Antisocial Networking: Getting Beyond Denial to Deliver a “Wow!” Experience
Don Ramer’s commitment to recruitment spans over 30 years. He began his career in executive search in 1974. Over the next 6 years he worked in both contingency and retainer environments serving as Assistant to the President at two AESC registered firms.
In 1980 he formed The Ramer Group, a recruiting firm specializing in the placement of Data Security executives for major financial institutions in New York City. In 1986 he launched The Recruitment Research Institute and served as Executive Director. Under the auspices of the Institute he began publication of a newsletter for the Human Resources community entitled The Alternative Employment Marketplace and delivered seminars throughout the US on “Improving Quality and Reducing Costs Through the Alternative Employment Marketplace.” Much of the Institute’s research was subsequently published and distributed by The Bureau of National Affairs.
In 1988 Don launched the Employment Management Group a high-level management consultancy focused on change management in recruitment and selection for very large employers. In addition to intensive review of recruitment and selection effectiveness, the EMG team planned, directed, organized and controlled recruitment and selection strategy, tactics, and operations on behalf of clients in the telecommunications and enterprise software industries.
In August of 1993, Don began working with the America Online Career Center to accelerate sales of their Online Recruitment Advertising products. Driven by his vision of the relationship between proactive recruiting and the up-and-coming universe of online job boards, Don created the concept of a central marketplace that would streamline HR professionals’ connection to many vendors. In 1996 he and his partners launched RecruitUSA, Inc. and have since helped define web recruiting for many of the world’s premier employers through partnerships and knowledge management. www.arbita.net
