It's been a while since I last posted on here - that's because I've been really busy keeping my head above water in this never ending recession. Anyway, I've noticed many references by recruitingblogs to Bounty Jobs... I'm sure they are paying recruiting blogs to promote them.... which is fine, that's how recruitingblogs in part make their money. I had no idea who they were at first, until someone told me they were the equivalent of Talent Puzzle here in the UK.
So - on the subject of Bounty Jobs, and similar services setting up here in the UK, I thought you should all take a read of the following article written by a person I have huge respect for in our industry....
(replace "Tesco" with "Walmart" - and you'll get the picture)
I can't comment on how everyone is taking Bounty Jobs in the US... but we aren't taking to kindly to this type of service in the UK. Don't you just hate how the likes of Walmart are forcing it's suppliers to work harder, for less, forcing all the small grocery stores out of business, and forcing us as customers to accept hikes in grocery prices because we have little choice on where else to shop! The big supermarkets totally control the food supply chain, and I for one don't want anyone coming into the recruiting industry and taking dictating how we as the REAL supplier should be working in a similar fashion.
I know that Jason most likely won't feature this particular blog of mine, as he's kindly done in the past... given the fact that Bounty Jobs are a sponsor on here (perhaps when he's gone he might comment?). However, I just wanted to know how you are all taking to Bounty Jobs over there in the US?
Are you happy with them coming in a trying to control the market - forcing you to go through them to get to the jobs you want to fill, driving down your fees, and even taking their cut of your low fee in the process?
