Online Recruitment Innovators

“I remember when this was all fields, as far as the eye can see!” When I was young, this was one of my Dad’s favourite phrases.   With the passing of time, some of us older geezers can now say this about the Online Recruitment industry. 16 years ago (or thereabouts) an industry was born. Pioneers...

In Praise of Recruiters

As a recruiter of some 24 years now, I have become wearily familiar with my chosen profession being traduced and derided, along with other careers and jobs, such as estate agents, lawyers, and traffic wardens.  24 years ago this week, I got married.  I was only 21, and immediately afterwards (the next week) joined HMS...

Request For Help – TwitWordy

Don’t laugh. OK, laugh a bit if you like.  I am looking for a developer to help realise an idea I have, which I believe has the potential for success.  This is a personal project, and in return I am willing to offer up to a 50% share in the eventual product.  Like many people,...

BIG VERN’N’THE SHOOTAHS

Like many teenagers, I tried my hand at playing an instrument and being in a band.  I was in several bands actually, but most were severely held back by my inability to play drums to even a mediocre standard.  I liked playing drums, and still do, but just not enough to dedicate any serious time...

Product Placement

You may have noticed that earlier this week, the ban on product placement on British television has been lifted.  Whether you have yet formed an opinion on this or not, this is a decision that will enormously affect your relationship with the box in the corner, or the shiny slab on your wall. In this...

How is my blogging?

Much as I detest self-referential blogs that only ever talk about the “art of blogging”, and how hard it is, their social media stats, bounce rates, comment ratios etc, I’m going to go ahead and write one now.  Forgive me. I’ve been writing running and contributing to blogs for a couple of years, but only...

Displacement and Customer Manipulation

OK, this may appear a little rambling, but I promise to get to the point (and it is recruitment and job board related).  My home town of Airdrie was the first in Scotland to install CCTV cameras in 1992, monitoring the general public.  12 cameras were installed, and a study was commissioned soon after, to...

Wonderful WordPress Websites

Created in 2003, WordPress has hugely outgrown its original mission as a simple platform for blogging enthusiasts.  Now one of the most popular pieces of open-source software on the internet, WordPress has evolved, and been embraced as, the most accessible and user friendly content management systems (CMS) for websites.  Catering for all users, from amateur...

No More Than They Deserve

It’s a competitive world, and never more so than now.  We all want our fair share, or at least what we think is our fair share.  Employers want to attract better employees, candidates want to get better jobs, with more pay, and websites want more traffic.  However, very few of us actually believe we are...

Website Personalisation MKII

“Whoah! Hold on a minute”, you say, “not all websites are suitable for that kind of personalisation. It won’t look professional to our clients, and will only encourage Rec to Recs and rival agencies to headhunt my best recruiters”. I’ve got news for you, your rivals, and headhunting agencies already know who all your recruiters...
