I set up a way to search LinkedIn and Yahoo groups for school and company alumni groups. I will be adding other sources of groups in the near future.
Alumni groups either for companies or schools is a great place to find possible candidates or to post jobs often at no cost.
Many allow recruiters to join even if they did not attend the school or work at the company but check… Continue

Over the last few years whenever I spoke to a job seeker about showing up on recruiters radar, I advised them to post their resume on a home page so recruiters, sourcers or hiring managers using search engines can find them
(Here is the post)
After I wrote this I found out about a free resource for both recruiters AND job seekers called Resumebucket which simply does document hosting of resumes. I have been… Continue

In my last blog, I wrote about how companies can manage through the flood of resumes that are hitting them. If it is difficult for corporate Human Resources right now, it is devastating for those looking for a job. As bleak as the picture is, there are companies that still need to fill crucial positions. So how do you become a candidate, let alone get the job?

So here we go! I have met with some fantastic organizations this past week. So far, as predicted, all have come from networking. I have received about 3 phone calls from the job boards this past week, but after calling me, the lower ranges of income that seem to be prevalent here in Utah came up within minutes of starting the conversation. As a result we… Continue

There are times in your life when you have a dawning of realization, a flash of insight - as though a veil of ignorance is parted and you see the naked truth for what it is. Sometimes these little nuggets of meaningfulness will impact you for the rest of your life. Other times, they are simple life truths that you will incorporate into your knowledge bank and draw on these items almost daily as you negotiate the twisty turny phenomenon that we call living. And then there are the moments of… Continue

You want to find a new role, a job you can really get excited about. Think beyond the jobs you see and hear about. Make it your temporary job to seek out your dream job. How?
One way is by knowing and seeking to find elearning/learning work within your area of passion/personal interests. You know, what you want to do when you retire. Research the possibilities of combining that with your current professional career. Example – if you are a learning professional, and love anything from… Continue

So many in fact that another week a has gone by and I still find myself responding to many of these emails and phone calls. (Sorry if you are one of those that I have not… Continue

So on to the weekend!
So by this time I have have already received 3 job offers. Of course, they are for 100% commission roles, so those are extremely easy to offer since there is no risk on the part of the employer in many ways. The strange part is 2 of them were offers and I hadn't even spoken to anyone yet! How strange is that?

No longer are sites like MySpace and Facebook just for college students posting their inappropriate pictures from the previous weekend, these sites now appeal to a different demographic—recruiters and employers looking to learn more about candidates they’re considering for employment.

As a recruiter I do have a great deal of sympathy for the droves of professionals being caught up in the current nationwide trend of mass layoffs. As someone who has been laid off from a job once before, I also have empathy for anyone who finds themselves caught up in a layoff situation.
However, no matter how much downsizing is happening in the market, I still proceed cautiously with a candidate who states that he or she has been laid off. . . . I can't help it, but the little "red… Continue
