and don't do any of the other many things that make recruiters so valuable to companies large and small. I have already seen the decrease in number of recruiters employed in those firms in my area. Those firms that boosted 25 - 40 recruiters now have maybe 10 to 12 people or less.
Personally, I don't want to be part of the largest firm; I simply want to be the best headhunter. The person they call when they need a really specific person, with specific skills, from a specific industry and they want it done quickly and quietly - no job boards and no advertising. They can call me when they need to have someone fit into their leadership team while having the skills to move the business forward. I don't see my practice going down, I see an increase in business.
I do not see a decrease in fees in the future - I expect an increase.…
Perform industry-specific research
Despite the current economic situation, many industries are still actively hiring part-time staff, including health care, accounting, IT, sales, education and fundraising. Performing online research and reading industry-specific journals will inform you of who is hiring in your area.
Set up informational meetings
Speak with those in your professional and personal networks to find out what is going on in specific industries and firms.
Talk to others who work part-time
Gain greater knowledge of different companies’ hiring policies by finding out how others got their part-time jobs. Don’t forget to get names of hiring managers.
Connect with organizations that hire part-time help
Web sites like MyPartTimePRO.com specifically display part-time, professional-level jobs. Other online and offline services are available to help moms and retirees return to work.
Engage recruiters and employment agencies
Don’t just contact general staffing firms; research those who serve your specific industry. Also, many companies outsource their hiring to recruiters. If there is a specific employer you are interested in working for, contact their HR department directly to find out which firms recruit for the company.
Tailor your own position
Many companies strictly hire full-timers. When interviewing, show the hiring manager how you can do a great job in less time. Other firms may not even realize they need your services and will create a position for you based on your captivating presentation.
Actively use online networking opportunities
Make use of online tools other job seekers and recruiters actively use: LinkedIn, Facebook, ListServs and newsgroups.
If you are seeking employment with an association or nonprofit organization, volunteer first. Volunteering provides the potential employer with a first-hand look at who you are and how you perform.

a college grad of, say for example, history, without a specific career path, with volunteer and work experience in a number of different places that all really translate to "transferable skills" there are certainly a lot more places to look. The decline in the job market has exasperated the problem convincing new grads that they do have to look at every opportunity available.
More or less, I am just saying that I sympathize with the guy having been in that situation less than a year ago and while 5-10 a day sound like a lot, when you widen your search perameters and location (a lot of new grads are willing to try out a new city if a good opportunity arises) then I am not convinced that it is unrealistic.
Furthermore, I understand the irritation that comes with a computer generated rejection letter that can really feel like "oh, the computer doesn't think that I can do this job."
I'm looking forward to bringing together the best of online/offline conversations as we move forward in our new social web/world. The hashtag for specific events is good at getting conversations started around specific topics and events, but there should be a way to stimulate these conversations more frequently around topics of interest. I think that's when you really start to tap into the amazing benefits of community.

But an ERP is an opportunity to create direction, ie: establish a diversity recruitment drive, a specific drive to hire more from a particular college or university, et.. A great way to do this is to have special incentives tied to certain corporate and recruitment goals within the ERP program. The drives can be turned on and off based on specific recruitment drives.…
