The recent news about Monster.com earning a profit was all over the newswires. The same news sent their stock soaring 10% as investors regained a bit of confidence in their model.
One article in particular was titled A positive sign for economic times. Now I am a fan of any company creating success, but really? Did people not see rest of the earnings release?
I generally do not repost blogs or articles written by others, however; I have decided to make an exception for a recent article written by sourcing guru Glen Cathey. Glen does a fantastic job of debunking some of the myths regarding the ‘freeness’ and effectiveness of spending hours upon hours scouring the web for candidates. I would encourage every sourcer, recruiter, staffing manager, etc to read this article in its entirety. My hat is off to Glen for this great read!
BEWARE: This post takes a contrarian (yet fact-based!) view of the Internet as a sourcing tool that may be unsuitable to some readers. If you don’t want to hear anything other than how awesome the Internet is for sourcing and recruiting, please stop reading now.
