We will give a heads up when we make new postings on the blog and offer up a few extra links if we come across something that might be of interest.
Employers post a free description of their job and they can either list the price range they are willing to pay or they let the potential employees bid on the projects/part-time work/full-time work. Employers are not required to hire anyone if they don’t like the bids or the quality of the applicants. They are also able to send private messages to candidates. Right now this style of the job board focuses on recent graduates and college students. One thing that stood out to me was the fact that employers are able to rate their employee on the website once the job is complete. Those who are bidding are also able to see other people’s responses.
This offers an interesting chance to reach out to those about to enter the job market and offer internships, paid/unpaid/lowest bid/best resume, and tap into the college talent pool.
While limited to Boston at this time, they do have an option to be notified when a Jobaphiles is available for their area.
What are your thoughts on this site? Have you come across anything like this before?

Clever play on Shiatsu massage technique. I wonder if anybody has ever tripped at the bottom of an escalator checking out this spa ad? Even if it takes a few snagged shoes, the message should get across in the 2 seconds passing.

Here is the print ad:

This is not necessarily straight recruitment advertising but more of a PR and branding move; but still, they are hiring... I wonder how hard all the people who are submitting their names are going to get pelted with marketing material later?

Found this video for the Cheesecake Factory via ere.net.
The video cost $30,000 and took about two months to produce. It is a 4 minute video and people normally stick around to watch until around 3:48 minutes. The 4 minute video has 4 topics it covers, devoting about 1 minute to each. Aside from posting online, those that are hired and are running through the new hire orientation watch the video. There is a reported average of 40,000 people watching the video per year.
What are your thoughts on the presentation? One thing that disappointed me some was the fact it was not on YouTube.com. Those that work there and blog could easily post it to show their friends and spread the word. It can, however, be found through Google Video.

Came across this article about the benefits and what to expect when you start up a recruitment blog and it made some great points.
I think the strongest benefit of a corporate recruiting blog is the development of an open discussion and connection with your potential candidates. They are able to experience a different view point that might make them feel like they are already in the door and make them more comfortable when it comes time for the interview. Open blogs help tear down the initial hesitation you might find in applicants for certain fields as well. You can use them to dispel uncertainties and rumors about application processes while helping candidates realize that their potential careers are within reach.

Military or not, emphasis on stability might be what candidates are really looking for right now.

It's a dirty game as the Mac and PC wars continue. This time PC takes the upper hand and competes with Mac's user friendly interface. Mac's response...we'll have to wait and see.

If anything, this would at least catch some attention... Although it makes me wonder how potential candidates would then look at the agency. Either way it is one of those that catches my eye and makes me laugh a little
