Importance of a blog?

Posted on | June 2, 2013 | No Comments

How important is your blog to a job interview? Can a good blog get you a job with the prospective employer? In fact, do employers even review a blog of a job seeker during interview cycle? That’s a million dollar question.

So we put up this question to potential high ranking employers from across different fields and asked them the relevance of a blog to recruitment.

How much caffeine do we drink?

Posted on | April 13, 2013 | No Comments

coffee beansIt is no secret that a modern professional worldwide is addicted to caffeine. We take more of it every day in the form of Tea, Coffee, Energy drinks and even Soft drinks. We can’t seem to miss a day without drinking our favorite cup of Starbucks and not being irritable. And what’s more, we seem to get more done if we have our daily doze of caffeine. Companies, as a result, routinely offer caffeinated products in their in house cafe’s (or corner coffee machines) which we eagerly gulp down as our birth right.

These products are usually marketed as a great way to boost our energy levels and help keep us stay focused on our daily mundane tasks. That might be really true in certain circumstances like when we pull an all nighter to meet a tight deadline. And yes, it does help in keeping us awake at work when we have had sleepless night.

5 mediocre ways to find a job using Twitter

Posted on | May 7, 2009 | No Comments

Are people searching for jobs using Twitter? At Personforce we have no idea, but it seems like an interesting idea. We recently made a feed of jobs posted across our network available on Twitter.  Follow Personforce on Twitter to see the latest jobs right in your feed.

There are a variety of ways you can use Twitter to aid your job search. Some of them aren’t actually that useful (yet) and are kind of mediocre (right now), but you never know how important they will become someday. So here is our list of 5 mediocre ways to find a job using Twitter:

1. Follow your favorite job sites on Twitter. Many of them publish a feed of featured listings.

2. Track the hashtag #jobs using Twitter search. Most job listings are tagged, so you can see what jobs people post to Twitter using Twitter Search. Frankly the volume of postings is so high it’s hard to make sense of the results.

3. Follow the companies you’re interested in working for on Twitter. Follow some of the interesting people who work at those companies.

4. Write a professional description of yourself and tag the post #resume

5.  Try using Twitter job search engines to browse through the job postings on Twitter.

Right now, I don’t think too many of these strategies are producing high dividends for job seekers (it’s probably easier to lose your job using Twitter than finding one right now). But hey, in a couple of years this might be an more important channel for finding jobs.

Search for jobs by tag

Posted on | May 5, 2009 | No Comments

Greetings! A small UI change to report on. We recently updated our job posting process so employers need to tag the jobs they post on our network. We hope this will make it easier for you to browse and find similar jobs.

In the last week, employers have created over a thousand unique tags. You can browse through them all at:

We like to think of each tag page as a little “mini job board” that aggregates the postings from around our network.  Some popular tag pages are for our Engineer Job Board, Intern Job Board, Developer Job Board, Software Job Board, Software Engineer Job Board, Advertising Job Board, PHP Job Board, and HTML Job Board.

You can continue to search all the jobs on our network at:

Hopefully this makes it easier to search for similar jobs! Happy job hunting.
