"I have a score of 48 last time I checked....my biggest issue is that I can usually not log in...they have some systems issues.  It is more of a running joke when I get some good clicks on my blog or linked in stuff.."this will raise my…"

Natalie Prigge commented on Michael Wright's blog post 'Facebook check pre-hire? Never. Here's why -'
"Michael, thank you for the post.  I agree that using FB to “qualify” a candidate is a stretch.  There should be some separation between work and life.  Now, with that being said, we absolutely use LinkedIn to recruit and…"

Fred Elmore commented on Michael Wright's blog post 'Facebook check pre-hire? Never. Here's why -'
" Michael, I agree with your points.  As a hiring manager, when I pay a recruiter to prescreen candidates for an open position, I don’t expect part of that prescreening process to be checking out their Facebook page.  It seems a…"

Will my Klout score get me a dream job in Digital Media?

Has an interviewer, or job advertisement, ever asked you for your Klout score?  In time, maybe they will.  Although Klout has a it's share of skeptics, and even angry types who seem hell bent on sending Klout to meet it's maker - the company continues to gain ground and credence beyond it's rudimentary measurement of Twitter and Facebook followers.…See More

Why Courtesy Interviews are always worth the time

Talent Acquisition is a lot like courtship/dating. In Corporate Talent Acquisition - you have to be a grade-A slut, totally promiscuous, and with rocket-powered libido. That means never settling down with anyone permanently, constantly sourcing new prospects to date and get to know, and cutting pre-nuptial arrangements on a weekly, or even…See More

Harlem Shake is not an employer branding strategy

Probably the only thing that happened to me in February that can not be unseen would be the Harlem Shake. But there was a valuable out-take for recruiting too, from this joyful mass-adopted boogie. We all know what the Harlem Shake is by now and I won't waste your valuable time getting into the origins of the dance, the numbers of harlem shakes uploaded, or what the haters said…See More

8 Ways to optimize your online reputation

If your name is Michael Jackson, Leonard Nimoy, Lindsey Lohan or Mark Twain, you might as well skip this article. It doesn't apply to you.  It may seem rather ironic to some people that I'm talking here about online reputation. Last week I totally trashed the idea that the majority of HR pro's are sniffing around in your Facebook profile, - in order to get a glimpse of you in some awkward moment, making a politically inclined or insulting status update, or perhaps just seeking a swimsuit shot…See More
