collecting unemployment get back to work - could be a simple resume tweak, could be a full on case management situation.
Age discrimination in most cases was a self-fulfilling prophecy. My "mature workers" as we called them always led with age. They were some of the most challenging people to work with because they were so adverse to change. Refusing to change the format of their resume, refusing to re-think their comp requirements (as noted before), refusing to update skills (also mentioned, thanks Jackie). You just can't help people who don't want to be helped. The job seekers who took our advice were the ones that landed jobs, quickly.…
er recruiters and thought leaders that interest me, news makers, local, national and industry specific (which is where I have to be careful with Twitter, I'm an info junkie and have to resist the temptation to follow every new link to a fascinating story)....and here's the key for me with Twitter, following people in the space in which I recruit, (search marketing, web 2.0, mobile/e-commerce, social networking, etc.).
I follow the 80/20 rule for the most part, meaning 80% of what I Tweet is business related content, a link to an interesting article I read and want to share, or a quick shout out on a new search. The other 20% is random fun stuff, I'm a foodie, so it may be a twitter recipe (all in 140 characters) or like yesterday, the link to the breaking news that Julie Child and other famous people were also spies!
But how Twitter is working for me so far is in generating some fantastic candidates in the space that I recruit in. My job update Tweets seem to get passed along and I've been hearing from people I likely wouldn't find otherwise.
I've also had comments from new candidates who referenced something I posted on Twitter, always the personal stuff....so I think it helps in giving them the sense that they 'know me' a little.
Also....LinkedIn's new 'update' feature is similar to a Twitter post, and very effective. I've had people in my network reach out based on what I've posted there on new searches. Whenever you post your update on LinkedIn it shows up on the home page of your first level contacts...
So, any other tips for what is working for YOU on Twitter?
o avoid distractions so that I can answer yes to all three questions and I can leave when I want to leave. Do I work late sometimes? Sure... special projects, deadlines, emergencies or just feeling the groove. But it's not about quantit. That to me seems to be the gut reaction to everybody I've spoken with on this topic. When you're working, work! When you're done, go home! Now excuse me while I go tweet, check facebook, and update my LinkedIn profile.…

I think this year we'll see more creative agencies adopting this method of recruitment, as Snapchat is showing every sign of growing even further in popularity following its latest update this week! …
nkedin. They don't think about it. With the overwhelmingly "hot" IT market - these guys just don't ever find themselves in a "how do I get a job" mode. They're being contacted in many ways every day/week.
Linkedin (in my opinion only - who knows if this is true of not) is more of a "OK. I should get my job search going. Better update my LI profile." - or so the "experts" keep proclaiming.
Most IT people (for now) don't need to get that far.…
o" - Fortune 500 CEO
I am not a journalist. I am an American citizen who was laid-off on November 6th 2008 by the very same company which I am paying to keep in business, AIG.
On March 9th, 2009 I kicked off a report called "30 Employers in 30 Days". Over the last 15 days, and 240 hours, I've contacted over 800 Staffing Professionals in regards to almost 13,000 known job openings. While we are losing 27,000 jobs per day, unemployment statistics continue to climb and many more Americans continue to lose their homes, savings and hope.
However, many of America's largest corporations are still hiring.
BUT WAIT! Are they really? And if so, what action are they taking to restore our economy?
This is the story that corporate America does not want you to hear. This is the story that every media outlet in the United States needs to feature as soon as possible. Americans need to know that I am devoting every day of my life to help them get back to work however struggling to receive the same cooperation from many high profile corporations.

ses are 7 to 10 times more accurate than the typical user of "Constant Contact" (which is frankly a very spammy service). My unsubscribe rate is below one per thousand (which is 10x or 20x lower than typical for "Constant Contact"). My delivery rate is 99%, which is pretty good. So spam filters aren't stopping my high-quality email.
The problem with email marketing is that most people are much too lazy to make it work, and they don't collect and update addresses weekly, like they should. I'm always removing any suspect addresses. Content is extremely important, too!
