A Funny Story About (Not) Searching

One of the many things I’ve learned in the process of co-authoring a couple of books for the recruiting industry is that professional sourcing of suitable, available candidates is a skill unlikely to be acquired quickly and potentially worth excellent remuneration for those who master it.

But you would think that people looking for candidates for Google would have some good search tools available, wouldn’t you?

Jeff Barr’s Barr’s post Google Can’t Google? would have to make you wonder. A winceworthy post, I would think, for any of the recruiters involved. Jeff gets and shares a laugh over it.

And don’t miss the comments. Ouch!
