Petulant commentariat alive and well.
In case you missed the flurry of postings and articles about Jobster's alleged troubles, Marty The Beadle Snyder has collected them here.
There's also this one which quotes the Animal. And, this one which has the greatest comments beneath it. All kind of potshots are taken at Don JGo but Ami G is at hand to come to his defence.
Attacks Are Good
Now, according to business blog theory (a la Charlene Li), these attacks are gold -- because they reveal the full range of public perceptions about the company and its people. The problem is, however, that there is no demographic analysis attached to the complaints. We don't know how many people each vein of criticism (or support) represents.
One thing is certain, though: these three comments, which appear at the top of the list, certainly do work in Don JGo's favour by giving you the impression that anyone who criticizes Jobster is either drunk or insane. (No, I didn't write them).
About time Goldberg got fired. I met him at a queen anne bar, the guy is so full of himself. Looked like someone with all show and no substance. When does he find time to run the company?
Goldberg is the one who needs fired. The guy is a fool. If he worried less about his Prada shoes and more about his business Jobster might have had a chance. [#19859]
I saw him at Neighbors & he didn't even look twice at me...So arragant! [#19865]
Here are some other good ones:
I went over and read his blog for the first time and was stunned that this individual is running anything other than an ice cream truck. He truly does come off as a petulant boor who, in his rather inane desire to seem hip and open, actually does himself and (most importantly) his VC handlers an incredible disservice. [#20057]
Recruiting.com like jobster is all about hype where in a bunch of 10+ odd headhunters (most of them non corporate) are blogging day and night. I am not sure when they working? [#20152]
Kind of reminds you of this:
All recruiting blogs are worthless and designed by people for people who have nothing really to say; but they like to see their words in print. I've yet to find a recruiting blog that had content worth reading. The silly names by people who think they know everything about recruiting is embarrasing to the profession. [Shawn W]
The Tipping Point
It seems to me that Jobster is to recuiter blogging what the 2004 presidential elections were to the political blogs. No one paid attention before the elections but everyone has known of them since. And two songs come to mind:
In the midnight hour, she cries more, more, more! [Billy Idol]
More, more, more. How do you like it, how do you like it
I like it! (And, did you notice? Don JGo's code name is finally catching on).
