Five Strings to Source for IT Professionals

Skill Search on LinkedIn You May Not Have Heard Of

If you are a Recruiter and have listed your job openings and the skills you are looking for within your LinkedIn profile, chances are, sometimes you receive messages offering a job as a JavaScript programmer or a SAP consultant. Annoying! That happens because you have those keywords on the profile; someone found you in search and forgot to review your profile. It's NOT a good practice sending messaging to people who are not qualified. However, they will not have found you in the first place if…See More

Boolean is Alive and Well, But Long Boolean is Dead

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?

Regards,

Jay
