Sometimes there are temporary periods of low cash-flow for a company or as it is now during the Corona-period where some of the outstanding bills perhaps are not paid by your customers. Or perhaps your business is running great and you need more capital to expand the business? Perhaps you need capital for marketing, product development or you need to invest in new machines? In those situations it could be worth to investigate options for taking a company loan. A company can also of course borrow money and the more assets your company has available the bigger is the chance that you will get a better price for the loan, that is lower interest or other lower costs (depends on the loan actor you choose). When you apply for a company loan the lender side will always do a risk-analysis to be able to decide how big the risk is to lend you the money and that they will get it back. So the more security and assets your company has, like machines or other inventory, the better loan terms you will probably get.

JobShouts™ is pleased to announce its integration with Broadbean, the global leader in job posting distribution and sourcing analytics. The integration was spearheaded by Broadbean’s internal development team and was completed just recently. Kelly Robinson, CEO of Broadbean says, “Broadbean has grown so significantly over the last ten years because of relationships – our relationships with job boards and job board channels, as well, as our many tech partners and of course, our clients. It is for this reason that we are happy to engage and integrate with JobShouts. With the reality that social media is a new and incredibly fast communication tool, Broadbean is eager to work with companies like JobShouts that not only understand that shift, but embrace it.”
This integration should be of particular interest to employers looking to tap into social recruiting. Says Rayanne Thorn, US Marketing Director for Broadbean:“We first met JobShouts through real-time social media channel Twitter, we soon saw the direction they were headed and we were eager to learn more and see if there was a possibility for a partnership. It was when we met in real life that the true partnership was moved forward. Broadbean is innovative and happy to introduce new channels to our clients. We welcome JobShouts to our table.”
JobShouts President, Robin Eads, comments: “Broadbean’s product is a time and money saver for recruiters, which is something we have always strived to be. We are proud to be included in their service offering.”

As an Employer, an Applicant Tracking System is probably a necessity. Or at least that’s what corporate and organizational executives lead you to believe. Nonetheless, it’s in place and you have to live with it. But how smooth is your application process? 9 times out of 10, it probably frustrates job seekers and leaves them feeling like they’re applying to a “black hole” rather than a company with actual people. It’s a brick wall, with no way around, no way to attract the attention of hiring managers other than a sterile profile. Boring, lame, confusing, complicated – these are all typical terms used by applicants when forced to interface with an Applicant Tracking System. Have you walked through your company’s applicant process to see what it entails? Often it seems like an interrogation. For applicants, doing this once is painful enough – doing it multiple times over and over because each company’s ATS is different? Ridiculous. Frustrating.
What are we doing to change this? Is this all we can expect in the future or will there be a more humanistic approach? An ATS is an automated way to collect data. It’s very impersonal and leaves little room for creativity or expression, which should be evaluated factors in hiring your next employee. Why wait until you’ve brought someone in for an interview to find out they don’t have any?
Obviously, no application process will satisfy the OFCCP police, employers and the job seekers 100%. What can we do within this industry and this process to add some human back into Human Resources? I’m curious about your thoughts on this.
If you’re new to Twitter, you might not know that there’s an etiquette to it. If you’re one of those that say, “I don’t get Twitter”, then pay attention. In this world of social online connections, Twitter is a crucial method of communication between job seekers and potential employers and vice versa.
That being said, I’m going to give you some Twitter Tips to guide you on your path to understanding Twitter and making it useful for you.
1. Sign up. This might sound basic but I want to be sure I’m specific so I don’t lose anyone. When you sign up, it’s important to choose an appropriate user name. You want one that identifies you but doesn’t use up too many characters. This is to allow people to “re-tweet” things you say without your username using up too many of those 140 characters. (I’ll explain re-tweet later on in this article)
2. Complete your profile. A complete profile will contain your name, a nice close-up picture, your location and a short bio and a link. This link can be whatever you want it to be – your LinkedIn profile, your blog, your facebook page – whatever. Just make sure that the link you include is an appropriate representation of yourself. Remember, employers use social media too. I recommend using city, state for your location. This makes it easier for locals to find you.
3. Set your preferences. Do not protect your tweets. This is pointless unless you’re only using Twitter to talk to your 5 personal friends in real life. Twitter is a social tool. It’s meant to be used as such. On the mobile tab, you can activate your Twitter account on your mobile phone. This is useful so that you can route direct messages, or messages from certain people to your cell phone as text messages. That way when you’re not on Twitter you can still get that important message. You can also set time preferences, such as “only receive updates between 7 am and 11 pm” or whatever time frame works for you.
4. Find people to follow. This is the key to engaging on Twitter. In order to have conversations with people, or find a way to network with people you don’t know, you have to start by following them. First, decide who you are interested in following. It might be local people, other people in your industry or line of work, others with common personal interests, etc. Of course, you can start by following people you know, too! Often, people we know are a great source for finding other interesting people to follow. Find out who your friends or colleagues are following and go from there.
5. Be patient. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was a Twitter network. Networking takes time and patience. It also takes involvement, so the less active you are the longer it will take. Keep that in mind. The more people you follow the more opportunities you will find to engage others and begin relationships. Quality of followers is more important than quantity.
6. Be aware! Like anywhere else on the internet, there are bots, scammers and viruses roaming on Twitter. If you get an odd direct message from someone asking you to click on a link – don’t do it. Reply and ask them what it’s about or if it’s legitimate. Sometimes these messages even seemingly come from those you know well – but don’t be fooled. Chances are, that person’s account has been compromised by a hacker. Err on the side of caution.
7. Don’t say anything on Twitter that you wouldn’t say out loud to a room full of people. Self explanatory, no?
8. Re-tweet when you can. A re-tweet (or an RT) is forwarding of someone’s tweet to your followers. If you like something someone has said, or like an article they tweeted, you can re-tweet it. This is a sign of endorsement by you and complimentary to the person you re-tweeted. This is often seen as a sign of endorsement of that tweeter and their content. If you want people to notice you, re-tweet them. It’s the highest form of flatter on Twitter and will get people looking at your profile – and hopefully, following you!
9. @ or Direct Message? If it’s something you wouldn’t say to someone in front of other people, then save it for a Direct Message. If the person you want to send the direct message to isn’t following you though, you won’t be able to send it to them. In such case, you can send an @ reply to that person asking them to follow you so that you can DM. @ replies are public, Direct Messages are not.
10. “What do I talk about?” This is the most asked question and it’s something I cannot answer for you. For each person the answer to this is different. However, consider what you’re using Twitter for. For most, you will want to present a professional image, but Twitter is also the place to let your personal side show. People are interested in who you are, not just what you do. Sharing things about yourself, your profession, industry related articles, funny things, technology news, etc. Just remember that what you tweet about will determine who finds you/follows you!

