New: Job Search Engines for Recruiting

By May 13, 2009

Follow me on:

Today, Iím introducing a new feature on the site for my members and readers. With the proliferation of job sites online, itís difficult to differentiate their services and cost for employers. Recruiting online is a given these days and you want to select job sites that will provide you with the best possible pool of candidates.

As I looked into job sites, and emailed with executives and marketing employees at various job sites, it struck me that I would do my audience a favor if I wrote profiles about the sites.

Todayís lead article is my first profile of a simple, powerful job search engine called Indeed.com. I will write and publish profiles in the order in which job search sites return my questionnaire.

Iíd appreciate feedback from readers about whether you find these new profiles useful. If you do, Iíll write more of them.

The wall street journal had a great article yesterday about resume overload. You can see it here:

I am 53 with a wealth of experience and qualifications but cannot find a part time position. Far too many employers still have the nonsensical notion that because someone is younger and cheaper they make better employees.

Hi, I agree, I am 58 and have 25 years of experience in HR, but because I do not have a “degree” I am eliminated from consideration for positions.
How is that the best use of resources?
I have years of on the job training, of what really works (not just in theory) and what does not.
I am not anti-degree, as a matter of fact I am getting my degree so that I can continue to work at the job I love.
It is the inequity that irks me. At some point in a position actual experience trumps paper degree.
