Boolean Power Search #2: Lists and Associations

Boolean SearchKnowing Boolean language is pretty much required for all recruiters.  This series was built to help you make sure that your Boolean game is solid.

What is Boolean?

The Boolean language, AKA Boolean logic helps you to create very specific searches using  the Boolean has three so-called operators (commands to our search engine) – AND, OR and NOT.

No matter what positions you are recruiting for, the odds are pretty good that there is an association or organization affiliated with it. By using the Lists and Association Boolean search, we are looking for public lists online that will give us information to use to find members, registrants or attendees.

There is a caveat, I am not endorsing nor suggesting that you use the lists you find to send  an email blast.  That is a good way of losing potential candidates or customers.  what I do suggest is that you use the lists that you find to dig down to find people who take their employment so serious that they have decided to take their career to a higher level. Watch this video to get detailed information on how to build a search that will help you search lists and associations.
