How to source for Attendees Lists!!


Attendee’s lists can be a huge boon for Recruiters/Sourcers as the let you know everyone who attended a given conference or event. However most recruiters don’t think about finding them because they are not sure how. Simply reach into your bag of tricks and pull out an old tried and true tool, a simple xray search with some extras, and a whole lot of website searching


So to source for Attendee’s lists you simply need to use a skill known as xraying, like the one below. Please keep in mind I write these with the idea they can be used with multiple search engines. So whiel the Boolean may not be perfect for Google it is for other search engines, and does not impact the results.


(intitle:*.attendee.list OR inurl:*.attendee.list OR insubject:*.attendee.list) AWS


If you run the strings above in google you will get the results below.


Now of course this is generic so simply add what you are searching for to the string.

If we click on the one that says 2019 Attendee List – AWS

There are 8 pages worth of potential candidates there. Now you engage your “Social Detective” skills and let the magic happen.
