Search engine wish list

Assuming NO limitations on the technology what would recruiters vote for as their top features to add to search engines?

Some of mine:

1. Access to all results. When I do a search and see 3500 results, and can only get to a maximum of 1000...ahhhhh

2. Some control over the business logic in the ranking algorythm. - to much popularity means too much mob mentality.

3. The ability to perform 2 searches and create a concordance of results in a 3rd search - Example get…

Onsite Only????

There have been several issues in recruiting that have been hot topics

of discussion lately. I would like to touch on Virtual

Recruiting/Remote Recruiting.

I cannot believe the amount of attention this topic has attracted. I can't believe the tremendous

disdain for remote work by seemingly leading corporations "trying" to

compete (so they say) in a global, growing economy. When the internet

began to get really hot, it opened a lot of doors and leveled… Continue

On who owns Succession Planning, who wants it?

Quote for the Day: Friday, July 20th, 2007

"While sensible, structured succession planning is something that HR would want to push for and would obviously have a crucial role in delivering, it is not up to HR to drive the process - that responsibility rests with the board. And if there is an HR director on the board, then I would hope that succession planning was already part of the mix.

Sadly, just like other people, HR directors are often vain,…

Minneapolis Recruiting Unconference And Recruiting Roadshow Thoughts

As posted on my MN Headhunter blog...

I have received a few email the past two weeks wondering where I have been and why I had not been writing.

Between the day job of recruiting and the other day job of “Cruise Director” for the unconference I have been very, very busy. Mix in with that a volunteer stint at the University of Minnesota to help with the hiring of a graduate assistant I have been a little overwhelmed.

But it has…

Any ideas how to cut a 60 hour workweek (Internet business) down to 30?

I just read Tim Ferriss' book "The 4-Hour Workweek - Experiments in Lifestyle Design"

It talks about the 80/20 rule (80% of your results come from 20% of your efforts&actions), taking mini-retirement vacations, how to NOT defer your LIFE 'till your old --how to

live the millionaire lifestyle now, even on average wages.

I'm trying to find ways of using automated business and marketing…

Building a labor rocket ship!

Building a national labor exchange might not be “Rocket Science“, although it’s far from an easy task and does not happen overnight.

Last week I was lucky enough to spend some quality time with the Connecticut Department of Labor staff, as a consultant, helping with the…

On HR horror stories....

Quote for the Day: Thursday, July 19th, 2007

"Like the story about the employee who, HR discovered on his demise, had forgotten to change the beneficiary of his pension and life insurance when he remarried; HR had to tell the second wife that the first wife was getting the bucks. Or the man who threatened to sue his wife's employer for "enabling" her affair with a co-worker. Or the fast-food worker who sought to sue her employer for demanding that she tame her…

On the EOE/EEO/AA/M/F/D Alphabet Soup...

Quote for the Day: Wednesday, July 18th, 2007

"Equal opportunity statements seem awkward at best and unnecessary at worst, especially in radio commercials. After all, equal opportunity is the law, so stating it in your ad is a bit odd. A company is either open to diversity or not; it either supports equality or it doesn’t. Putting the EOE statement in an ad or commercial doesn’t change anything.

Imagine spotting a delivery van with a bumper sticker that…

SourceCon Challenge#2 - So you’re Stumped !! Great Sourcers that you are !!!

48 hours into Challenge #2 and the feedback is that it is just too hard. The feedback we received from Challenge#1 was “too easy”. This is not the story of the “Goldielocks and the 3 Sourcing Gurus” and you are hoping to find Challenge#3 too be 'just right'.

We have been intentionally elevating the complexity level of each challenge to ensure that we get only THE BEST OF THE BEST for the final showdown in Atlanta. I can give you a few hints to…

On Google being a Web 2.0 parasite...

Quote for the Day: Tuesday, July 17th, 2007

"Take Google, for example, the economic paragon of a truly successful Web 2.0 media company. With a market cap of approximately $150 billion, the Silicon Valley company took in $6.139 billion in revenue and $1.465 billion in profits in 2005. Telling is the fact that unlike companies such as Time Warner or Disney that create and produce movies, music, magazines, and television, Google is a parasite; it creates no content…
