I'm less worried about getting people in the door and wondering how the hell you even got anyone to apply after those awful reviews. (Do you seriously have dry holiday parties? Forget it.)
The thing is, recruiters don't usually think about reviews and the candidates…Continue

I often comment about the reliance recruitment firms have on traditional sourcing strategies, but recently I’ve also noticed that website search engine optimisation (SEO) is also still perceived by a lot of agencies as being the most important form of branding outside of job boards.
I get this, it makes sense to have a high ranking website on Google so that people find you when they type in terms relating to your business. This blog isn’t focused on SEO but just quickly if you are…Continue

The web is a visual medium. We all love to see pictures along with a story so why dont we put more visuals into job descriptions?
Its such as easy thing to do, or perhaps not since ATS's dont really let you upload an image.
