Where do job descriptions go to die?

I wish I could find a lovely place to send job descriptions to die.

You know what I want instead? Job clouds.

Doesn't that sound lovely?

A job cloud is a lovely, puffy arrangement of projects and functions that need to be completed in order for a company to be successful. Job clouds can overlap across functional areas as the needs of the company change and the people in each cloud can change as their experience and education…

CareerBuilder Says - Social Networking Shall Not Be Cheap

I was finally happy to see that CareerBuilder is building something for recruiters and it's going to be expensive. I read about it on ERE and essentially, Careerbuilder will build you a talent network. It seems they are the first to admit that it can be done without their help but of course if someone wants to help, why not. Help can be good.

I'm not going to describe what it is they… Continue

What happended to determining scope, excercising moderation and common sense ROI...

I like and agree with the post except the job board and ATS graveyard comment.

Everything in our (recruiters, sourcers, talent acqusition specialists, headhunter, whatever title you go by etc.) arsenal has it's place: university recruitment, job boards, ATS systems, etc.. As we globally compete to hire the "best of the best" (quote from the movie The Men in Black) for our customers, clients, etc. we need to look at the process like a doctor selecting the right prescription for…

Do You Hold Out on SPEAKING UP at Work?

Figuring out when to speak up in the workplace can be tricky: maybe you were asked about something controversial and were afraid to speak about it or maybe someone wanted constructive criticism and you chose to keep to yourself instead. Do you know what you would do in situations like these? People usually don’t speak up because of fear of risk and specifically, fear of offending those above them. Employees who are afraid to speak up and communicate ideas at work may miss out on amazing…

"It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown!"

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to incorporate one of the season’s classics into our Movie Quote Mondays. For many “Halloween” with Jamie Lee Curtis or “Fright Night” or “Twilight” may be more in keeping with the season, but Linus in his pumpkin patch is one of my all time favorites. It’s a tossup between “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” and “Merry Christmas Charlie Brown” but we will get to that in another season.

There were many who decided to do a reflection of the major…

I posted a blog about this young man here and was quite surprised by the discussion that… Continue
