Dux-Soup – my initial thoughts
I have just signed up to Dux Soup to give it a go and at the moment, i would have to say that it seems like it is a good tool.
This article was initially written in November 2018. Since then I stopped using it in December 2018 and have started reusing it again in November 2019.
So this is initial thoughts, that have aged over the last year.
I feel that it is a really good bit of software that almost all recruiters should use on a daily basis.
First time around, i found that i did not like the software, however, over the last year the software has really improved and it has become a useful tool.
LinkedIn is now very savvy regarding the use of tools like dux-Soup. Which is a real shame. However, i have started to use dux-Soup in a way that is closer to a person using it and only at a very small scale as well. This keeps me under the radar.
Essentially i use it to micro-target potential candidates for specific roles. Why? Because looks more human and mirror is what i would be doing anyway.
Basically I use it to automate a small part of my job.
If you go online you will find all sorts of different weird and wacky ways that you can use the software. However, this is how I use it.
If you use dux-Soup i would be really happy to hear how you use it.
