Room 4 Improvement 9
(April 06, 2006) Privacy and confidentiality, the next issues on the job board list, are two sides of the same coin. Some candidates don't want their information cycling around the net (Privacy). Some companies don't want information about certain jobs floating around (Confidentiality).
Given the fact that the Recruiting profession is dominated by folks in their 30s, 40s and 50s, it's easy to understand differences in perception on these questions.
We had a group of video game developers and animation majors review the msg.jobs site we reviewed recently. Here is one comment:
In other words, privacy is a case dependent variable. Microsoft has an employment brand that makes certain demographics nervous about sharing information with them. (You should have seen their eyes bug out when we told them about Shally's operation.) In the sub 30 set, information privacy is a substantial issue. Job boards are unlikely to consistently reach a subset of this group. Identity Theft is a common concern.
Confidentiality, the idea that some employment transactions should be private, is the other side. Ask any competitive intelligence expert how to disect a company. They'll tell you to Google them, look up their SEC information and then go to the job boards. Strategies and plans become manifest once the jobs are assembled into coherent piles.
