Getting tired of the same old, same old? Finding that your search queries on your favorite search engines aren’t producing the results ou want? Perhaps it’s time to spread your wings. A recent study by computer scientists at the NEC Research Institute in Princeton NJ implied that the major search engines have indexed less than 35% of what’s available on the Web. This means there’s plenty of Web left to explore. A lot of that territory is filled with white papers, personal homepages, directories, etc. So, how to find those pages? Diversify your search sources. IT recruiters can:
- Try a directory of searchable databases specializing in computers and the Internet here.
- Find people with CorpTech’s People Finder
- Browse through telecom and telephony names and businesses at Teleplaza or Rent-a-Geek
Need architects or engineers?
