The publisher search project

We're at about 120 resumes in the search for Associate Publisher of The Design and Construction Report. See this Craigslist posting for more information.

People who answer the posting with their resume receive an "autoresponder" answer with links to an sales survey (test) and a questionnaire. I expected few would complete or answer the survey -- thinking their resume is all they need -- but have been impressed by the overall quality of the responses. Most people who have responded would make it through the initial "screen" in conventional recruiting approaches.

The big challenge will be to decide who should be finalists for a thorough evaluation, which costs significantly more to us than the $25.00 Craigslist postings, as we believe in paying fairly during the working trial period.

I describe the process here and update on our progress in daily postings at (the real and actively maintained blog).
