Sometimes I feel like the National
Enquirer® has captured the essence of humanity and people thrive
on sensationalism because it’s exciting and sexy.
My personality type doesn’t appreciate the drama so many others
seem to live for. So, when I hear melodramatic statements like HR is Dead and Job Boards Are Dead
they affect me as much as Jesus in Pizza Sauce in NEPA.
However, while watching the video — kind of using it as a vehicle
for meditation, a job board acronym was revealed to me.
Bottle-necked Beyond Our Ability to Reach it Directly
They’re not dead per se… maybe a little like stale pizza crust
though, and most job boards are filled with scam bam thank you
ma’am junk. You don’t know who is behind the postings and you
don’t know if they are even real.
What is a job seeker to do? Well… network with company
representatives/vendors via LinkedIn and niche ning sites, follow my
list of Twitter HR/Recruiters, let
all your friends and contacts know you are searching (and attach a
resume to that email), go to networking events, painfully take the
time to visit company website employment pages.. those are all things
Or, you could check out LINKUP.
All of our jobs come directly from company websites.
Almost any company, big or small, that has a career section on their
website can be found on LinkUp. Currently, we have over 20,625
companies in our database that we monitor every night. Companies
range in size from the largest to the smallest, and from all locations
across the United States.
LINKUP goes quietly in the night like
Santa’s little elves out into cyberspace visiting company website
job boards and gifts the aggregated results to the United States of
Company job boards are still fresh.…. If you are a
Corporate Recruiter be sure to see if your company’s postings are on LINKUP.
