Niche job boards: how to find them

Much has been written about the big 3 job boards as a place to find work. But those sites are just a small slice of the available job market. In the past few years companies and recruiters have begun shifting their jobs to many niche job boards - local or industry specific sites and online communities. Recruiting today is all about location and quality of hire.



Thats why these niche sites are so popular. Many charge much less (for job postings) than the big… Continue

What is Talent???

He was nothing less than extraordinary. It’s been more than a decade that I last saw him, and in all these years I have not come across a more talented person than him. And the best part is, he makes talent look simple, and not complicated.



He topped the University in MBA and got the gold medal. He set a record of 5/5 CGPA. But strangely, I never saw him reading the books. He was early to bed. You can always find him chatting up with friends.



He did not seem to have any… Continue

The Magic of Recruiting by Splitting a Role

Fast-tracking the recruitment process, without taking the time to fully understand all the role requirements, can often distract recruiters. This dilemma was again highlighted to me recently, after a coffee meeting with a recruiter friend, who was asked to fill a difficult role.



Companies may often struggle to fill a role without being able to attract the right candidates. Sometimes, this could be a strong signal for the role to be redesigned.



A lot of my early HR… Continue

Planting a Resume Garden

Many candidates are not told this, but how they distribute their resume can contribute greatly to the response they receive from prospective employers. To demonstrate this I will use the analogy of a garden to show your resume's relationship to the job market.



In this example you should consider each copy of your resume as a seed with the potential to grow your ideal job. The soil is represented by the places where your resumes end up, such as companies, organizations, job… Continue

Premier Colleges Collaborative Alumni Job Fair: Chicago, Illinois!

Hello friends and friends of friends and friends of friends of friends (networking humor. terrible, I know).





I want to just post a quick blog this week about MyWorkster’s second collaborative job fair for alumni. As you may know, our first was in New York city this past June and was an incredible success. Two of those participating schools, Indiana & Notre Dame, just couldn’t wait to duplicate the event, but in a neighboring… Continue

Pay per posting vs. pay per response

For the past 15 years, the job board industry has been dominated by the ‘pay per posting‘ revenue model: an employer purchases a job posting (and sometimes resume access or other add ons).



Yet there’s another model that has been around a while: ‘pay per response‘. In other words, you post your job, and when job seekers apply to your job, you pay for each application.



On the surface, it seems that pay per response would be more attractive to most employers – after all, if… Continue

Recruiters - How are you going to finish the year?

I posted this yesterday on my personal blog and then realized something. Recruitingblogs gets thousands of hits a day. MY SITE doesn't even get half that! SO here it is. If it inspires even one person then I'm glad I dragged it over here too!

Few things refresh the spirit like a handful of sendouts. It’s pretty easy to relax a bit when you’ve got some activity on your desk. As I sit here with 4 sendouts on the books –… Continue

Help!...I’m drowning in Resumes.



Trevor Smith, http://hire-right.blogspot.com 10/01/09



With the current economic situation having such a heavy influence in today’s job market and candidate pool, employers and even recruiters are seeing more job seekers in the available talent pool. Who among us hasn’t posted a new opening on a job board or other vehicle only to get to work the next morning with an inbox full of hundreds (literally) of resumes? If your experience has been… Continue

The Flip Side of Applicant Tracking

The situation is all too familiar: a job seeker gets their hopes up about landing a position with a company, only to never hear back from the them. About three years ago I experienced this situation and wasn't willing to wait anymore.



When I first moved to San Francisco, I applied for a job at an *unnamed* internet start up,which was backed by a major venture capitalist who had his hands in several other successful projects. I made it through the Craigslist resume cattle call and was… Continue

Rules of Engagement In a Job Search

In military terms, the Rules of Engagement determine when and how much force should be applied to a given situation. The amount of force applied varies with increasing intensity depending on the level of resistance that the troops are coming up against. An example of how to respond to a level 3 resistance according to the US Marines' ROE goes as follows:



Level 3:… Continue

Recruitment Strategy Development - Impressive Interviewing

You can imagine what a daunting task it is to write a blog on a topic that has generated enough books to pave the way from St. Louis to San Diego. However since this blog is another in the series of high level blogs on Recruitment Strategy Development, it must be done.



Is interviewing taken seriously in corporate America? If it were, hiring managers would be trained to be more effective in the interviewing process. As a matter of fact, trained and “certified” hiring managers from… Continue

Memory Lane from a Michael Jackson song....



My kids have been caught up in the Michael Jackson tributes and my son in particular will harass me every day in the car... "Daddy, can you put on Michael Jackson please?"



I'm not sure how, but I didn't know this song. "PYT... Pretty Young Thing" it amused me. When I did a really, REALLY short stint as a R2R person, this is one of the key phrases one particular (short lived) client would use to describe what they wanted me to find for them. Sales history,… Continue

Why manage Candidate Experience?

For the good recruiters handling candidate experience is a natural talent. Some thing they do as part of the recruitment process with or without being conscious of it. A great candidate experience helps the recruiter in more than one way.



Better Screening

First of all, the candidate opens up more than he/she would usually do. So recruiter gets to know more about the candidate, his needs and aspirations, strengths & limitations, hot buttons or even red flags and this… Continue

Job Boards and networks for analytic recruiters

The metric used to determine the price category ($$$ = high, $$ = medium, $ = low) is based on the average number of page views per job ad, as well as cost and duration (30 / 60 / 90 days). Internet traffic volume (*** = high, ** = medium, * = low) is based on metrics computed by Alexa, Compete and Quantast in September 2009.
