Hide recruiter job adverts? No thanks
1:29pm Thursday 18 December 2008

Hippo sneaked in this update to the search function about a month ago. You can exclude adverts from recruiters and your advert is highlighted in the search results. I will let readers and the recruitment industry make up their own mind about this and I believe this will turn off recruitment agencies from advertising on Hippo. What do you think? Recruitment Agency Discrimination? read more...

Concept testing iphone recruitment apps
4:00pm Tuesday 16 December 2008

I am very fortunate enough to be informed daily about new products, innovations and technology from job boards, recruitment agencies and ATS providers - some of that information can be publically talked about, but most (approx 80%) can't be divulged due to various confidentiality agreements. Today I was sent a number of screen shots of an iphone recruitment application in concept development for a [company] in the Australian market. It was very flash, web2.0... but I am not really sure if it will take off (10,000 apps already created for the iphone) read more...

Secure your website!!!
8:00pm Monday 15 December 2008

How many times do you have to tell people that your website MUST BE SECURE?? I have reported this previously to the owner of this leading Recruitment Agency, but it has STILL not been fixed. LISTEN...this is very important and MUST be a top priority, no matter what the cost is. Not only is your directory listings turned on, but you have exposed your server and databases username/password!!! read more...

Communication within the HR community
5:34pm Friday 12 December 2008

There are 2 main HR community forums in Australia - HR Buzz and AHRI's HR Connect These forums are a great chance to have your say on subjects, or talk about a problem you are facing.  I have used both forums in the past, and would recommend users to try both. AHRI's is very limited - as there are no "social" functions for profiles, connecting users, email follow ups etc. Where as, HR Buzz is a community driven site built on a forum platform with integrated social tools. read more...

11:00am Friday 12 December 2008
