Infographics

http://www.easel.ly/ – Great infographics online software that allows you to produce interesting content in more visual way

www.infogr.am – allows you to input information or data and build your own infogram.   It’s a basic version, but if you’re trying to display information in a different way either internally – maybe for a referral recruitment campaign or externally then it’s provides a bit of a change.

As and when I find great recruitment tools, I’ll share then with you here!

LinkedIn searching

Recruitem.net ~ if you’ve been shown boolean searching before through Google, but just can’t get the hang of building search strings, then this is your new best friend.  Recruitem allows you to just put in the search key words that you’re looking for, it’ll build the search string for you and then allow you to open it up in Google with all the results – easy!!
