Raise Your Hand If You Use Crowdsourcing for Recruiting [Blog]

Ah, crowdsourcing. What exactly is it? A nice simple description is this one: a company posts a problem online (looking for candidate who possesses X skills), a vast number of individuals offer their opinions and ideas as to how to solve it (I know someone who fits the bill!), the winning idea is rewarded in some form (money, bonus, product?), the end result is the company adopting the idea for its own benefit (you’re hired!).  So who is using it for recruiting? Companies like Accenture, Burger King, Hershey, Intel, Mattel, Microsoft, UPS, and even the US Department of State.
