Great article. Thanks for sharing. It supports the notion that it is the attitude and intensity one brings to the job and not the [online] medium that separates the best from all the rest.

As an employer however, I may be confronted with the choice of hiring David, who I may like and enjoy a long-term relationship with, or another firm, perhaps one that is even more expensive, but one that has people who know the targets and can call directly the folks I want. If I can map my targets' relationships, I can get there with less drama.

Sadly, the most innovative and entertaining paparazzi-staffing methods may be in decline.

Awesome article Jason. I love being a "secret agent" , doing Competative Intelligence, and even being sneaky at times. These tactics are essential for any sucessful external recruiter. Unfortunately when you are internal you must play by the rules. You can still write some fun emails and play phone games to get who you want.

Great read, amazing to see what lengths some sourcers are going to. Any former spies yet?

Hey slouch this is Justin Clem, something strang is going on with the site as when I logged in it made me create another profile. Can you help? You will notice there is a new profile created today and there is an old profile with my picture on it.

PS - We're having a social "cocktail hour" tomorrow night at Cafe Zalute which is down the street from the convention center. Go have a cocktail in memory of me! No, but seriously if you don't already have plans, I've emailed Amy and Sally and they'll have an invitation at our booth waiting for you. Hope you get the chance to go.

I have started Ning Community for former employees of the Allegis Group - my past employer.

I am attempting, within the "manage tabs" section, to create a job posting section.

I can't seem to make it work. What is the trick?

Thanks for the little promo on my Fordyce Forum 2009 question.

Greetings! Can you search for members by the name of the company they work for? I could not figure it out if there is a way to do so.

btw - it's Heather and couple of others :) I guess he has quite a Fan club.. wait.. I thought someone mentioned was the President of his fan club? Was that John Sumser? :) Look forward to meeting John as well. PS - still trying to figure out a way back from Toronto to Buffalo - need to see if there are any other options other than greyhound (limited time slots).. I'd appreciate if you have some info. Thx Jason. Best, Susan

which one is the real "Animal" - I told Susan to take a photo for me next week when she at RecruitFest - I know he doesn't resemble a puppet in real life :-)

Slouch that was a lot of fun today on the Animal show and I laughed Dr. Pepper out of my nose when I read your post to Karen M. tellling her to STFU and get her own blog ;-)

It's not looking good - I have to be in Seattle for meetings that week so I am not sure if it is going to work. Give me until next week when SourceCon wraps up and I'll let you know if I can juggle.

How are you ?

Life in my world is good
Healthy and smiling
Kids are doing well. Three in college this year - ouch!
Business is excellent, new clients, more projects, exciting times for the Virtual Job Tryout.

Joined a group of musicians that jam once a month for grins and giggles
Started bike commuting 1-2 days per week, its just under 7 miles - uphill to work, down hill home ;-)

Hope all is well
Lots of interesting buzz in the space.
The video of your kids doing the drawing was cute.

I took my first step into video. can you hit my profile and see if it is there?

That is a basic small start. As you know the devil is in the details. We have to figure out all the possible benefits and drawbacks and other issues that would make it a successful site but also how we can determine the revenue projections and revenue dispersals etc, etc.

I am certainly open to further discussions. I like the idea of getting together because it allows for brainstorming and a focused fruitful discussion without all the work/office distractions and time commitments of running an office.

Hi Slouch,
