Week in Review

I am not a recruiter but I work in recruiting. Is that weird? Nah. I used to work at a company that manufactured passive components but am I an engineer? Nah. We all have something we specialize in, even if we aren’t specialists. So I thought it would be interesting to give some perspective on things that I, personally, know nothing about.

TLDR: SEO doesn’t drive applicants in a significant way, even for Fortune 500 companies who have invested in SEO, because it’s impossible to beat job boards for the vast majority of queries.
