As a recruiter you goal is to use the right tool at the right time to uncover the right talent or information.  Craigslist is often a tool of choose for recruiters but I have to question how efficient they are gathering the  needed information. My guess is that the resume section on craigslist serves like your ATS. Hundreds of resumes that are not qualified, so you get heavy eyed and close it out.

CraigsPal has an app for that. There are 2 versions, free and paid. Both have no search restrictions and both provide the same results. The difference is that you can save searches and distribute the information a bit differently in the paid version.

It’s fully compatible with Boolean search and offers a search builder as well. Now it was not built for resume searching specifically but it works pretty darn well.  You should try using this to search for garage sales or open houses as well.
