Prophet II with the “extra special” Konami expert mode
HiringSolved released Prophet II and Prophet Pro July 2019, with some pretty amazing new updates to their search. Prophet II now utilizes a powerful AI-powered search interface, enabling searches across millions of open web profiles. Use it to search and identify qualified leads by skillset, location, job titles, previous employers, and more. Search for leads across social profiles like About.me, Facebook, Behance, Reddit, GitHub, StackExchange, even Tumblr, and Instagram. Easily export your results to utilize in any system. Pretty cool, right?
What you may not already know is that this incredibly useful tool contains a hidden expert mode. Cheat code time!
Old school gamers that remember Contra will know this code already. It’s called the Konami Code, and using it within Prophet II has a surprising result. It unlocks an “Expert” search function that enables the use of boolean searches. If you’re not familiar with it, here’s how it works.
Open Prophet II, and using your keyboard, type this key combination: Arrow Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A.
You’ve now unlocked Expert Mode! The color scheme will go dark and you will now see an additional tab for Expert search. You can still use the regular Smart searches, but the boolean search will get you even better results! Use the expert mode hints for formatting tips or create your own. Your search results come from all over the web and the best part is that this is outside of the LinkedIn network that you’ve probably already exhausted. From here, find email addresses for your lead results, save into folders, download folders, whatever you want.
That cheat code used to guarantee you a victory, and used within Prophet II, it guarantees access to a whole lot of people! We really like this tool, and it’s always great to find recruiting tools that aren’t LinkedIn reliant. Plus, with 100 free contacts per month, you really can’t go wrong. Depending on your reply rates, you could easily turn those into at least one hire per month, maybe even two!
