Here are some basic primers on each job and how to manage them when you're wearing more than one hat in the hiring department.

2013 is a very special year for LinkedIn…the company started the new year off by breaking the 200-million member mark.
Now while that’s great news for the company and its shareholders, as well as many of its business-owner members, it can mean a bit of a challenge for you as a job seeker.
The good news is that as a member of LinkedIn, you have a HUGE audience.
The bad news is, you also face a TON of competition.
So how do you tap into the vast…Continue

The traditional recruiting approach is to hire a third party recruiting firm or individual recruiter who writes boring job descriptions, throws “hail mary” listings on job boards and works their network.
There is nothing wrong with this, but if you want younger, tech-savvy employees, I believe you need to go to Facebook: home of 1 billion people!
Here are 5 companies that are leveraging their Social Recruiting efforts by doing a good job with their Facebook Careers pages. All…Continue

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well.

If people are a company's key to gaining competitive advantage, then this is the area where an employer brand strategy should be looking to generate the most traction.
To place the sole responsibility for your employer brand strategy with one department, be that HR or Marketing makes no sense at all. This is a shared responsibility and so needs a shared involvement. How many CFO's or COO do you know that have involvement in their company's employer brand strategy? Then ask why it is…Continue
