  • Is The Job Description An Endangered Species?

    July 1, 2015

    Several leading business journals have recently declared the job itself, as a vehicle for packaging work, to be on the endangered species list[i]. Commenting on the same phenomenon, Savage describes “the rigor mortis of the industrial era” where the division of work and managerial supervision represented “structured distrust.” As the industrial era is replaced by the knowledge era, he predicts, both jobs and managers will be gone[ii].

  • Turning Your Job Board into an Online Community

    July 1, 2015

    Ask 100 recruiters why they don’t write better job postings and 98 will say they don’t have the time. They’re responsible for too many reqs, too many interviews, too many hiring managers with the communication skills of a brick. The truth, however, is that they don’t think it matters..
