A Recruiter’s Perspective

Job boards and networking

SilkRoad Inc. recently published its report “Top Sources for Hires 2014” boldly subtitled “The Definitive Report on the Most Effective Recruiting Sources”. Silkroad is a multination human capital management software company and so the data they have compiled from their clients is very interesting, but may not reflect every company’s experience.
The report results do not reflect the experience with job board and engines as recruiting sources that we have at Redfish Technology. We crunched our numbers and have some pretty different results. Read more »

Job Boards and Social Media May Replace Recruiters…
