Description: This passage is about indeed login, which shows you how to use a free resume search on Indeed.com. Using this resource correctly can make it faster and easier to find candidates with the exact set of qualifications you need.
This is Lawrence Magee, recruiter consultant. Today I want to talk about some free tools that recruiters can use. I’ve received a few emails from some people that said you’re a LinkedIn recruiter, it’s great, my company doesn’t have a budget for it.
There are some free tools that we can use, I always preface everything by saying no tool works perfectly all the time, you’ve got to use all the tools that you have access to and use every arrow in your quiver to speak.
We’re going to get into indeed.com in the browser, this page is specifically for job seekers, I’m going to go to the resume section, in the URL at the top type in resumes and hit enter, it’ll take you to another page.
Underneath the find resumes button, you need to click advanced search, then you can search you know by skill set, by location and so on, for this example let’s use Java, it seems to be a popular skill these days.
I always use title of any job in parentheses, we’re searching for a software engineer, in years of experience let’s look for six to ten, in degree let’s choose the minimum bachelors, location depends on where you are and with what you’re looking for.
Click find resumes, we get 56 resumes, I’m going to scroll down, you can highlight over names for instance Charles Hopkins, he lives in Wylie Texas, this is suburb of Dallas and it gives you a snapshot of his resume, you can also click on this and get more detail.
There’s a person whose name is Raavan Kumar, click on his resume, he’s in Allen Texas, it’s another suburb in the northern sector of Dallas, it seems that he’s potential target, I’m not getting too specific, I’m giving you an example.
You may be searching for the senior person or you may be searching for a job of architect, you put those parameters in as part of your keyword search, over here to the right you can forward this resume to someone.
If we’re going to afford to hire a manager, we want to contact the candidate and talk to him to see if he’s still available, we contact the candidate, if he’s great, he’s fit, he’s on the right salary range, at that point we can download the resume or email the resume to a hiring manager.
That’s how I use the free handy tool, there are a lot of free tools, you can look for any type of skill set in any location, this has been a good tool, it’s helped me in the past, if you have a little or no budget, this is a good tool you can use.
