We recently started hiring again at Recruitee. Regardless of the fact that we build recruiting software, we discovered that getting the word out about our vacancies was not as easy as we would expect. We tried some…Continue

We contacted Suzanne Lucas, also known as the Evil HR Lady, and asked if we could interview her about the topic of technology in the HR world. She agreed, and during the very first question, we mentioned…Continue
Based on a suggestion from Andy Headworth and just before St Valentines day, I've been looking at sourcing techniques for recruiters to find love. As a result I've added to my Facebook search tool to include 'Relationship Status' and 'Interested In' searches. You can now use this to find single…Continue

California banned social media snooping in 2012, but other states have been slower to adopt similar laws.
This year, Maine will become the 23rd state to restrict employers' access to social media accounts of applicants and employees. The others are: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland,…Continue

So I’m going to tell it to you straight. When it comes to investing time in a Facebook page, lately, I’m just plain against it. Well, that is unless you’re going to spend money on ads. Seriously. The social media budget is a reality.
I’m sorry if you’ve spent a ton of resources and energy building out an organic Facebook plan. News flash: the organic only days are gone. Organic reach is in the…Continue
Remember Recruiting in the 90's. Life was easy. Life was simple. You had a fax machine, job boards, and your new computer running AOL and Windows 95 with your SPAM free email box. Then came dot com bust, and then social media and just basically upended your simple recruiting ways. It's time to join Recruiters on Facebook. We need some people to talk about what they know (or don't) about the latest Recruiting trends, jobs, and whatever that you think is important to: Recruiters, Sourcers,…Continue

I was looking at a number of ways for recruiters to automatically post jobs and other content onto Twitter, LinkedIn and all the other social channels. There are lots of ways to do this and it is really very simple to set this up. I've put together a short video demonstrating how to use the free version of Hootsuite to schedule posts and also connect to an RSS feed to do this automatically.
While I'm using Hootsuite to automate and schedule my content it is very easy to see how this…Continue
The big news in the last week seems to be that Facebook can tell you if your relationship is going to work. No, they're not clairvoyant, it's based on research from Jon Kleinberg of Cornell University surrounding something called "dispersion." Jon…Continue
According to The Next Web, Facebook has started rolling out a new “Professional Skills” section to all users. This addition will be below the “Work and Education” section on profiles. When a user is adding skills, skills will be auto suggested in the same functionality as when you’re…Continue
While I usually encourage corporate recruiting departments to create a separate Facebook Career Page (to build a Talent Community and keep your recruiting messages targeted to that community), staffing companies have the unique benefit of being able to maintain a single page on Facebook. That's because they don't necessarily need to separate their messages between clients and candidates.
Manpower has really made the most out of their …Continue

Facebook can be a great way to ask employees for referrals, as well as for your employees to find referrals. As a best practice, you should also allow those candidates to apply directly on Facebook. If you take any part of the process off of Facebook, you may find that they loose interest. If you’re going to ask…Continue

Companies are constantly asking how they can create a great Facebook Career Page to recruit top talent for their organization. Rather than simply telling them how to make a great page, it's so much easier to show them with live examples. Here's what we like about HP's page:
For one, they've created a dedicated page for HP Careers which they keep separate from their corporate marketing page. Their …Continue

Last week I hosted the 10th Annual HR conference at the Ritz Carlton here in Grand Cayman and we invited a
number of international speakers to attend. One of whom was Ryan Kahn, host of MTV's HIRED program (@hired). Ryan spoke very well about the engagement of the Millennial's and it did strike a chord with me that we are…Continue

Recruiting and hiring is really about developing relationships. Relationships require time, trust, and mutual interest. So while setting up a jobs page on Facebook or a company twitter account may be great for brand awareness, I’m not sure what it does for finding the right person to hire.

OK, so it has finally happened. We’ve talked about it for years, we’ve argued about it in the bar and in the board room:
“Facebook will always be for my personal stuff and Linkedin is always for my professional stuff.”
Not so fast. …

Human beings have two lives – public and private. But in this digital age where we choose to put out private lives in a public space, where do we draw the line?
If you’ve recently discovered that people you’re not even Facebook friends with have seen some of your embarrassing photos from your past, the answer is no, you can’t do anything because Facebook hasn’t actually violated your privacy.
Today the Facebook user is losing more and more control over their personal…Continue
