I want to let you know that Yodle is hiring inside sales reps in our NY, Philadelphia, Charlotte, and Boston offices.
Over the past few months, we have hired many former agency recruiters into sales rep roles. These individuals are doing extremely well and believe their agency backgrounds translate well to our rep roles.
If you come across anyone you want to forward my direction, please feel free.
Ed Newman, a familiar name and face to ERE junkies, is taking over the leadership of Futurestep, an RPO company owned by Korn/Ferry. Futurestep bought the Newman Group (which is speaking about workforce planning in San Diego) in June of 2007.
Jeremy Eskenazi and his firm Riviera Advisors is entering into a four-way business combination. It’s called the Asher Talent Alliance — the first word an acronym for acquire, source, hire, engage, and retain.
The other players are Velocity Resource Group (outsourced, offshore
online resume mining and candidate sourcing); J. Morrison Group
(a boutique recruitment communications agency); and
Iris Libby Recruitment Consultants (recruitment research and
candidate development; whose ERE article you recently read, and you’ll see in San Diego).
It’s not a merger. The four organizations will retain individual ownership and their own individual brands, but will operate under the ASHER
Talent Alliance banner together, hoping companies use them as a one-stop shop.
Today’s Diverse Careers fair in Los Angeles was just that — fair. The 23 vendors and perhaps 800-900 attendees were less than approx. 2,000 attendees at a similar recent fair in the so-called “Inland Empire” (a fancy word for the California desert area, where Diverse Careers is better-known).
Marcel Abandonato, a nice fellow and ex-Wells Fargo recruiter who runs the show at Diverse Careers, says he’s doing more of a “career day” than a “job fair.” That’s for sure: exhibitors included a cleaning-product multi-level-marketer looking for people to help sell the cleaner.
Job seekers didn’t seem all that disappointed to me. Perhaps their expectations were low, as were mine when it came to judging the number of employers present. The fact that he got Wells Fargo and others to pony up for a booth in this economy isn’t all bad. When the economy picks up, Marcel’s outfit seems poised to succeed.
