I am relatively new to Recruiting - been on the sales side of Staffing business for a long time with only surface knowledge of recruiting. I recently started my own firm (Tech staffing) and have a partner that I use for recruiting but would like to do more on my own.

Can anyone suggest a good service that searches multiple resume repositories? I have CareerBuilder subscription and I am not real impressed with them. If I am going to pay for a service I would like to pay for one that searches many databases (some of the big job boards as well as niche and skill set specific).

All suggestions appreciated from a Recruiting newbie!!

Hi Bryan, I think you're looking for is a sourcing tool since you're asking for multiple databases at the same time. Something like 'sourcepoint' by AIRS, might be - or might not - be your cup of tea. However, if you're looking for something free, consider reading up on boolean logic and search techniques. In particular the xray technique. Then, by using something like Google CSE or Rollyo, you can automatically search a few sites at the same time.
Thanks Harold! I appreciate the tips!

Good suggestion Jane. I do already have a personal resume pool although small, but growing.

Hi Bryan:

I just wanted to briefly say hello and introduce our resume spidering tool, TalentHook. Searching thousands of resumes sources including pay sites like Careerbuilder, network sites like LinkedIn, professional sites, alumni and college sites, search engines and the open web, we bring over 15 years collective experience in safe, fast, comprehensive automated resume search. If you haven't had a chance to take a look at our product, you may want to consider a quick 20 minute demo which you can request through our site: www.talenthook.com.

Consolidating resume search is one advantage to resume spidering, with a solution like TalentHook you can also eliminate duplicate resumes appearing in your results, you can rank your resumes, automate boolean search logic for all of your search channels, search your existing database for resumes you've already collected and more. It really can (when done correctly), shave considerable time off of your recruitment process.

Best of luck to you and if I can clarify or provide additional information, it would be my pleasure to assist you.

Best,

Cheryl
