It seems to me that finding mid level candidates is becoming increasingly more difficult, especially for technology searches. I can still find senior level people... but that elusive 2 - 3 year person with SQL Server 2005 development skills or that extremely customer service oriented help desk analyst are no longer out there and just not reproducing to meet the current demand. I've tried all the local watering holes to no avail... so now I'm going blogging. Any suggestions?

is an interesting guy. I talk to him at least once a week and he is a guy who understands how a blog can help his business. He is contacted regularly by people who want his opinion or want his services because they found him via his blog via goole.
He submitted a very interesting lesson he has learned as a recruiter. Here is a little from it:"For example, imagine that I submit six highly-qualified candidates… Continue

As a sourcer, I think we have to try all means and this is certainly worth a try. So far we are already seen some traffic.
In case anyone is interested the website is www.vajoe.com.… Continue
