If I did a search for "job ads that suck," a couple articles - including quite a few from our websites would pop up. It's a fact - most job ads are very poorly written. They're some of the worst content on the internet, and that's saying a…Continue

I read a post on RecruitingBlogs this morning that said you get the most views on a Facebook job ad. I'm calling BS in my first ever video blog post.
Yeah yeah, I know video…Continue

Job boards to me are the ideal and only place I would look for jobs. Why? Because it is so bloody simple. I register and set up some search terms so that…Continue
So I’m going to tell it to you straight. When it comes to investing time in a Facebook page, lately, I’m just plain against it. Well, that is unless you’re going to spend money on ads. Seriously. The social media budget is a reality.
I’m sorry if you’ve spent a ton of resources and energy building out an organic Facebook plan. News flash: the organic only days are gone. Organic reach is in the…Continue
While browsing Twitter recently I noticed an organisation that was offering an all in recruitment advertising service for less than £200 (about $335), so I got in touch. Not because I have any jobs to advertise, but because I was curious. Here's what they told me:
"We will write your advert ensuring it is…Continue

Flickr Recruits Coders With Ads Hidden in Its Website’s Source Code. Where else?

That’s why it’s surprising that so many are dense, boring and bland. It’s like everyone that writes a job posting forgets how our brains work when we’re looking for a job.…Continue
By Dan Ridge, Senior Contributing Consultant, Q4B
I would like to think that our recruiting and management team at Q4B started something. A few months ago we decided to target a part of our recruiting process in an effort to improve the end results of the process. We noticed that this part of the process is a part of every recruiting organization’s process and that for years and years and years we have all been doing it the same way, with pretty much the same results.
Conduct an online job search these days and you’re soon confronted with lots of ads, many suggesting, without actually saying it of course, that each day spent working with them will be just like dying and going to heaven, only better. But should they be taken at face value? Is your workplace heaven? Or is it more like hell, despite what that ever so enticing advertisement that lured you there in the first place suggested? Here I take a lighthearted look at what job ads say and what they…Continue

That was the basic premise of a talk I recently gave at the Minnesota Recruiters' Conference earlier this month. The presentation was titled, "Winning The Talent War With Effective Job Posts."
I thought I would share the main point of the talk...
Typical job posts do not affect a potential candidate's desire to apply.
Our job posts are all about our companies and what we want - they are totally focused on us. We need…Continue
During August, more than 6,000 new online job ads were posted for Recruiters. About 3,200 (52%) jobs were advertised by staffing firms and 2,800 were posted by employers (48%), both seeing about a 26% increase compared to the beginning of the year. This also represents a 31% year-over-year growth in hiring demand.

Putting the Recruitment Innovation Summit in Perspective
I attended the Recruiting Innovation Summit hosted by ERE, LinkedIn, and Facebook's Richard Cho a few weeks ago. The people, tone, and content of the event made it great. It was well attended, and Richard Cho of Facebook is the man. Attendees had an edge about them, giving you a sense that there is real momentum in the recruiting…Continue

First, I would like to congratulate the employees and executives at LinkedIn. What a tremendous day for your company.
