ryone to maintain only strong first connections. That is no longer a reality. I couldn't control how strong my connections connections were, thus my initial 1st level strong network started to break down. Ergo, I went for numbers as an open networker.…
do so at their own risk.Sandra McCartt said:
Total job board spend = 4,500.00
Billings directly related to job board posting response = 217,000
400+ Good placeable in forseeable future candidates = Priceless
Advertising freeing up time for direct recruiting on hard to fill positions = Beyond Priceless
However: not everybody is fond of LION's, it could also scare off some of the people you'd like to connect with. There's somewhat of a debate between the "purists" (only link when you really know somebody) and "open networkers" (the bigger the network the better; some people even publicly boast how many connections they have).
So think carefully what method you choose. Also consider becoming member of SixDegrees group, this could massively increase your network in the shortest time (thanks again Dave!).
candidates some think it is. However, Martin allows us to see it issue from a broader perspective. Recruiters are market purists, they will use whatever works, any data source that associates a potential canddiate with an occupation, a location and provides contact information is going to be exploited by the community. The prices for those data sources are going to reflect the efficacy of the data source. When you see Job board prices plummet and LinkedIn prices explode then we can credit Jerome for his LinkedIn corporate sponsored prognostication.
However at the moment his statement "LinkedIn has become and will remain “The Source”. No more resumes, no more databases. Just standardized online profiles" is far from true.…
of truth. Yeppers Maureen, it's like the "old days". Brings em out of the woodwork screaming like somebody just took the meat off their sandwich.
Ok all you purists. let's try this. How would you feel about somebody who does not want to do this horrible, dastardly, deceitful, risky, career killing, manipulative act of human cowardice just asking a colleague in his department to go to their boss and say, "I'm not sure, but i am afraid we are going to lose ole Jerry, i heard him talking on the phone and i think it was to a recruiter."
Now let's say that he didn't ask anybody to go tell the boss, somebody in his department heard him talking on the phone and thought it was to a recruiter went to the boss and said exactly the same thing.
Is one instance a horrible act and the other an unfortunate oversite with the same end result?
Now take it one step further, the other guy really did hear ole Jerry on the phone talking to a recruiter, he does the same thing. Now who do you want to call horrible , blah, blah.
I love it, love it, love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…
kill should be reflected in black type on the resume or on an addendum that is a skill set summary. Not the slimey crap of hiding a ton of buzz words so it will come up. If any recxruiter is stupid enough to just search for QTP and not Quick Test Pro they haven't been doing online searches for more than about 20 minutes.
I will defer to Ryan's far superior knowledge of techie stuff it's above my pay grade but when i first read it a year ago or whenever it was recycled my thought was, what a cheap chickenshit trick. But then i am a purist about cheap tricks and being from Texas i can recognize chickenshit without having to take a bite of it. So i suspect that is what the recruiters were talking about when they said it was cheating and would cause them to get all kinds of unqualified candidates.
Fortunately or unfortunately , as the case may be, i am blessed or cursed with a photographic memory. I am delighted that Ryan has clarified the pitfalls and called your suggestion out for what it is albeing somewhat more politically correct than mine. …
edge, a "best place" to work, etc., or a company that is well known for being a great place to work in your community, AND you have a great employee referral program, then social networking just might work for you. But then so do the other traiditional methods that have been around forever.
Those of you who mention that SN should just be an additive to your other methods......I completely agree with you. SN is about having deep roots in the industry that you specialize in. SN is about cultivating relationships with candidates over a long period of time (okay......I'm an old-timer who's been doing this for a specific industry for a long time), but it works. It also helps to scratch other recruiters backs from time to time. Throw them a bone (a great candidate that you can't use, but possibly they can) because that comes back to you in spades later too. It's all about relationships, using Linked In as a sourcing tool, and the other obvious ones (Monster, etc), because regardless of what the SN purists say, they work. And they have always worked and that's the beginning, the middle and the end of the story. Relationships that are developed human to human. Email to email. Phone call to phone call.
BTW........if you have a great referreal program that recognizes and appreciates the referral, regardless if you're a corporate recruiter, or work for a staffing agency, or you're alone as a 3rd party, referrals typically should be a minimum of 20% of your hires. If you're doing great they should represent 25% of your hires. If they're any lower than that, then you're focusing on channels that don't pay off in the end. So why bother?…
ng, and vision); recruiting family member’s time, talent, patience and support (your daughter is a scene stealer); recruiting family pet’s time, talent, patience and support…and fact that no one was hurt in the production of this video (hopefully).
Jim, it is pioneering efforts like your, in this video, that will inspire others to put family members and pets, in harms way, for the purpose of entertaining others. No-budget movie makers all started out in this way and some succeeded greatly. The cast of “characters”; the dialogue, the lighting & background music, the dramatic acting and action scenes--with no stunt-doubles is unbelievable. Your script was spell-binding; and the editing had to be difficult—having to leave out so much good footage to keep it under 10 minutes had to be painful.
I applaud your effort as anyone who has ever experimented with shooting a video knows—it ain’t easy. Keep them coming and I’m sure one will go viral big-time and make you even more famous than you are now.
BTW--I especially liked the fall-down scenes where you showed promise a la Buster Keaton. I recommend incorporating stairs in your next video falling down scene with you acting—and please use a slo-mo sequence—that would attract even more viewership.
Merry Christmas to you and yours...
ogh’s most famous work is that the painting almost appears to swirl in dreamy delight even in its original form, but with some help from Petros Vrellis and openFrameworks, that dream becomes a reality." http://holykaw.alltop.com
My take is that the art purists will be offended, but art lovers everywhere will like the whole concept of interactive art forms. I certainly like it as alternate medium with great potential to attract new fans and artists.
