CEA: Best Corporate Employment Web Site? (#4 of 4)

3 May 2007 at 4:43PM Leave a comment

Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC)
CSC’s CareerSource site got an Honorable Mention in the 2007 Creative Excellence Awards. Their career page is an in-house effort built in using the Lotus Domino® architecture. Perhaps because they use in-site tools, CareerSource runs fast.

Full disclosure: CSC Intellicom was a client of mine back in my headhunter days in the early 1990’s.

+ Direct Link on Front Page? Yes
+ Using http://www.csc.jobs domain? Not really – csc.jobs redirects to csc.com
+ Present benefits information? Yes
+ Present Company Culture Information? Yes, in a Life @ CSC section.
+ Present Job Preview Information? No
+ Response sent to applicant? Yes

+ ATS Engine: CSC built it in house
+ Postings Dated? Yes
+ Show Specific Work Site? No. City locations only
+ Show Explicit Travel Amount? No. Application asks candidates to state how much travel they want.
+ Show Salary Information? No. Application asks candidates to state salary info.
+ Consistent posting formats? Yes, but… (see below)
+ Steps to apply: 1 screen

+ OVERALL: Very good effort for a home-grown system. I’ll take CSC’s application over Taleo anytime. Since this is an in-house project, they can do some tweaking to make it better.
+ GOOD: Can click a link to see all jobs posted in the last 24 hours – a nice feature.
+ GOOD: can browse by location, browse by function/title or do a search.
+ BAD: Job postings have some of the largest paragraphs known to mankind.
+ BAD: “CareerSource is CSC’s virtual recruiting site” misuses the word virtual. They mean “Internet recruiting site”. Or maybe they mean virtuous.

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."
