(John Read @WhatCareer Next!)3.Dot.com jobs: looking for senior HR people to help them recruit, Senior level positions, marketing. The companies that are doing the hiring,already had their money prior to the drying up of funding from Wall Street.Individuals who are taking advantage of the high-level positions at thesecompanies know that if they can hold a high level chair, they have totallyenhanced their marketabilitiy.4.Will the web change the outplacement industry? We have found that thetime spent on research, correspondence and surfing for target company infoand job leads is decreasing for us (as the executive is more prepared - jobsearch wise than ever before), yet our attendance is up and we feel thatthe clients continue to come into our office for affiliation, human contactwith peers that technology does not provide, comfort of replacementworkplace, a reduced sense of isolation, some accountability, energy,coaching, high-touch aspect.5.Differences we see in the corporate client: HOTELING concept: whereemployer pays for office space when it is needed. Contrast withdry-cleaning services, concierge stuff, etc6.Severance packaging: more lump sum: less work, cleaner, allows everyoneto focus, harder to determine when re-employment actually takes place, lessextended stay, more bonus related stuff: incentive-based stuff, (as partof severance - more employees are fighting for them and getting them).

Results-oriented,transferable skills, related work experience, must be shown.Responsibility element is important of Sr MgmtIn North America and Canada 95% of jobs through networking in IT.The FIT of the person to the team is more important than the age of thecandidate. - check culture.
RANDY BLOCK. 28 Years as a Recruiter specialises inplacement of high-tech professionals, managers &executives, tells applicants this:
I expect them to have gone through the company's web-site and know it cold,I DO.Differentiation is vital…Positions over middle mgmt really need a lot of chemistry- personality – uniqueness to enable FIT to be determined really matters.Found summaries on resumes sound pretty similar, recently,100 different companies said that when hiring a HR MGR. So make sure you putyourself forward and avoid generics without customisation.Lots more but I will close with this one…
