3 reasons why online direct recruitment will soon be all there is
The Staffing Stream
If the last 10 years have taught us anything, it's that well-established bricks and mortar businesses are destined to lose the battle with online services that allow customers more direct access to the goods and services they want to buy. In the recruitment business, we all know direct sourcing is coming. Its rise is inevitable in a world where just about everyone's career profile is available on Linkedin. So why does most recruitment industry comments imply that the future involves more recruitment agents, more managed service providers and more vendor management systems?

Survey finds 1 in 5 companies has replaced workers with technology
CareerBuilder
Is automation a job killer or creator? Both, according to new research from CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. In a nationwide survey, one in five companies (21 percent) reported they have deskilled workers, i.e., replaced employees with automation. Among companies with more than 500 employees, the number is 30 percent. While eliminating jobs, the vast majority (68 percent) of companies who have replaced workers with automation said their adoption of new technology resulted in new positions being added in their firms. Thirty-five percent of companies that deskilled workers said they ended up creating more jobs in their firms than they had prior to the automation.

Economy gains 209,000 jobs; jobless rate, 6.2 percent
USA Today
The unemployment rate rose to 6.2 percent from 6.1 percent, the Labor Department said Friday, as 329,000 Americans, including many who had given up their job searches, surged back into the labor force. Economists had estimated that 238,000 jobs were created last month, according to the median forecast from Action Economics survey. Although July's gains fell short of estimates and average monthly job growth of nearly 230,000 so far this year, it marked the sixth straight month of 200,000-plus employment increases — the longest such stretch since 1997. Businesses added 198,000 jobs, led by professional and business services, manufacturing, retail and construction. Federal, state and local governments added 11,000.
