More green jobs - if only the government was more efficient

Seems as if the Department of Energy has $25 Billion to make loans to financially viable companies to use to fund development of electric powered cars. The program was developed in 2007 and has yet to dole out any money - money that would undoubtedly create jobs for recruiters as well.

The program’s small staff — around a dozen part-… Continue

How to get through Registered Nurses?

My experience recruiting for IT consultants is very different from recruitin for Registered Nurses...with IT consultants you may either call them or by simply posting an add online- you get through them and they start calling you.

WIht healthcare though- speficically nurses..since they work odd shifts and lots of 12 hour shifts...I am not quite sure if they ever find a time to be online to look for jobs..not to mention- there's a lot of jobs for nurses which makes it challenging to… Continue

So much to do... so little time.

Hands up all those who feel this.... go on... I know you want to, or have wanted to in the past.

I have a problem.... which I am a little embarrassed to write about. For goodness sake I am a grown man, I should be able to work this stuff out.

My TO DO List has stretched amazingly, I swear when I left it the other day it was fine, quite happy swimming along, not a care in the world. Now, sitting here very late Friday night,… Continue

Everything I ever learned about recruitment advertising I learned from real estate brokers

Selecting the right key words is critical to achieving visibility in online searches. Ms. Kory recently learned that rather than pull in buyers, creative copywriting can keep them away. "I have a wonderful apartment on Central Park West that has park views," she said, referring to a two-bedroom prewar co-op apartment currently listed at $4.15 million. "I was so tired of using the words 'park views' that I decided to write 'park vistas.' But it didn’t show up on any keyword search. People… Continue

Recruiters sending out resumes in Silicon Valley

It is hard to think of any job-hunting skills that Alexis Lovell lacks. As a recruiter for Silicon Valley technology companies, and before that, for retailers, she has advised job candidates on résumé preparation, personal presentation and interview skills for the last eight years. Networking strategies and trolling social networks and online job sites are the tools of her trade.

Yet none of those things is helping one candidate in need of a job these days: Ms. Lovell…

Peeling back layers

Forced from executive pay to hourly wages

We've all heard that a good number of the unemployed decide not to seek part-time work because it might interfere with their job searches. But Mr. Cooper rises every day at 4 a.m. and, after a time of prayer, devotes two hours to his job hunt on the computer. He prints out a detailed call list of prospective employers to take with him, squeezing in phone conversations… Continue

Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me, Me

First John Dickerson rants about Obama and his budget and then offers up this about Twitter:

One day we're going to wake up and every Twitter post will simply be, "Me, me, me, me." Outside will be a howling wilderness of shriveled civilization bereft of ideas and reason.

I already see it happening except… Continue

Recruitment: size matters?

Golf scores, gas bills, Dr Evil's sidekicks...bigger isn't always better. Unless you work in recruitment, that is.

Take a closer look at any rec-to-rec's books or website, and among the straightforward consultancy and managerial roles, you will more than likely find a number of stealthily exaggerated opportunities. 'Worldwide Operations Director' may seem like a prestigious position, but why does it only require six months' branch managing experience? If you Google the employer… Continue
