I stumbled upon this site tonight and just had to share! This website is called StartUpers, and as per its own title, it is a jobsite for innovative startups. You can either look for or post up jobs, or you can view resumes.
This is purely a board for start-up companies and people who want to work with them. Almost all the job opportunities are in California, with just a few exceptions. If you look at the job page, at the bottom there’s a link for “crusty postings” – i.e. ones that date back before March 2008. LOL 🙂 There’s also a page for VCs for companies needing funding. Checking out the resume section, there are people listed in all areas, from marketing to programming to C-level execs who’ve had experience with launching start-up companies. There’s even a page dedicated to recruiters! Check this resource out, and of course, follow them on Twitter!

Hi all, the next post on ERE Inside Recruiting is ready! Check out Emerging Web 2.0 Technology in Recruiting on ERE.
Check out this post on ERE’s Inside Recruiting! What worked and what didn’t at the conference…
I had the absolute pleasure of spending about an hour with Joel Postman, a PR contact referred to me by the wonderful Marie Domingo, while I was in San Francisco. We chatted after the Web 2.0 conference was officially over and I was waiting around for my red-eye flight. While we chatted, we threw around some ideas and discussed how some folks who blog, regardless of the industries in which they write, are just downright mean to both their readers and their colleagues. Joel told me he’d been thinking about writing a post about this very issue, and I just read it here. I think there is so much truth to this and I’m glad he had the gumption to write it out. He calls out those who have “gained their fame through a first-mover advantage and are ultimately, well, jerks who use bullying and other questionable tactics to generate traffic.”
But, he says, there is good news in that the very social aspect of blogging will eventually show the true colors of these folks and expose them for the jerks that they are!
I will add a bit of advice to this, and that is to all the folks out there who are relatively unknown bloggers – don’t let the cewebrity jerk bloggers intimidate you, and don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you yourself have to be a jerk in order to become popular. Be true to your writing style and have patience 🙂 And remember that what goes around eventually comes back around!
I am having a wonderful experience here in San Francisco attending the Web 2.0 Expo! I just wanted to provide the link to where my updates and information will be posted for this particular conference. You can read all my updates on ERE’s Inside Recruiting page.
Look for more posts in the next couple of days, and be sure to check out the post about Yahoo!’s new SearchMonkey tool!
A note to all my blog readers who work in research and sourcing, I have a favor to ask of you. In June, I will be attending the Fordyce Forum in Las Vegas, and have been asked to give a presentation there on a research topic. I am humbled to do this, and have chosen to make my presentation on using research effectively.
In my desire to make this presentation as relevant as possible to all areas of recruiting research, I have created a brief survey asking about the use of research within various recruiting organizations. I am polling recruitment agency owners and recruiters, corporate recruiters and HR professionals, and vendors as well as telephone and internet researchers and sourcers alike in order to get a good sampling. I would love to have you take a moment to complete this survey and contribute to the results, which I will review during my presentation on June 5th.
I am going to close this survey on Saturday so that I can begin analyzing the results. Thanks for helping me out with this project!
