Most recruiters use Boolean to find more candidates on LinkedIn and other “social” places but you can often find the same amount or more candidates by searching traditional job board CV/ Resumé databases using the same techniques.

In this webinar we walk you through the basics of Boolean Search for recruiters and then show you how to apply these search principles to find candidates in Monster, Jobsite (UK Job Board) and IrishJobs (Irish Job Board). Each database has slight variations on what search terms they support so we talk best practice and use a real live example to demonstrate their power
