Though I doubt this is bye bye to Linkedin it was a blast to attend a face to face social networking event last night sponsored by http://www.ultimatehire.com CEO, Mark Thomas. Hosted at MR. The Barbershop a bar, lounge & barbershop in San Francisco. Thank you Mark Thomas!
Only Fog City could offer a recruiter a haircut and a shave while screening candidates face to face. At this real versus virtual job fair I met some of the brightest candidates free: an MBA, a Social Networking Guru who gave me some Twitter tricks I’ll share with you at a later time, a Wealth Management Business Developer, a Java Engineer, a Technical Writer, and a Project Manager. The two hours went by so fast I missed a lot of them!
The highlight of the evening was my conversation with Mark Thomas, CEO of Hireability. This fresh young start-up has a recruiting concept that may revolutionize Talent Acquisition. They offer hiring managers a solution that charges a flat fee by the interview. Hireability does your posting, screening and provides metrics on the whole schpeil for a cost that CEO Mark Thomas claims is less than a Craigs’ List posting.
Talent Acquisition Managers, Staffing Consultants, Recruiters and direct Hiring managers may wish to consider that a new recruiting model might be coming down the pike, fees based on interviews not on hires!
