Indeed.com Wins Best Job Search Site

Indeed.com took top honors among job search sites in a holiday poll over at Lifehacker. The straightforward search site ranked no. 1--Monster, Careerbuilder, LinkedIn, HotJobs and Craigslist rounded out the top six.
Lifehacker says of the site: "Indeed isn't a full-service job search site where you post your resume and hope for calls from employers, but if you know what kind of work you're looking for, its impressive meta-search (complete with email alerts and RSS feeds) is worth a look."
You can see all of the site's job tools here

Indeed pulls listings from job sites, company sites, newspapers and associations. You'll be glad to know that Indeed reports "872,086 new jobs in the last 7 days."
The site may still be new to many job seekers, but it was launched in 2004. If you're curious about its ownership--"Indeed is privately held, with institutional investors including The New York Times Company, Allen & Company and Union Square Ventures," according to the site.

InterSearch UK Press release 2008 executive club

InterSearch UK Press release 2008 executive club

19/12/2008



Imagine the scene…

You’ve spend hours putting together your CV (let’s face it – it was 10 years ago since you last needed one!), you spend days trawling through job adverts and recruitment companies to find suitable opportunities, until finally, with anticipation, hope and on occasions a wing and a prayer you send it off.

And then.....?

Well nothing, you hear absolutely nothing! Not even a ‘thanks but no thanks’, or a thank you for your time and effort, just possibly a minimal acknowledgement to say the least.

It’s a common complaint held against most recruitment companies; just a sheer lack of candidate care. Which is why InterSearch in the UK, a global executive search firm, has always had this objective – to keep focussing on candidate care and to treat executive candidates exactly how they should be treated.

InterSearch in the UK believes that candidates deserve to be treated with respect and courtesy; after all don’t candidates become future clients?

InterSearch in the UK believes that they deserve more and to help achieve this objective they have enhanced their care of candidates with the recent launch of an on-line ‘Executive club’.

Paul Holmes, Managing Director, InterSearch in the UK says ‘It is no secret that Recruitment firms fill up their database with candidates in the anticipation of securing new clients, which is unfair and misleading to candidates. It’s also extremely rare that firms have the courtesy to reject their applications, which is the most common complaint that our candidates let us know about.’ He goes on to say ‘it’s all very well and good adding people onto your database, but with no after care how can recruiters be certain they are still actively looking for jobs, and even if the perfect role for them became available, finding that candidate again would be like looking for a needle in a haystack; it’s both misleading to candidates and clients.

‘One of the ways we have looked to ensure we value our candidates is by launching our exclusive invitation only, ‘Executive Club’. The InterSearch Executive Club is designed to give Members exclusive access to a premier executive portal, enabling them to develop business networks, their careers and business knowledge and understanding. The Executive Club helps candidates to focus on building a valuable company and a more rewarding career whilst helping to enhance their quality of life – in short we want to reward and acknowledge candidates who send us their details, and this is one of the ways we hope to achieve this’.

IRC Recruitment members on the List of the Most Influential Headhunters in the World

IRC Recruitment, global alliance of executive search firms, congratulates two member firms on making the BusinessWeek List of the Most Influential Headhunters in the World.

In a November release of Business Week listing the most influential headhunters in the world, two of our member firms were showcased:

Hofirek Consulting: headquartered in the Czech Republic and Slovakia with offices in Karlovy Vary, Prague, Ostrava, Hradec Kralove, Brno, and Bratislava.
And
Madison MacArthur: headquartered in Toronto, Canada with satellite offices in New York and Michigan.

BusinessWeek has introduced an exclusive database of the world's most influential headhunters, with comprehensive information on 100 of the top global executive recruiters. So what is it that separates these executive recruiters from the rest? A number of factors were considered in selecting these 100, including their individual reputations; their years of headhunting experience; the global scope of their recruiting practices; their accessibility and responsiveness; their high visibility within the client markets they serve; the recognition they enjoy within their firms and/or global executive search communities. It is important to note that their individual reputations are often the most important reason that corporations engage these headhunters.
Hofirek Consulting and Madison MacArthur are prime examples of the global quality of service that is consistent across the IRC Recruitment alliance of over 150 senior search consultants, in over 50 cities, spanning 4 continents.

How to Fight the New Recession

How to Fight the New Recession
By Bill Radin

Here we go again: Another soft economy.

I learned a lot from the last two, so let me give you some quick ideas about how to fight back.

First, take a deep breath. If you're resilient, persistent and willing to make a few adjustments, you'll do just fine. You may not make as much money in a slow economy, but that's okay—you're in survival mode now.

I'm hoping you set aside some of your boom-market earnings for a rainy day, because that rainy day is here. If you didn't, you'll know to do so next time, since all markets are cyclical.

The good news is, you're still in business. Now is the time to dig in and gain market share as your competitors struggle. When things pick up—as they always do—you'll be great shape, ramped up and ready to prosper.

To prepare yourself for the immediate future, here's a preview of coming attractions, and how to deal with some new job-market realities.

