obal staffing industry. 2009 and 2010 were tough years for that industry as corporations reduced their temporary and contract workforces and Bond's revenues reflected that cycle. In 2011, the staffing industry and Bond's revenues are rebounding as corporations are contracting for more temps and contractors until the economy stabilizes and full-time hiring ramps up again.From a profit margin point of view, Bond decided to continue our robust product development efforts through out the Great Recession in order to have new solutions available in 2011, rather than wait as some companies have. As a result, we are releasing in 2011 new versions of our 3 dominant staffing industry solutions (Adapt, eEmpACT, Staffsuite) AND we are releasing new versions of Bond Talent 2.0 for Corporate HR, Bond VMS Consolidator for our staffing/corporate clients and Bond Vantage for executive search firms. Those investments of 15-20% of revenues during the recession did have an impact on our margins, but our stockholders were all aware of that aggressive investment decision.I hope this answers your question and gives you some new insights into Bond International Software.Sincerely, Tim…

s a rare find.
You wonder why I call to tell you about candidates that you don't want. Why don't I wait for you to contact me? I am a proactive recruiter. There are many reasons to work proactively, perhaps mergers or acquisitions have caused key people to rethink, failed financing, reduced bond ratings, changes in corporate structure, etc.
I contact prospective clients and offer ideas that could have an impact on the organization. I don't care if there is an opening or not. I'm not interested in a job order.
All I know is that I may have a scientist for you who created a blockbuster for your competitor. That one patent caused your company to lose market share. He is disgruntled, and open to opportunity. The reason I won't ever call you, Katie, is because I'm not looking for job orders.
I call the person who is hurting because your company lost market share. I call the person who might know this scientist by name. I am not trying to 'go around' you. I respect your job. But, you are not in a position to create a job for this scientist.
The confusion began when everyone started calling themselves recruiters. I am a recruiter. But, pro-active recruiting is a large part of our business.
Human Resources is reactive. Inside recruiters are reactive.
Katie, you are in a reactive situation. You fill job orders. If recruiters are calling you with candidates that you don't want, of course you might be hostile. You don't understand what they are trying to do.
If I call you with a pro-active situation, and you are hostile because your job is a reactive one, then I am a fool, not you. You have every right to be sending dear john letters to me. I wasted your time and mine.…
