Technology and the numbers game is destroying creativity of thought.

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…

Baby Steps in HR Technology: Let’s Talk Job Boards

When job boards hit the scene over 15 years ago, they firmly grabbed a solid spot in online recruiting. As job boards have evolved, it has become an understatement to refer to them as simply job boards any longer. They have morphed into several different types of online job search and recruiting…

Are job boards being outdone by social media? Not really.

Following up on one of my previous blog posts, it’s pretty obvious that social media recruiting is not going to go away any time soon. But, this does not mean that the job boards aren’t vital anymore to the recruiting industry. They…

You lost me at "Hello" ~ a note to job board and sourcing tool salespeople

I Hate to Say "I Told You So," But....

Where does innovation come from in recruitment?

With the Recruiting Innovation Summit this week in San Francisco, I thought it was as good a time to discuss innovation in our space and discuss how and why it comes about.

10 earth-shattering things that happened in online recruiting in 2012

Hey, it’s the end of the year (almost) and time to take a look at what happened in 2012. Did anything? Well, actually, yes – quite a bit.

Why You Should Look for a New Job at Your Current One

Earlier today, I read an article about the top job search mistake: looking for a new job from your current one. While it's a little over the top to contact recruiters and submit resumes using your current workplace email address or phone number, I disagree to some extent with the alarmist assertion that "once the boss knows you are thinking about leaving, they might just show you the door first." While this…

There's not a lack of talent, there's a lack of creativity and forethought!

The following is an elongated version of a comment I made recently about an article which posed the question "Does talent grow on trees" and debated whether there is a talent shortage in the current marketplace.

As someone who has worked in recruitment marketing for over 20 years, I would say there has been a definite dumbing down in the messages that some people, recruiters and employers alike, put out there these days under the guise of being a…

What’s ahead: why I’m attending HR Tech next week

Being a full time consultant is wonderful – I have the opportunity to work with hundreds of interesting clients, tackle unusual and cutting edge projects, and yes, get paid for it. But there is a drawback – although I’m in contact with dozens of people every week via phone, email, Skype, and Twitter, I don’t actually see them. I’m here in Iowa, and they’re…well, all over the world.

Conferences are a great way to see your colleagues and…
