An example is using semantic searches on LinkedIn, Google, Bing, etc. such as looking for profiles with keyword phrases such as “I just graduated from…” or “I am a senior at….” She also recommends looking at the schools attended by your employees — especially the top performers — to see whether the schools you’re targeting are the best for your organization.
