This year marks the 50th anniversary of the classic Rankin-Bass holiday special, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Despite its’ age, this stop-motion special still appeals to kids today and certainly evokes nostalgia amongst those who don’t believe in Santa any longer (sorry if I just ruined that for you).
There is a time and place for nostalgia and re-exploring our past,…Continue

We all hear about how critical it is to make a good first impression. An important study recently showed that first impressions are eerily accurate and frustratingly arbitrary.…Continue
As a marketer, I’ve always been fascinated by the customer service experiences that I have as a consumer and the different methods used by companies to communicate with customers. I’ve had bad experiences and great ones and it was a very good experience yesterday that I would like to share as it provides some insight…Continue
We’ve all been in a situation like that at one point or another. You can’t connect on skype, the video interviewing platform doesn’t work or even something as simple as not knowing if you’re calling the hiring manager or they’re calling you. The company…Continue

Poverty, debt and obesity are complex and serious societal issues with multiple potential causes and no simple solutions. That’s why society looks for easy targets to blame.
Robots are also complex and serious, yet in a dramatically different way. Depending on the perspective, robots are either credited…Continue
You can almost recognize it when you see it, can't you? It's that look in someone's eye. The way they carry themselves. The determination that they seem to ooze. It's that person who has a chip on their shoulder...something to prove.
I grew up attending a very academically challenging private school from 6th grade to 12th grade. The school like to boast that if we could…Continue
Hooey. If you aren't familiar with this term, it's a nicer and friendlier way of calling "BS" on something or someone. It's when your words and your actions don't line up and your hypocrisy has been exposed. Such is the case with Recruiters. I am calling "hooey" on you today.
I have been in recruiting for around 10 years. During that time, I have interviewed and hired countless…Continue
There are fewer things in this world that irritate me more than when someone can’t follow simple directions. For example, fill out the application (at the time after we’ve scheduled an interview of course – I wouldn’t want to enrage any of the candidate experience gods by asking for legal paperwork too early on when I should be offering a Frappa Mocha Someshit so that I can make…Continue
The bad news: applying and interviewing for jobs is just as cumbersome as ever.
The ugly news: many employers must…Continue
During the pursuit of great candidates, ask yourself these questions:
Do candidates know you? Do they like you? Do you stay in regular contact with your candidates even if they don’t get the job? Do they come to you and a knowledgeable resource when it comes to employment? …

This week I took my youngest daughter to see Disney's latest, "Saving Mr. Banks." Truth be told, she wanted to see it far more than I did; I didn't expect to glean much from it at all. I'm pleased to report I was wrong. You might not think that a movie about the making of another movie, Mary Poppins,…Continue
Today, I’ll be at the #DICETRU event in Boston talking about the candidate experience. It should be a tremendous event with great practitioners and thought leaders. My discussion will be on the whole gamut of the candidate experience and hope the discussion will take a mind of it’s own towards the needs and thoughts of the audience. As everyone knows, it…Continue
The benefits of holding a college degree for a job-seeker are fairly obvious - August 2013 stats show that the unemployment rate for college graduates is just under 4 percent, compared to nearly 8 percent of those who only have a high school diploma and nearly 11 percent for high-school dropouts.
However, that only answers the question how much attending college should matter for…Continue

We are big believers in candidate experience here at Jibe. In fact, it underpins everything we do. That’s why we continue to be enthusiastic supporters of The Talent Board’s annual Candidate Experience Awards. Announced at the HR Technology Conference earlier this month, we’d…Continue

This year I had the absolute privilege to help The Candidate Experience Awards as a member of the CandE Council. It’s been 3 years now and as someone who has followed this program since inception, it’s absolutely tremendous to see how much it’s grown in such a short time (credit is due to founders…Continue
Are you making premature assumptions about applicants or candidates? Here’s a few common categories focused on finding the right fit. Do you see anything potentially wrong with these ways of assessing talent?
Once a person’s hard skills are confirmed through visually examining on paper or on screen or verbally over the phone or in person, soft skills almost always become a more prominent factor. Many people place a tremendous amount of credibility…Continue
You know what’s money? The HR Technology Conference is money. And it definitely knows it.
Yep, it’s that time of year and Jibe is ready to hit The Strip, roll some dice, tip our cap to…
