Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog

Why Good People Can't Find Jobs -- What You're Up Against - Vault: Blog | Editing | Scoop.it

There's a serous disconnect between companies and potential employees in the United States—one that may be holding our entire economy back. And, contrary to the conventional wisdom, it's a problem that has been caused—and can only be cured by—companies. So says Peter Cappelli in his 2012 book Why Good People Can't Get Jobs. 

 

In Cappelli's view of the state of the modern employment landscape, there are several issues preventing companies from finding the talent they need—and none of them are related to the conventional cries from businesses and the media about a lack of talent in the pool, or the failure of the American education system to turn out people with appropriate skills.

Jacob Maddox's comment, May 11, 2013 10:35 PM
Cappelli's view is right on. The HR systems of most US companies, which could be also said of global international businesses is riding the fast train to failure. Computers will not allow a fantastic potential employee to get in front of the decision makers of the position, if their resume does not match the computers screening process. In my opinion we need to get back to old fashioned screening of meeting either in person or through live web session to analyze and determine the capacity and skill sets that matter to the company.
Martin Gysler's comment, May 12, 2013 5:07 AM
Jacob, your opinion is the same as many people in the world. Maybe someone will hear you ;-)
Veenaga Bhushan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 9:39 PM

Good people never go merry go round to make their immediate destiny, they wait for the person, who identifies the diamond when it is in the core.

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media

A Scientific Guide To Maximizing Your Impact On Twitter, Facebook, And Other Digital Media | Editing | Scoop.it
We’re pretty keen on optimal timing for social media here at Buffer, and I figured it was high time I collected all the information we have about online communication into one place. I’ve collected research and stats on Twitter, Facebook, email and blogging to help you find the best time to communicate with others in each format.The tricky thing I’ve come across is that since the Web is still so new, a lot of the research available to us is conflicting. We really need more time and more studies to get definitive answers about what works best, and the fact that our audience members are constantly changing their own activity patterns makes it even harder to work out for sure. Looking at the latest social media stats seems to only confirm that.So my suggestion would be to use this guide as just that--a guide to help you work out what to test for in your own audience, so that you can see what actually works best in your specific case....
