Seventy-two billion dollars: that’s what corporations spend to find, hire and manage talent. That’s a lot of money. And there’s literally tens of thousands of job boards, ATSs, CRMs and RPOs out there that are clamoring for a piece of the pie. LinkedIn has risen as a major player. but, the game is far from over. Facebook is quietly continuing to blur the lines between personal and professional. And now, with Facebook Skills, they’ve inched just a little bit further into LinkedIn territory. Continue reading

When it comes to buying job postings, companies are just now starting to dip their toes in the Cost-Per-Click (CPC) water, but is CPC-based job advertising really better than the traditional bulk-buy and all you-can-post-models? Continue reading

In the ecosystem of online recruitment products & services, there’s been a lot of buzz around the use of smart phones for job search, and most of the major career sites have invested in mobile offerings.

Back in the 90’s, as the dizzying array of local, niche, and industry-specific job boards and career sites began crowding the market, the process of researching, buying, managing, optimizing, and tracking job postings could be cumbersome, however, and threatened to divert recruiters from their core focus fulfilling the organization’s hiring demands. Thus came the world of Job Advertisement Distribution (JADs). Continue reading

Ken, great points, thanks for your comments. has over 35 million members, with 1+ million new members joining monthly. We've been in business since 1998 (and I hope for many more decades to come). Our effort to create a visual portfolio was not to replace a traditional resume, but to supplement it with a tool that provides people with the ability to present themselves online in a more stimulating way. The industry is slow to change, and applicant tracking systems still require a text resume or word doc, which is why we still provide for a text version that recruiters can quickly cut and paste into their ATS\CRM. The innovation is exciting! Clearly people want a better way to represent themselves online...there's a really great Pintrest page assembled by Randy Krum that has over 200+ examples of resume infographics here:

Ben, I don't think there's any downside to having multiple profiles for yourself, other than the time and labor of having to update them all as your skills & experience change. Maybe just stick with two or three? The more information that you provide online about yourself, the higher the probability that you'll be found by recruiters and people that may want to network with you. It's also great food for search engines.

In the age of social media, your personal brand is king. You are the sales person for yourself. And the cacophony of available self-publishing, self-branding, self-broadcasting tools is exhaustive and overwhelming. Every day, a new social network pops up or some new-fangled job search site promises to make your job search quick, painless, and easy. And yet, most job seekers still must rely on a few pages of largely unformatted resume copy to get noticed. But times are changing. Continue reading

Released in Beta in January, 2013, Graph Search is Facebook’s new people search tool. The name isn't very sexy, but what it can do for recruiters, marketers, and those of you looking to troll Facebook to find a date is actually pretty powerful. Almost scary. Continue reading
