I’ve covered several topics in my posts that were aimed towards helping decision makers select the right applicant tracking system. Each of these posts, with a bit of modification, could really be applied to any sort of solution. The purpose of software after all is to simplify processes, reduce costs/time, and align objectives with overall organizational goals. I have never seen a vendor that promised their solution would drain your money and cause you headaches, however, I see this all of the… Continue

There is an official definition for unemployment that everyone can find at the Bureau of Labor Statics (BLS.gov). However, because unemployment, and employment calculations do not count all peoples, and have a limited view of the labor force for reporting numbers, they inadequately capture our potential problems.
We should consider the additional indicators when assessing our Labor Market problems, and the BLS does have some addition stats they consider, but the system as a whole… Continue

All the brouhaha over lay-offs and pink slips is finally coming to an end, whether temporarily or for next few years, only time will tell. I recently graduated with an MBA and the speculation whether the economy is picking up was driving me to an edge. The only solace was that there were more people like me around – people sitting at Starbucks with their laptops open and job alerts popping on their screen and speaking to headhunters for “relevant” opportunities.
However, what I… Continue

I received few days back a candidate Video Resume who is interested for international opportunities and his skill sets was a perfect match for one of my requirements. His video resume gave me an additional bonus to make him stand out from other candidates.
The legal aspect always comes up immediately when it comes to Video Resume in North America. Employers cannot discriminate against an applicant on the basis of race, color, religion, sex,… Continue

Naming a career site is something everyone thinks they can do – but few do well. Sorry, folks, it’s true. A good name is hard to find (and a good URL is even harder).
Well, you may ask, why? Let me suggest that these names come in 3 basic flavors, each presenting its own particular set of benefits and problems.

Over the last two days I connected with 6 long time friends and former colleagues in corporate recruiting. A few of them have been clients and a few others are professionals in the corporate recruiting space that I routinely chat with about various issues, challenges, strategies and tactics. Pretty much these are open discussion sessions where I learn a ton from each of them and… Continue

Employers need to ask themselves: "Are we missing out on some very talented, very experienced candidates in these other MBA populations?" The answer is yes. Over the past few years, the gap has closed between the full-time MBA student and these experienced part-time, evening, executive and alumni MBAs. Companies are sitting on an amazing pool of talent. And it's reachable though MultiPost job postings and in searchable online resume books

If done correctly, resumes AND job posting are the most effective. While resumes allow you to get deeper and more hands-on in the recruiting process, MultiPost job postings
can do that work for you. Searchable resume books
will help you find the best candidates and the best matches "on paper." But job postings will bring you the candidates who are actually interested in your job opening. And even in this… Continue

This is a very important question before any company hires a Recruiter. Some Recruiters are trapped in this question because they have trouble tracking numbers and activity?

It has been a long time since I’ve had a new post. The truth is that I’ve been swamped. I’m experiencing a massive influx in ATS activities. One of the biggest questions I’ve been asked in the last few weeks revolves around the number of companies using applicant tracking systems. While I have a solid understanding about market segments in the US, I would like to gain further insight of applicant tracking systems used on a global scale. From this information, I would like to do some “fun stats”… Continue
