Automate Part of your Sourcing Process

Source: eGrabber Newsletter

Sourcing candidates manually from the Internet is a time consuming process, even if you have the right search strings. But, there are ways to automate parts of the process. For example, you can use Google Alerts to receive links to new resume postings straight to your inbox. Here's how:

1)     Go to the Google Alerts website

2)     In the 'Search terms' box, enter your search string. For example, if you would like to receive information in new resume postings/ updates for Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) in the state of California, enter the following search string* in the box

intitle:resume (CPA) (California | CA)

3)     In the 'Type' box, select Web from the drop-down

4)     Enter your email and click on the Create Alert button

Now you will start receiving updates from Google through emails. All you need to do is check your inbox for info on links to new / updated resumes.
