Posted by JamesT

When we look at a typical ‘day in the life’ of a recruiter the tasks may vary, the activities may vary, and of course the results may vary. But what doesn’t change is the fundamental challenge of finding, attracting, and engaging candidates and getting them to express interest and apply for jobs.

Resumes in Real Time: Profiling Dynamic Profiles

Posted by Talemetry Today

You’ve probably heard that recruiters hate reading resumes, or are too inundated with them for candidates to really stand out, but that’s not necessarily true. Recruiters hate looking at resumes of unqualified applicants. Any talent acquisition professional doing a search for a hard-to-fill role requiring direct sourcing will tell you that, in fact, finding the perfect resume – or its proximity – is one of the most thrilling parts of the job.

Problem is, it doesn’t happen very often. As far as most line recruiters are concerned, if you don’t look good on paper, you don’t look good for a job, no matter how good a job you’d actually do.

Posted by JamesT

How about the first time you used a GPS, when suddenly, you knew that wrong turns, bad directions and getting lost became, in an instant, a thing of the past? Or how about the first time you fast forwarded through a commercial on your DVR?

These technological breakthroughs may seem kind of, well, boring by today’s standards, but each of these technologies accomplished the rare feat of true innovation: completely shattering the old way of doing things for something far more efficient and effective.
