Tech talent is hard to find. Whenever you have a strong demand in a certain industry, new sites will launch to try and help employers find that talent. We are now witnessing a new crop of techie job sites that have a fresh approach on recruiting tech talent. As a recruiter would you try these? Here’s a look at three that caught my eye.
This is a free job board that… Continue

In a recent presentation with Dr. Charles Handler, I discovered that although both he and I focused on the ‘quality of candidates’ – as does anyone involved in recruiting – we weren’t able to find much data on exactly which recruiting techniques delivered the best quality candidates, according to HR and recruiting professionals. As I was preparing the annual Online Recruiting… Continue

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. Like its social networking cousins, Google+ has the potential to affect business, but what effect will Google+ have on the recruiting world?
We already know the benefits… Continue

Do you ever feel like your head will burst if you have to create or remember another login/password combo? Sure, your browser tries to help (at least mine does), prompting helpfully to ‘remember’ the login – usually. But that’s specific to your computer. What happens when you’re away from it? If you’re like me, you try to stick to a few combos and keep them in your head.
So what does this have to do with job boards and career sites? Plenty. If you use… Continue

Staffing Software is great, but it can’t tell you where to look for candidates in the never-ending (but always exciting) world of global staffing. I did some digging on the internet and found the top five sites (by volume) that job seekers – i.e. candidates for your staffing agency – used when they’re looking for work in 2010:
1. Yahoo! Hot Jobs: 27,900,000 monthly… Continue

If you've ever looked for a job in Australia, you will likely know that Seek's moto is that they are Australia's #1 job site and I'm not here to argue, thousands of jobs are posted daily. But I would like to point out some of the advantages to supplementing your seeking strategies with complimentary solutions!
The power of numbers

I was speaking with one of our interns the other day about the HR Technology marketplace. In particular, he asked what really differentiated one technology provider from the next as they all sounded like they did the same thing. After taking another look at the messaging on the websites, he was right. So many companies talked about the same benefits and lacked a clear unique value proposition on their site. The question is, how will a Recruiting Director be able to make an… Continue

We have heard the argument made that using business connections sites is more accurate then resumes and can even replace a past employment check, since a candidate is not as likely to lie on an online service where many friends and colleagues may see it.… Continue

Every day I peruse ERE.net, Cheezhead, Workforce, and a bunch of other sites. Why? Well, of course I’m avoiding my ‘real’ work…but I’m also trying to keep up with the ever-shifting winds of change in the HR, recruiting, and job board worlds. This task can take as little as 5 minutes – but it often sucks up much more time.
So I asked myself: does it matter? Is there really any reason to spend time that I could otherwise be devoting to my business and clients? For example, if Monster… Continue

admit it – I’m a sucker for bright shiny new technology. In fact, I’m susceptible enough that I spend a good deal of time being very critical of anything new. Why? (a) I’m weak, and (b) a lot of this stuff just disappears and you can’t remember why you liked it in the first place.
And how is this relevant to job boards and careers site? Well…almost every couple of weeks I am approached by another vendor with a ‘killer’ tool that integrates into an existing site and will drive up… Continue

Get linked. This is a very important part of website management. Exchange links. Trading links with other websites that are closely related to the subject of your website can bring you more website traffic. These are two-way links because you must provide a link to them, too, and linking to low-quality websites can threaten the credibility of yours. Only link to sites that are dead on topic, and truly help your visitors. Instead of trading links, you could also trade banner ads, half page… Continue

There is a point in a life that learning new tricks is beyond physical capabilities or mental comprehension. However, I am finding that with the advent in the wealth of social media sites an old dog like me has a great chance of learning new tricks.
For any old folk who can remember party lines, the internet can be very intimidating. Most people my age are just getting rid of their rolodexes and discovering emails. My brother sent me a message recently telling me that he is going to… Continue

The next episode in my series of blog posts about running recruitment sites that really work is now live on my main blog.
This time we discus why so many of you won't let Google read your job adverts? Clearly this is not going to help you get more traffic - quite the opposite.
You need as many pages in Google as you can get, all with great content that your job seeker might actually be searching on.…
