If Colleges Blog To Recruit, Why Don’t You?

Friday, May 18, 2007

I don’t think Steven Rothburg is bitter: Virtually all employment-related blogging is coming out of the offices of job boards and third party recruiters. With very few exceptions, virtually no corporate recruiters are blogging. That’s a real shame as those same corporations are crying the blues about how hard it is to recruit the best [...]

Thanks to CM Russell of RecruitingFly for pointing me to this USA Today article about the dot com recruiting craziness: “I remember the ’90s hiring boom, and I thought that was the peak. I would say this time hiring is even more aggressive,” says Barbara Massa, recruiting services director at EMC, an information management and [...]

I’m always explaining the nomenclature of technical recruiting. It’s not necessarily a well-formed language, but it does have various constructs that are helpful to understand. To make it a little simpler, I’ve gathered some definitions and placed them in a group here on the website called Glossary of Recruiting Terms. Current definitions I have made [...]

It’s the People, Stupid

Recently, I had the opportunity to review my business performance with my colleagues and managers. It was a great experience and I owe a great deal of respect to my region’s leaders who consistently challenge each branch to inspect themselves and make adjustments accordingly. Thanks to that introspection, I am trying to look deeply into [...]

Why Facebook Gets My Lovin’

Saturday, February 3, 2007

I have a new desktop, and it’s NOT from google. Of all things, it’s a social networking site that actually delivers on the promise of what that means–a simple, fun way to keep tabs on people you know and people you care about. Yep, it’s Facebook. In the last few weeks, I’ve been so passionate [...]

Google Docs for Job Posts

Heres’ a great idea from a local company using Google’s free online documents tool Google Documents & Spreadsheets to post online job ads. Why this is a great idea: Postings on job-boards expire–and you can’t control them well. This format allows you to keep control. Add, edit, delete whenever you like. Google will likely index [...]

When it comes right down to it, one of the hardest things for a recruiter or hiring manager to determine is not what’s on a resume (resumes are not valuable on their own, and it’s too easy to find “resumes”, if that’s your goal). The hardest thing to learn about a potential hire is who [...]

Sharing a gem I gleaned from the ERE Recruiting Leadership Forum this morning, a posting by Nicole Cox, Director of Recruiter Network Quality at Decision Toolbox about the ten criteria she uses to choose a good recruiter: 1. Tenacity2. Strong communication skills3. Ability to set expectations with the client and candidate4. Ability to push-back on [...]

Compare Salaries By Location

I am still jiving over Indeed’s new tool for Salary Search. I was just mashing up some results when I realized the tool nicely allows comparison of salary among localities, or globally (as far as Indeed’s system is concerned, anyway). I started comparing my local market (Utah) to the Indeed global market, not suprized to [...]

Ever since I heard about Indeed, I have been a fan. Aggregated jobs search results in one place–alerts by email or RSS/XML. Back in April, I bumped into their Job Trends tool and I analyzed six hot job categories to see their frequency in the indeed job-posting world: Engineer Customer Service Sales Receptionist part time [...]
