Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'Survey shows only 28% of jobs found through networking (an Unmoderated post)'
"I'm not sure it matters whether we have a single agreed upon definition of networking. The concept of networking has changed in the past 20 years. The stat that keeps getting cited hasn't."

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'Survey shows only 28% of jobs found through networking (an Unmoderated post)'
"They may ask it for a reason, but that doesn't mean candidates spend all that much time answering it. I know I always skip over the "how did you hear about us" questions. And source of hire statistics are notorious for being…"

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'Survey shows only 28% of jobs found through networking (an Unmoderated post)'
"I first found the 80% number in a Forbes article about MBAs and their job search, circa 1991. There was no study cited as the source of that stat, but it has been repeated frequently since then. The CareerXRoads annual survey is a resource that I…"

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'I get so frustrated with "your reply must be approved" on blogs....'
"@Jerry, don't want to burst your bubble, gunslinger, but the "real" info you just discovered was already posted, by moi (casually shines nails on lapel) last week, on the blog that you got nickers-knotted over."

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'I get so frustrated with "your reply must be approved" on blogs....'
"@nate It would be nice to see Dan Schwabel as a guest on the @animal show, but after the foofala (phoophalla? foo.. never mind) uproar that he cause when he called recruiters lazy, I'm not sure he'd agree. To be fair to Dan though, the 80%…"

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'I get so frustrated with "your reply must be approved" on blogs....'
"Duly noted. And since recruitingblogs does such a good job of spam filtering, the "await moderation" option should be removed."

Karen Siwak commented on Jerry Albright's blog post 'I get so frustrated with "your reply must be approved" on blogs....'
"Jerry, you have a bee in your bonnet about Dan Schwabel (perhaps because he's more famous than you?) That being said, criticism of "thought leaders" must be considered fair play in the comments section of any post that quotes…"

"He did, Daniel, didn't you know?! It was all over twitter :)"

Karen Siwak commented on Bill Boorman's blog post 'Sacked for a LinkedIn Profile? Not Quite'
"@Bill, if a jobseeker waits until the interview to share the context for his achievements, there's a good chance there won't ever be an interview. There is a way of telling the story that balances discretion with disclosure, and…"

Karen Siwak commented on Bill Boorman's blog post 'Sacked for a LinkedIn Profile? Not Quite'
"I read the original article, and Daniel's response, and frankly I think Sandra you are over-reacting in your critique. I'm not seeing facts being presented incorrectly, but rather ideas being put forward for discussion. Daniel isn't…"
