24 Google Chrome Extensions for Recruiters & Sourcers


Sourcing candidates and outreach are painstaking and time-consuming. But if you leverage the right tools, things will go much better and faster.

We picked the best Chrome extensions to help simplify your sourcing and recruiting experience, save time, top up your worksheet list with the best-match candidates, and effectively reach them out.

Let’s get started!

The Variety of Chrome Extensions for Sourcers and Recruiters: Quick Overview

The variety of Chrome extensions for candidate sourcing and recruitment is significant. Some are standalone tools that work only as extensions and don’t have cloud-based versions. Others are inseparable parts of sourcing and recruitment platforms.

When it comes to functionality, we can split extensions into several groups:

  • Extensions for candidate search and outreach. In most cases, these are universal tools for lead generation that can be used in marketing, sales, and recruitment. They have a lot of features, from LinkedIn scraping to building follow-up sequences and tracking leads.
  • Extensions for data scraping. These extensions are developed primarily for extracting prospects’ data from different sources, from LinkedIn to other social platforms and websites.
  • Extensions for sourcing tech candidates. These extensions are created for sourcers who search for developers, engineers, etc.
  • Extensions for email and phone number extraction. Unlike data scrapers, you can only find candidates’ emails, phone numbers, and some other contact data with these extensions. They are simple but still handy for sourcers and recruiters.

Of course, sourcers and recruiters can use other extensions, such as time trackers, calendars, etc. But we picked only extensions that relate to the professional fields and didn’t include the general-task tools.

Now, let’s have a closer look at each extension.
