37 Current Key Challenges Faster turn-around delivery required Emergence of new sources of candidates: Face book Monster, Jobsdb, Jobstreet Linked-in, Zing, Plaxo [But also new sources of candidates for us.]

38 Steps Taken Pursue companies/industries hiring Faster turn-around on both pursuing green- shoots and delivery of candidates Competitive pricing and terms – to a limit (Depends on how eager we are to work for the company; still avoid C companies) Extensive upgrading of database systems Web-accessible by candidates Web-accessible by clients – to come soon Timely delivery of quality candidates
