Top 10 Technique – Honing In On That Elusive Resume

Filed under: Strategies,Techniques — netrecruiter @ 15:05

How many different words can be used to find a resume or candidate profile, only a resume or profile, and not a job announcement? Crafting a search string that returns only useful information about your intended target is not that hard.

Let’s start with the different ways a resume or candidate profile can be found on the Internet. You want to find the following words in either the title of the web page or the within the URL or web address. Hence, the two commands to use will be “intitle:” and “inurl:”. These are generally universal commands among most of the major search and metasearch engines.

Here are some synonyms or alternative names for how resumes or candidate profiles can be found.

About Me
Bio(s)
Curriculum Vitae
CV(s)
Homepage
Profile(s)
Resume(s)
Resumebook
Vitae

You can further refine your search of that elusive resume or candidate profile by adding qualifiers that are generally found within the body of these pages.

Certification
Education
Experience
Objective
Overview
Qualifications
References
Summary of Qualifications
Work Experience
Work History

And finally, you will need to weed out all those JOBS with some choice words or phrases.
