Martha Lane Fox, who delivered this year’s Dimbleby Lecture on the theme of “Dot Everyone,” is the co-founder of lastminute.com, a website that spawned many just like it. Created in 1998, it was an unreserved success for her and co-founder Brent Hoberman, as it was sold in 2003… Continue

Larry Page and Sergey Brin were both high-achieving students, as both earned master’s degrees from Stanford before they co-founded Google.

Google Glass's revolutionary technology has created a lot of buzz from supporters and opponents of the device. "Explorers," a term used for Glass users, tout its convenience, while opponents highlight its invasion of privacy and its impracticality. No matter what side of the fence your opinions are on,… Continue

Two very interesting and relevant US court cases were settled in the past three weeks involving anti-competitive behavior, namely no-headhunting agreements between large and high profile publicly listed companies.

I've talked with a lot of people lately who are keen to improve their ranking on the search engines, and in particular Google.

Very recently Google announced their acquisition of Nest Labs, the maker of high-tech thermostats and smoke detectors, for $3.2 billion. You may be thinking, “So what, Google bought some thermostats?” Well it’s actually a pretty big deal; to be exact, it is the second largest deal in Google’s history.
eMarketer reports that the … Continue

I was watching the movie The Internship (don't ask), and my big takeaway, even with my fancy degree in film, was this: how the hell did Google get a feature film for an employer branding initiative? I mean, it's not enough that they're already the… Continue

Earlier this week I stumbled across a basic Boolean search string generator from a London based company called Clever Biscuit.

The post has everything you need to use the tool for recruiting. It's so easy to use, you don't even have… Continue

In research for a webinar I ran last week Google Plus for Recruiters, I found that there are not too many useful tools to help recruiters source candidates on Google Plus. The big problem with the search within Google Plus is that there is no good way to limit your search to a specific geographic area. It would appear that the most effective way is not to use the search in Google Plus but use a Google X-Ray search. Glen… Continue

Ongig believes that one day all job pages will have live interactivity such as a comments/chat feature.
First off, it’s a great experience for the candidate — they get their questions answered (questions that often aren’t answered in a standard job posting).
But it’s great for internal recruiters too — especially for search engine optimization (SEO). Hundreds of candidates Google you and your team and jobs and the more content/text there is on your…

Over the past few years the job market has become increasingly competitive, making it not only hard for job-seekers to stand out from the crowd and land their dream job but also making it challenging for employers to spot the best candidates and convince them to come on board. The war for top talent is back on and companies have had to use all available resources to reach… Continue

Tuesday after a long weekend, and I hope today, all is well. One of the more interesting things about long weekends (besides the copious amounts of food!) is that it allows most of us to hit the cosmic "reset" button and re-focus the way we approach work. Simply having a couple of extra days to mentally work through your problems, especially now that we are moving into the Christmas period, allows for a re-dedication of both mind and body to… Continue
