PCRecruiter partners with Scout to increase recruiter job orders

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News, Partnerships

ScoutMain Sequence is pleased to announce a new partnership and integration between PCRecruiter and Scout Exchange, a recruitment marketplace that connects employers with specialized recruiters, delivering search opportunities to match individual recruitment expertise and results.

PCRecruiter users have free*, direct access to Scout’s application and service which scans the placement history in your database (scrubbed of identifiable personal information) and applies proprietary analytics to recommend job orders suited to your expertise. You'll see improvements in productivity and time-to-fill, gaining access to hundreds of new clients and more job-orders.

We're excited to lower the market development barriers for PCRecruiter users by immediately making them approved vendors for Scout's network of employers.

Naturally, Scout automates and manages the billing, logistics, and financial transactions to allow recruiters to focus on placing talent with low overhead and credit risk.

To get started with Scout, PCRecruiter users may send an email to goscout@mainsequence.net with their name, company name, and contact information. A Main Sequence representative will respond to initiate the setup.

* Scout is completely free to end-users. Main Sequence will participate in a revenue share with Scout based on placements made.

Using Resume Inhaler with Outlook 2010 and IMAP

Written by Andrew Rothman on . Posted in News

Source emails may be inadvertently being deleted by your email provider without your knowledge.

A recently discovered interaction combines Outlook 2010 with Gmail IMAP (and possibly other IMAP providers) such that Outlook is moving emails to the deleted items folder rather than the designated subfolder configured in the Inhaler. This result will in turn will synchronize to Gmail, which will then purge the item after 30 days. This mal-response to a move command from PCRecruiter does not occur in Outlook 2007 or Outlook 2013 nor all Outlook 2010 environments using IMAP.

To see if you are subject to this please a) observe that the Inhaler is moving items to the proper subfolders and/or b) check your deleted items folder in Outlook and your deleted items folder in Gmail to ensure that wanted resume emails have not been moved to those locations.

While we have no expectation that Microsoft will make any changes to Outlook 2010, there is a workaround if you find that you are subject to this issue.

To apply this workaround, open Outlook 2010 and follow these instructions:

  1. Click on the FILE tab in the upper left hand corner.
  2. Click on the Account Settings button.
  3. Find the IMAP folders entry and double click it. The following screen should appear:
    inhaler1
  4. From here, click the More Settings button in the lower right corner. The following screen will then appear:
    inhaler2
  5. Click on the Deleted Items tab, then click Mark items for deletion but do not move them automatically.
  6. Click OK/Next until all the account settings have been closed.
