Don't you just "love" our exclusive network?

Since today is February 14th, I decided to take a more lighthearted look at our exclusive network of employers and talent to see just how much "love" we really have for you. The findings were particularly rosy and sweet.

  • 106 MBAs with "love" in their name
  • 51 MBA-required job postings that mention "love"

How Will Google+ Affect Staffing and Recruiting?

Within 2 weeks of its launch, Google+ had more than 5 million users, according to a recent article in PC World, and was the hot topic for days on technology blogs, business sites, and Facebook and Twitter feeds. That’s nowhere near the 200 million members of Twitter or 750 million of Facebook, but give it time.

Using LinkedIn to Find Recruiters

Recruiters are a great source for finding a job that will fit your need and skill set.  They help you through the interview process and try to help prepare you for your interviews.  The best thing about having a recruiter help you is that they have already done most of the leg work.  They know the right contacts for certain companies and have built relationships with the people that work there.  

Social networking is extremely important in today’s society.  It’s a good way to…

Make it a Productive Snow Day!

[Note: This was written as we are getting pelted with snow and freezing rain for the past two days in Boston]

 

As a kid, I loved snow days.  It was a free day to play outside with friends and just simply not doing anything productive.  It was just pure fun.  The problem was that instead of doing homework with some free moments during the day, I would always wait till the last minute and have a race to the finish to get it completed.

 

As an adult, I see…

But with any problem, the question is how can we solve it.  How can you create steps in your recruiting process to easily filter and pare down the candidates you receive into a nice neat pile of qualified…
