The Internet Sourcing Community

Hi BSN members...
This week I underwent a transition. I mean, earlier I was working only on IT requirements, for the clients looking for IT candidates, but now I am working on non-IT requisitions, for positions ranging from technician to PM's.
Please suggest that is there any specific tecnique I need to learn.
Also, I am seeking a tool for TITLE synonym search. Please suggest.

Thanks
MG

Manish,

The synonym search in Google is represented by using the tilde symbol (~). Just insert that before the title words such as ~prgrammer, etc.
Gary,
Thanks for the note. Actually I follow the discussions here in BSN, and have been using Tilde (~) for the synonym search on Google. Also, I use Google synonym search tool to look for alternate words/titles.
But as I bank too much on the paid job sites (CB/Monster/Dice) as well for sourcing the resumes, I was looking for any tool which can suggest similar job titles for any given job title, coz Tilde symbol does not run on the job boards. I tried using Thesaurus and also Onetcodeconnector.org, but was not successful as I did not know how to use it.
Again, I mentioned in the discussion, I am very comfortable working with IT requisitions and willing to learn the techniques of writing search strings for non-IT positions. Any suggestions on this will be of great help to me.

Thanks
MG

Manish,

You may also want to start out with Broadlook's Title Research tool. It's a good place to start and then you can refine your titles from there. It is a desktop application and is completely free. I have it installed and it can be helpful. Although, I don't see the download link on the website anymore so you may have to email or call to get the free copy.

Good luck!
:-( It is no more available for free Adam, I think. I am using their Contact Capture tool, otherwise it would have been of great help.
Hope I will pick up soon. BTW I have started playing with the key-words and it's working!

Thanks
MG

Try Google Sets.... http://labs.google.com/sets
Give it a word and it will give you a list of related terms. Great for building knowledge around a new industry. Beware - it does gove some strange things sometimes, but usually, most of the results are great...
