✨ A timeless thought
💯 Tips & hacks of the week
⚡️ Find personal emails of developers from their Github profile
Find any GitHub commit of the developer you are interested in. Click the commit name to open the commit page and do the following:
Add .PATCH to the end of the page address in the address bar.
Search (Ctrl+F) “@”
Get the developer’s email
✨ X-Ray search personal website of developers
Use this X-Ray string to find CVs posted on the personal websites by position and location. The below search is to find frontend/UI developers based out of India.
site:.me (intitle:CV OR intitle:resume OR inurl:CV OR inurl:resume) (“front end developer” OR "ui developer") “India”
Here’s another great tip from Tris Revill. Some developers don’t necessarily use a .me domain address to create their personal websites. You can use the below x-ray search to find more websites that are hosted in other domains.
(intitle:CV OR intitle:resume OR inurl:CV OR inurl:resume) "(“front end"|ui) developer" India -example -job
Here are a few things that I've been reading this week:

🚀 Recruitment tool/plugin of the week
Every week I recommend one plugin, tool, or product that can help recruiters become better at work:
Every recruiter hits a point in their career where they go, “I love how I can search millions of people on LinkedIn. But there has to be a better way!”
🎉 Free Simple People Search Tool is the answer. It’s simple. It’s fast. And it’s absolutely free. In short, if you want to x-ray search profiles on social media but don’t want to pay a hefty premium for the official search tools, you’re going to love this.
