Guide: Practical Tips for Remote Hiring
- There’s a new job board for recruiting graduates from college. Gradspring, still working on its website, is focusing on entry-level jobs — only those with a physical workspace, not working from home. Job-seekers, not job posters, are charged.
- “Meet the founders, not the recruiters” at AngelList, for job-seekers looking for startup jobs.
- Fraser Hill launched the in-house, corporate version of the recruitment training mentioned a couple of weeks ago.
- SortBox (explained here) is a new way to collect and filter job applicants. The company says it is “not trying to take on other tech tools in this space such as Taleo or Resumator — most businesses don’t need that level of complexity” and that it is the “perfect tool for small businesses, startups, or recruiters.”
- Back to that recruiting-with-Facebook topic that seems to have touched a nerve, there’s a new site for doing so: Silp.
- HireRabbit is in the business of creating Facebook pages for employers. It’s in private beta, and operates out of India.
- Relaunching with multiple new features: AfterCollege. Among the features is an “employer talent network,” where a recruiter can connect with students, recent grads, applicants, and potential applicants, and send messages to them. (It’s an idea I think has legs, reminding me of something Jobfox tried that was a little similar but, in Jobfox’s case, didn’t really take off). There are other new features, some a tad reminiscent of LinkedIn, like profiles with vanity URLs. With AfterCollege, you can get recommendations from people even if they’re not registered on the site.
