ur Clients) in such a fashion that we change or confirm the opinion of our candidates about the virtues (or lack, thereof) of changing jobs to a clients' company.
Moreover, sending beautifully crafted Haiku to candidates about job opportunities is not 'stalking'.
What is this stuff about 'dopamine' you are writing about? Whatever happened to seratonin or adrenaline? I'm a seratonin fan, myself... but oxytocin is pretty cool, too.…
hiring manager really only cares about how their passion will benefit the company.
I totally agree that being yourself is important in determining whether or not you are a fit for the company so understanding as much as you can about the culture and the people is essential. And elaborating IS key, but make sure that you are elaborating about something they want to hear, something that shows how you have the ability to effect the company’s bottom line. I share more tips for preparing for interviews in my recent blog “Distinguish Yourself – Interviewing Tips for Job Seekers” which can be found at http://springboard.resourcefulhr.com/?p=1935…
oud computing is if you've read much about it lately. Seems the marketing gurus have twisted it a bit to mean "anything on the web" but that neglects those things about cloud computing that are new and special to the industry.
Cloud computing is about building systems in the cloud. There are lots of systems on the web now that aren't cloud computing, hotmail, gmail, salesforce, even hotjobs... these sites don't fit the technical definition of cloud computing, but they are computing in the cloud -- so to speak -- and the marketing people think those are cloud computing, but they aren't. Cloud computing is about scalability and end user enablement. It's about automatically scaling sites to support new users instantly. It's about servers never crashing under load again. It's about not having to think about servers at all! You build your sites on the web, you use them on the web, you customize them on the web and you never download anything. It's so exciting, I can barely contain myself!
So what I think about cloud recruiting? I think of it as building a system, on qrimp of course that will help me find, manage, and track recruiting opportunities. We are a special business and it takes a really in depth technical savvy to be productive in this space.
What would I do? I'd build a recruiting site. I'd put up tests so I can see how much applicants know about the companies, industries, and details of the job they are applying for. I'd quickly create a new test for every job post. If they pass the test, they can submit their resume. If they don't, we'll give them a special message that they don't qualify for this particular job, but based on their answers, I'd find some other positions they would be qualified for.
I could save these questions and when a new opening comes up and I need to find someone, I'll just quickly add the relevant questions. If you are looking for a nurse, what does a nurse need to know? Which certifications do they need?
If applicants answer specific questions, it will help me find them better later and communicate with them. Job applicants can sign up for notifications for new job posts that might suit them.
Of course, you could sign up for some existing system in the cloud and pay the fees or you could tailor a system specifically for YOUR type of recruiting. That's the power of cloud computing and that, to me, would be my definition of cloud recruiting.
Glad to find you again Jim. Hope things are well.

When i came to work on Monday morning the sheep was in my office and the check was on my desk. Neither one of us ever talked about it. The word about that one got around with the cattle guys and the oilies. I have never had a collection problem with any of them since.…
