The internet has been experiencing a massive
amount of duplicate job content over the past couple of years. No question this content has been used to help job seekers find jobs, unfortunately it has also been used to leverage traffic using duplicative content, extract job seeker information and create many other issues

A while back
I examined the recruiting value of Twitter and its possible effects on job boards. Since then, Twitter has kept growing at a torrid pace, the economy continues to slide, and most job boards are happy if their revenues are only down 20 or 30 percent. I thought it was time to take another look.

Professional resume writing services offer the promise of putting together a top-notch resume for job seekers. While I don’t doubt there intentions, I do believe that you can put together an equally professional resume for a lot less money! Not $100…not $80…not $50….how about zero dollars!! That’s right, you can design a world-class resume (just like the pro’s) and it won’t cost you a dime. Here’s how:
· Forget the age old rule that a resume should be only one page long. Your career,… Continue

I am working with a company listed on the NYSE -36 yrs in business. They are expanding and looking for people who would like to earn extra income working p/t or f/t. It is a PLAN B OPTION. As a recruiter, and jobs are limited, I am offering others a PLAN B...
Why is network marketing not a viable option when it's no more secure than working in corporate America..

and I have logged a lot of hours on the phone solidifying a solid relationship based on the the love of two fundamental addictions in our life we both have. The first is recruiting and the second is domain names.
Two weeks ago Harry calls me up and says I just bought a really good domain name. I'm jealous immediately and he then shows me why it's so good but I don't need graphs or stuff to know it's good and he knows it… Continue

A recent Forbes article by Matthew Kirdahy titled “Filling the Talent Pool” begins: “The focus at private equity firms is shifting. Cash will always be king, but looking ahead, the most important type of capital may very well be human. It's a company's bold leadership that carries it into financial prosperity—not its product, services or numbers.” This new focus on talent will surely improve the success rate of acquisitions, which is typically rated at less than 50 percent.

As I wrap up a social recruiting campaign with a client (and yes, links will come once it launches...tomorrow), I thought I'd write about building an in-house promotion campaign you can run to get your social recruiting campaign off the ground and running (a post I've actually never seen anyone else do before surprisingly).
So why promote in-house? The answer is obvious (hopefully): your employees are your greatest resource when building any kind of social media campaign,… Continue

As the economic condition continues in its turbulent rant and rave cycle, the consistent flow of layoffs seem to effect and detract from every sector without relief. In this, I try to look for the benefits that are offered to those employees in their transition. How do employees view their employers and how did the layoff go in terms of process and respect.
Well, to no ones surprise, least of all mine - they do not do a good job. A recent poll suggested the following figures which… Continue

I think most people feel corporate recruiters are always an impartial bunch whose sole purpose is to fill open jobs as quickly as possible with the best qualified candidates. As a former corporate recruiter, this is the principle I lived by. In speaking to people in the job market I am hearing troubling stories of corporate recruiters who may not be living up to this. This is particularly disconcerting in this… Continue

Just had a consultant interview who wants to change the rate now that the customer wants to hire them. This consultant has to go in at a lower rate than they are used to cause the customer cannot get the req approved otherwise. It is only for a short time and so this person only has to deal with these types of pay issues until the economy gets better.
Our job sure is difficult sometimes. Working with people always presents extra challenges that working at a computer may… Continue

Truly Partnering With Your IT Clients
Many IT Consulting/IT Recruiting firms seem to lack an understanding on what it means to partner with their clients’ in a long-term relationship. It seems that some firms are just concerned with billable hours and one-off placement fees than actually serving their clients true needs. A case in point was a situation I encountered at one such firm in which I was employed. I was an account manager of a financial client where we had placed a… Continue
