Interesting career networking site: resu.me

The folks at Resu.me asked me to check out their website, which they are launching to become a job and career networking site for the Millenium generation.

So I checked it out.

Here are the good parts:

  • The focus is on helping people get started quickly. So they enable sign on using facebook connect – no long winded registrations needed.
  • The site makes it possible to import your Linkedin profile – so no need to build a resume . And you get a vanity URL. Mine is http://gautam.resu.me
  • There’s a tab which I think is a cooliris app- so if you are a photographer or other visual artist you can show off your videos and pictures there.
  • It builds an activity stream – which shows what you do on the site, and you can add your blog posts/status updates to that also. It also imports your existing blogs from Blogger, Tumblr, WordPress and Posterous.
  • There’s a stats chart – which promises to be interesting (or depressing, if you find that people are not viewing your profile) 🙂

Things I didn’t quite like or what didn’t work for me:

  • The Reader tab is to enable you to import your OPML file of RSS feeds or one feed at a time. Tried doing that – but it’s not working. The larger question is why would you read your feeds on a career networking site. This is one example of over-engineering features
  • The UI is quite dull and doesn’t engage me.
  • The Jobs section is US centric. There’s no other country mentioned there. Which is quite useless for folks from India. I don’t know why they invited me to check out the site.

So overall I think it needs to focus on getting the job search process done well, and let go of the blogging/reader aspects – or at least tuck it away and not make it so prominent.

Will it become a linkedin competitor? I doubt it. Even millenials have linkedin profiles and networks in place. Getting them to move – even as Linkedin focuses more and more towards being a service focused on jobs – would be tough.

The site also needs to think about how to attract recruiters – and showing them a value that they may not be getting at Linkedin.

Another #socialrecruiting app

 
I’ve earlier blogged about Hireplug, which has an app that helps companies hire via social networks . Now it looks like there’s more such apps
 
Got an email from Stephane who’s the CEO of Work4 Labs, a San Francisco-based startup that develops the Facebook recruiting app, “Work for us.”  
 
He says:
 
We are developing innovative products based on our conviction that Facebook is essentially the world’s largest collection of data-rich, constantly updated resumes.
 
Despite the hype, it is not well publicized that Facebook is a booming means of recruitment.  As companies begin to rebuild their work forces on a limited budget, Facebook recruiting will grow exponentially.
 
Our app is already being used by over 3,000 clients, including Accenture, Cisco, PwC, American Apparel, L’Oréal, P&G, and State Street.  We are in touch with several other major international companies and we are adding over 1,000 companies per month.  In only a few months, our clients have generated over 4 million job views and received 100,000+ applications via Facebook.
 
Some of their Clients are :
 
 
 

Analysis of a company’s Employment Brand on Social Media

We at 2020 Social (http://2020social.com) recently compared the employment brand related conversations of two large IT firms on the social web by bloggers and on social networks.

The analysis looks at trends, themes and sentiments associated with these two IT firms over the period of one month (March 2010) It also has a representative recommendation section on how one of the firms can leverage the social web to build its employment brand.

Please note for confidentiality’s sake all identifiable data has been masked.

We would be happy to share this analysis with people who’d like to explore such a study for their own organization. Do send me a mail to gautam@2020social.com with the subject: Request for Employment Brand Analysis

Do also go through our corporate blog at http://2020social.com/category/blog to understand what we do 🙂
