ols in order to enable people
without advanced search knowledge to use twitter effectively for their
jobsearch. In a first attempt to do so, we created www.jobtweet.de , a basic
twitter job search engine offering an English and a German version. Try it out
and let me know whether you think twitter has the potential to turn into a
real-time sourcing/recruiting platform, if more and better jobsearch tools are made
a client of mine for a fairly standard role and apparently on 2 months notice.
Now i know this fairly common in many roles i have placed of a technical or more executive nature but for this position it seems unusual.
Anyway i will obviously attempt all the 'usual' jargon but i did wonder if anyone may have had any nifty tricks up their sleeve potentially.
.job domains were sold? Because it's NOT easier to find a company's job listings. In fact, it became more confusing. Imagine the job seeker eager to apply to, say, their favorite 20 companies and entering the company.jobs URLs...only to find that only one company even used the darn thing. Did they give up, or did they just go to the remaining companies' .com web site and click on the Careers link. How hard is that??!!!
I said it in 2005 and I'll say it now: .jobs is virtually useless…
o well done!
I'd also add to attempt to forsee what possible objections to payment might be. Slow business? The economy? Health? Life change? And be prepared to overcome these. And when legitimate reasons are offered be as reasonable as possible to make arrangements. But follow up and if the promise is broken address it right away!
Another best practice is stay educated: insideARM.com is a great resource for those dealing with accounts receivable, i.e. anyone in business.
wise not looking until the recruiter contacts them. That is why most companies have recruiters sign an agreement not to recruit from them if place into the company.
You are correct that companies have the responsibility for keeping employees engaged and happy but many a reasonably happy employee has been lured to greener pastures by a good recruiter. We are not cheating companies but we sure are regarded in a lot of cases as the "fox in the henhouse".
nowledge of the firms they basic background of the position, duties or job description, They seem to fail at follow up or clearly having no ability to effectively communicate. I can honestly say that when I was on that side of the desk the only way for me to have established a high-level of client and candidate respect is to always do the ethical thing. Sad to say that ethics is quickly fading from the industry.
Best of luck in your search.
As for your post, I agree with your premise, though I must admit, I see it in reverse. I maintain a very "open networker" position on RBC and other professional social networks ( i have never created accounts on facebook or myspace), and keep my Linked In network smaller. I see my connections on LI as people that I've actually done business with or had some ongoing professional discourse with, so that I'd be willing to recommend them.
In RBC and others, I find my connections to be of value so that I can access the great ideas out there and stay in touch with the world. I love this space. You and the rest of the contributors have done an amazing job in here. While you have 15,000 members, it still feels like Cheers in here. I am glad you're still developing it and staying engaged enough to have these kinds of thoughts. Good for you and good for us that you're doing it. Thank you.
That being said, while I would want you on my friends list, I would definitely understand if you declined. I know that I can always reach out to you with questions, and as the facilitator of this space, you've been awesome at getting back to me quickly. (thanks for the hat, by the way, I'll be posting a new picture today with my lame attempt at a Salvador Dali mustache and wearing your hat) I realize that in truth, I don't know you and you don't know me. I commend your attempt to keep your members close and your friends closer.
QUICK FUNNY LINK: In case you haven't seen this promo yet. I got this from Laurie of HRMToday. BurgerKing is having a promotion that if you "defriend" ten people on facebook, you'll get a free whopper! :
