This is a direct download from Google Drive, so you will have to request access from the maker himself.

Once inside, you’ll find:

  • Autofill options and a general search engine that utilizes a wide array of engines across the web
  • Search utilities for email addresses, social media profiles, phone numbers, etc.
  • Communities, locations, word lookups and so much more

All of this sits at your fingertips (in your browser) and is ready to save you time, energy and brainpower. Watch the 12-minute video, and let us know what you think!


Just in case you missed the RecruitingDaily debut of Dean’s Start.Me page (where you can also find a link to Dean’s “Sourcing Links” tool) check it out here.  He’ll walk you through how to use it, how it works, and what to expect from him on a daily basis, as well as how to create your own page.
