To Moderators - A Message

Hello,

We request you to mandate mentioning the name of the companies while posting jobs. Everyone says, the job openings are for CMM Level 5 companies. Most of us interested in knowing the name of the companies atleast while reading job positing.

Applying for a job without knowing the company doesn't make sense.

My gut feeling is to leave it up to the poster to decide. My rational is as follows:

Recruiters get paid when they fill a position. Many recruiters are trying to fill the same position at any given company, and the company may be trying to do direct hires themselves.

If someone were to post the company name, what's to keep a job-seeker from simply reading the company name and applying directly? This cuts out the recruiter who posted the job, costing him/her their comission.

that doesn't seem right to me.

what's wrong with contacting the originial poster and asking them who the company is? that kind of forces the applicant to have the relationship with the recruiter. if the applicant then applies directly, the recruiter has a case for getting their money - "bob applied for the job on the 17th, but emailed me on the 15th and asked for the name of the compnay I was trying to place".

If the OP wants to list the company, I don't see a problem with it. but i think that if we REQUIRE it, you'll see a lot less postings.

Yes it does. One reason is the one Fred mentioned. Another one is that some companies do not advertise their openings directly, but rather only through agencies, because they do not want to get inundated with resumes, and have to spend time screening them. That's what they pay the recruiter for, after all.

If the recruiter thinks that a candidate is suitable for the job, he'll say which company it is. And if the candidate is not suitable, what good does it do to know the name of the company? I'm talking from the recruiters/company perspective here. The mere curiosity of the candidate is irrelevant.

Myself wouldn't post anymore. The reason why is that I want to spare my company with tons of hopeless resumes.

Usually the person who is interested in a job will contact me as I demand her/him to do so. When I see that this person could be a match I'm going to give more information about the company and direct his resume to the right channel.
