Your article is right on the money. We've been discussing this same subject for the past several weeks at my company.

Although we're addressing all five points you make, we're especially keying in on #'s 3 & 4 above -- trying to get the 'buy in' from our hiring managers. If you have any other thoughts on how to get their commitment, please let us know!

The article is exactly true. As a recent college grad I've was recruited by more than one company for awhile. It was the company that offered me the best job possible that I accepted. I turned down another job unfortunately but even in the recession, it didn't take long for me to the find a way to get a job offer.

The horizon is coming and the sun is hot. Soon everyone will be scampering in to their office building and recruiters won't be able to simply walk into the street and run into someone looking for a job.

Very pointe post.

First you have to know where the jobs are before you mount a strategy to go after them. Most executive job seekers look to executive recruiters and job boards for open positions. The problem with this is recruiters get 15% of all executive searches and fill half of them, and only 1% of anybody ever gets a job from a job board.
