Is Facebook entering the recruiting industry?

In a recent article published by Forbes, according to a spokesperson for the company, this is not true.  I've been personally waiting for them to step up to compete with LinkedIn for awhile and glad that it appears this is starting to take shape. What they have created is essentially a Social jobs partnership application.  The page allows users to search for jobs by location, industry and skill; apply to them directly through Facebook; and then share the jobs to their social network.  Sound…See More

Tweetizen is not the next generation tweezer

One our rockstar sourcers recently gave a presentation on 4 twitter tools, one specifically is worth mentioning as it's newer and with the popularity of twitter, it allows you to filter.Tweetizen is a fairly new application described as “a simple web-based tool designed to help you filter the daily influx of tweets, and easily find the ones that are relevant to you.” While Twellow groups people into categories, Tweetizen combines tweets into categorized groups. You can search their predefined…See More

"Post and Pray" is like Online Dating

Posted on October 10, 2012 at 10:58am 10 Comments

A lot of companies are moving away from the "Post and Pray" approach, but unfortunately, there is still a fair share of companies out there that are spending too much money on this "methodology".  How many times have you talked to a client and they don't have a job description and expect you to work on the role or send you a job description with a few sentences about needing to be detail oriented?

Monkey see Monkey do... Internal Culture

Posted on May 17, 2012 at 9:59am 3 Comments

 

I had a colleague send me a story last year about an experiment with monkeys.. it has always stuck in my head when I see clients and companies continue down the path of least resistance.. essentially learned behavior that is neither productive or conducive to cultivating their most valuable resource.. the employee.  This analogy has two points.. ensure you evaluate a client's culture as to not find the perfect candidate to only send them off to Babylon and secondly, audit your own…
