I first published this post earlier today on my new blog: "Social Job Search."
The blog is primarily aimed at Jobseekers, so whilst I don't usually duplicate posts, I wanted to share my research and get some reactions from recruiters. The results surprised me.
I’ve been reading some well intended posts recently from Linked In experts Neil Schaeffer and Tim… Continue

Do you use search engines to look for resumes on the Internet? Do you use exclusions such as "-jobs" or "-submit"?
If you do. Stop it.
Read on and I'll tell you why.
First a story about Easter hams.
To understand what I am going to say about searching for resumes, you will need to be in the right frame of mind. Here we go...

we imagined it would. Then something new comes along
and we think: Maybe this time things will be different! Maybe
that software will really work. Maybe this really is the

With the technological world advancing at a rapid speed, Singapore has become one of the forerunners in the race towards innovation and advancement. Following in the footsteps of California and India, it has been dubbed by Eyal Gura, founder and CEO of PicApp, as on its way to becoming the third Silicon Valley of the world.

A few weeks back I asked you to help with a job board industry survey – and you did! You answered questions about the effect of the recession on your job sites, threats to your business – and your thoughts about the future of the industry. So first and foremost, thanks!
I received 94 completed responses – which gives me considerable confidence in the results. A wide range of job sites participated, ranging in revenues from less than $500,000 to more than $10 million. Each size… Continue

Field observation is an essential component of any serious market research project, particularly in emerging markets, but it’s usually overlooked by agencies. Now, you may not have a budget for field work but if you can squeak in a trip to an emerging market I want to give you a DIY tool set you can use to get some basic understandings of the market you're interested in.
Why do market research at all? Because you don’t… Continue

I found the following post on Craigslist in several locations: http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/etc/1234727293.html
. It reads as follows:

Willy dips Skoal, hunts, drives a tractor and is missing a finger. But he has a great personality and extreme likeability factor too.
When he is not outdoors killing defenseless animals he is updating his Facebook account. We are like his livestock and he is constantly feeding us daily tidbits and photos.
The single most incredible fact about Willy is that women love him. On his wall posts women leave flirty posts and even going so far to ask him out. That’s unheard of in… Continue

As some members of RecruitingBlogs.com are aware, for the past 16 years ExecuNet has run a survey focused on the executive marketplace. It is called The Executive Job Market Intelligence Report.
It is a task that each time we do it we keep asking ourselves if we have the energy to do it again. It not only takes a great deal of time to put it together, but also an enormous amount of time in analyzing the data, and this year was certainly no exception as we had over 6,000 responses -… Continue
