Search Passive Resumes using AltaVista

Source: eGrabber Newsletters

The boolean logic for conducting searches on AltaVista is pretty much similar to that of Google. The search syntax for a broad or generic resume search on AltaVista is

intitle:"resume for" OR intitle:"resume of" OR intitle:"Curriculum Vitae" OR intitle:"'s resume" keyword (State) -intitle:example -intitle:examples -intitle:sample -intitle:submit

For, example, if you are looking for passive prospects for software engineering in the state of California, the search script would be

intitle:"resume for" OR intitle:"resume of" OR intitle:"Curriculum Vitae" OR intitle:"'s resume" Software Engineer (CA) -intitle:example -intitle:examples -intitle:sample -intitle:submit

You can further broaden your search by including related keywords for the job title such as software developer, software programmer, etc.
