Why Traditional Resume Mining and job board sourcing doesnt work well outside the United States

Shally Steckerl, Manager, Core Technical Central Sourcing Team, Microsoft Corp
Traditional resume mining and job board sourcing doesn't work well outside the United States. Very few global sourcing departments have been able to use their "standard" techniques successfully worldwide. In many cases separate strategies must be created for each of the worlds regions, but in every case local customs and idiosyncrasies have deep impact on sourcing tactics. The Internet is a cultural phenomenon, and like most other cultural phenomenon it has different meanings or interpretations even within the cultural subgroups of one nation. As a result, a highly flexible, centralized multi-tiered approach must be made. Soucing Centers that develop International expertise by channels and not regions will be successful. (OnRec)

Beware Unofficial Web Traffic Stats Warns The IT Job Board
Be wary of unauthorised website traffic statistics warns The IT Job Board

Deep Release:
Traditional Employer Characteristics Remain Most Popular Among Job Seekers, Accenture Survey Finds

Employers that offer interesting work, regular recognition and rewards, and opportunities for quick advancement are the most popular targets for job seekers, according to the findings of a global recruitment survey released today by Accenture (NYSE: ACN).

Another key finding: Job seekers don't place as much value on such increasingly popular programs as corporate citizenship and diversity as they do on traditional benefits such as robust rewards programs and personal growth opportunities.

The purpose of the survey, which queried more than 4,100 job seekers in 21 countries in North and South America, Europe and the Asia Pacific region, was to identify the most-valued career goals of both entry-level and experienced job seekers.

The findings indicate that challenging and interesting work is the most important characteristic that job seekers look for in prospective employers, selected by 60 percent of all respondents. The potential for recognition and reward for their accomplishments was a close second selected by 58 percent of respondents.

Rounding out the top five characteristics of greatest interest to job seekers were: opportunities for fast career growth (44 percent); indications that the employer is well established and is likely to have long-term prosperity (42 percent); and indications that a company has a particular focus on its people (42 percent).

"Interestingly, we found that what is considered important to potential recruits was remarkably consistent across geographies," said John Campagnino, Accenture's global director of recruitment. "Also notable was the fact that while we know from our own employees that corporate social responsibility and diversity are important employer characteristics - things our employees demand and place high value in - the research also validated what many of us intuitively know: namely, that more tangible benefits such as rewards and recognition are most important from an external recruit's perspective."

Key survey findings:

Employer Characteristic Priorities of Job Seekers % of Respondents Selecting Employer Characteristic Priority

  1. Challenging and interesting work   60%
  2. Recognizes and rewards accomplishments   58%
  3. Provides an opportunity for fast career growth and advancement   44%
  4. Financially strong/will prosper in the long run   42%
  5. People-oriented   42%
  6. Offers flexible work arrangements   41%
  7. Innovative   33%
  8. Approachable   27%
  9. Team-oriented environment   27%
  10. Global company   26%
  11. Offers a variety of work   26%
  12. Smart   21%
  13. Collaborative environment   17%
  14. Committed to the community/corporate citizenship   16%
  15. Diverse workforce   16%
