I was finally happy to see that CareerBuilder is building something for recruiters and it's going to be expensive. I read about it on ERE
and essentially, Careerbuilder will build you a talent network. It seems they are the first to admit that it can be done without their help but of course if someone wants to help, why not. Help can be good.
I'm not going to describe what it is they will do exactly because John Zappe
wrote about it but I want to comment on the price tag. It says they will charge between 100 and 150k for the first year and this does include setup charges. To me, this sounds cheap. I bet the biggest issue most people will have with this is that it sounds expensive but if you look at this from a traditional standpoint, the cost to hire someone is not cheap and somewhere along the way, someone started selling the concept that talent acquisition or the cost of getting someone real good on board can be or should be cheap. Its not.
I applaud CareerBuilder for holding out their middle finger and saying guess what boys, we are not going to make this cheap.
