During your headhunting adventures, you may come across an interesting individual that checks all your boxes. But no matter how much you try, you just can’t find any way to contact them.  Have no fear, because Reverse Image Search by Google is here to help your headhunt. 

Reverse image searching can save the day by matching that person’s photo to every other picture on the internet and returning the most relevant results back to you. 

Since there are so many tools that can help you do this, we’ve tested many of them and hand-picked the most noteworthy options for you: 

  • Search Engines. Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and just about every other popular search engine supports reverse image searching. You can either upload a copy of the prospect’s photo or paste a link to it. 
  • PimEyes. While the primary audience for this tool is individuals who want to track their photos online, it gets the job done for recruiters too. You can easily find online profiles of a prospect using nothing more than a digital representation of their face. 
  • Image Raider. This is another worthy addition to the arsenal of any headhunter. It gives you the option to either paste a URL or upload an image to get started. 

It’s also worth noting that reverse imaging tools don’t exactly have a stellar record of finding images. It’s a miss or hit process, but when you’ve exhausted every other option, it never hurts to give these tools a chance.
