    Many of you have read through the post Find (Almost) Anybodys Email Address by Rob Ousbey and use his technique. Rob has developed a Google Doc email permutator bit.ly/

    name2email to create a list of potential correct email addresses of a person. Rob suggests

    that after populating the list with the possible email addresses we use http://

    rapportive.com to verify which one is correct.

    For those who may need more than an occasional email guesswork: Here is how to do the

    same verification faster and, in some cases, more reliably, using #LinkedIn. The technique

    below is a variation of my 2010 post, that worked beautifully for almost four years, but is no

    longer working for those of us who got the new LinkedIn Contacts.

    The technique below is good for some other sourcing hacks besides the address guessing.

    Have a name and a company name?

    Step 1. Use the famous bit.ly/name2email tool to generate a list of possible email address-


    Step 2. Use this file: Outlook-Export-Format (download the csv file). Paste the list of emails

    from the Step 1 into the email column.

    Example. Suppose we want to find the correct address for Siobhan Neilland who works at

    Amazon. The Outlook-formatted file, which is the result of the steps 1 and 2, will look like this:

    Step 3. On the Contacts Settings Page on LinkedIn select the Outlook contacts import op-tion to import the saved file.

    This is it!

    Here is what you will see in this particular example in the Contacts MS Outlook-imported section, found among the Sources. The person number two on the list is the one.

    So here is the result: we

    have identified the email

    of the person in question. If

    you look at her profile, you

    will see this email listed

    now for us personally in the Contact Info section of the profile. (Finding her

    correct email wasnt such a hard task in this specific

    case, since she also lists

    the email address publicly

    on the profile.)

    As a side effect in this case we have found one

    more real person who is

    using another one of the

    generated email address-


    Apparently, the rest of the

    email addresses do not

    point to any LinkedIn


    Now if you are looking to verify the correct email addresses of several people, you can do this in only one step 2/step 3 action for all of them, just by pasting the emails in ques-tion to the end of the outlook export files email column. The file will get extra rows but will continue working just fine. You can accomplish all of the guesswork about many people in

    one shot.

    Further Applications of the Hack

    Here is a variation of quickly solving another sourcing task, using the import function as de-

    scribed above.

    You could use the technique in the steps 2-3 for a different sourcing task: verifying that for a

    given list of employees at a specific company everyone has email addresses following a

    specific pattern. In this scenario you may start with auto-creating a list of Emails instead of

    the email permutator.

    Theres another thing or two that can be done with this later.

    If the target professional population you are working with is typically registered on LinkedIn,

    then this method of locating their correct email address may find more up-to-date results

    than Rapportive. This is because Rapportive crawls social profiles and is behind compared with straight checking with LinkedIn, as I have explained in this post. In any event its quick and is worth trying.

    For those people who are not on LinkedIn but are on another network such as Google+,

    Rapportive may work better; the two approaches can be combined, of course.

    | Recruiting & Sourcing |

    Hunting for developers to hire is time consuming and rather difficult, if you dont know where to look.

    Normally, when recruiting, you might start your search on LinkedIn. But the problem is devel-

    opers dont use it regularly. With tight hiring deadlines and low developer activity on a go-to professional network, one question comes to mind: where are the developers?
