Optimizing Blog Posts: 11 Essential Considerations

Optimizing blog posts requires a fair bit of both art and science. Over the past four+ years, and particularly after working in the WordPress.org platform since the spring of 2013, I've learned a lot both about what TO do and what NOT to do. I've also learned a great deal from regularly curating content created by others.

I recently published the third edition of …

What You Need To Know About Image Copyright Laws

Using an image from a Google search is harmless… until $70,000 (or more) is awarded against you in statutory damages. That could be on the low end. Potential damages like that spark a lot of questions in a marketer’s minds. Am I breaking the law? How do permissions really work on…

Why social media is a powerful tool for job seekers?

After The Shore Groups created its first ever infographic last week, we thought it would be a good idea to take on another spin on job seekers using social media.

Networking sites like LinkedIn can be such a powerful tool for job seekers, if used correctly. The ability to create relationships with recruiters, add CEO’s of businesses, and apply for jobs via the website with a few simple clicks. LinkedIn has grown massively…

Here's something I'd like to know

Why would anyone want to post a blog here at recruitingblogs and then censor any comments it might attract?

Wouldn't that change this site from one where people engage, to one where people just broadcast?

The author of this blog has chosen to delete comments.

I doubt there is a better way of illustrating that the argument presented in your…

Refried Beans and Recruiting Blogs

As a Southern California native, consuming (and/or cooking) mass quantities of Mexican cuisine is a way of life. One of the more delectable ingredients in many tasty recipes is refried beans. Ironically, the way these beans are made involves…

Some Things are Worth Repeating

A coworker of mine absolutely detests the phrase, "Recruiting is a lot like dating." She says it's cliche and trite; and she is right. The problem, though, with cliches and all things trite, is that they are true. 

Why is bears repeating that Recruiting is a lot like Dating:

  1. There is the obvious "courting" that occurs in both dating and recruiting, with recruiters often serving the role of "Match Maker" between candidates and companies
  2. Dating and…

Responsibility- Or is it Response Ability #sourcing, #conduct, #socialinteraction, #thedanieljsmith

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…

Everyone on the Planet Should Have a Blog

That is an outrageous and absurd idea, right?

Yet, countless career related experts continue to suggest that to job seekers. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve read and heard that exact piece of advice, but it is a prevalent theme amongst the rapidly reproducing “build your brand” and “brand yourself as an expert” contingent.

They may not be saying it quite like the title above, but essentially when they advise anyone who is looking for a job to start a blog, that IS what…

Now Pay Attention—>Content is King !!

“You can buy attention (advertising). You can beg for attention from the media (PR). You can bug people one at a time to get attention (sales). Or you can earn attention by creating something interesting and valuable and then publishing it online for free.” –David Meerman Scott, Best-Selling Author & Speaker

Content is cool. What is even more cool than that, is content that doesn’t seem repetitious or dated. Staying current with trends in both worlds (Social Media and…

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

I would wager that it wasn’t a recruiter.  This was a question I used to jokingly ask my potential candidates to break the ice, get them relaxed and open up.  Usually they would say something like “I’ll let you know when I decide to grow up” or “retired” or simply “employed”.   Funny, they all seem to hold true, even today.  I don’t ask that question anymore but the “retired” answer seems to be more and more attractive to me now.  If not retired, then maybe ready for my next stage of life…

Blogging 101 for the HR Professional: Part I

As you know, I spend a fair amount of time blogging about recruiting software and the talent management industry.  I’m always surprised by the small number of HR professionals who are also blogging.  It’s true, it does take time, but I’ve found that blogging is a great way to get more exposure for our company and products.

 

My intention in this post is to inspire other HR professional and recruiters to also consider blogging so with that, here are my 5 Reasons Why Blogging in…

Now, Is That Appropriate Language?







I may be shaking a few trees today. Or stirring a few pots. Or even whacking a few beehives with a big, fat stick. But guess what? I'm not afraid. Like the Wright Brothers, I'm letting it fly.







I can't help it..., I have held it in long enough. As a matter of fact, it is ready to bust out of me like Pillsbury Biscuit dough when it pops out of the can. While it is true that I am a firm… Continue
