The Future of Jobster.com

Ask a job seeker where he or she would start their online job search. Jobster certainly wouldn’t be at the top of their list, since it primarily branded itself within the HR and Recruiting community. I quickly started 3 job searches on Google using a keyword and location, and a Jobster result did appear on the first page of results in 2 of the 3 searches. In all 3 results I clicked on the first job in the site. All 3 were aggregated from other sites, and 2 of the 3 came up with “Sorry, this job… Continue

Warning Signs to Look for When Interviewing A Candidate

So they look great on paper, but do you really know what’s going to come walking through your door? Pay attention to these warning signs when interviewing your next candidate:

Interview Warning Sign #1: Appearance

This is an easy one. If they arrive at the interview in a gym suit, overalls, mini skirt, etc., you may want to rethink your candidate choice. If they can’t put any effort into their interview attire what makes you think they are going to put any effort into… Continue

LInkedIn - Are you kidding me???

OK. So I'm done complaining about Linked In. General concensus indicates I'm simply missing the boat on this. So I've decided to do something about my meager 42 contacts. Today!

Sign on. Great. I see some of my contacts are as promiscuos as ever! Nothing new there. Also it was nice to be reminded of a contact at a client I've just heard is hiring. Maybe I'll give her a call. (If that's still cool.)

Back to adding new contacts. Let's see. Oh boy - Linked In has offered to… Continue

You're Getting Noticed - Like it or Not...

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility I’ve heard it said that branding is all about getting yourself noticed. I’d tend to disagree – at least I’d tend to disagree today. It’s my opinion that personal branding only begins with getting noticed. If done right, personal branding efforts (for employment) should continue down a path that leads potential employers to see you as the only viable option they have for a job they’re looking to fill (or to create!)

But first let’s have a quick chat about getting… Continue

In Defence of Salesmen, Part 2

(Audio version here)

Last week, I criticized a young, corporate recruiter for slandering salesmen on his blog. Well, he got in touch with me because he didn't like hearing me say his philosophy is well suited to cult members and cream puffs but not strong women and real men.

And you know what that means? That even after listening this little punk still didn't get it. So I'm going to have to teach him another lesson, today.… Continue

Discuss: online employee referral program (ERP)?

Hi I just think about online ERP here:

Nowadays, employee referral program (ERP) is proven to be the most effective and efficient way to hire new. According to “Recruitment Advertising: Moving in New Directions” by Classified Intelligence, ERP is 20% more effective than job board like Monster, CareerBuilder and Dice. Many HR sources claim that rewarding employees actually costs less than recruiting and often attracts better workers.

With so much advantage, more and more… Continue

Finding the perfect terms

How to Think Like Your Prospect?

As we consider the candidate mindset, we realize that they're busy achieving their success as a result a large number of candidates are just bored, tired or not interested in looking for “opportunities”. We need to recognize that candidates are chasing a career, not jobs.

When people write their profiles, bios, or resumes, they reflect their personality and skills as they represent their career goals creating an image. They are building a… Continue

Cafepharma: the good, the bad, and the ugly

A lot of people want to know what I think about CafePharma. Here goes: I think that it’s a great source of relevant headlines for those of us in medical and healthcare sales, pharmaceutical sales, laboratory sales, clinical diagnostics sales, DNA sales, medical supplies sales, medical equipment sales, imaging sales, and pathology sales. However, beware of the chat room. There can be a lot of negative information from people who have their own specific axe to grind. No company is as bad as they… Continue

If their are outplacement… Continue

My Reply to a Discussion Regarding~"Disheartened Recruiters/Members of Linkedin" ~TiffinySmith-Esther~ 7/30/08 ~www.recruitingblogs.com~

Dear ____

I feel the same way you do. I absolutely loved the "whole idea" of Linkedin professional networking and like you, I've accepted every invitation I've received, invited hundreds of recruiters (and others in our industry) to "please join my professional network on Linkedin." Most have accepted my invitation, some are "still pending," and no one has "declined" my invitation. I completely finished my profile at 100% two days ago, and it must have taken at least ten days…