1. Poor-quality candidates won't cut it. In a candidate-driven market, people with average or marginal skills are generally acceptable to employers. No more. From now on, you'll need to be much more selective, and associate yourself with a higher level of talent.
2. The 80/20 rule flips upside down. In a strong employment market, companies hire in duplicates. In other words, they'll fill multiple positions that require the same set of skills. So 80 percent of your placements can come from 20 percent of your clients. But in a weak economy, companies trim the fat and eliminate overlap, which means that your next 10 placements may very well come from 8 different clients, or even 8 different skill sets.
3. Waste not, want not. Now's the time to improve your presentation skills, learn new ways to handle objections and concerns, and close like there's no tomorrow. With fewer opportunities to make placements, you won't have the luxury to do sloppy work or let placements slip through your fingers.
4. Follow the money. Beating a dead horse is fine if you like the exercise. But if there's no pulse in your niche market or no demand for the skills that would normally define your desk specialty, be receptive to new opportunities—even if they take you into new or unfamiliar territory.

During the 1991-92 recession, I made the switch from filling mid-level engineering positions to filling sales and marketing jobs. In 2002, I switched my desk again, from sales to general management and director-level roles. Why? Because that's where the market took me.

I'm not suggesting you jump ship in the hopes of finding a pot of gold. But when times are tough, it makes sense to keep an open mind and add value wherever value is needed.

CommodityCareers.com, LLC Launches Global Commodities Career Portal

CommodityCareers.com, LLC Launches Global Commodities Career Portal

Energy Executive Search Specialist, Audrey Cullen Davis, launches online portal focused on the international commodity career sector to make immediate impact in environmental, energy, metals, and agricultural job markets


September, 2008, Stamford, CT – CommodityCareers.com, LLC, announces the official launch of its niche online job portal focused on serving energy, metals, agricultural, and other commodity markets. The website is a global resource designed for serving recruiter, professional, and corporate communities.

The foundation of the site was developed by Audrey Cullen Davis, Co-Founder and President of First Call Associates, a highly regarded boutique search firm focused on energy trading, marketing, and risk management. Prior to co-founding First Call Associates, Davis was a trader and marketer of energy commodities. She holds a BA in Economics from the University of Connecticut.

Davis commented on why she created CommodityCareers.com, “With the influx of capital to the commodities market, I have seen a sharp increase in the demand for talent. Since there are only a handful of specialists to manage this heightened client demand and limited dedicated online resources to help us with our research combined with the general popularity of job boards, it seemed logical to create a resource like CommodityCareers.com. ”

Out of the 40,000 plus members of the Industry Association of Employment Websites, IAEW, less than 1% is dedicated to the commodities and environmental markets, and none are specific to trading. To better serve its target market, the navigation on CommodityCareers.com is similar to a trading and marketing desk, directing users to front, middle, and back office job postings. The Site’s talent pool includes a database of well-vetted professionals; qualified candidates range from marketing and trading in the front office to risk management in the middle office and contract negotiations in the back office.

Davis has chosen Thomas B. Newman as the Company’s President and COO to lead the management, operations, and development of Commodity Careers. In this role, he will leverage his 25 years of professional experience in international business to implement the Company’s strategic global expansion plan. Newman holds a Masters degree from The American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird) and a BS in International Economics from Arizona State University.

Newman commented, “Our goal since day one has been to build a leading industry technical solution, including a proprietary search engine, while ensuring our users also find the Site useful, interesting, and aesthetically pleasing. Our development team has received positive feedback from early adapters. The Site’s search engine has the ability to drill down to specific functional expertise required in a trading environment. This innovative approach makes the recruitment process more efficient and ensures a greater return on our customers’ human resource investments. ”

Davis has also chosen Puja Lakhlani as Director of Technology Planning and Development. In addition to overseeing the Site’s development since 2007, she will also be responsible for international marketing and the company’s customized cultural content. She holds an MBA from the University of Miami and a BS degree in Computer Science from Florida Atlantic University.

CommodityCareers.com’s customized resources include relevant job opportunities, a well-vetted candidate database, insightful articles and industry information, campus recruitment, social networking integration, and search engine optimization that targets the appropriate audience within wholesale and retail commodities marketing and trading.

HR Knowledge Base

Actonomy - Largest HR knowledge base for recruiters by recruiters


Press release


(ENGLISH -Nederlands verder in deze mail)

Ghent, Belgium - August 19th, 2008 - Actonomy, with HQ in Belgium and customers world wide, launches the largest HR knowledge base for recruiters by recruiters, to help decrease the gap in the labour market supply and demand.

“It is an important enhancement to traditional search techniques.” says Filip de Geijter, CEO Actonomy “Often recruiters conclude they don’t find any suitable candidate, while they’re looking at a database with several 10.000’s or even 100.000’s of CV’s.” It also supports recruiters using new channels such as social networks like LinkedIn, Facebook, Netlog, and others.



(NEDERLANDS)

Gent, Belgie - 19 Augustus 2008 - Actonomy, gevestigd in Gent en wereldwijd actief in next generation searching & matching software voor de HR sector kondigt de lancering aan van de HR kennisdatabank voor recruiters door recruiters, een belangrijke bijdrage tot het verkleinen van het onevenwicht in de arbeidsmarkt.

“Dit betekent een belangrijke meerwaarde voor de huidige zoek- en matchingsystemen, waarbij recruiters soms concluderen dat ze geen kandidaten met geschikte eigenschappen vinden, terwijl ze over een databank beschikken met meerdere 10.000'en of 100.000'en kandidaten” aldus Filip De Geijter, CEO van Actonomy. Tevens helpt dit recruiters bij het zoeken via de nieuwe kanalen die zij gebruiken zoals social network sites LinkedIn, Facebook, Netlog, en dies meer.
