more a meet in the middle, really) is maybe a tablet. A good tablet will have a decent size screen and probably a USB port and maybe even a keyboard so really functions as a mini-PC anyway.
Candidates should be able to set up searches / email alerts and maybe "save" jobs to go back and apply to, but I can't see anyone seriously doing a real job application on a phone.…
ulse of leading-edge recruiting technology by any definition, I'm not completely isolated and ignorant of what's going on in that area. (After all, I read RBC!) I think if there were SOMETHING like a LI-killer starting to come around, I would have heard at least rumors of it, and if not me, somebody like Matt who does have his fingers on the pulse (or around the neck) of leading edge recruiting tech almost certainly would have heard.
I’ve used a couple of those that you've mentioned, and one in particular would be a good substitute for LIR IF ALL YOU NEEDED WERE SWES- it costs about as much as a LIR seat. I still haven’t seen something that has hundreds of millions of various types of (business-oriented) profiles easily accessible in one place. (I also use Boolean Google searches and boards.)
“What's the issue?” As I said earlier, the suit may be completely full of merit- that's not my concern here. Some of MS suits had merit, too.
"Do you want to spend money on InMails to phony profiles?" WE ALREADY DO, and with the complete backing of LI:
Whenever I reach out to someone, I look to see if they are open to an opportunity based on their status. (I don't reach out to them if they've indicated they're NOT open.) However,* THE VAST MAJORITY OF PEOPLE WHO SAY THEY ARE OPEN, REALLY AREN'T. Why not? Because you have to "opt out" of that (and perhaps other ) categories- if you don't it shows you're open/interested. Consequently, I spend much of my time and companies' InMail credits on people who:
1) Aren't going to get back to me to say they're not interested (in anything, not just my particular position) or
2) Do get back to me to say they're not interested and use up my company's InMail credits.
*Based on my experience of sending THOUSANDS of InMails out over time. Your results may vary. Void where prohibited.
ve a religious debate with the leader of the Jewish community. If the Jews won, they could stay in Italy; if the Pope won, they'd have to convert or leave.
The Jewish people met and picked an aged and wise rabbi to represent them in the debate However, as the rabbi spoke no Italian, and the Pope spoke no Yiddish, they agreed that it would be a 'silent' debate.
On the chosen day the Pope and rabbi sat opposite each other.
The Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.
The rabbi looked back and raised one finger.
Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head.
The rabbi pointed to the ground where he sat.
The Pope brought out a communion wafer and a chalice of wine.
The rabbi pulled out an apple.
With that, the Pope stood up and declared himself beaten and said that the rabbi was too clever. The Jews could stay in Italy.
Later the cardinals met with the Pope and asked him what had happened.
The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up a single finger to remind me there is still only one God common to both our beliefs.
"Then, I waved my finger around my head to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us.
"I pulled out the wine and water to show that God absolves us of all our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of the original sin. He bested me at every move and I could not continue."
Meanwhile, the Jewish community gathered to ask the rabbi how he'd won.
"I haven't a clue," the rabbi said. "First, he told me that we had three days to get out of Italy , so I gave him the finger. Then he tells me that the whole country would be cleared of Jews and I told him that we were staying right here."
"And then what?" asked a woman.
"Who knows?" said the rabbi. "He took out his lunch so I took out mine."…
