Job Seekers - Ignore Social Networking at your own peril!

45% of Employers are using Social Networking sites to research job seekers.



CareerBuilder recently polled 2,667 hiring managers about their use of social networking in the recruiting process. The results of the poll are something that every job seeker, no matter what level of experience or industry should come to understand.



The job search rules have changed. The process of simply applying with a resume, no longer exists. Employers have access to the social networking… Continue

Should job boards have resume databases?

In the beginning was the job post – a classified ad on the internet.



Then came the resume database – a collection of job seeker wit and wisdom, long and short, awful and awesome.



Employers and recruiters saw the resume database and liked it. They flourished.



Jump to now. I’m guessing that at least one-third of the job boards launched during the past year lack a resume database. What gives?…

My Social; Network

I am constantly being asked to join a “Mafia Family”. I regularly get invited to “Link into” someone’s network. And I know that “My Face and My Space” has been accepted as friend and network resource from old classmates at PS 104 to contacts of current Governors and past Presidents of the US.



Am I really popular? I don’t think so. Might I insightfully provide wisdom that will lead to a lottery’s monetary value of wealth? As the “Magic 8 Ball” would say, “It is very unlikely.” What is… Continue

Interviews Slow as Molasses

I have noticed that it is taking forever for clients to make a decision on a candidate. The candidate might be the right fit, but they have to think about it. The economy is so slow companies know they can wait, and the candidate will most likely still be out there.



I was speaking with one of those candidates, and he forwarded me a clip from a letter he rec’d from a company after his interview. You won’t believe it!



"Dear Mr. Engineer,

With some luck, the interviewing… Continue

The All New Employee Benefits Package...what do you think about NAR's bright idea???

Ezine Article by Denise R. McCoy



Employers have it tough these days. In the everchanging world of employee relations, how can you be sure that your employees are truly happy with you as an employer? Are you gauging their happiness by using the traditioanl checks and balances?



Do they show up everyday?--check! Are they well groomed?--check! Do they report to work on time?--check! Have they told you how much they appreciate their job? During the last employee review, was it… Continue

Social Media Job Search

Everywhere I turn I cannot get away from the ever evolving trend of the social networking process for job searches. Countless comments and posts speaking to the rage and what it does for recruiters and job seekers. The issue I keep finding myself looking at is the lack of a detailed strategy. How do you leverage these networks? What is the best way to connect and get tied into a company you want to work for? What if you do not have a job - how do you use these tools to land your next position?… Continue

Is ‘free’ the wave of the future for job boards?

You can’t cough these days without bumping into a ‘free’ job board, i.e., a job board where employers can post their jobs at no charge. Free job site, free Tweets, free everything. Now, there have always been a few of these boards around, but in the past year or so, it seems like they’ve been reproducing like the proverbial rabbits.



What gives? Some would argue that Free, by Chris Anderson, put a voice to a burgeoning movement: “In a marketplace with low marginal costs and many… Continue

Unifying a Fragmented Employment Industry

Many people have fallen victim to the ever fragmenting employment industry. High job board costs force companies to explore alternative avenues for advertising available positions and the scattering of jobs force job seekers to post their resume to multiple employment sites. Millions of jobs are left unfilled, millions of job seekers are left out of work, and thousands of job boards are cashing-in on the failures of both.



Overhead and value perception have created an unbalanced range… Continue
