Recently I heard about a great iPhone app to help schedule appointments / meetings / calls across multiple time zones. That got me to wondering what other cool recruiting tools are out there that I haven’t heard about, so I did a little research. I’m happy to say I’ve found 3 that I’m excited to share with you:
Miranda – As mentioned above, Miranda is an iPhone app that serves as a time zone converter, world clock, and meeting scheduler. I’ve been a diehard user of www.timeanddate.com but I’ve got to tell you, the visual interface of Miranda is clean, appealing, and super user-friendly. Spinning a wheel allows you to be extremely precise in your times, and if you turn your iPhone sideways, the app shows you an interactive world map. If you’re recruiting globally, you know how challenging it can be to schedule interviews or conference calls in two or more countries. Miranda makes it easier, and is a free download from the App store. Now, if they would just make it available for those of use who use Android…
Prophet – Prophet is an amazing extension for Chrome that uncovers email addresses, phone numbers, social media profiles and more. It uses an algorithm to predict a person’s most likely email address based on name, company, and other social data. After you install the Prophet extension, visit a person’s social profile – Twitter, for example, or LinkedIn – and Prophet will immediately show you that person’s other social profiles, blogs, websites, other email addresses and more. Even better, it’s free!
Facebook Search – Last week I blogged about using Facebook as a recruiting tool, even though it’s not always easy to find the people you’re looking for. Enter Facebook Search. Install this extension, log in to Facebook, open the extension and start adding your search criteria. You can download the search results as a CSV file as well. Search criteria include name, job, location, pages liked, languages, education, and more.
