Big Data – What it is and why you can ignore it.

 

Big Data has been talked about at length but what is it and how can it help recruiters? Unfortunately I fear, Big Data is another one of these technical terms that have been corrupted by sales people in an effort to confuse and further corrupted by the confused, of which there are very many.

Big Data is a technical term for data sets that are so complex that they create all sorts of problems for software engineers like myself. Luckily for me it is only a very small number of organizations that have to manage these unmanageable data sets and so for the rest of us the challenge remains that of doing something useful with all the ‘Small’ Data that we do have.

While I believe that Big Data is a buzz word that can happily be dismissed by the vast majority of recruiters, Big Data has changed the world and all of us indirectly use Big Data every day. For example, a simple Google search will access Googles index of  30 trillion web pages and return a result in a fraction of a second. This is amazing but now so common place that this principle use of Big Data is taken for granted. Hopefully the regular readers of my blog will know that there is more to Google Search than meets the eye and its use in Recruitment is very exciting. The excitement for me however is all about finding the needle rather than the size of the haystack.

If you are still in doubt about Big Data and it implications for recruiters I highly recommend a fantastic blog written by Glen Cathey a number of years ago but still very relevant. Big Data, Data Science and Moneyball Recruiting

Recruiting with Twitter

I really do think more recruiters should be using twitter. It is such a powerful tool to find and engage with Candidates.

Recruiters are, in my opinion, far too obsessed with CVs. When are we going to realize that this is not the only way to understand a candidate. In fact how often do you look at a CV and forget that there may actually be a living breathing person behind it, who probably has a whole lot more going on in their lives than the sound byte under hobbies and interests would even begin to suggest.

Perhaps it is because of this Resume obsession that Twitter is such an under utilized recruitment resource. Twitter is perhaps as far away from a CV as it is possible to get. Perhaps it is simply this reason that so many recruiters can’t seem to appreciate the joys of using twitter to recruit. It is worth noting that Recruiters use LinkedIn to find Candidates but it is Twitter that candidates will turn to to find a job.

Twitter should not be considered the end goal, rather Twitter is the channel through which Recruiters can find and engage with the talent communities they are interested in. With Twitter Sourcing, it is all about who knows who (Friends/Follows).

In my video I give a simple example of how one twitter profile can lead in all sorts of interesting and profitable directions and find potential candidates who who never be found through conventional CV searching techniques.

How to find anyone’s Contact Details

It is typically the case that a recruiter will find a good potential candidate on the internet but struggles to find any way of making direct contact with them. This is often the case when finding someone on LinkedIn where their contact details are not available.

In this video I talk about a number of different ways to make contact including how to message on LinkedIn for free, email validation and searching on Skype.

Changes to LinkedIn Public Profiles

Linkedin seem to be making changes to the Public Profiles. They have recently released paid for Premium profiles however it seems that for may profiles, free and paid for, there is now a new format being rolled out. This has implications for Recruiters who use Google x-ray search to find profiles as the information and format is changing.

The new format is more than just a stylistic change, it contains different information to the old format and is laid out differently with different labels. For example, with the old format the past employment details followed the word Past. With the new format the keyword has changed to Present.

It seems that this new format is being rolled out for the Premium profiles but also many other free profiles. I found this a few weeks ago and strangely some of the changed profiles I found then are now back to the old format.

I have not found any examples of Google caching the new format however. For many LinkedIn profiles, old and new, Google does not provide a link to its cached page, ie. the page that Google actually indexes. In circumstances where Google does links to this cache it appears that it is the old format that is available. I have seen this for both old and new style formats although given the short time this new format has been around it may simply be due to the Google having a old index of the page.

If anyone can explain more about what is happening here, I’d be interested to know more. If your public profile has changed, did you do anything to make this happen?

X-Ray Search

This weeks video in my Sourcing and Social Recruitment for Beginners series is all about X-Ray Search. This is the common name for using the site: operator in Google or Bing to search a specific site. This may sound a simple operator but it is massively powerful. In this video I explain what it is and how to use it. I give examples of x-ray searches to search LinkedIn and search Stackoverflow to find candidates.

If you like this video I woul be very grateful if you can share it on social media. Please press the button below to create a LinkedIn Update or share in on Twitter or appropriate LinkedIn groups.

Be found on LinkedIn

This is my second video in my beginners guide to sourcing and social recruitment. Today I’m talking about LinkedIn and how to make sure that your profile is found. LinkedIn is not just a place to find candidates, it can also be a fantastic place for Candidates or Clients to find your Linkedin Profile.

It still amazes me how some professional recruiters have very poor LinkedIn profiles with tiny numbers of connections. While I have often said that the recruitment industry is becoming too reliant on LinkedIn this is not an excuse to ignore it or pretend it is not important. When Candidates or Client search on LinkedIn or even on Google it is important that you can be found on LinkedIn. It takes just a little thought and effort to build a good LinkedIn profile and use it to great effect so for all those that need a few pointers to get the basics right I hope you’ll find my video useful. If you like this video please please share it 🙂

I’m planning more of these basic videos so please check back here in the next few days.
