Some of the best recruiting tools were not created for recruiters at all.  ZenProspect is built for sales professionals, yet it is a must have for recruiters who use Gmail.  It is a free Chrome extension that turns your Gmail into a CRM, a contact aggregator, and email tracker. It is unbelievable powerful for a free tool. And it will be 100% free forever. My favorite feature is being able to prospect for leads straight from Gmail. Don’t take my word for it, watch the video below to see how Dean Da Costa uses ZenProspect with a little help from Editor Joel Cheesman.
