Tonight I was interviews on Joy 94.9 a community radio station in Melbourne. I was the special guest of the weekly 7pm show called "Technogaze - gazing into the past, present and future of technology". I spoke on various topics such as Social Networking, Job Boards, Online Recruitment, Background Searching and job seeker tips. You can download the full podcast or listen to the full show below (the interview starts at around the 9m mark)
Tonight's show will consist of a couple of interviews, providing insight from two perspectives on the Online Recruitment industry. The first interview is with Thomas Shaw, Managing Director of Recruitment Directory. Thomas will bring us his thoughts on how the Web 2.0 phenomenon, particularly social networking and job boards is evolving the industry.
Our second interview will be with Jason Shaw, a recent successful job applicant, who used the tools we're all familiar with. He'll bring us his thoughts on what's good and bad about the various job board sites available, and some good job seeking habits to get into.
And, we'd like to point out that Jason and Thomas, even though they have the surname, are not related. One's from NZ, the other a local boy. We'll leave it an exercise to the listener to figure out who's from where.
We'll also discuss the recent high-profile appointment of an Island Caretaker for the Whitsundays, by Queensland Tourism.
