Recruiting Caregivers with Boolean strings

Build search according to your needs:

  • -job -jobs -sample -examples, to avoid irrelevant results.
  • intitle: or inurl: operator, to include the word “resume” or “CV” in the page title or page url respectively.
  • (caregiver OR “home health aide”), to cover variations of similar job titles.

Here’s an example of a generic search string that you can further modify to find resumes:

(intitle:resume OR intitle:cv) caregiver -job -jobs -sample -examples

With this search string, the words “resume” or “CV” have to appear in the page title. And, excluding more terms will reduce false positives.

Searching for Caregiver profiles

Sourcing caregivers is easier if you search for profiles on social media. To do this, run Boolean strings on Google. Use the site: operator and terms found exclusively on member profiles. For example:

  • site:meetup.com caregiver "member since"
  • site:quora.com caregiver inurl:profile

Add more criteria to your search to find profiles that better match your requirements.

When sourcing EU candidates, please refer to guidance on using social media for recruiting and collecting candidate information as per the General Data Protection Regulation, or GDPR.
