Has Facebook Seen the Recruiting Light? Grandma's Chicken Soup #37

What has become the norm in the recruiting industry is that social recruiting dominates the headlines.

Social and Mobile Recruitment continues to dominate the headlines: Grandma's Chicken Soup #36

I missed last week's Grandma's Chicken Soup due to the fact that I have a ton of work and had a number of great meetings with clients and prospects.  Something had to give.  I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for my colleagues who can blog on a regular basis and keep a day job. 

That being said, there is a lot of action occurring in the talent acquisition/recruiting space right…

HireClix - Grandma's Chicken Soup #28: What is Wall Street Telling you about Job Boards?

What do the money managers on Wall Street know about the job boards that HR and Recruiting executives don't know?  The folks on Wall Street have questions about the long term growth and viability of the job board business.  The stock price after a strong quarter is an indication of their concerns.  They do not seem concerned about the future growth prospects of innovative organizations like…

Will they swear off job boards completely? Maybe, maybe not. Universally, they will spend less. One big board instead of two. A handful of niche boards not dozens. The smart money is moving to LinkedIn and Facebook.…
