Here is a quick and efficient way to search resume for free and get introduced to a good set of free recruiting tools that are available for you that you may not know about. Free-For-Recruiters has a resume directory with tens of thousands of resumes for you to search. I like to search the data base off site through Google.
If you use the site command your results come back a little more targeted but overall the internal search is strong. The internal search is also powered by Google, so it’s your preference. The site also has a mini directory on the main page organized by vertical for easy searching.
Here’s a quick example of a site search you can use to round up some gather some strong candidate. The resume does include all contact info for you!
Basic site search: (obviously changing the terms to meet your search)
Keyword1 Keyword2 site:free-for-recruiters.com inurl:resume location
For this example I used the following string leaving off the location (defaults to USA)
engineer lean site:free-for-recruiters.com inurl:resume
The results are pretty good and efficient. The search above shows 43 results. So, here is a screen shot of what the actual resume looks like once you decided to hop in and take a look. The presentation is just normal text, but relax it’s free and you get the contact info from the candidate.
All in all, this is a great comprehensive resume search tool to add to your arsenal. Let me know your thoughts and any resources you find to be helpful.
