We already looked at Women so now let's focus on Hispanic. As I said in my previous post remember diversity sourcing is a very special skill. You need to have knowledge of were to search or as I have said in my " Top Ten Rules for Successful Internet Sourcers " post, you need to do your research. Below are some key words and phrases you can add to any boolean search string that will increase your chances of finding diverse candidates. For the purposes of this and future posting I am focusing on; Women, Hispanic, African American, Native American. So on to the key words and phrases;




- National Society of Hispanic

University of Texas— Pan American


University of Texas—El Paso

- National Council of Hispanic

Texas A&M University—Kingsville


St. Mary's University of San Antonio

- Society of Mexican American

New Mexico Highlands University

Engineers & Scientists (MAES)

Other Terms:

Hispanic Fraternities/Sororities:


Gamma Alpha Omega


La Hermandad de Oe Me Te

Latin American* Latino*

Kappa Delta Chi


Omega Delta Phi

Remember as I said in my "Words and Phrases to recruit by!!!" blog post, go beyond the basics. Were ever you see an abbreviation being used also spell it out, it will improve you search results.

Remember this is very easy just take your boolean search string and add on any of the above words or phrases.

example, form my "If You Build It, They Will Come: the story of a successful Boolean search string!!" blog posting, you have the below. Simply add the part in red and you have a search string that will pull up women that fit all the requirements in the string.

(title:resume OR title:CV OR title:bio OR title:homepage OR url:resume OR resume) AND NOT (job OR "career opportunity" OR "equal opportunity employer" OR "employment at" OR EOE OR "employment opportunity" OR opening OR "submit resume" OR "your resume" OR "sample resume" OR "career development" OR classified OR book OR books) AND(Cryptography OR Biometric OR Security OR firewall) AND (Symantec OR Microsoft OR Norton OR McAfee) And ("Software Engineer" OR "Software Developer" etc...) And (C++ OR C etc...) And (MAES OR "Society of Mexican American Engineers and Scientists")

In one of my next posting we will look at African Americans as our next diversity sourcing subject.

Yeah I know, but I did not want to get to crazy here. For that matter I forgot Portugeese, Mexican and a host of other languages.
