    • Talent management programs are an absolute necessity
    • Employers must be able to court the “reluctant jobseeker” now more than ever.

    • Misconception exists that employers can be stubborn with hiring demands
    • The right employee is still hard to find
    • Flexibility is key when evaluating any candidate
    • See the big picture
    Focusing on singular qualifications is not effective
    Do not use salary, years experience and the like as singular decision drivers
    Recruit attitude, drive and culture fit over key definitions
    "The (best) firms all offer good people, sound methods and a wealth of experience, but individual chemistry between advisor and client is crucial.“

  • Searching for and Distributing Information
    In general, the key characteristics of Web 2.0 are:
    Web-based applications can be accessed from anywhere
    Simple applications solve specific problems
    Value lies in content, not the software used to display content
    Data can be readily shared
    Distribution is bottom-up, not top-down
    Employees and customers can access and use tools on their own
    Social tools encourage people to create, collaborate, edit, categorize, exchange, and promote information
    Network effects are encouraged; the more people who contribute, the better the content gets
    Information regarding sought after skills are readily apparent
