Master Burnett and recruiting über-guru Dr. John Sullivan have an article that works for both recruiters, and for candidates. They start by reminding companies about a point that should be obvious:

Discovering what applicants can read about your organization online

It should come as no surprise that when candidates are deciding whether or not to accept a job opportunity or target a specific employer during a job search, information found online plays a major role.

Sullivan and Burnett then list the top sources candidate use to look up info on companies. The major search engines are obvious, but Sullivan lists other sources that may not be so obvious.

1. Corporate recruiters should read it for sources check up on the buzz about their company.
2. Candidates should read it to make sure they’re not missing an easy source of intel.

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
