Best Practices: Reduce Hiring Guesswork
Ask any of the "Big Five" consulting firms which problem
areas urgently need attention at most companies today, and
invariably theyâll tell you that high on the list is the need
to find and keep qualified people. Traditional recruiting and
retention strategies considered satisfactory not too long ago
are outmoded and insufficient in todayâs fierce employment environment.
In meeting this critical need to find qualified people, many
companies are turning to the Internet to find experienced professionals.
Companies are posting job openings on Internet job sites or on their own Web site.
For example, www.joboptions.com
charges $2,500 a year for unlimited access to its keyword-searchable resume
bank. It currently includes approximately 67,000 resumes, and it will
notify you when new resumes come in that fit your job description. Other
resume databases include: www.monster.com,
www.careercity.com, www.hotjobs.com and
