just new to the recruiting job (tech industry in silicon valley). I'm tasked to find quality new grads, masters students etc for software engineering.
What are the different places (preferably free) where I can get stacks of resumes? Can I go to universities and ask for resumes? how does all of that work?
We are low of $ so cant spend money to get resumes but want to be resourceful. Really appreciate all the help as I am the sole recruiter (though it's not my main task here, I do devops for the startup as well). We will hopefully get a full time recruiter soon...but until then, I could really use your help!
UPDATE: Thanks for the responses everyone (yes i know im a noob). One more question: With job applications, when they apply, will i just get a bunch of resumes as pdfs? Also for conferences, etc, are the resume batches I get a zipfile of pdfs or something?
