One of the documents I'm working on is a listing of search engines that I use and what the functionality or specialty is of each.

You have a blank check AND infinite influence. What are the two changes in your recruiting world you would most like to see occur. And, if these two changes did occur, you would see them have a positive influence on:

Microsoft Shows Its Hand
by Steve Baldwin , Monday, June 2, 2008

It is, of course, Microsoft's Live Search Cash Back, the first of what promises to be a series of "disruptive" initiatives designed to derail Google's overwhelming, yet ever-growing dominance in search (now… Continue
