BoB: Best of the Recruiting Blogs

(November 16, 2006)
  • The Story Behind The Netflix Story
    There's been much ado regarding the recent Netflix announcement to pay $1M to whomever can crack the code to improve their collaborative filtering engine.  While much banter has been tossed around regarding this topic, the PR splash, and other facets, I see two other stories going on behind the scenes.  Story #1 - Building a talent pool.  (see netflixprize.com):  As of this post, there are currently 8775 contestants on 7170 teams from 97 different countries engaged in The Contest.

  • An Interview With NetFlix Recruiting: Stories in Stories, Part III
    So I've made several posts (here and here) on the Netflix Prize Contest that you should read before this one, if you haven't already.  The contest is designed to improve the Netflix technology that recommends titles to their customers (NY Times Article) and I think there are a couple of interesting stories playing out behind the scenes.  So rather then continuing to speculate, I decided to go to the source and put on my recruiting hat to find someone inside of Netflix that would tell me what's really going on.

  • Employment Branding in India
    Posted by Gautam
    I noticed that this story was earlier linked on Recruiting.com and it was a telling commentary that even a company like Google is straining to hire candidates.Of course, there are various reasons why employers may not be able to hire suitable candidates in India. However, this post would concentrate on one reason - the huge clutter of employers hiring in India. (Recruiting.com)
  • Blogswap is Live With an All New Format
    A tip of the hat to Jason Davis of Recruiting.com for helping to resurrect the blogswap. I've been working with Jason over the past couple of months to resurrect the blogswap and am pleased to announce that it is now live at http://www.CollegeRecruiter.com/blogswap. Unlike the previous version, this new one allows participants to:
    • Just author articles if they only want to write to get more exposure on other sites;
    • Just publish articles if they only want more content for their blogs; or
    • Both.
    There's no cost to participate as an author, publisher, or both and no requirement that you author a certain number of articles in a certain period of time or publish a certain number of articles in a certain period of time. If you post an article as an author, it automatically is assigned to the next publisher in line. If we have 10 publishers, then they take turns and each receives every 10th article. Publishers have two business days to post an article and verify that they did so. When they do, they get back in line for the next article. If they do not want to post an article for any reason, they kick it back to us, they go to the bottom of the line, and the article goes to the next publisher in line.
  • That's the Power of Blog: Peter Clayton
    A little over a year ago I wrote something called 68 Posts. Whenever someone asks me why I blog I point them to that article. With my recent revelations about the futility of trying to change the world of recruiting, I thought it best to go back and reconnect with some of the rewards I get from this peculiar activity. Reading 68 Posts I was struck by the fact that Peter Clayton reminded me of the power of blogging and I hadn't thanked him yet. Sorry Peter!  (Talentism)
  • On setting up a Indian presence
    Posted by Gautam.
    A reader read earlier posts on Recruiting.com about hiring in India and employment branding, so he asked me some questions via email. His questions and my answers: (Recruiting.com)
  • Doomsday scenario: recruitment in the era of climate change, resource scarcity and nuclear proliferation
    The prophesying of doom is nothing new to our era. Armageddon has been foretold by scores of religious visionaries over the centuries. And credulous audiences have lapped it all up - convinced that perdition or salvation, depending on their bent, lay just around the corner. It's as if we humans need to invest the narrative of our lives with a cataclysmic finale, one in which we all hold hands and take our final, solemn bow before existence is washed from the face of the earth by the Great Tsunami. This being so, one could be forgiven for thinking that the latest incarnation of end-of-the-world indulgence is just another tired manifestation of the same psychic impulse. Climate change, energy scarcity and the proliferation of nuclear weapons - these are now the skewers on which human destiny is apparently impaled. And yet, these purveyors of apocalypse are uniquely different from the scare stories that predate them in that they are all products of Enlightenment thinking, grounded on rationalist and secularist principles. Scientists, not priests, now ululate for our collective future. Science, not scripture, now foretells the gruesome detail of our forthcoming demise. (RecruitmentFlash)
  • Newspapers Will Lose 100% Of Classifieds by 2020
    As reported by MediaPost, during a panel discussion hosted by the Society of Editors in England last week, editor Alan Rusbridger of the Daily Guardian predicted that daily newspapers would lose 100% of their revenue from classified advertising by 2020. With dailies losing print advertising at an average annual decline of 9% and web advertising growing at roughly 50% annually, it's inevitable that dailies will look very different 14 years from now, if they even exist at all.
