Are You Using a Gold-Medal ATS?

Read the latest post from Elise Jennings!

The Olympic Games are underway! Just six days ago we watched 10,000+ athletes walk out during the opening ceremony waving and smiling at over 4 million international spectators.

TOMS Shoes and Your Business

TOMS shoes are a feel good purchase.

Buy a pair today, give a pair to someone in need tomorrow. It’s a great cause.

But TOMS has been criticized for ignoring the root of a much bigger problem. The argument is, sure it’s great to provide a kid in a third world country a new pair of shoes. But, they’re still poor.…

The Resume: Is it alive, dead or just another data point?

With the rise of social recruiting, online profiles and alternative resume solutions, the resume has long been resumed dead by many.  However, while the concept makes some sense, much of the recruiting technology out today is still tied to the resume as the main source of information needed from candidates in the apply process.  This was OK 5 years ago but with the wealth of information available online, there are a number of tremendous data points available to recruiters to make good…

Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs and Recruiting

Abraham Maslow developed his hierarchy of needs by studying successful people.  How does your company’s recruiting process match up with our human needs?
