Earlier this week I stumbled across a basic Boolean search string generator from a London based company called Clever Biscuit.
I wrote an AvidCareerist post about it, directed to the job seeker audience, here: Find the Hiring Manager with This Free, New Tool.
The post has everything you need to use the tool for recruiting. It's so easy to use, you don't even have…Continue
Earlier today, we covered the launch of LinkedIn Talent Updates, a content sharing service which allows LinkedIn Recruiter customers the ability to post content outside of just sharing jobs directly from the LinkedIn Recruiter…Continue

Rich Peterson stated, Using, “non-traditional recruiting media,” is also a chance for you to convey something about your corporate culture and job opportunities to jobseekers.
1.) Signatures: Ask all of your employees, companywide, to put a footer in their e-mails reminding people that their, “company is hiring.” A signature can say "Note: we're hiring Star Developers, Energized Sales Managers and Effective Digital…Continue
Employees are the cogs that keep company gears moving forward. It’s understandable that any business would want to keep those cogs well-oiled and optimized. Problems that an employee may encounter are also the company’s problems. That being said, employees are still people, and they have free will. Trying to control and manipulate them will end badly.
That point also holds true when it comes to social profiles such as LinkedIn. Companies are already attempting to dictate the content…Continue
After attending a number of Recruiting and HR conferences this fall, I have noticed a few common themes. In particular, in both Europe and the U.S. the major focus has been on 1) “Big Data”; and 2) recruiters as marketing and sales people.These ideas are widely accepted –…Continue
On Wednesday, the big news at Talent Connect was that LinkedIn had gone mobile. But mobile access wasn't the only upgrade that LinkedIn's Recruiter product received, although this one received very little fanfare: recruiters who occupy a LinkedIn Recruiter seat can now post status updates directly onto…Continue
I am beta-testing a tool called Star Finder (http://www.starfinderplugin.com/) - a Chrome Plugin that scores every LinkedIn Profile you open in your Chrome browser.

We have been hearing for awhile now that mobile is where it's at, and today? LinkedIn announced they agree. A big part of the product announcements are focused on their mobile users. Makes sense, since somewhere between 70-80% of job seekers report using mobile to find their next career move & 30% of…

I have been using LinkedIn since the beginning and have had a LinkedIn Recruiter account for the last few years. I was doing a audit of my current account usage, as well as trying different formats to increase responses. With a current accept rate of 15%, I should be happy with the results, right? I look back to comments by Lou Adler about how to get a much higher response rate. I use templates and personalized messages. I try both direct and indirect recruiting.
In doing a deep…Continue

The LinkedIn Signal is gone. (Not too many recruiters used it for searching in the first place, but it was able to show profile updates across the whole network.) Alas, there's not much that can replace Signal!
There are also some limits affecting 3rd party vendors on providing any…Continue
