A thread over on ERE's Recruiting Leadership Forum
asks the throngs Monday's question of the day, "How do you keep recruiting costs down?"
Naturally this begs a question: How many in recruiting really know and track the direct and indirect costs of talent acquisition?
How can you decrease what you don't know or track?

Are you worried about the economy yet, and how it will affect your business? If not, you should be. I'm fortunate in that my focus, technology, has not slowed down, yet. It most likely will, eventually, but at least I'll be ready for it this time.
Back in 2001, coming off the fast and furious internet boom, we initially thought the slowdown was just a blip, a bump in the road that would quickly smooth out. This internet thing was just too big to go away, right?
Needless to say,… Continue

If your like me you have an account on Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Twitter, Twhirl, TalentBar, RecruitingBlogs, WirelessJobs, Plaxo, Jobirn, Doostang, Jobthread, Spoke, Naymz, and RecruiterRockstar. Those are just the websites, my membership in user groups probably doubles that. Logging into each and every one of these sites could be a full time job. True relationship building gets lost in an effort to be the most connected.
Is it quality or quantity we are after? Or both? I am… Continue

I've had quite a few conversations over the last several years how it often appears that the same organizations seem to win recruiting awards year after year after year. Frankly, I think this is rightfully so - if you're better than the competition, you should win out. At the same time, I think that there should be a "Lifetime Achievement Award" for the consistently usual suspects :)
So this year, I noticed that OnRec

Does this program have a community full of friendly helpful members?
Does this program offer you a forum full of great information?
Does this program offer you an e-book that explains how… Continue

Hiring people used to be an easy task. Some managers and business owners that I have worked with thought that it is easier these days to recruit employees because of the rising unemployment rate. They further assert that we have a lot of surplus talents waiting to be tapped. Incidentally, that is partly true. However, while there is indeed a huge potential number of candidate employees, small businesses are still confronted with a shortage of qualified and competent employees.… Continue

Wow! I am part of so many networks that I would only have an hour/day left to work if I kept up with them all! Is this a common problem for online networkers?
I remember a heavy social life when I did most of my networking through groups and events (that time in my life is now a blur)... Though that was total chaos at times, I feel I gained better contacts and had more fun doing it... Or maybe the year I have been doing this hasn't been a fair shot... either way, the old face-to-face costs… Continue
