About Resume Searches
This service allows you to search the CareerCross resume bank for suitable candidates. A wide variety of search criteria are available to help you pinpoint the perfect candidate. You can search as many times as you like while your contract is active. When you find a suitable candidate, you can contact them regarding suitable positions by sending a resume contact (also called “scout mail”).
How to Search
Keyword or Resume ID Search – Enter keywords or a resume ID in the “Keyword or Resume ID” field. A keyword search will return a list of resumes that include your keyword. The keywords will be highlighted in the candidates resume. You can refine your keyword search using special reserved words such as “and”, “or”, or “not”. For more information please click on “Improve your keyword search”.
Candidate Information – You can refine your results by selecting from a wide range of search criteria. These include current location, experienced job category, current salary, desired location, desired job category, desired salary, education, language ability, resume bookmark status and date updated.
You can select how you would like to sort your search results by selecting an option from the “Sort By” field in the resume search form. Searches will be sorted by the “Date Updated” by default to show the latest resumes that match your search criteria. You can also perform a “Relevance” search. A relevance-based search searches the database using fuzzy logic (meaning it searches your set criteria as well as values that closely match those you set), each resume is then given a percentage rating based on how accurately it matches your search criteria. The results are then ordered from highest percentage (closest match) to lowest. If multiple resumes have the same percentage score, they will then be sorted by the date.
Saving your search result
Your search query can be saved for use at a later date. Saved searches make your next resume search a lot quicker and easier. To save, please enter a title in the “Resume Search Title” field at the bottom of the “Resume Search” page or the “Save search result” field on the search results page.
