Technology that is enabling recruiters

To help you decide where to start we’ve chosen three of our top picks for 2018 that will enable you to get ahead of your competitors.

RecruiterFlow SQL Query Generator

If you’re a fan of the SocialTalent blog you RecruiterFlow will ring a bell. The team have been working on developing the ultimate tool to help you source developers. Their SQL Query Generator helps recruiters navigate Stackoverflow with ease and find the diamond candidate they’re looking for.

This tool takes a step away from boolean strings and helps recruiters get even more specific when searching for the perfect developer candidate.

Stack Overflow let users query their internal database in an SQL format that can give you specifically people who have written answers/asked questions for the skills you are searching for. However, SQL is not as easy as boolean and most of us recruiters and sources have been so obsessed with boolean that we have never even taken a second look at SQL based stack overflow database.

Boolean search ranks users based on their total inbound links(not a very good proxy for skill, or overall ranking) instead of the community points they have earned on a particular skill.
