Table of Contents

  • Presentations: A set of recent presentations made by Glenn Gutmacher at recruiting conferences, in webinars, etc., that build on many of the methods taught in the course.
  • Tools of the Trade: A growing list of useful offerings from third-party vendors for sourcing and/or recruiting productivity which are completely free or can be tested under a no-obligation, free trial period.
  • Certifications: Learn more about what technical qualifications exist and how to compare them to evaluate candidates.
  • Free Blind Email & Internet Access: A procedure enabling you to send and receive email messages anonymously. Very useful for confidential hiring needs.
  • Recruitment Newsgroups List: A comprehensive list of more than 200 recruitment-specific newsgroups.
  • Recruitment Listservs List: A less complete, but useful group of listservs for recruiting certain candidate niches and several searchable listserv mega-indices on the Web to put you in the right direction.
  • Companies shutting down, laying off, or downsizing: How to find them early so you can then contact their employees before they get scooped up by other firms.
  • Free Job Posting Sites: A fairly comprehensive list of Web sites that accept job postings from employers free.
  • User groups by location: If you're looking to network with computer techies in particular at the grass-roots level, start with this comprehensive list.
  • Industry associations, conferences and events: Trade groups are a great networking tool for recruiters or job-seekers alike. Most have web sites where you can post jobs, find out about virtual and live events, etc.
  • Employee Referral Programs / Networks: Some thoughts on the traditional ERP, and some third-party sites that enhance it by leveraging personal networks to refer candidates.
  • Books for Recruiters: For those who like having a hard-copy reference, here are some good ones for online recruiting.
  • Newsletters for Internet Recruiters: A list of some shorter-format print and online publications that should be useful, including the associations they are affiliated with.
  • Recruiters Networks: Recruiters are starting to realize that networking on the Internet is highly efficient and mutually beneficial to all. Here are some that can help you now.
  • List of HR Listservs: Networking and picking the brains of one's peers is often the best way to get information, which these listservs are well-suited for.
  • Top Web Sites: Links to the latest statistics of the most-trafficked sites. If you're going to spend time and/or money reaching passive candidates, these are among the biggest pools to tap.
  • Technical Terms Dictionaries / Glossaries: When you're hiring technically-savvy candidates, it helps to know some of the jargon when you're evaluating their resumes.
  • Lookups & Reverse Lookups: Find area codes, postal and zip codes in the US and abroad, values/distances within a range, etc. If you only have the candidate's phone number or email address, these resources can often get you the name and other useful contact information.
  • Friends Networking sites: An extension of the virtual networking concept that Recruiting-Online.com has long espoused, these portals help people network through friend-of-a-friend connections, a la the "six degrees of separation" concept.
  • Autoresponders: Using automated emailing to help maintain communication with candidates when you don't have the time/resources to keep them all "warm".
  • E-newsletters: Despite the growth of blogs in recent years, e-newsletters remain a powerful tool to maintain passive candidate communication, raise employer brand awareness and enhance your credibility within your niche candidates.
  • Corporate and Collegiate Alumni Networking Services: A growing trend among companies to benefit from ex-employees and former students, as well as for recruiters to tap into such pools
