iSEEK is a search utility that combines a number of features that analyze your search results with each query. As a result you can drill down on specific areas of interest to produce targeted, filtered and highly relevant results.

iSEEK is included in the G-Recruiters’ Dashboard collection of search engines found in the Search Bar, filed under Deep Web.

This playlist runs through some of the basic features but, to see it applied in recruiting scenarios, check out the Become a Search Whiz series of webinars and recordings over on our sister site BROWN BAG RECRUITER. Better still, try it yourself.
