Australasian employers embrace online recruitment
Australasian employers are embracing online recruitment tools and are playing a more active role in attracting candidates, according to a new report.

(Hindu Business Line)

Weird science as students ignore buoyant tech sector

Rather like house prices spiralling ever upwards when interest rates are rising, the dearth of students taking science, engineering and computing courses seems to defy logic. The economy remains strong, the technology sector has strongly rebounded from the dotcom crash and Ireland's future self-evidently will be as a high-tech nation. But despite all this, the great majority of school leavers don't see themselves making a career in science and technology. (Silicon Republic)

Options scandal grew out of 1990s strategy
Many Silicon Valley businesses offered the incentives to attract and retain their top employees in a competitive market
Stock options were the crack cocaine of the late 1990s. "It's the new American dream, getting rich off your company's stock," Forbes magazine gushed in 1998.

And it was in that climate that the options backdating scandal now making headlines was born. (SFChronicle)

U.S employers split on talent crunch
Are U.S. employers about to be hit by a long-anticipated shortage of talent, or are all the dire warnings just scaremongering? According to a survey of 3,100 senior human resources executives by Novations Group, a consulting organisation based in Boston, employers are divided. While most companies have seen some signs of a talent shortage, four out of 10 have had no difficulty finding the staff they need. At the same time, however, a third of organisations have already taken pre-emptive steps to update their selection and recruitment criteria in anticipation of recruitment problems on the horizon. But as to whether the U.S. will experience a shortage of talent in the next decade, employers are split. One in 10 are convinced that a shortage is imminent while a similar proportion appear equally sure that the problem has been blown out of all proportion. (Management Issues)

Monster Sees Dip In Online Recruitment
Rising gas prices and interest rates appear to be taking their toll on the pace of hiring, as Monster Worldwide Inc. reported Thursday that online recruitment activity has declined in 24 of the top 28 Metro markets.
