Should you Outsource your Job Search?
The premise is simple, firms like MyJobHunter.com, JobConcierge.com and JobSerf.com either use computer software, or staff (typically based in India), to submit a candidate's resume to jobs that match certain keywords.
My take? I think this is a waste of money. The numbers don't lie. Ask any corporate recruiter how many candidates he/she hires from online postings and I bet the number is about 10%.
There are no short cuts in a job search. And volume IS important. But it is more strategic to have 50 informational conversations than blast your resume to 500 job postings.
