Professional Networking

Business and Recruitment Network
This is a new (May 2007) network started by UK moderator Simon Benford. Although its progeny is in the UK, it is an international hub and the quality of the connections is very worth the endeavor for relationship building.

Ethics in Recruiting
Ethics professionals and employment industry professionals come together to examine the issues, compare systems, determine existing and proposed standards, governance and enforcement protocols. It is expected that there will be online meetings every two months in addition to BB discussions.

Online Networking for Jobs and Recruiting
This is truly an amazing international network. Ray van den Bel, based in the Netherlands, has created and supplied all types of Web 2.0 and 3.0 tools, widgets, and wikis for the benefit of his global network of job seekers and recruiters. Optimizing the Groups function, he has several that are quite vibrant; they cater to the many subject matter interests of the recruiters and offer the big bite effect. Go there. You'll be glad you're part of the talent.

Recruiting Network
Social networking for recruiters is what the tag line says. It started as a social networking site for independents. But Craig Silverman, Eric Cullen, and Andrew Stock (busiest guys I know), made it more than just for independents and more than just social networking. Go over there and take a look. Craig promises this will a site where the great quality of people will absolutely drown out everything otherwise.

Splits Networks Hybrids

H3.com - A new concept in splits is "referrals." Referrals create a win-win-win situation. You have a job that needs to be filled. You post it. Someone sees your posting or knows you and the ideal candidate. They refer the candidate. You hire them. Your referrer gets the referral bonus. And if there's more than one referrer, the bonus is split among them. A more academic explanation of the process can be found in the White Paper. View the tour to learn more about referral networks.

For additional splits networks (or to include one you know of), please go to the Splits Networks posting in the Bulletins.
