I’m pretty relaxed about rules in general, and my biggest role as Managing Editor within the Recruiting Blogs community is mostly to referee when the trolls come out from under the bridge (or away from their contingency firm bullpens). The coolest thing about this site is it’s actually pretty self-sustaining and organic. But sometimes, the deus ex machina factor kicks in and I've got to intervene.
Since I'm kind of sick of answering questions about why certain…Continue
I apologise in advance for the somewhat generic greeting, but it’s been ingrained in me from way back when I first got into recruitment.
I still remember all the role-plays and all the training manuals. Every scenario seemed to involve an interaction with “Mr…Continue

… And you didn’t have much time to begin with. We’ve broken it down for you in this infographic: there are 24 hours in a day, doctors recommend we get 8 hours of sleep per night and the typical workday is 8 hours. That leaves 8 hours of free time. Unfortunately for most of the working population, we spend more than the 8 hours at work, get less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep and feel like 24 hours just isn’t enough. For corporate professionals, there are numerous…Continue

Jerry Berg decided that the best way to deal with a layoff was to make a 20 minute video ( http://bit.ly/1oouacX ) lamenting how terrible it is to be laid off after 15 years at Microsoft. I personally feel for him as I’ve been laid off twice since the 2008 financial crisis. While his emotions are understandable, putting them out there in a public video was a bad choice.
I recently shared data on gender diversity in STEM (science, tech, engineering, and mathematics) jobs. This time, I'm examining ethnic diversity for these fields. How ethnically diverse is US's STEM candidate supply? Below are the percentages of qualified people in the US workforce for each STEM field, broken down by ethnicity.

Collaborative recruiting has a deeper impact than just your typical, run-of-the-mill programs. This is because it involves more than just the Human Resources and recruiting departments.
