What sourcing tools do you use besides LinkedIn Recruiter?

Hi everyone,

I am a sourcer in an executive search firm that specializes in the tax industry, and I am new to the Boolean Strings Network community. I am reaching out to discover whether the other sourcers out there use anything besides LinkedIn Recruiter as their primary sourcing tool.

In my role, I almost exclusively use LinkedIn Recruiter to identify and evaluate candidates for our clients' searches. It appears to be the best sourcing tool on the market right now, in terms of the quantity of candidates concentrated on one platform and the ease with which I can evaluate and forward those candidates on to the recruiters at my company. With a few keywords and custom filters, I can have thousands of potential candidates at my fingertips. With a few clicks, I can marshal those candidates into project folders and present them for recruiter feedback. 

However, as in all relationships (both human and product-based), too much of one thing can blind you to what the rest of the world has to offer, and I am wondering if I am in danger of this happening with LinkedIn. 

So, fellow sourcers, am I right to plunge headlong into an exclusive relationship with LinkedIn, or are there bigger and better things out there? What sourcing tools (if any) do you use besides LinkedIn Recruiter?

Here is my list of sourcing tools: http://booleanstrings.com/tools/

Thanks, Irina! I greatly appreciate it.

I was specialized in Corporate Tax for many years.  Each state has their own CPA license list, California: http://www2.dca.ca.gov/pls/wllpub/wllqryna$lcev2.startup?p_qte_code=PA&p_qte_pgm_code=0300

Also, it is pretty easy buy Big Four lists and 2nd Tier. 

Good luck

Google
Github
Stackoverflow
twitter
Facebook

Thanks, Jody. I was unaware of the state CPA license lists, that is very helpful. Also I will look into buying the Big Four and 2nd tier lists.

And thanks for the suggestions, Aditi, I have not used github or stackoverflow yet.


Github and StackOverflow are best to source technical candidates and even you can judge their work at these sites.
i have written a blog about it
