In a recent article published by Forbes, according to a spokesperson for the company, this is not true. I've been personally waiting for them to step up to compete with LinkedIn for awhile and glad that it appears this is starting to take shape.
What they have created is essentially a Social jobs partnership application. The page allows users to search for jobs by location, industry and skill; apply to them directly through Facebook; and then share the jobs to their social…Continue

One our rockstar sourcers recently gave a presentation on 4 twitter tools, one specifically is worth mentioning as it's newer and with the popularity of twitter, it allows you to filter.
Tweetizen is a fairly new application described as “a simple web-based tool designed to help you filter the daily influx of tweets, and easily find the ones that are relevant to you.” While Twellow groups people into categories, Tweetizen combines tweets into categorized groups. You…Continue
A lot of companies are moving away from the "Post and Pray" approach, but unfortunately, there is still a fair share of companies out there that are spending too much money on this "methodology". How many times have you talked to a client and they don't have a job description and expect you to work on the role or send you a job description with a few sentences about needing to be detail oriented?
If you think of posting a job online, think of it as a personals ad... who are you…Continue
I had a colleague send me a story last year about an experiment with monkeys.. it has always stuck in my head when I see clients and companies continue down the path of least resistance.. essentially learned behavior that is neither productive or conducive to cultivating their most valuable resource.. the employee. This analogy has two points.. ensure you evaluate a client's culture as to not find the perfect candidate to only send them off to Babylon and secondly, audit your own…Continue
There was a recent stat published on Source of Candidate, with Referrals coming in at #1 (23% of hires). I'm still amazed that there are so many companies out there that do not have a formal or even informal internal referral program.

And I'm not even done with my first cup of coffee on a Monday morning, checking through my emails.. and get this interesting email from LinkedIn:
"Based on information provided in your LinkedIn profile, you have been selected to contribute your expertise to a survey on…Continue
We've all heard the buzz around talent communities and how they are the wave of the future to beat the war on talent. First of all.. there is no standardized definition of what a talent community is. Some companies could be calling a black hole (aka ATS) their talent community and others may have a separate CRM that…Continue
I was having lunch the other day with a long time friend and she asked me what I thought about the idea of her changing careers to become a recruiter. My initial thought was to laugh as you and I both know that nobody sets out in life to become a recruiter.. in fact that is one of my favorite interview questions when interviewing a potential recruiter. "How did you get sucked in".
It's never a quick story, which is why I like it.. it shows me how this person can communicate and also…Continue
