All these resumes and Where do They Go?

I noticed a very interesting blog yesterday about a new recruiter inquiring about choosing and the validity of:

ATS. A woman responded that they, ATS"s, were a waste of time unless you have a data entry person, and even then there value were was questionable.



My situation is different, but has similarities. I do have an ATS system that I have never really developed or used fully. It also only cost 200 dollars. It will do some automatic data entry, particularly if you set up a… Continue

Creating Value versus Recruiting Greed

Like in most sectors of the economy recruiters are sometimes subject to greed in their desire to make a quick buck (placement) and run, having little or no consideration for the impact of their actions on the life of the candidate or the success of the client company. Of course, the majority of recruiters do not fall into this category and we generally got into this field to make money and not become saints. Well, maybe not all of us.

I am the “Admin” for the Recruiters On LinkedIn group, www.recruitingblogs.com/group/linkedin. You have recently joined and this is a "welcome" to the group and "here is how it works".


Over the past year I have been experimenting how best to facilitate members being able to connect with each other. Some want to connect with everyone and some are looking for a few meaningful connections.


1-2 times per week I send a group introduction message with 10-15 new members and reintroducing others.


What this means for you is simple, do you wish to be introduced to the group?


You have 4 options from which to choose:


(A) “Open Networker” with name, email address, and LinkedIn URL as you want to connect with anyone and everyone.


(B) “General Introduction” with name and LinkedIn URL as you are specific about who you want to connect with.


(C) “Lurker” no announcement will be made as you want to be on the sidelines connecting with people as you wish.


(D) “Super Open Networker” which is (A) plus having your contact information on the group page.


A caution on the “Open Networker”, you may be inundated with invitations to connect. For some this is exactly what they are hoping for and others this could be a pain.


I do ask, if you receive invitations from members you do not want to connect with that you “Archive” the message versus “I don’t know” so the sender is not penalized by LinkedIn although how you handle this is up to you.


Again your options are (A), (B), (C), (D).


Please include your LinkedIn URL and email address you prefer to receive invitations and send to paul@mnheadhunter.com


Thank you for your time.