Seems like a possibility does it not? Open a wave enter some details about the position, make it search friendly by adding the contact called [email protected]…See who finds it.
In the high tech fields I see this working extremely well. Candidates could be given a test, or asked to submit a resume. Makes a lot of sense. Wave corporate hiring communities, complete with a resume drop box and a method for a potential hire to leave a customized message viewable by management or HR.
Job Waves….Hey we are hiring see us over here waving!!!!
JobShouts.com has been working really hard to transition to next level and build something of true value to employers, recruiters and job seekers.
For employers and recruiters, our newest tool is now in beta testing and we need your help and feedback! We’ve put together a search tool we call Social Search, that allows you to search multiple social networks in one click. You can search for specific skill sets on social networks such as Twitter, FaceBook, MySpace, LinkedIn, VisualCV, Spoke, Jigsaw and more (we can release additional networks as they come online)
Check out Social Search, see what it can do help streamline your pipeline development. Do a search, search for PHP in Dallas, “Business Analyst” in Ontario, Cosmetologist in NYC – anything! From these results, you can click through to the social profiles to view them. Our “Shout Bar” will iframe the profile and allow you to “Star This” candidate for later evaluation. (the “star this” feature is not fully developed at this time, so while you can star candidates, you don’t have the ability to view them) That’s a feature reserved for premium employers.
We’d like to gauge interest in this tool to help us determine value, pricing, etc. For now, it’s free. 😀 Tell all your friends and let us know what you think! Comments, questions – all feedback is welcome!!
Face it: job searching right now is a bear for nearly everyone. It is harder for some than for others but by and large anyone looking for a new job is struggling to find one. We can analyze why; fewer jobs, employers are more selective, etc. Many job seekers turn to job boards and social networking as tools for their job search. There has been a lot of negative feedback from job seekers about the use of job boards and the lack of response from employers using these job boards. “Are they real jobs?” “Why don’t they respond?” “I feel like my resume goes into a black hole!”
By the same token, employers complain about the lack of quality applicants on job boards. Job seekers fail to follow application instructions or reply to positions for which they aren’t qualified. Employers become complacent about responses from job board applicants, likely thinking they aren’t going to find the candidate they want to hire in that stack.

Social Media is drawing masses of attention. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and 800 other social web 2.0/3.0 applications are all competing for market share. You might be asking yourself “how can I make use of these tools?” “How can they help me find a job?” That is a great question. One that deserves a great answer. Alison Boyle over at jobsearch.about.com addresses how to use twitter in your job search efforts. I wanted to expand on that post somewhat.
Twitter is a fast and simple way to digest a lot of information. Not only can you keep in touch with your contacts, it can help you get career advice, and quite possibly help in your job search. Statistics show that job search networking is much more effective when you make ‘loose’ connections – touching base with people beyond your immediate circle . Whose networks and contacts are considerably different from your own. With over 4 million users, Twitter offers a fantastic opportunity to create flexible extended networks.
