Ten Principles for Recruiting An Integenerational Workforce from John Sumser.
(June 26, 2007) Late last week, after a thousand missed intersections, I finally had a chance to walk through the latest version of Itzbig. Long term readers will remember that this is the next project from Jim Hammock and Hank Stringer who were ground zero for Hire.com. With the old company in the solid hands of the team at Authoria, Hank and Jim have set off on another, non-competitive adventure.
Our market has plenty of non-overlapping opportunities. Hank and Jim looked for the next available piece of friction in the marketplace. They routinely chase down business opportunities and make the market a better place to operate.
This time, they've focused on the job board segment. Itzbig brings real time matching to the job hunting process while giving recruiters a clear understanding of a candidates match against job requirements. It's different than a job board while accomplishing similar functions.
Itzbig is a bilateral recruiting communications tool. Jobseekers and Recruiters communicate with the job while gaining an understanding of the market from their perspective. Market availability data helps both sets of users to see the reality of their position while they articulate it.
Over the course of the demo, I learned some pretty interesting stuff:
The remarkable thing is that they have managed to build a solid market planning tool while automating the important (yet usually absent) components of the recruiting process. When a customer publishes all of its openings (potential and real), they immediately get a clear insight into labor availability in their marketplace. Since jobs, like personal profiles, can be kept private, the matching still works while the opening remains invisible.
I'm expecting a lot from Itzbig. If you're in Texas and hire high tech people. Have them give you a demo.Send To a Friend
