For anyone who has ever gotten frustrated with their job search at any point in their lives (I’m looking at all of you), I highly recommend this Wall Street Journal piece about companies that conduct aspects of the job search on behalf of their clients.
Perhaps part of the reason I found this article so fascinating is because of my recent, serious interest in outsourcing (how do people do it, how can I make it work for me sort of thing). Also, looking for a new job always struck me as the sort of thing that has to be DIY. But so does managing email and lots of people outsource that!
So reading about the companies in the article and their successes and snafus was definitely an eye opener, and I wanted to learn more. I mean if you were actually going to outsource your job search, how would you do it? And what could you learn from others who have done it.
So I looked around to see what I could find and wrote about in my first piece for Stepcase Lifehack. Hope you’ll check it out…
