About RecruitEm

Drum roll... Version 3.0!

As promised we've been building the features you asked for:

  • An updated interface, hopefully you like it, if not you can switch back
  • By popular demand we've added Twitter, including the option to search it directly
  • Broken out XING für unsere Deutsch sprechenden Nutzer
  • Cleaned up the code so it loads much faster

If there are features you'd like to see in future versions tell us @CleverBiscuit.

The history

One fine summer's day, Maebellyne was working as a contractor at a recruitment agency trying to find suitable candidates on LinkedIn, but was hindered by LinkedIn's limit of one hundred results and only seeing 3rd degree contacts.

Being a 'digital native' (someone who doesn't get out much), she realised that Google already had tens of millions of LinkedIn profiles available for free. She immediately got to work building clever boolean queries to find her candidates, with great success.

This tool is a simple way to construct the very same boolean queries (and a few more), but with the benefit of a nice simple interface.

Who built it

RecruitEm (formerly RecruitIn before LinkedIn's lawyers rappelled through our windows) is a project by Clever Biscuit - a small but highly caffeinated development team dedicated to building online tools that help people. It's entirely free and anonymous and not in any way shape or form associated with LinkedIn, which is a registered trademark of the LinkedIn Corporation.
