"@Gareth, eSocialMedia seems like an interesting solution. At Apply4U - we are a 'proactive' online job board that already proven to be a worthy alternative to recruitment agencies because it's a concept that brings…"

"Paul, your example of Travel Agencies does say something..We go to travel agencies for special packages and complicated travel requirements (those that are not readily available on online travel websites) The employment market is a much more…"

"Saying that SM (or any shiny new toy) will kill off recruiting is saying that candidates ("talent readily available on SM") are simple commodities that can be picked off the shelf when you need them. Someone still needs to manage the…"

"We have come a long way since 1993 (or so) when we started searching for jobs online. Social media will change the roles of recruiters but don't see it being eliminated. Employers still need Decision Makers on Candidates (whether its internal…"

"Elise, I think that's the key - time. Most firms have time poor decision makers. That time requirement will continue to be outsourced. Here in the UK even recruitment firms that claim to 'do' social media have yet to fully grasp how…"

"I think social media makes it easier for coworkers and friends to make hiring referals to their employers.  It is easier to stay in touch with people that you have met before or spent time with in the past at a conference, worked with at a…"

"Paul, it's an interesting question but I don't see social media killing recruitment firms. It's just another tool at their disposal. Over the past 2 years we at eSocialMedia have seen some recruitment firms embrace social media…"

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, www.recruitingblogs.com/group/linkedin. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".

Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.

1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.

What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?

You have 4 options from which to choose:

(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.

(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.

(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.

(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.

A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.

I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.

Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).

Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to paul@mnheadhunter.com

Thank you for your time.

P.
