Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise For Michael Foster's company, AIRS:

"FLIPPING. PEELING. X-RAYING. Sounds like what chefs and radiologists do, right? These are also some of the ingenious tricks executive headhunters use in the age of digital resumes and electronic job searches. AIRS is one of a few firms at the forefront of the burgeoning specialty of Internet recruitment training."--Wall Street Journal

"Michael Foster is the pioneering thought leader of the on-line recruiting process. He has married his understanding of the Internet, technology and process--with a keen understanding of marketing dynamic. Mike's work has dramatically impacted the use of the Internet as a recruitment intelligence and sourcing tool."--Arthur Young, CEO, Recruiter Magazine and Recruiter.com

Powerful new ways to find the best talent online

To compete for the best job candidates, you must recruit successfully on the Net. No other medium lets you search of hundreds of resume banks at once, or go straight to candidates with the precise skills you're seeking. Recruiting on the Web is a hands-on guide to firing up your browser and finding the perfect candidates quickly and cheaply--no matter where they may be hiding.

Author Michael Foster is the founder and CEO of AIRS, the Internet recruitment training company worldwide. In this book he explains how to create a cutting-edge recruiting strategy and system that will slash costs, streamline your hiring process, and attract top talent. You'll discover the latest tactics for posting job openings online, how to search effectively through millions of resumes, and ways to advertise and search in Web communities and forums. Foster explains how to find active job seekers as well as the most desirable catches of all--the silent, "passive" candidates.

Any manager can learn the new rules of Web recruiting with this step-by-step guide--and use them to:

  • Tailor online searches to peruse hundreds of thousands of personal Web pages
  • Utilize new strategies for posting jobs to get maximum results at the lowest cost
  • Infiltrate corporate sites with ingenious--and legal--techniques to uncover choice resumes and hot candidates

One of the most useful books, with this you can search a candidate without joining a job board.

Format: Paperback
I have assigned this book to my graduate students in a Staffing class. I would not have assigned it if I did not think it was a good book.

However, I find myself telling them a few cautionary things:

1. Two weeks after the book came out, it was out of date. This field is moving very, very quickly and keeping up is a real chore...

2. The author is breathless and shameless in self-promotion. His writing style will remind you of why the dot-com bubble burst.

3. Many assertions are not backed up with organized study or proof.

4. It's still the best book I know of to cover this topic, unfortunately. If anybody out there knows of a better or more contemporary one, please post a review here...

Format: Paperback
Having been involved in many aspects of Recruiting for a number of years I can emphatically state that this book is an excellent resource for new and experienced recruiters alike. It does not claim nor pretend to be a resource for all recruiting related topics, as it focuses specifically on harnassing the power of the Internet for recruiting. Readers will find the material to be engaging, well researched, intelligently organized and thoughtfully presented.
There has been a number of books written on this subject over the short but rapidly evolving history of this field and all have helped shape the Internet Recruiting Body of Knowledge. However, where this book truly differntiates itself is in its presentation and organization of information. The author, Mike Foster, (the founder and CEO of AIRS, a recognized global leader in e-recruitment training and information) and truly gives the subject matter the AIRS treatment.
For those who are not familiar with AIRS training, the AIRS treatment is my affectionate term for their tremendous focus on providing all of the information necessary needed to be successful, without unnecessary fluff or smoke and mirrors. Mike's book (much like their training) applies uncommon common sense to take the mystery out of what some consider to be a complicated area.
If you are new to recruiting and are looking for a book to explain all of the in's and out's of the talent acquisition life cycle, this book is not for you. However, if you are new to recruiting or if you are a recruiter and want to learn how to leverage the Internet for competitive advantage this is a great place to start. Make no mistakes, recruiting has been and will always be hard work and this book will not do your work for you, however it will provide any person who is interested the proper foundation for truly taking advantage of the Internet for finding and attracting critical talent, which is a huge competitive advantage for an employer of any size.

This book is terrific. Even with years of recruiting experience and a strong capability using the Web, I benefited from this systematic, comprehensive, detailed and up-to-date review of how to use the Web for attracting and finding the right candidates. It is easy to read, yet packed with great information that is well-organized and easy to access for reference. I highly recommend this book for company recruiters as well as outside recruiting firms and researchers.

7 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Roger E. Herman on April 20, 2003
Format: Paperback
Recruiting top talent has always been an important objective for employers. Over the past few years, we have not seen the competitive intensity in recruiting that we saw in the go-go years of the late 1990s because of the slowed economy. This quieter period has given technologists and strategists a chance to catch up, to develop new approaches, to refine new systems. The new designs for attracting preferred candidates were not even available a few years ago; now they will be essential for employers desiring to find, attract, and hire the best talent to achieve their objectives.
Finding applicants through newspaper advertising will be with us for a while, for some jobs. Even some of those jobs are now offered through major job boards. For the positions beyond low-skilled welders, fast-food burger flippers, and convenience store clerks, employers will increasingly use the internet to recruit. This shift shatters the myth that hiring is local; the web is world-wide. Recruiting is global.
OK, with this historical and future-focused concept in mind, how do we do this on-line recruiting? Foster's book tells us-step by step at a strategic level and at a tactical level. It is not a book for webmasters, recruiting site developers, or code programmers. This book delivers on the higher levels, providing company owners, executives, and managers a valuable insight into what needs to be done and why. Human resource executives will find this volume very helpful. Some HR managers will find it a great tool to open deeper discussion with their superiors; others will find it more valuable in their efforts to understand where their leaders are trying to go.
The book begins, appropriately, with some of the "big picture" of recruiting, then turns to the use of the internet.

Format: Paperback
This is a great, well organized book. It takes you through e-recruitment top to bottom, from setting up an online employee network, to building your Website, working with job boards, and then to Flipping and X-raying sites to find passiove candidates.
I've been a recruiter and manager since 1994 and have been through every Web-recruiting class and book ever offered. AIRS was the first (I went through AIRS I and II in 1998) and is still by far the best training in this field. I read this book when it was published last year and have just purchased a dozen more for new recruiters we plan to hire soon. It is the most systematic, comprehensive "how to" guide for e-recruiting I've found.
