Great feedback on my premium job board from a recruiter I helped
I wanted to quickly share a nice piece of feedback I got from Keili Glynn, a recruiter who used my job board:
“I was responsible for finding two experienced Web Analytics Systems Analysts. A candidate I contacted suggested I post the open position on www.webanalyticsdemystified.com. The job board on this industry site is user-friendly and inexpensive compared to many other job boards, but the greatest benefit was that it targeted the exact population of analytics professionals we hoped to reach.
I also contacted Eric Peterson in hopes of getting advice from a known industry expert and he graciously agreed to speak with our team. During our call, he provided very useful information to help us market our open positions. The tips he gave us were invaluable in attracting the right candidates; he helped us see what was enticing about the position from an industry perspective and target our search to those that would best fit the role. Additionally, Eric offered to post information about our open jobs on his blog, which helped generate more candidate traffic and interest in our company. Eric’s guidance, knowledge and support were hugely beneficial in our recruiting effort. His commitment to the web analytics field and its community are remarkable. Eric’s advice, support and continued follow-up are a testimony to his dedication and professionalism.”
You cannot see me blushing, Keili but thanks for the great feedback!
Keili highlights what is likely the primary advantage my job board has over those at Monster, Yahoo!, etc. You can actually talk to me about the position and I’m more than happy to provide feedback and guidance as I’m able.
One recruiter asked me why I do this and the answer is simple:
- Because I’m honestly interested in helping companies find people to manage web analytics systems, knowing firsthand (and secondhand, and third-hand) how much smart people mean to the success of analytics efforts.
- Because I’m excited to hear about what companies and recruiters are hearing in the marketplace regarding available talent, salary considerations, and the overall level of experience they’re seeing.
- Because I’m interested in helping companies with the entire process of staffing for analytics through my Web Analytics Staffing Support strategic engagement.
If you have an open position for someone with web analytics experience, please consider my job board and if you advertise, I look forward to speaking with you soon.
