Facebook’s June 2014 Ads Update - The Down Low

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…

Facebook has a Group for Recruiters. It's called...Recruiters

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,…

Auto-Posting Jobs and other stuff

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…

If Facebook Can Predict Breakups, Why Not Your Next Referral Hire?

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…

Will Facebook Replace LinkedIn?

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…

Facebook Recruitment: How Manpower Does It

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 …

Use Facebook Recruitment to Attract Employee Referrals

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…

Facebook Recruiting: How HP Does It

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 …

Facebook Fails

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…

Quote for the Day: Monday, March 25, 2013

On "Does a “like” really mean anything?"

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.

John Sumser, Social…

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…

Facebook Graph Search: don't get caught with your pants down

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. …

Facebook Graph Search for Recruiters

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…

Is Facebook entering the recruiting industry?

In a recent article published by Forbes, according to a spokesperson for the company, this is not true.  I've been personally waiting for them to step up to compete with LinkedIn for awhile and glad that it appears this is starting to take shape. 

What they have created is essentially a Social jobs partnership application.  The page allows users to search for jobs by location, industry and skill; apply to them directly through Facebook; and then share the jobs to their social…

Facebook Launches ‘Lame’ Job App

Posted by Vanessa Bostwick

You may want to rethink hitting that ‘sell’ button next to your LinkedIn shares. It appearsFacebook’s newest job search app has landed with an unceremonious thud in the recruiting space.

Last week the app launched with much fanfare, probably because Facebook has done little to nothing when it comes to creating job apps.…

Facebook celebrates one billion users with a chair

Facebook celebrates one billion users with a weird ad campaign about a chair. When I saw the commercial, I felt compelled to post a reaction. (This is it.) Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of Facebook's ad campaign.

Back in the saddle...

After almost five years, I have returned to the IT staffing industry in order to be a founding member and recruiter at Kranect. I have found the industry somewhat changed in that social media and technology have changed how people interact when it comes to jobs. For example when I was last recruiting, Twitter was barely in existence, Facebook was just becoming available to non-students, and LinkedIn wasn’t the recruiting tool it has become today. People were still on MySpace for goodness…
