Recruitment Views

Digg Resumes, I dont think so!

Just launched is a new social networking site or resume site or is it a digg site for resumes! I have no idea but you may want to take a look at this new recruitment oriented site called Talent Spring, which has just launched. I really do not know where to start with his latest web 2.0 offering for the recruitment industry, except to say I just cannot see this one working.

Don’t get me wrong it is a superbly imaginative idea and they get 10 out of 10 for thinking outside the box, but the competition is too huge and for me it just doesn’t cut it when you have the likes of linkedin and jobster who I feel do a better job.

In essence the site is where you post your cv so that your peers can vote on you and then the best rise to the top, making it easier for companies to find the more talented individuals.

I can see it being a bit of fun, but for a serious company looking for talent candidates, I just don’t think so.
