A new cv/resume search engine

April 29, 2008

Here is a beta website called CVfox that could help you find not only online bios on linkedin, but online resumes too.

CVfox was created by Donatello Tomasso. I believe he recently launched this beta a month ago for the public & professional recruiters.

CVfox does three types of searches – body search, title search, and x-ray search. It first defaults to doing an x-ray search first for bios/resumes. So you can or may even refine your search by then clicking body or title by hitting the refinement tabs after you’ve run your initial search.

Try it out and see if you like it.

Pick up something new in sourcing

April 25, 2008

A friend, Searchologist, trainer, blogger, and all-around nice guy Jim Stroud has something free to give away to all fellow HR staffing professionals. Check it out and pick up something new to help you find passive talent out there on the web!

Per his words…

With my new book – Resume Forensics, you will learn:

* How to search Google for free resumes
* How to search Yahoo for free resumes
* How to search Live for free resumes
* How to find additional keywords for your resume searches
* How to create search strings that work on Google, Yahoo and Live
* How to take a job description and create multiple search strings from it. (As an example, I take one job description and create 56 pages of search strings from it.)
* How to automate your resume searches so you can (literally) source resumes while you sleep.
