Offers...what they are about may be changing soon

Over the last five to ten years many candidates have become very savvy when it comes to salary negotiations, and they understand that when a recruiter is talking with the company that it’s not just about the raw salary dollars, but the advantages of the overall package including everything from benefits, 401k contribution, vacation/PTO and even potential bonuses. However, after reading our last blog on… Continue

Does That Mean I Hired a Twit?

RecruiterGuy likes TwitHire Right around July 24th jobs started heading to a new board - a board where job descriptions are only allowed to be 142 characters or less. So in a world where employers are complaining that job boards don't typically give them enough freedom, one wonders why an employer might choose this one. Why would an employer want to post on what could quite possibly be the most limiting job board in existence today?

Could it be…

Job Boards Present An Even Distribution of Talent? (Um, Really?)

Over my gin & java this morning, I've been reflecting on a comment from a VP of Staffing from a huge, publicly traded staffing-firm this last week. In a nutshell, his comment was, to a degree, a defense of the major job boards. He referred to what he believed to be an "even" distribution of talent on job boards (i.e. Monster, CareerBuilder, etc.) Now, forgive me for being a little of a math-head, so I'm going to try to keep this short & simple (as I don't have too much time and there's… Continue

LinkedIn: 50 Group Membership Limit set for August 14th!

fyi - if you've failed to read all of your recent emails from LinkedIn, you might want to pay attention to this.

On August, 14th, LinkedIn will begin enforcing a limit to the number of user-created groups any LinkedIn member may be part of at one time. They are setting that limit at membership in 50 (fifty) user-created groups.

If you have membership in more than 50 Groups (as most recruiters do), you will need to take the initiative to reduce your number of groups to 50… Continue

Job Boards Obsolete? Not a Chance

There was a recent posting on the ERE Recruiting Network regarding the obsolescence of job boards.

Job Boards are not becoming obsolete. As a matter of fact it is the opposite. Job Boards, just like any other evolution, fall into a survival of the fittest game. As the industry becomes more & more competitive, the winners will be the ones that deliver results and offer the best value-added-service along with an affordable price point.

Job Boards are a by-product of the… Continue
