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 …Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
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…Continue
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:
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

Do you ever wonder what makes some recruiters so successful while others don’t seem to be able to produce great results? I’ve been in the business for a long time and worked with many, many recruiters in both agency and corporate environments. The great ones are happy to share their knowledge and secrets of success and I am an enthusiastic learner. Allow me to share what I have learned with you and I would love to hear back what you have learned on your recruiting journeys. What I have…Continue
Last week I attended Radical Planet the Recruitment and HR unconference in Toronto. There was a great track on blogging and writting blogs to I took the opportunity of asking some questions on how the write a really good recruitment blog.
Steven Duque lead the blogging track at the Unconference and was recommending Tumbler as the best platform to get started. While Wordpress may be better for SEO, Tumblr is easier to use and has better tools to allow people to share your…Continue

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…Continue
“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…Continue
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…Continue

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…Continue
