Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - Job Search 2.0

« The Proof is in the Pudding | Main | Learning from Customers »


What you say is also true here. Finding a job is a process, sometimes a painful one if nobody knows you and your work. LinkedIn is a tool and it won't replace a system or process.

The reality of employment laws and regulations is very different in Europe, I know. Because employment is not at will there, companies started offering only temporary work with little or no benefits to get around the pesky issue of layoffs and compensation scales.

What intrigues me about Harry's inquiry is the possibilities of moving to a whole new model for those who seek employment. The economy has globalized, the world has flattened, virtual teams, and open source projects have become less of a novelty. Who knows? You may be able to work here from Rome one day soon.

thruth is, valeria, that find a job in italy is a real painful process. if i was in the states, i have already find a job through linkedin. but it is definitely a powerful networking tool.
