Christopher Poreda replied to Tim Spagnola's discussion 'Question of the day: How long should a job seeker wait for an offer?'
"Just like a candidate would like to entertain all opportunities before making a decision, so would a company.  I think it's up to the recruiter to create a sense of loss for the company if they wait.  I used to always ask, "Is…"

"That's my yob Chris, that and calling BS on all the silly junk and silly people in recruiting who have the illusion that they are kind of a big deal."

Sandra McCartt commented on Christopher Poreda's blog post 'Too good for job boards?'
"I have always found the snitty attitude of "I don't use job boards" to be funny.  Go ahead sucker, spend 4 billion hours doing boolean searches.  I will just post the job and get the same people you dig up and a whole bunch…"

Too good for job boards?

Posted on March 28, 2012 at 2:18pm 9 Comments

This is an article that Neil Lebovits of Dynamic Scale recently had published in The Fordyce Letter.  Neil is the former president of Ajilon Finance, one of the nations largest Accounting/Finance recruitment firms.

I cannot believe how many of my clients/followers tell me that they don’t or won’t use job boards because their clients either won’t pay for job board candidates or don’t want to see job board candidates. Many tell me with a gleeful condescension that…

What will LinkedIn become?

LinkedIn is a dream tool (for now).  Having the ability to view up to date resumes (or profiles), being automatically notified of job changes, being connected through contacts/groups, etc. is a recruiters Nirvana.  But like anything that works, you have to work it.  However, being a public company can often times cloud decisions making them based on quarterly numbers rather then core.  Where are they going and what will they look like in 12 months? 

Have/would you pay a "signing bonus" to a candidate to get a deal done?

You want more business; be inflexible. That's right...I said it.

When I ran a search firm the number one conversation around the watercooler was fees; clients trying to reduce them.  They'd site competition, the economy, whatever.  My response was always the same; NO, unless there was exclusivity, volume or some other circumstance that compensated the reduction. The principle is simple: the belief that the value received from my service is far greater than the fee itself.

It goes something like this: After having a 20 minute conversation with a…
