I came across a newsworthy post this morning on RotorBlog,
which is a “Social Networking and Online Communications Blog” written by Andrew Rosen who is also the Founder of one of our favorite sites Jobacle.
Rosen is spot on when he states that “LinkedIn has been dominating the business social network niche, there’s nothing wrong with that since it has been able to answer the social networking… Continue

I wanted to write something short and sweet about a guy who has over time proved himself to be someone who does good for the industry. His name is Paul DeBettignies
and he lives in Minnesota.
Last year Paul started putting on a local Minnesota recruiting conference and said right from the beginning it will be done every quarter. Well, since then he has made good on that and every quarter his… Continue

Late one Friday afternoon a few years ago a client called me with a couple of IT position she needed to fill fast: CV’s reviewed next week, interviews the week after, the job to start the following week. I knew the client well, I knew exactly what she wanted and I knew the positions would be easy ones to fill. So, I posted a couple of well written job adverts on a number of IT Job Boards, comfortable in the knowledge that, come Monday morning, I’d have a plenty of good response.

There are many different opinions when it comes to this topic. In highly competitive niche industries the best talent is typically gainfully employed by your top one or two competitors. Why settle for table scraps (active applicants) when you can go after "all the fixins"? Is it more acceptable for a Corporate HR department to put this request into the hands of a Third Party recruiter? Is it unethical across the board?
Personally, I think it is the best resource for applicable talent… Continue

There is a lot of information out there about how to use Linkedin and I will admit that I've been slow to recognize the power of Linkedin.
About 6 weeks ago, I had about 20 direct connections with people that I knew well and quite frankly didn't see any advantage in Linkedin over the mulititude of social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace and others...what was the point since I was already connected to my friends on Facebook.
And then I got clued in...one of my… Continue

One of my friends found this Curriculum Vitae in a passive search. Just take a break and read this one!
Now look. I don't know what it is about recruitment agents that makes them unable to understand the phrase "I am no longer seeking work", so I have removed my CV from my website in a desperate attempt to get them to stop 'phoning me.
If you are an agent, then… Continue
