APRIL '06 Edition - Big Issues for Buyers
We continue our Walking with Clients' series but instead of talking to one client we've surveyed two dozen, to find out how the Internet is influencing their approach to research, and what are the other problems and challenges high in their minds at present. This issue we introduce the themes, and a more detailed analysis will follow in the next.
In our skills section we ask recruitment consultants to daydream a little and describe for us the ideal CV and covering letter they'd like to find in their Inbox on a Monday morning. Are any of them you? In 'Love 'n' Hate' two business developers compete for our attention - one does a nice job of selling the profession, and the other one pitches it into the bin. We also compare numbers of jobs and salary stats for UK regions (London, rest of SE and rest of the UK).
As ever, there is senior level personnel news and vacancies plus two pages of international jobs.
MRWho has about 900 subscribers including a majority of the bosses of major UK agencies and around 320 blue chip clientside researchers. It's free and comes in a .pdf format so most people print it out, although you can read it on-screen if you prefer. The November edition has appeared online first due to delays with creating the pdf, which will be published around the end of the month and will be available for download from this site (see bottom right) - you'll need a password and for this you'll need to subscribe. If you'd like to, just email us and say so, giving us your email address (and those of anyone else there who wants it), your JobTitle(s) and the name of your company - this will only be used for our own stats, ie so we can give advertisers general information about the types of people reading it - and for our own analysis / edification. Re confidentiality of this: we are MRS members and you know the drill! Please state clearly whether you just want passwords to download previous editions or if [like 90% plus] you wish to receive forthcoming issues too.
If you're not in an HR function and you think your company's personnel or training people would be interested, please let them know - there is no limit to the number of subscribers per company, of course.
