TheLadders says “Find $100k + Jobs at TheLadders”. They advertise less fluff, more six-figure jobs. For the job seeker, not wanting to wade through the a bazillion telemarketing positions when they really want a Brand Director role, this is a find. Pick your “Ladder” (for example, there’s a MarketingLadder) and search for relevant positions in one place. They hand-screen the jobs (no I am not kidding) and make sure you can find them.
Why am I telling you this? We just did a deal with TheLadders to have all of our $100k + potential jobs in marketing and finance (through Director level) posted there (and don’t be surprised if you see similar agreements with Microsoft recruiting groups outside of marketing and finance). Just another option for you to stay current on what we are hiring for and navigate the postings with ease. Part of their service is free, part involves a fee. Kind of turns the whole jobs site thing on it’s side.
From a recruiting perspective, the quality of resumes I have received is high. As a candidate, being in the company of other high-quality candidates is a competitive advantage (attracts recruiter eyeballs). This is where the business model comes in. Here’s a recent Business2.0 article on them if you want to understand how it works. Also, Marc Cenedella, their chief guy, has a blog here you might want to check out.
Disclaimer: I have to admit that I am nervous even putting the words “$100K potential” in here, but I wanted to be clear that that is the space that TheLadders specializes in and we selected jobs with that potential. All offers are contingent upon candidate qualifications, though.
