Bob v79

(August 18, 2006)
This week we're focusing on a few really great postings from the last month or so. Inclusion in this version of Best of The Blogs means that we think the piece is a well reasoned example from a real talent. That suggests some original thinking and a break from the rest of the pack. We highly recommend that you check out"
  • Jason's got the ball
    The future has not been written," began Terminator 3. "There is no fate but what we make for ourselves." It took 12 years to write the script for Terminator 3, I wonder how long Jason Goldberg has been planning 'Jobster - meet your future'. I wonder how far his vision goes? (Hire Strategies)
  • Study Reveals How Recruiters Can Put The Brakes On High Trucker Turnover
    Recruiting and retaining good truck drivers has long been a challenge for the trucking industry, where employee turnover rates average near 30 percent. Yet while trucking company recruiters and HR teams have made their recruitment pitches more attractive and their retention policies more effective, serious challenges persist. Now, a new study by management researches at the University of Arkansas reveals that a combination of poor working conditions and lingering pay issues explains why so many promising truckers put the brakes on their work for good. (Inside Recruiting)
  • Public Sector HCM Challenge I was at the Gartner HQ today for an Executive Briefing with a part of one of U.S. Armed Forces. Given the events of the day, the conversations outside the main meeting were interesting. But, I digress. I was there to talk to them about HCM best practices and technology. I found it interesting that they had many of the same challenges as private sector organizations. The aging workforce was a huge deal. They estimated that 30% of the workforce was eligible to retire RIGHT NOW (on a full pension by the way). (BlogERP)
  • Schrödinger's Cat & The Myth Of Passive Job Seekers
    Have you ever read something that doesn't really spark your interest until you think about it later? Sometimes, then you can't stop thinking about it. I read a great critique of the popular concept of "passive job seekers" recently. It was very thought provoking (in a delayed sort of way) and I wish I could remember where I read it. Following is a summary of that author's thoughts, as I remember them, with extra commentary by yours truly. Ever since I first heard about "passive candidates," everything about the concept has bothered me. The idea itself and the label. Let's start with the label. At best it is misleading (or, at least, an oxymoron) to apply the word "passive" to an allegedly superior class of job seeker. (For Employers and Recruiters)
  • craigslist, jobster in 'misunderstanding'
    A Jobster client forwarded the following e-mail last night:
    We regret to inform you that we have temporarily suspended all job posts to Craigslist through the Jobster Direct Post feature while we ensure that we are in compliance with Craiglist's posting policies and procedures. This suspension applies to both active and future postings. (Cheezhead)
  • The Metrics, They Are A Changing
    This post is part of the Recruiting Blog Swap. This week, Gretchen lays it on the line.
    Lately, there's been a lot talk about recruiting's movement toward less conventional sourcing techniques such as blogs, forums, and industry events.  Nothing new, of course … just more recent buzz. Kevin Wheeler talked about virtual relationships over on ERE. Here at recruiting.com, we've had Jim Stroud talking about recruiting entertainment. And we've had Heather disagreeing with Jim Durbin about the value of blogs. (When does Heather *ever* agree with someone?  j/k, HH).  And, well, I feel like every other day, there's a blog entry from someone talking about how My Space is the ultimate anti-reference of tomorrow.  (On Recruiting.com from  Gretchen)
  • Online Job-hunting for Recruiters, Especially If You Don't Need a Job
    To me, The Desk comes across as a recruiting-geared blog. However, I know Viva has a soft spot for job-seekers (indeed, I once did a live chat for one of the career networking groups she manages). And the blog's subtitle references job-seekers. So in discussing with Viva what might be of interest in my guest post, I offered something for recruiters AS job-seekers. . .(On The Desk from Glen Gutmacher)
