"Wireless Jobs" Group on LinkedIn Hits 10,000 Member Mark

View Dennis Smith's profile on LinkedIn

I was told by LinkedIn that they are capping my "Wireless Jobs" Group at 10,000 members. Knowing that, it's pretty safe to assume that the group will be capped before the end of the day as it's only 2 members shy of 10k.



I've already sent an email petitioning the powers-that-be to extend the cap to 15k, but I've not… Continue

LinkedIn - how much is it worth? And are UK recruiters using it to its full potential?

Linkedin - how much is it worth?



As the BBC reports, LinkedIn have raised £27 million from investors - valuing the 5 year old business at a billion dollars. Not bad going.



Trick here is going to be what exactly LI are going to use the funds for. Clearly they're in a great position already with first mover advantage in the online business networking space. What I find notable about LinkedIn is that they are one of the… Continue

Dream Job

For starters, it’s helpful to remember that our dream-job requirements often change over time. One job I held in my youth was a dream job at the time but would be impossible for me now because of the working hours. When I was twenty-something and single, I was perfectly happy to sit in a conference room with my workmates, eating cold pizza and talking shop at 8 p.m. Couldn’t, wouldn’t consider that now.



You may have longed for a management role at one time and realize now that’s the… Continue

Shiny Red Apples and Big Red Tomatoes

Inspired by Joel Cheesman's post about ERE and RecruitingBlogs.com



It's apples and oranges. They are not the same. They don't function the same. the expectations for everyone involved are not the same. They are two very different brands and brands evoke feeling. The feeling between the two is different.



I'm not surprised that ERE is launching a Ning network for the Fordyce Letter. The thing about Ning and the… Continue

Resume 2.0?

Domain names are cheap. Websites are pretty easy to develop. There's a proliferation of sites in the social & professional networking scene that allow fairly lengthy profiles to be built. Recruiters are using all of these media to dig deeper into our candidates lives already. We all know this stuff. The question is, when do you think document that we know now will replaced as the "king of resumes"? I don't think they'll ever completely go away, but there is a time in the not so distant… Continue

Tick Tock

My six year old son has actually been known to yell at the clock at bedtime as if that damn clock is the culprit that is making him go to bed at 8:00 pm. “Nooooo! It can’t be 8:00 yet! I still need to ride my bike some more!!!”



Like him, I’d love an extra few hours in the evening to spend as I like. The sad news is, I’d probably spend it watching Jackie Warner and the gang on Work Out for that time instead of doing something productive like learning a new language or practicing the… Continue
