HEALTHCARE SOURCING TOOLBOX
Resources for Finding Talent in the Healthcare Industry
Keep Learning, Keep Building, Never Stop Thinking!
Healthcare Recruiters and Sourcers, I've built this additional Tools site focused in Healthcare Resources and Databases to target Clinical, Nursing, Doctors, Dentists, and Researchers in the healthcare industry. The information is out there, and I hope this helps you find it. I'm always open to adding content, so let me know if something works for you and I'll add it to the inventory!
Note: Many of these tools work best on Google Chrome, since many extensions listed are focused on that Web Browser.
THE ULTIMATE COMBO (OF TOOLS)
This short list are my personal favorite combination of tools, extensions, and searching technology. The key is putting this all together in an innovative way.
Hiretual does a bit of everything. Boolean building, data scraping, pulling information into a pipeline, and even cross referencing. Like the mind of a Sourcer, this tool is always expanding and adding new features.
Search-Preview gives you a quick "preview" of a link when you hover in a google search. Autopagerize pulls your results automatically when you scroll down the list of results in a Google search. Paired together, this can make a Sourcer super productive especially when using the next set of tools in the Combo (see below).
Dataminer and the new Recipe Creator are by far my favorite set of tools right now. Now only can you pull data into spreadsheets with DataMiner, the team has even created the Recipe Creator to help us non-programmers. Both have a bit of a learning curve, but thanks to some of the tutorials Dataminer has released, as well as Dean Da Costa's youtube videos, we have a way to get past it!
DOCTORS AND DENTISTS
Below are a listing of sites to find Doctors and Dentists, as well as some other lesser known ways to target this group.
Indeed is a good source to start with. They have a free resume search and user friendly filters you can use to tailor your search results. They have a large volume of nurses as well, so you start here to "check the market" prior to diving into alternative pipeling tools.
Below are sites to find Scientists and Researchers. Publication Sites and Patent Sites are a huge resource for this group!
I’ve found publications sites like Google Scholar EXTREMELY helpful when looking for research and science candidates. Often times, the titles of articles can tell you more than a linkedin job title. So, for example, if I were looking for a medicinal chemist with experience with “small molecules” and “drug discovery," the articles can give MUCH better insight.
Free Patents Online is another way to find scientists or researchers, or someone of a very technical nature. The search functionality involves a bit of a learning curve, but you can use some of this syntax to search by location.
Add Keywords and use the acronyms:
IC = Inventor City
AC = Assignee City
