I admit that I am a fanatic of cool tools. I become extremely excited to test new Do-It-Yourself Tools, electronic gadgets, websites or software. (The Gallup Organization says that is the “Learner” in me but I will talk about that another day). Today, I want to share a cool recruitment tool to put into your Green River Tool Belt called Higher Education Recruitment Consortium or HERC. Like any new tool, let’s put HERC to the test!
What is HERC?
I like know a little information about the company that creates the tool I am testing. HERC is a non-profit consortium of over 600 colleges, universities, hospitals, research labs, government agencies, and related non-and-for profit organizations. Consortium members share a commitment to hiring the most diverse and talented faculty, staff, and executives. That is awesome! Additionally, it is a gateway to more jobs in higher education and related filed than any other site!
Cool Features You Can’t Find Easily!
HERC features a Dual-Career Search tool that permits job seekers to enter in search job search criteria for themselves and for their partner/friend. They can drill down their search to keywords, job type, discipline, and organizational type. The really neat distinctive characteristic is the built in ability to identify specifically how far the jobs that meet both search criteria can be from each other! Now that is cool!
Next week, I will talk about HERC’s job alerts, diversity resources, and webinars!
