scraping, deep googling, x-raying, etc.?
2) What types of phone sourcing services do you perform- voicemail mining aka "The Slow and Dumb Method," rusing, non-ruse direct calls, etc.
Also, what kind of searches are beyond your capabilities: too hard, take too long, etc.?
If you charge a low rate, why are you as good as people that charge much more?
If you charge a high rate, why are you better than people that charge much less?
I'd like to get a general idea, let our readers know, and then start putting together a directory of sourcers.

. If not and he charges that would be the reason for all these blogs regurgitating Drue's opinion that contingency recruiters are all failing, burning out blah, blah and blah.
Bill thinks he is spot on so maybe Drue is willing to work with Bill at no charge to assist him in transitioning to retained search.…
rge anyone for a service requires a license. Recruiters who work for companies and do not charge the jobseeker do not have to have a license. Do i want to charge a jobseeker or will i? No ,that's why i left an employment agency and became a recruiter in the first place. There are not a lot of them left because companies are more efficient at advertising themselves and have internal recruiters.
The theory behind the Ladders charging job seekers was or is that if someone pays to put their information on the site they will probably not put their information on other job boards. I made multiple placements with candidates from the Ladders, used it as long as it was free to recruiters. When they started charging recruiters we dropped it. Would we have paid for it based on the placements we made of Ladders candidates? We considered it but due to the number of resumes that were years out of date, candidates who had found a job and never responded to contacts it was not worth it. As a free site to recruiters it was worth digging through the volume of outdated resumes.
I recently received an email that as a former user The Ladders was now going back to free to recruiters to post 100K jobs and review candidates. After watching that obnoxious commercial i wouldn't touch them with a 10 foot pole. It has been my experience that posting a 100K job on any of the other job boards will normally pick up most of the job seekers who do pay for the Ladders. They may not put their resume on the job boards but they do respond to postings. Linkedin groups seem to work better for us than the time spent digging through The Ladders even when it was free. We did receive some good candidates from posts on The Ladders. I want no association with any site that thinks advertising by using a guy flopped over a desk with his shirt unbuttoned makes anyone "desireable". Yuck. What three eyed genius came up with that and what fool at the Ladders approved it begs the question, "What were you drinking or smoking?". If that is supposed to convice professionals to pay for joining, it's my take that they get the award for the "missed the mark" ad or at least i don't want any of the jobseekers who think that is a great ad.…
