How the Analytics Demystified job board helped Musicians Friend
Back in July I posted about a job that was listed in the Analytics Demystified job board by Musician’s Friend in Ashland, Oregon. I recently heard back from So Young Park who was doing the hiring — she had successfully filled the position, thanks to my job board, and her new hire turned out to be a long-time reader of my blog!
According to Ms. Park:
“I recently submitted a Web analyst posting on www.analyticsdemystified.com. Not only was the entire process quick and easy, but the quality and enthusiasm of the analytics candidates I received was significantly greater than those from any other job board I used. I ended up hiring a regular reader of Eric T. Peterson’s weblog and he was local to boot!”
The fact that the candidate was local was huge for So Young — relocation costs can run into the tens of thousands of dollars and experienced web analytics practitioners are sometimes difficult to move. She estimated the cost savings associated with finding someone local to be as much as $10,000 and if you roll in the amount saved by not using a professional recruiter the savings goes well over $30,000!
Congratulations to So Young Park and Musician’s friend on making this critical hire!
