Last week, I spoke about Talent Communities and inevitably what I envision them to be. But let’s take a step back and talk about what many organizations have in place today: Talent Pools.
For those unfamiliar with Talent Pools. Talent Pools are a collection of recruiting contacts separated by specific disciplines & other…Continue
When I was growing up, there was not a holiday that I looked forward to more than Halloween. Not only did I love thinking up a great costume and getting free candy but I always really enjoyed the Halloween route planning sessions the night before.
Every Halloween I’d go to one of my friends places (as they had a better neighborhood) and we’d map out the houses and areas we would hit up during the night. After years of experience, we knew the houses that gave the “good”…Continue
One of the biggest trends in recruiting today is the development of Talent Networks. Here’s how I define a Talent Network (definitely feel to add your definition in the comments):
A Talent Network is a community of candidates that a recruiting organization builds organically through opt-in and sourcing and most importantly, engages with (via social media, email, SMS) to drive qualified candidates & hires into their recruiting…Continue

You receive a new job requisition. You post the job to numerous channels, sort through candidate resumes that come into your ATS, set up interviews and hopefully find a candidate that you hire. Rinse and repeat.
With new job requisitions coming up every day and some that drag on without finding the right candidate, it can be easy to lose yourself in the day to day and focus less on the big picture. It’s what I like to refer as “recruiting with blinders…Continue

I talk with a good number of recruiting organizations about their recruiting goals and on several occasions I’ve asked the question “what are your main goals for a recruiting campaign?”. The answer is almost always straightforward: “to make a quality hire.”
You can’t argue with that. If getting quality people into your organization is not a priority, then you have more problems in your organization than just recruiting. But when you are looking at the main…Continue

Every job distribution campaign you run is a great opportunity not only to make a hire but to build your Talent Network so you can make more hires (more quickly) in the future.
However, having a large Talent Network is not the goal unto itself. It’s having a Talent Network that you are able to leverage and utilize your Talent Network to hire future employees that…Continue

When employees move…Continue
