Let's assume you have spent your money wisely and purchased a content management platform (like ours - sorry it needed to be said) that is technically compatible with the needs of Google and its peers in terms of page indexing. Then the next thing you must get right is the linguistics you add to the site, that matches the linguistic styles of your ideal visitors. You will have determined who these…Continue

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

In the current age, when we don’t know the answer to a question, we tend to turn to our good friend Google for the answer. In 2011 alone, Google performed a total of 1,722,071,000,000 searches – that’s an average of 4,717,000,000 searches per day! Needless to say, Google will be there to provide you with an answer to your question, but none of those 1,722,071,000,000 queries will tell you which candidate is the best fit for YOUR company. In fact, it might even provide an answer that is…Continue
You may not know it yet, but the people entering your stores, purchasing your products, and returning time and time again, may be the perfect candidates for your jobs. These people are your customers, and many retailers sometimes forget that their customers can be a valuable recruiting source. In fact, they may even be your best candidates because they are users of your products and services, which means they can best represent them to other customers, like themselves.
Here are 3…

Since 1981, I have worked with over 3000 hiring managers across the United States. Most of whom have never been trained how to interview. If they haven’t been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select the best fit. Therefore, they bring their own unique interview techniques and questions to the interview party. Of course, the candidates bring their own special treats to the interviewing party; and I will share some of those also.
If you have been around the HR & Recruiting blogosphere long enough (or been to enough conference booths) you’ve probably heard about Talent Networks or Talent Communities.

And while both aim to achieve this same…Continue

A disappointing or disappointed placement?
It is 2012 and the economy has not completely recovered—particularly in the legal sector. As a legal recruiter, I’m in the tough position of placing a select few candidates from a highly-saturated, highly-qualified pool of available attorneys. There are more attorneys available than there are available seats on projects. Law firms remain cautious about hiring; many attorneys continue to experience layoffs; and, new attorneys…Continue
