Sourcing = Trick or Treating

Sourcing = Trick or Treating

When you were younger, likely you joined the rest of the neighborhood kids by trick-or-treating on Halloween. Once you got a bit older, you knew which houses had the best candy, and which ones handed out FULL-SIZED CANDY BARS , and then those that handed out toothbrushes in lieu of candy. However, in all my memories of trick-or-treating, I still went to every housebecause, even though I knew that certain houses were known to hand out toothbrushes, I loved looking at the great mixture that I had accumulated at the end of the night. ...

Task Rabbit – What About Task Recruit!

Referring a Current Employee Can Make Sense

By: Jerry Thurber Tuesday May 20, 2014 comments Tags: Employee Referrals, recruiting trends

I think the guy I go to lunch with everyday really would be great as a business analyst in the IT department but I don't think anyone over there takes it seriously when he applies for a job. I want to formally refer him next time they have an opening. We've been having an interesting dialog with some of our customers about whether or not they would include current employees in their referral programs. Our application, Referral Link, automatically searches an employee's network and prompts them about potential candidates they could refer.... Read More
