MTV Networks received a little love back in October 2009, from Fox News in an article labled “Job Hunting with Social Networks“.  We’ve seen a lot of traction from our Twitter account @MTVNetworksJobs, and our followers continue to grow, almost 19,000 !
We keep those we follow to a minimum since we’re an HR account, and [...]

Catching up to Ping.fm

December 21st, 2009 by Livingston 0

Ping.fm was ahead of the game for status management across multiple portals and communities.  The challenge was getting a feed to ping, but this could be done fairly easily with Twitterfeed.

WordPress White Screen of Death or just a ‘WSOD’

November 24th, 2009 by Livingston 0

Phew, well after months of not looking at this site, I realized that there had not been a ‘this site’.  Serves me right for not paying attention to it.  Who knows how long the digitalsourcer page has been down, even the /wp-admin login page was a WSOD.  Thank you to Mr. Hightechdad – for his [...]

Twitter Search Operators

December 1st, 2008 by Livingston 0

By now you’ve probably heard of Twitter and may even be addicted to tweeting.  I’ve been casually using it and following some friends and industry folks, but have not yet successfully used it as a sourcing tool, and am itching to do so.
There are some posts and even resources that explain the Boolean logic and [...]

LinkedIn Corporate (Sourcing) Solution

November 25th, 2008 by Livingston 0

I’ve been tinkering with LinkedIn’s corporate solution for the past 6-7 months and can easily say that the ability to search the (entire) rapidly growing LI population warrants the purchase of a single seat.  The free account only lets members search and view up to 3 degrees of the LI population, and growing one’s network [...]
