Hello All,

I attended the ERE Expo in FL last week and was introduced to the work of searching using Google, Yahoo, Live, etc. Since I am new at this I have not mastered eliminating unwanted Web-sites while searching. Could someone provide me with the operators and text of how to do this?

Thanks,

Norm

Good morning Norm!

Using google trying making sure that you using -job -jobs -submit -your

You could also do -intitle:job

You know I have tried those, but I keep getting websites or companies that are looking to provide resumes.

Here is a sample of one of my searches:

(intitle:"resume for" | intitle:"resume of") electrician AND detailer AND CAD -(-inanchor:apply -inanchor:submit -inanchor:sample -intitle:how -intitle:write)

I also have done the ones you mentioned but I believe I'm missing a key one
keyword here inurl:resume jobskill jobskill jobskill (phone OR email) -submit -openings -template -tips -submission -sample -examples -wizard

This has worked well for me to eliminate most job board and sample stuff. It may pull resumes off of job boards, but I have had good luck getting candidates contact info from them anyway.

The first keyword could be the job title: engineer or "programmer analyst" then the other keywords are skill sets...you can add several and back off to get your base set of resumes...

Good luck...
Ok let me run it and try a few different things. Give me a few minutes.

Ok I ran one on google and it seemed ok, you might need to tweak your keywords a bit to make sure you're getting what you want. This is what I ran:

intitle:resume electrician cad detailer -job -jobs -send -submit -you

easy way for most search engine is to use the minus sign and the words that are typically used in job postings instead of resumes. i.e. -jobs -submit -posting

Or you could use a product like eGrabber's Resume Grabber Pro - which will analyze each of the pages in your search and figure out which ones are real resumes. Fairly expensive tool - but it will pay for itself in the amount of time that you get back during each search.

One other thing - you can limit the results to PDFs and .doc files which will 'over eliminate' but will give you a much cleaner list too. (inurl:.doc OR inurl:.pdf)
