How to Google up Hidden Job Opportunities

How to Google up Hidden Job Opportunities

In my previous post – How to find a job when the economy sucks (part 3), I mentioned that there were hundreds (if not thousands) of job boards online. I also said that Google indexes many of these job boards and as a result, you can search on job boards that you have never heard of. (Hey, as long as the jobs are there, what do you care about where its posted?)  Anyways, below is a list of search examples that you can use for your own job search.  They are all focused below on Recruiter jobs, so feel free to adjust these samples for your individual needs.

Okay, enough of that, here is the info…

Google Search Strings for Recruiters Looking For Work

1) To find Recruiter jobs in general:

intitle:recruiter (intitle:job OR intitle:jobs OR intitle:careers) (apply OR submit OR eoe)

Are you seeking an entry-level Recruiter position?

2) To find Recruiter jobs by a specific location: (I am using Atlanta as an example, but you can of course use any City or State you choose.):
