At Wowzer, since we love video, we love Vine. Vine does for video what Twitter did for blogging: helps people share glimpses of their lives in a minimalist format so that it's fast to create and fast to watch. But is Vine good for presenting yourself to prospective employers?

In a world where seemingly everyone has gotten involved in Social Media (still hate that term), is it odd when you run across someone who is not? I am not talking about someone in their 80s, but someone in today’s work-a-day world. Certainly there are many people who do not feel they have time, or who may feel that their personal involvement in social or professional networks adds little value to either their professional standing or their company’s performance. But isn't this a dying breed?…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

How do you communicate with your candidates? Do you know where they first heard of you, what spurred them to apply for the role or what their first impression was? In the vast communications landscape a candidate’s first sighting could have come from an array of sources. They, themselves, probably couldn’t tell you where their first influencer came from. Because of this companies must ensure they’re on top of their…Continue

Due to a global skills shortage, 65% of organisations have experienced problems resourcing in the past year.

“I am the greatest; I said that even before I knew I was.” These are the words of arguably the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali. He gave everything to be the best at what he did.
With Gold, Silver and Bronze up for grabs in London, is it ok to strive for less than the best? In my opinion it’s not. That’s the opinion of someone who is not a world class athlete that has not earned the right to be part of the greatest show on earth. I absolutely respect each competitor who…Continue

As my recruitment career continues and the list of candidates I deal with increases, it becomes very apparent that there is a small minority that truly stand out above the rest, the elite.

However, recruiters are embracing new technology in the social media arena to gain the best candidates for open positions. No matter the objection, companies need to ensure that they are still able to get good candidates identified through social media.
