They farm cvs.
wordsearch them with wider and wider criteria to get a hit.
Bulk email the lot of them
Then wait for the spammee to ring back and tell them if they think it's a good match.

When the bubble was growing my phone was non stop, now it's either a mailshot, or me hitting the job posting sites and ringing the recruiter.
The latter is how I've got the bulk of my jobs.
Even being inactive on the market for two years I still average about 10 email shots a week.
