As a follow up to Sourcing Github For Technical Talent, I wanted to share a couple of Bookmarklets that I created to help reduce your daily keystrokes and browser tab changes.
Keep in mind that not everybody is on Github, not all information will be available and some may not use their real name, so results will vary.
Installation and usage instructions:
With your mouse/trackpad, drag the links below to your favorite browsers Bookmarks/Favorites toolbar.
To use, highlight the potential candidates first and last name listed on the web page where you identified them. (LinkedIn, Google, MeetUp, Web Based ATS Systems and so on..)
Once you’ve highlighted the name, simply click on the Bookmarklet in your bookmarks toolbar, a new tab will open where the search will be executed.
Bookmarklet – Github User Search
Once you’ve found the correct profile, highlight the “username” and use the following Bookmarklet. Once executed, search for the users email address via the search function in your browser by pressing Ctrl/Cmd + F and typing “email”
Bookmarklet – Github Email Search
And that’s it, I hope you find these tools useful and If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
