Where "Math" Intersects with Recruiting/Sourcing & Weapons Systems, Talent Pools & Terror Cells

Originally posted at my blog here.



Earlier this morning, I stumbled upon an extremely interesting overview of a "Mathematics Event" presentation offered at the 2010 AAAS (American Association for the Advancement of Science).…

Unemployment Extension News

February 11 Update: The latest version of the bipartisan Senate Jobs bill includes a three month unemployment extension. The legislation, if passed, would extend the federal Extended Benefits Program, the Federal Additional Compensation (extra $25 per week) benefits, and the 65% Cobra health insurance subsidy through May 31. However, a vote on the legislation is not expected until the week of February 22 at the earliest and the current extension expires on February 28.

JobDeck by the people that brought you Twitter

So by the people who brought you Twitter, we get JobDeck. A portal that brings all the jobs that are twittered about to one place. But how good is this product really? Well I used it several times to do searches and get an idea how to use it and how well it works. I found it did a decent job of sorting out all the tweets and only bringing the ones that appeared to be jobs matching my criteria to me. But to me it is like any SEO. The biggest…

Hiring Managers do not understand recruiting

As a rule most hiring managers do not understand recruiting. They think all we do is look at Monster or Hotjobs (which was just bought by monster) or the other databases and find people with no problems. They do not understand the amount of work that goes into the sourcing part of recruiting. One way I have found that has helped me educate the hiring manager, is to arrange sourcing sessions with them. Make an appointment to meet with them and talk about the opening and source. You will be…

Are mobile Sales & Recruiting apps for real?

The Stage



The Apple AppStore has over 100,000 iPhone applications. Verizon's Droid is a a few months old and Google just launched the Nexus One. Microsoft has Windows Mobile and the Palm has the hot new Palm Pre. The current king of Mobile Business is the Blackberry (RIM), but it is losing ground fast. Apple, Microsoft, Google, Palm, Verizon & RIM all going after the same market and that makes for great headlines.

Are You Measuring Social Recruiting?



What are you doing to measure your social recruiting efforts? Because if you aren't doing anything to measure them and you're telling the world that social recruiting works then you're just winging it. Or if you aren't putting any effort in place to try and account for your efforts while squaking to your peers and colleagues that it doesn't work - well, you're equally as… Continue

You have just been “Bought” online!!!!

Well guys (gals too) – how does that sound? Weird? Unreasonable, so on…. Search Engines like Google and Yahoo has just figured out that it is possible too. And why not? It is web 2.0 and everything is so easy.



I recently put my name on google.com “sarang brahme” and was surprised to see my name in their sponsored listing section. For people who do not know what is sponsored listing in Google (popularly called ADWORDS in SEO language) – these are the paid listings which have been… Continue

Recruiters - What will become of us?

I recently read a blog which talked about how social media and networking sites were going to be the death of the recruiter. I disagree, if anything I believe the role of recruiter has become ever more important, but has also changed.



The argument in this blog was that the internet has enabled accessibility to candidates that would never have been possible before the internet revolution. Therefore by posting a few ads and doing some poking around on LinkedIn HR team can now source… Continue

Did Someone Tweet They Needed A Job?

RecruiterGuy on Twitter I find Twitter fascinating. I see it as many different things ranging from a search engine to an instant messaging device to a blogging platform to a time suck. And while these are just a few of the things that I myself have used it for - I love them all.



One of the first things recruiters have been struggling to understand since it's release is if… Continue

Intuition in Recruitment - A £Multi-million gamble!

How often do we do things that just feel right? We don’t know why we do them, we probably can’t explain why but we just know it’s right. It’s been the same in recruitment for years. Recruitment consultants will tell you they get a gut feel when meeting a candidate; that they somehow know when they find someone who is right for their client, but how reliable is ‘gut feel’?



I must admit, I definitely do experience gut feel. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a woman – after all aren’t we… Continue

Tutorial Tuesday....Rehab, Running, Amy Winehouse and your Sourcing Strategy....

Last time I wrote for Recruitingblogs.com, I suggested you pull your sourcing skeleton out of the closet. This month I have rehab on my mine. And that Amy Winehouse song is echoing...



Rehab occurs to me because I run. Or lately, I hobble. Had a series of minor injuries this year with the last being a pulled hip muscle. Every time I get an injury, there's a rest period, rehab and rebuilding my running program, from square one. I hate it. I like to run, it helps me focus and is a huge… Continue
