An Alternative View on Recruiting

I was speaking to a company owner last week who let me know he spent over $125,000 a year in job postings on major job boards. I was FLOORED! When I asked him about the quality of the candidates he got from those ads, he said that he received average or less-than-average candidates but that “I use it for the…

Job boards Aren't Dying (but a lot of recruiters are doing their best to help kill them off)

I sometimes think people are thinking far too hard and becoming much too confused about the whole recruitment process and how to attract applicants.

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....

For a few years now, I have tried to spread the word that recruitment strategies and processes would be undergoing a radical transformation away from what recruiters have been doing for the past 10-15 years. The shift in technology advances and possibilities, along with a new generational workforce would demand it.…

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.

How Twitter Built My Brand

Oh, c’mon! Go ahead! Take a crack at it! It’s really not that intimidating. A couple tweets here, a couple tweets there; a 

few RT’s sprinkled in, several hundred #’s here, and……BAM!!! You’re a Tweetin’ machine! The first time I set up my first Twitter account, @MikeChuidian, I really didn’t know what to…

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."

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…
