Finding suitable candidates

When I am recruiting new people, I am almost always looking for people similar to the good ones already working with me.

And the best way to get them, I have found (short of cloning them), is to ask my existing employees to find such people from among their friends. After all, as the adage goes, "birds of a feather, flock together".

Works like a charm - every time! A gazillion points to referrals!

[Don't flame me. This is not the same as wanting people exactly like me. That would be disastrous :(, I know.]

Now, how nice would it be if I could ask a recruiter or a jobsite to "get me someone exactly like this"?

Do you have the same wish? Do you have a blue-print of your new employees in your mind?
