These are the 5 best free tools for recruiters that boost productivity

As a recruiter you have to work hard to find and bring in the right candidate. You constantly have to think outside the box and you are busy with a lot of things at the same time. That’s why we have listed five free tools that boost the productivity of recruiters.


Aevy helps you discover hidden talent by sparking warm dialogues with brilliant technical candidates. Aevy’s software analyzes what you are looking for in a candidate and extracts the relevance options from its database.


TomatoTimer is a tool based on the Pomodoro Technique, a time management technique created by Francesco Cirillo for a more productive way to work and study. You need to work for intervals of 25 minutes & take a 5-minute break between each interval. It’s an easy to use, flexible Pomodoro Technique timer.


SelfControl is a free and open-source application for macOS that lets you block your own access to distracting websites, your mail servers, or anything else on the Internet. Just set a period of time to block for, add sites to your blacklist, and click “Start.” Until that timer expires, you will be unable to access those sites—even if you restart your computer or delete the application. If you’re looking for a windows alternative, you can check out FocusMe.

Hunter is a popular and simple tool that searches for email addresses on websites. It searches a domain and will show all the addresses that can be found. Hunter can also verify the addresses. If you are going to use it more and make more requests, a paid account may be a useful option, but for occasional use, the free account is also sufficient.


Grammarly is a free tool that – the name says it all – checks your texts based on spelling and grammar. In addition to your social media posts and texts on the website, it is also possible to have job postings checked by this tool.
