Well – No “Wave”, no “Buzz” but “Plus” seems to be way to go!!
After two failed attempts, Google has a promising product – something I can use. What’s the selling point for me? I couldn’t figure out how to use Facebook categories to slice-n-dice my friends list. Google+ definitely did the trick very nicely. Especially can think of Friends, Co-workers, and Other Friends as being a necessity for me to share more freely. Then was thinking its pretty secure until I found out about how to use it for recruiting!!
Google+ for Recruiting is simple:
Put the filters to search by occupation (Software Developers, Architects, Software Designers et. al). Supposedly 20% of everyone on Plus currently are Techies. For example, http://findpeopleonplus.com/Country-United-States/Occupation-Computer-Scientist is one such URL
Search the profiles, use keywords if necessary (fewer keywords) to narrow down the profiles
Best of all, it allows you to email them pretty easily from the Profile pages. Neat!!
Heck with security and privacy, it seems to help Pragna and its customers definitely :-).
