Recruiting metrics, the modern way
05.04.2005 - 22:26 / filled under default
Gretchen over at the Jobsblog [*1] shares some insight in what expectations she has to meet - and not very modern ones:
But at the end of the day, recruiting is still a metrics driven job. People often ask about the types of metrics I use to track the success of my blog. Page views and trackbacks don´t count.Interesting. She confirmed in the comments, that the process for applying at MS has somewhere the possibility to say 'I am here because of the blog!" - so in case you would like to apply, make that note.
When reading this, I was thinking 'what would be a modern way'?
Perhaps "'give me a mail address of your boss, and I would write about what these blogs have had as an impact on me". Or how about "which technorati tag would be good to link to"? Because I am not so sure if hires are a good measurement only. All of the recruiters blogging from that company have saved the company a bigger amount of money in advertisement and PR. :o)
