You know the old saying, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat”. While this is true, common sense tells us that some ways will be more painful and exact a greater toll than others.
Enter “Boon”, a new online recruiting site. In theory, this is a great idea and, in some cases, may be a feasible way to skin the hiring cat. In this impersonal digital age of anonymous, fast, hurry, quick, and are we done yet? – this fits.
At the very least, it’s a great way for candidates to stay active and visible in the market and look into their value, worth and marketability on a “nothing ventured/nothing gained” basis.
But for a company with a specific executive hiring need, it’s simply contingent, database recruiting – it’s NOT targeted search. It’s a small pool of available talent and doesn’t capture “best in market” talent. Instead, it provides a small taste test of the available smorgasbord of talent available ON vs. IN the market.
Enter Executive Search.
Human Resources, Human Capital…whatever a company calls the function, it’s important to remember it’s HUMAN. It’s real people searching for talented people – networking, connecting, vetting for fit, and utilizing the multitude of other services provided by a professional search partner. All of it is done in the quest to find top talent in the market for a particular position…for a specific company…with a specific culture.
Targeted. Executive. Search.
When you’re hiring, you owe it to yourself, your company and potential candidates to do so in the most effective way possible. Executive Search helps you identify the best talent with the best possible chance for long-term success.
So, if you’re a candidate looking for your next position, give Boon a look. But if you’re a company that wants to identify the best person for the job you’ve got available, your best option is working with proven Executive Search experts like us, Cornerstone Kansas City.
