A few months back we published the Corporate Mobile Readiness Report, an assessment of the Fortune 500′s presence on the mobile web. We evaluated the companies on six criteria ranging from native apps, to mobile optimization of the corporate site, the career site, as well as the continuity between them. It was not surprising to find out that most companies are not ready. Less than 30% have mobile corporate websites, and only 13% have a…Continue

Over the last six months as I have fully immersed myself into the world of mobile recruiting one of the first things I learned about was the difference between an mSite and a native app. I have found that there is a lot of confusion out there on this subject as well as some strong opinions, so I thought it would be worthy of a discussion.

On March 24th Bob McIntosh posted a blog titled “80% of today’s jobs are landed through networking.” The article was well articulated and discussion ensued that pulled at the very fabric of what networking is, how to use it, how important it is, and how is it defined. Some astute readers identified a lack of support for the statistics as a perpetuating concern (strong ideas Karen and Sandra); others identified the notion of causality (excellent point Kyle). The question really…Continue

Sounds sort of weird right? A Marketing Director to work inside Human Resources. The reality is that marketing may be one of the key things missing from the world of social recruiting and justifying budgets each year to the executive team. Having a dedicated Marketing person that can analyze and execute campaigns is something that could prove vital to keeping HR recruiting budgets in tact as well as bringing in more quality talent.
Tracking all of your ads and…Continue
Things not going very well at work? Maybe you just want to see what’s ‘out there’ in the jobs marketplace. Whatever your reason for looking for a new job, and however ideal or not your current employer may be, there is still a certain etiquette involved in the way you go about your search.…Continue
One of the most important recruiting tools that recruiters and hiring managers need to have is a resume database of qualified candidates. Although the above statement seems to be familiar to the recruiting fraternity, the words “qualified candidates” means a lot to the recruiters and hiring managers as it determines their success. Why qualified candidates?

Now, with smart phones, the Internet, video conferencing and widespread acceptance of the work-at-home model, it’s not only entirely possible to operate a successful home business, it’s becoming the way…Continue

4. There is great need for a…
