"@Bill - I admit that if the candidate fills the job I don't care if Santa dropped him or her down my chimney.   @Peter - I know what you meant earlier and I agree, just being a little facetious. We call it Feisty Friday around here :)"

"Exactly, Amy.  You're not a "jerk" if you don't talk to everyone and I'm not suggesting you should.  The key is in your 2nd paragraph and parting statement. Sandra - to state that the candidate isn't…"

Peter commented on Emily Stevenson's blog post 'Are job boards a waste of time?'
"I think it's funny that professional recruiters somehow infer that I would attempt to monopolize their time or that the candidate calling is some sort of time leach or inferior being.  Perhaps that's not what you or Peter C. meant,…"

Sandra McCartt commented on Emily Stevenson's blog post 'Are job boards a waste of time?'
"I agree with Peter C that those who call me without sending their resume first are annoying.  As a recruiter i need something called a resume in order to speak with them effectively.  I can visit with them hear what they have to say which…"

"Great.  Another "teach an accountant/scientist/programmer/engineer how to become a sales person" comment.  No way.  Peter - you're in sales.  Most people aren't."

Are job boards a waste of time?

Job boards have been around for what seems like forever.  If an internet year is the equivalent of a dog year (seven years to every one human year) then job boards are past their century mark and in some cases approaching dinosaur status.

Do people still use job boards?

Even just a quick online search reveals that yes, people do still use job boards. From brands like Monster, Jobsite and Totaljobs to aggregator sites such as Indeed or Broadbean, the job boards are alive and…

Where have all the jobs gone..?

Open a newspaper or switch on the television and it seems that swingeing jobs cuts are still being announced on a regular basis. While we all acknowledge that the days of the ‘job for life’ are gone, traditionally there have always been sectors perceived as ‘safer’ career choices. 

This is no longer necessarily the case. The reputation of the once lucrative financial sector has been decimated with the banking crisis and a swathe of cuts is still pending across the once safe public…

The CV is Dead - Long Live the CV

There is much debate currently flying around over the longevity of the CV in its traditional format. With video CVs and cloudbased presentation software such as Prezi bombarding the market, candidates are called upon to dream up increasingly innovative techniques simply to get in a look in at a vacancy.

CV parsing - yes, no or maybe?

CVs have changed. Instead of going round your local businesses with a folder full of CVs, handing them out and knowing people will read them, the majority of CVs are submitted as part of an online application process and now, there are even CVs that take the form of web pages – all in order to help people stand out more to try and help them get read.
