Interview the Interviewer - New York Tri-state HR

Hi RBC readers, I'm working on a website aimed at helping college students find jobs after graduation. There's a lot of entry-level professional jobs out there however finding them is a bit cumbersome and many jobs advertised are overly reliant on campus recruiting efforts. Be that as it may, I'd love to interview and feature recruiters or HR professionals from around the New York tri-state area who actively work with placing students into grad jobs. The interview would be featured in a series…See More

"Very interesting post, Bill. I'm curious though - how does this approach differ from targeting those universities via different means? For example, the Facebook ads can narrow down on schools and interests. If the job was for engineering,…"

"Most companies operate under a closed shop and don't like being contacted save for a referral or via the company's careers page. So it's refreshing to see Groupon advocate for candidates with the sensible proviso to do some research…"

Luke Toland commented on Slouch's blog post 'Would you write that post if you had nothing to sell?'
"It happens all the time, even in the comments section. It's most annoying when there's no disclosure. When the author has a vested interest to promote something, they should disclose that. Just now I saw a commenter begin the sales pitch…"

Luke Toland replied to Ronald's discussion 'Are Entry Level Candidates Killing America?'
"People go to college with the expectation that they'll earn a better living than the minimum to average wage. Hence, graduates are hoping to make more than $7.50-$20 an hour. Slashing pay rates without a commensurate cut in the cost of…"

There is something almost archaic about the term job board. It connotes a dirty tack ridden area with pamphlets adorned across its frayed wooden edges. This is a place where a multitude of companies each place their latest and greatest positions for individuals to cluster around, sneer and glean any piece of vital information that can assist their application.
