I need a REAL search engine...

in General Discussion edited January 2014
I've tried Yahoo, Excite, Hotbot, Alltheweb, 411.com, Yellowpages.com for ANY information on a Video/DVD company here in philadelphia who has an advertisement for a graphic design position. All turned up nothing for this "Established Video Company". I would like to get a web site adress (there is an Alpha Video web site...not theirs)or even a phone number. I find it incredible that there is nothing on them online.



But all these search engines seem to spit out the exact same results (crap). I would like to get an idea who/what and how they do things.



It's for a job position. Here's the details:



GRAPHIC DESIGNER Established Video Company known for it's exceptional cover art seeks very creative designer to work on DVD movie packages. MUST have several years AGENCY LEVEL DESIGN EXPERIENCE. Be expert in Quark, & Illustrator with exceptional Photoshop skills on Mac platform. Must possess the ability to colorize B&W photos and create convincing full-color flesh tones. Knowledge and love of movie posters and fine art helpful. Starting salary range approx. 25-30K depending on ability. Full benefits. Great opportunity to grow for a creative person. Our Corporate office is located in Ardmore and is easily accessible by public transportation (Rt 100/Septa). SEND SAMPLES Resume to:





Alpha Video

Attn: ALP-ART-0103

2320 Haverford Road

Ardmore, PA 19003



Find it funny that they MUST have someone with 7 yrs. agency experience but will only pay $25-30k? Well, welcome to the crappy situation of the graphic design market... Still, the position sounds interesting...and my current job is getting close to dying on me soon...

    Hey, cool. I forgot you're a local dude. If you can get any info that would be great.



    I think I remember that they do a lot of old movies and music artists...that's where I think the colorization of B&W photos comes into play. I swear that they had a web site...but I lost the link last summer...



    I also know that I've seen this position pop up in the papers every 5-6 months too. So there probably a revolving door there.



    But the job market in this field is shitty anyways. I am looking for anything in the Philly area right now.

    Google licenses there technology to Yahoo, so the results should be pretty equal.



    Also try <a href="http://teoma.com"; target="_blank">teoma.com</a>. I've had good results with them, though Google is still better.
