"I'll answer this from my job seeker perspective: I wanted respect.  And I felt like, as a job seeker, I didn't get it from anyone.   I think any specific thing a job seeker wants (what you find from the focus group) will come…"

How has social marketing evolved? Please share your thoughts...

Six years ago a big part of my social marketing strategy was blogging... either writing my own posts or commenting on other blogs in my industry.  I would look for blogs from recruiters (there were lots of them) and career coaches and resume writers (not as many back then).Then, the social networks got more powerful. LinkedIn wasn't really a place to have conversations (like Group Discussions) but I saw people start to comment about my posts ON FACEBOOK! And then quick comments on Twitter. My…See More

Posted on August 21, 2012 at 10:47am 2 Comments

In my job search, six years ago, I thought I knew what recruiters were for: to get me a job.

I thought it was your job to take my resume and find that perfect fit for me.  I found 30 local recruiters and shared my resume with them, sure they would be wowed, impressed, and fall all over themselves to place me so they could get a fat commission.

Posted on July 23, 2012 at 2:30pm 16 Comments
