How to quickly build resume database from the Internet?

A resume database is one of the most primary and powerful tools that recruiters or hiring managers should always have in their kitty. It is a consolidated list of qualified candidates or some times prescreened candidates that recruiters and hiring managers can quickly reach out during various recruiting assignments.
There are some steps involved in building a resume database. The first step is to identify the targeted audience and search resumes. Typically recruiters search for resumes from various sources like job boards, search engines, professional networking sites, social networking sites, forums, personal websites, blogs, user groups, resume portals, etc.
A simple resume search, for example in Google, will fetch you resumes along with a lot of other unwanted data. You have to manually filter the resumes from the search results. Expert recruiters use Boolean search scripts to eliminate the unwanted data and narrow down the search results to appropriate resumes. So you need to learn the complexities of Boolean search scripts if you want to manually search resumes from the Internet.
After searching the resumes, the next step is to extract resumes from the search results. You need to manually visit every resume source and extract resumes. Once you have extracted the resumes, you need to screen resumes based on various parameters like education, experience, skills, location, job profile, age, etc. Screening is a very crucial process to which recruiters or hiring managers need to pay utmost attention. So you need to wade through huge stacks of resumes to screen resumes.
After resume screening, the next step is to perform candidate background check which the employers are very keen about before offering employment. You need to perform candidate search in various social media sites to find out the candidate's cultural background, behavior, ethnicity and other parameters that employers believe is very critical to know before employing a candidate. Once the candidates get through the candidate background verification, they are considered as qualified candidates and the candidate contact details along with their resumes are transferred to the database.
So to build a resume database of qualified candidates, you need to search resumes, extract resumes, screen resumes and perform candidate background check and then select the appropriate candidates.
