Got questions about recruiter marketing?
Do you want your passive candidate network to GROW BY ITSELF? Remember, finding passive candidates thru advanced sourcing is useless if you don't ultimately earn money by them being in your network (placing them, having them recommend your services to their quality candidates, etc.).

Do something today you don’t think you can do.
A growing number of employers, including U.S. Cellular, Deloitte & Touche and Intel, are imposing or trying out "no email" Fridays or weekends. While the bans typically allow emailing clients and customers or responding to urgent matters, the normal flow of routine internal email is halted. Violators are hit with token fines, or just called out by the boss.
The limits aim to encourage more face-to-face and phone contact with customers and co-workers, raise productivity or just give employees a reprieve from the ever-rising email tide. Emails sent by individual corporate users are projected to increase 27% this year, to an average of 47 a day, up from 37 in 2006, says Radicati Group, a Palo Alto, Calif., research and consulting firm. And one-third of users feel stressed by heavy email volume, according to a 2007 study of 177 people by the University of Glasgow and Paisley University in Scotland. Many check email as often as 30 to 40 times an hour, the study showed.
Managers complain that rather than confronting problems, employees use email to avoid them by passing issues back and forth in long message strings, like a hot potato. Email reduces face-to-face contact among co-workers and clients; terse, poorly phrased messages further strain those relationships. And it is spilling into weekends, chaining employees to computers when they should be relaxing.

Hat Tip to Krista Bradford for this “find”on her blog:
“…there are professional license databases where you can find CPAs, lawyers, doctors, realtors and any other kind of individual who has to be licensed in order to work. Search Systems offers the original, largest, and most up-to-date directory of state licenses websites.”
This is a subject with legs and it should be of interest to recruiters who use LinkedIn to “find” people these days. Peter Chang, Lead Software Engineer at Simply Hired in Silicon Valley, is complaining that recruiters call him at work and it’s very inconvenient when he has managers within earshot. He says it’s gotten out of hand and he wants to see a stop put to the “abuse”of the LinkedIn system.
