to our lives today. I saw a question over on LinkedIn recently that asked what out-of-the-box things can we do to get a job. All the same yadda-yadda: network, network, network advice. I’m thinkin’ beyond that about those of us who are doing things we never thought we’d be doing and what lessons those things are teaching us. I hope you’ll join in the discussion. Noon, EST SHARP
There’s new content on the MagicMethod site – I think some of it might be of interest to you!
Have your receivables extended out beyond normal?
Are you working outside your career/industry?
Do you think social networks will drive hiring in the future?
Is your income up/down this year over last?
Where do you think people will be looking to move in the next ten years?
Why is the phone so important these days?

I’ll see you all tomorrow in class!
“Turbulence is life force. It is opportunity. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.” ~ Ramsay Clark…
talent communities are a pipe-dream for many. They take work and they take smarts because - as you intimate -its going to need something special to keep them engaged
But you are wrong if you think its impossible. Also you miss the mark here "They're looking for a new job.". thats the point! You are building a community mostly of people who are NOT looking for a job...right now...but might be...one day.At Firebrand I believe we are starting to build a real community. 50,000 twitter followers between the FB twitter stream and senior staff. And they are targeted followers in our space . When we tweet one of our blogs (Firebrand blog, not me) we get maybe 150 -250 Rts. 30,000 people reading the blog a month (FB not mine), 20,000 people entered their data in our on line community salary survey too etc etc..that is a BIG audience of people who know us, and like us a "talk" to us. We calculate 10 candidates a week approach us for a job - DIRECTLY from this community. They may have engaged with us for a year or more before we get the DM "Hey guys thinking of moving, got any cool UX gigs going?"
That is GOLD…
out "61% - 60% - 59% - 57% - 53%" in the middle of the series? Downward, no? Actually NO when taking the series in total.
72-72-72? Do you realize that a number could be the same as the previous year but there are still more people on the Internet?
Mark my words? Do you also play the Lottery?
KarenM / Hirecentrix.com said:72, 72, 72, is stagnant no?
You know that I am looking at job boards? now that is total B.S - I don't A) look at job boards, nor do I have a job board membership - ask your friends at CareerBuilder or Monster, and they will tell you that i have even turned Down free access.. Thanks... so, your question is not applicable
and again, my comments is based upon the Percentage of growth - which demonstrates that No, the comments based upon the fact that EVERYONE can be found on the internet is fallible and inconclusive
and that one day EVERYONE will be on the internet, or found in regards to Recruiting/Sourcing..
Because my comments isn't just based Upon the NUMBERS, but ALSO based upon the Numbers AND demographics AND what individuals are doing on the internet.
You take them each apart and separate, you will obtain the Information What you want to find and dissect Steve, but if you look at them ALL with Logical COMMON SENSE you will see a trend.. the internet will soon Not be the save all for sourcing and recruiting and good old fashioned recruiting will be the saving grace for tpr's -- Individuals are demanding Privacy, respect for their privacy, and they are also shutting down with regards to having information out for the world to see
Soon the interenet will be Only a resource for information, as more and more privacy is respected.. A perfect example of this can be found here Advertiser tracking (Behavioral advertising) of Web surfing brings suits based upon Privacy concerns http://twurl.nl/xmjbwq
Again, please look at the Message not the LITERAL Context -- that the Interenet Will Not be the Recruiting Tool of the future as it is today!
I guarantee this.. and mark my words this 3/2/2009 - that you will see this occur w/in the next 5 years
Steve Levy said:"...even with your numbers, the numbers became stagnant within the last couple of years - we saw tremendous growth as would be anticipated in the beginning, then it slowed considerably, till the last couple of years, to which it has been in Single digits each year." From the Pew data - and I'm reading from the spreadsheet I posted earlier, "Used Internet Yesterday" 60% - 55% - 52% - 50% - 56% - 59% - 56% - 51% - 61% - 60% - 59% - 57% - 53% - 58% - 57% - 57% - 56% - 59% - 55% - 52% - 54% - 55% - 53% - 58% - 57% - 60% - 65% - 63% - 66% - 66% - 64% - 65% - 69% - 68% - 72% - 70% - 72% - 72% - 72% If we had looked at earlier periods, we also see stagnation - quite a few years when it was single digit growth - but as more data was collected, we saw the trends. Your statement makes no sense when looking at the data.
write about something you know something about or at least interview a few people who do know something about your subject before you write it, not after.
We do not get to know people over a long period of time. Any newbie who tried to do that would be out the door in 30 days.
Recruiters have to be judgemenal people, able to evaluate candidates on several different levels with limited interaction.
Sales is not crass.
We do not have to like or have any kind of affection for either our candidates or our clients. The mark of a good recruiter is being able to place a qualified candidate whom we personally, genuinely do not like and be able to separate our personal prejudices from our business judgement. Any idiot can represent someone they really like. Good recruiters handle, manage and evaluate business situations and people to solve problems. Pushy recruiters fail period.
One of the most successful recruiters I have ever known lives on the island of Maui. He never met a candidate, never talked with a candidate by phone, resumes were submitted via fax as were job reqs. He hated people and social situations but he knew a good petroleum engineer when he saw the resume. Placed them all over the world. He retired last year. Still doesn't use email. Just the fax , ma'am.…
