Tutorial Tuesday with Glen Cathey

For the advanced student of Boolean and the novice alike, this week Glen explains how to develop a search string strategy that will take you from "cherry picking" candidates to avoiding "false positives." Some nifty little rules with examples to play with.



Reminiscent of Shakespeare me thinks: To be OR NOT to be? That is the question...

How to use… Continue

TGIS [Thank Goodness It's Sumser!]

John has been writing about the industry for donkeys years. He has introduced us to titans in the making [think CareerMosaic or The Online Technical Employment Center for example] and any number of here-today-gone-tomorrow-no-name-vendors.



The value of John's assessments lie in the fact that a) he knows what he's talking about and has a history to prove… Continue

Claudia's Wednesday Wisdom

Opening a can of sweet condensed milk to give a troubled employee some "southern comfort" is all well and good until you realize you've opened a can of worms instead.



This week we should forgive Claudia. The label on the can read: Common Sense: How hard is that to swallow?



Why don't you take a shot? Guns and Common… Continue

Tutorial Tuesday with Rich Becker

We are lucky to have Rich join the lineup of regular columnists on RecruitingBlogs.com.



Rich has been an industry observer for some time. He sees the "social recruiter" through the prism of branding and communications and PR and good ol' fashioned business.



Kicking off then, Elizabeth Lauer, this one's for you!… Continue

TGIS [Thank Goodness It's Sumser!]

This week John transitions from big-picture thinking [and talk of community] to something more reflective [talking about relationships]. And, in reporting the value he is getting from his "An Hour With" sessions John reminds us all, there's no time like the present to make friends.



Literally and figuratively then:… Continue

Third Party Thursday with Mark Berger

Continuing on his "need more resumes?" theme this week Mark adds to the list of potential sources.



Pointing out that displaced professionals are often shepherded in their job search by outplacement firms, where better to find the resumes you're looking for?



Any to add to the list?… Continue

Claudia's Wednesday Wisdom

Never one to shy away from tackling the more delicate issues that trouble recruiters from time-to-time, this week Claudia helps "Migraine in Maine" deal with a stinky co-worker...



"I’ve been told by people responsible for cadaver removal that Vicks VapoRub, when it strategically fills the entire nose cavity, prevents even the worst smells from making you sick."




Yeah, right. Better still:… Continue

Tutorial Tuesday with Kelly Dingee

Kelly shares a really simple hack for expanding the universe on Facebook which has her reminiscing:



"This search process distinctly reminds me of...my very first training classes back in ’98, 'Find One, Find Them All'."



So, Do you like Facebook as a source?

You can rely on John for perspective. From ocean vistas to workforce, demographics John concludes life is too short to be a two-bit player in another's recession nightmare. Rather, find and live your dream.

Claudia's Wednesday Wisdom: Catch-22

Oh, dearie, dearie me...



"I saw my boss and one of my workmates out on a date, although they didn’t see me. How do I know it wasn’t a business meeting? Let’s just say that things were a little steamy at the dinner table, and I’m not talking about the vegetables."



Caught between a rock and a hard place, indeed...Get a room!

This week Heather tackles internet sourcing and opens up the discussion about privacy rights and what privacy settings really mean.

Ami G. on Tuesday: Stack 'em high and sell 'em cheap...job postings that is

It seems the politicos at The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) have teamed up with JobTarget marketeers and are set to publish a 2009 Job Board Savings Book.



Apparently, you can use the coupons at over 1,000 niche, diversity and regional job boards that are slashing up to half the price on their job postings,… Continue

Ami G. on Monday: The Sirens of Search

I have been on a quest to find a search engine that will know what I'm looking for without me ever having to input a search term, let alone search strings, symbols or syntax. No, not natural language but something even less tiresome...brain waves perhaps.



More than that, I want the aggregated results to be served in context, arranged in folders by media and domain, sorted by date and relevancy,… Continue

January 2, 2009

This week John turns the New Years' page to open a new chapter only to find an old problem: social media overwhelm...



"I can't figure out how to streamline my communication process. I'd like a single interface for some of the things I do on each of the systems...I'm dropping too many balls."



Help John and the rest of us out if you the panacea for posting-ping-ping pottiness: Digging Into… Continue

Ami G. on Friday: John Sumser in the fullness of time

A year is not a very long time in the overall scheme of things. Online, time seems to be compressed in ways that defy imagination. We measure our time and attention span in the language of machines. We live at such a frenetic pace that rarely do we stop to pause and reflect.



Change happens in front of our very eyes but we often miss it. In so doing we miss out on developing a level of appreciation for things that should come… Continue
