y they take their eye off the ball, they stop focusing on the markets and let something extraneous enter their decision psychology, a sure indicator of a mistake to come. Having done both trading and recruiting I think they're parallel professions and being able to make a lot today or not has no significance.…
nfusing features - it is made to simplify the hiring process and it it does so efficiently.
2. It is all online - no installation hassle or problems with access - you can log in from wherever you are to view/announce jobs, review resumes, track applicants, and make decisions.
3. Analytics are great- they actually just released a new analytics suite that lets you zoom in on exactly what is working and what isn't. I'm still trying this out and can see it should make big difference.
Hope this helps!…
esults so if you search for "java developer ecommerce" and look to the right side of the page you can sort the people from the extraneous results (sort of like in Accoona). We have added Exalead to our search engine list and will make it searchable.
I think there will always be an endless stream of search engines with great features. My goal is to create a single interface that searches all of them. The next important thing will be to aggregate ALL of the results, remove duplicates and present them to the sourcer.
Here's a question for you sourcers: If you had an engine that would crawl ALL search engines for a specific job search, aggregate the results and remove duplicates, but it took 5 minutes to first surface your results - would you use it?…
tical Corporation (the company Google bought the "Google Glass" patents from) is a former Everest climber, who wrote the book on the search for Mallory and Irvine (first team to summit Everest in 1924, but died on the descent).
He has a client who has developed a search engine that is much better than Google or Bing (much more specific, no extraneous results, searches text perfectly to find results, understands text rather than merely parsing it, etc.). The client has no money, but is looking for a CEO -- to help raise VC funding.
Any suggestions? Ideas? Has anyone successfully dealt with a scenario like this before? I ask because of the previous article on Google losing the Firefox gig, because their search engine really does suck, and better ones are inevitable and potentially valuable.
Let me also add that lots of people (my friend included) are experts at raising money... as CEO he raised 10 million pounds for a company in England under very difficult circumstances.
lowing of candidates to fill, RT and provide referrals for your jobs? Are you targeting potential clients and / or industry colleagues to market and promote your work or business? Are you using it for social / entertainment purposes? My main use of Twitter at the moment is to learn from industry leaders about Twitter as a recruiting tool and the web in general as a recruiting, job search, networking and marketing tool. In order to gain the most from my follow list, I have been selective about who I follow to keep extraneous noise to a minimum. I currently follow only 159 people. I started by following people who I already followed in the industry via blogs and webinars etc... Through them, I found other great people who were influencing them to also follow. As my following grows, I periodically review the bios, websites and tweets of my new followers and only follow back if they're tweeting new, useful and interesting posts and links about recruiting and social media. If my twitter agenda changes, my approach to tweeting and following would have to change as well to meet my end goal.…
current career marketing messaging practices and generally too lazy to research what may have changed since they last used that resume in 1993.
When I see an objective on a resume. I envision a guy (or gal) with a mullet hair style, wearing a Members Only jacket and strutting around with a fully extended metal antennae on their brick-sized cell phone before hopping into their Ford Pinto.
So, in other words, I find objectives "objectionable," completely irrelevant and out of fashion. NO ONE cares about your career goals and aspirations and how wonderfully you think you will be as member of our team. And, objective or not, using first person language on a resume makes it read like it was written by an 11 year old, not a business professional.
What most resume recipients expect to see is relevance to the position being pursued. The resume should be concise, error-free, well-formatted and organized in an aesthetically pleasing easy to skim/scan layout. Extraneous information (including objectives) is distracting and wastes space.
All content should demonstrate appropriate knowledge, skills, abilities and competence worthy of the reader's attention and make it clear that the person is qualified to be considered further for the position being filled.
The primary goal of resume is to get the person an interview. Therefore, it needs to be immediately and abundantly obvious to the reader that the person "gets it." I've never seen an objective that added any value in that regard.

we want to get the word out to telephone sourcers that pretty soon we may have some work we'll be able to share with you on an Individual Contractor basis. This means we will pay you on a per-name basis to do telephone sourcing for us. Your expenses will be your own and your work is expected to be excellent. If all this sounds like something you can live with send me an email at maureen at techtrak.com along with what experience you have telephone sourcing. We want to hear what it's been and what you think you'd be able to provide in a timely basis (w/in 3-5 days) of receiving an order.
Here's what we expect:
Name - Title - Direct Phone Number (when it's possible to obtain) along with any extraneous notation you think the name deserves. We need the majority of the names you send us to be telephone sourced. (Majority usually means 90% - that's what our customers expect - they can do their own LinkedIn/Internet searching, for the most part.) When instructions on this differ, it will say so on the job.
Now, if you think you're one of the few sourcers in the world who can provide this (if you've been paying attention to the MagicMethod telephone names sourcing site and the information contained within it you'll have a leg-up on all this) then send us your name, bio, telephone, fax, website and email to maureen at techtrak.com.
We look forward to working with you!
