Do quality job posting sites exist anymore?

I don't know about anyone else out there, but I have not been receiving any quality applications from my job postings. Don't get me wrong, I don't necessarily rely on these postings 100% of the time for candidates, but I expect to get a few keepers out of them.

I have been doing my usual database, LinkedIn, referral, etc recruiting with these postings on…

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

The Tribune bankruptcy might cause a major shake up in the Internet Recruiting market.

Tribune Co. is a 40% owner of CareerBuilder.

Chapter 11 bankruptcy, means the creditors, owners, and a judge have to sort out the debts, and where the money is going to come from.

[Job Seeker Blog] Other People's Money

Is it okay to just post a resume on this board or should I use that board? Should I try and find the hiring person and flood them with calls or trust that the resume screener will relay the message to the hiring manager of just how awesome I am? Do I take a headhunter seriously or take…

Video Here To Stay? A few weeks ago I was excited to share a video that I was proud to be part of. It did (and continues to do) a great job at explaining to potential job seekers what occurs in the 'day in the life of' a Premises Technician. Of noted debate from time to time is just how technical this particular brand of technician is required to be.…
