"Yes, while it does add expediency and opens up the talent pool, it does take away the networking aspect. Networking is really what sets apart a good hire through understanding/getting to know very closely, the prospective hire and the job fit. It is…"

Derdiver commented on Paul Petrone's blog post 'How Yahoo Hires: Recruiter-In-Chief'
