记得我有一次和同事开玩笑说:猎头顾问应该和记者一样,能够不花钱办的事情一定不要花冤枉钱。比如去参加什么专业研讨会,千万不要傻呼呼地去买几千块的门票仅仅为了去认识几个潜在的客户或候选人。你只要想办法,一定可以找到进门不花钱的办法。

很多猎头公司或顾问可能都会花点银子购买一些简历数据库(比如51job, chinahr, zhaopin)来进行候选人简历的搜索。但很多人都没有试过甚至想过利用搜索引擎(Google,Baidu)之类的进行免费简历搜索。以前转过一篇微软简历搜索专家Glenn Gutmacher的“如何搜索在中国的免费公开简历”,这里还有一篇类似的文章也来自于另一位微软招聘高手Jim Stroud,名为“如何利用Google搜寻SAS程序员简历”。这里是原文:

In the market for SAS programmers? Do they seem to be evading your reach? Never fear, here is a quick tutorial on how to use Google to find them (or at least, some of them).

  1. I ask Google to look for the term “resume” in the title of every web document in its database
  2. I add the keyword SAS
  3. I then ask Google to include any of the following terms: programmer, engineer or developer
  4. Since “Education” is almost always listed on a resume, I add that term to my query.
  5. A lot of times when I am sourcing from the web, I find a lot of sample resumes. These sample resumes are good for people who are trying to figure out how to format their resume, but not so good for me. I don’t need them in my search results, so I ask Google not to include them.
  6. Usually when people post their resume (even if they have multiple versions available), they refer to it as “my resume,” or “resume of.” Rarely do I find resume written in plural on a homepage. Most likely, if I see “resumes” it is on a job site of some kind. I don’t need that in my search results. So I tell Google to ban results with the term “resumes” in it.
  7. I also ask Google not to return results with the term “apply” in it. Why? Yeah, you guessed it. “Please apply here for the position” is how “apply” is typically used and I don’t want that in my results either.

So with all of that said, here is how my search string would look.

intitle:resume SAS (programmer OR engineer OR developer) education -intitle:jobs -sample -apply –resumes

At this writing, 500 results were returned and the overall majority were resumes. Feeling SASsy? Give it a try.

以上是Jim给出的搜索英文简历的样本,如果要搜索中国的SAS简历我稍许改动一下,也得到了300多个结果:

intitle:”简历” SAS (程序员 OR 工程师 OR 技术开发) 教育 -intitle:”工作机会” -”样本” -”提交”

粗看了一下结果,也还不错。 大家可以试试看看。计算机基础好的顾问也许可以看懂上面的一些特殊字符,如果看不很明白则建议通过Google的高级搜寻(Advanced Search)来理解这些字符。 一旦掌握可以把类似的方法扩大到其它行业和调整搜寻的条件来进一步优化搜索结果。

在选择搜索引擎的时候,我个人意见是Google的效果要比Baidu好很多。首先是结果排列自然,不会像Baidu把广告结果都排在前面;其次是Google的高级搜寻用法比较灵活准确。 我发现很多年轻的德卡公司同事都喜欢使用Baidu,但如果仅从猎头工作的需要上来看,我会建议大家使用Google的。
