HiringSolved Racing with the Machine
Posted on May 13, 2013, by Matt Ekstrom
I have to admit. I’m a TED junkie. It’s a goal of mine to give a TED talk one day. For now, I’ll have to stick with local Toastmaster’s groups.
As part of my addiction, I came across the hotness that is this TED talk by Erik Brynjolfsson, the Schussel Family Professor of Management at the MIT Sloan School of Management, the Director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and a Research Associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research. With a string of titles like that, how can you not feel the need to soak up every word?
In case you don’t have time to watch (you should try to make time, though), I’ll try to sum it up with just one quote from the talk:
“The answer is not to try to slow down technology. Instead of racing against the machine, we need to learn to race with the machine.”
Well, it was a bit of coincidence that on that same evening I stumbled across a LI connection of mine pimping his “new” book.
“A quick and easy guide to finding free resumes and passive candidates on the web. Heavy on visuals and light on text, this book is written and designed for the short attention span of recruiters, sourcers and the companies that employ them.”
In this book, you will learn:
- What you should do prior to sourcing resumes online.
- Why you should use more than one search engine
- How to find free resumes on Google
- How to find free resumes on Yahoo
- How to find free resumes on Bing
- Secret search commands that are exclusive to Google
- How to build resume search strings for finding candidates
- How to find resumes your competition has overlooked
- How to use Google resources to find passive candidates
- Research data relevant to resume sourcing and lead generation of passive candidates
- Strategies on how to manage your sourcing research
- And more…
If you’re into this book, I also have a book that teaches you to search on Alta Vista I could loan you.
Point being, we at HiringSolved have a solution that is racing with the machine not against it.
This service WILL save you the money on the book, the time to read the book, the time to learn those 11 strategies and more, and most importantly the time (and implicitly money) spent building complex search strings and searching each search engine one by one.
Recruiters: What’s your time worth? Managers: What’s your recruiting teams time spent doing these things costing your organization in lost productivity?
Why not race with the machine with HiringSolved?
It’s our fault (though a young organization) that we haven’t gotten the word out, but this week HiringSolved has begun the process of going to market in a very aggressive way. Once we do this right (and we will), it won’t be long before you and everyone you know will know about HiringSolved and it’s capabilities. As Shon Burton, the brains behind this cutting edge technology told me the other day, “We’re going to the moon. You can hop on shuttle if you want.”
