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
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
As a recruiter, it's important to be savvy and creative while searching for ideal job candidates. While there are plenty of candidates out there, corporate and business clients aren't paying money to have a recruiter find them just any employee. To dig through the pool and find the best possibilities, a recruiter must employ smart tactics for locating candidates that possess the skills, knowledge,…Continue

I had the privilege of interviewing Linkedin's most connected woman. Stacy Zapar has been on the platform for 10 years and amassed 38,000 connections and counting. I thought I was doing good with 2000+ connections but her network just blew me away

Top 3 Reasons Why Recruiters (both corporate and external) Love Linkedin:
1) LinkedIn has become the best hunting ground for recruiters.

Way back in 2008, I created a training guide called Resume Forensics. In a nutshell, it was a how-to for finding resumes and passive candidates on Google, Yahoo, Bing and a few other resources. In all modesty, it was an underground hit. I…Continue

My LinkedIn account is having multiple problems with the functionality. It's happening for the second time in the past few months. I can't use my RPS account (it is a variation of LinkedIn Recruiter). I hope they will fix it again.
The nice LinkedIn managers, who support my RPS account, point out…Continue
I've noticed online networkers have become much more aware of people who look at their LinkedIn profile during the last few months, but frankly not many do anything and let potential opportunities slip by - perhaps for the fear that they don't want to appear too pushy. I suspect there's something very British about that, but I admit that's a guess (wouldn't it be fascinating to see the LinkedIn behaviour stats country by…Continue
Like every other recruiter on the face of the earth, I use LinkedIn to source candidates, specifically the IT kind. I am also a member of some groups on LinkedIn that are relevant to my industry and the industry I recruit for. So one day I’m combing through my LI feed and come across a posting in the .NET Developers group. The title of the post…”RECRUITERS: If you post a JOB on our DISCUSSION board I will ban you…Continue
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…Continue

LinkedIn releases "LinkedIn Endorsements," a system that lets users endorse the skills listed on a LinkedIn profile. Plus, Jim is a bit happy about returning for a new season of his show. Tune in to see for yourself.
When you reach out to connect with a new person on LinkedIn, there is a warning printed at the bottom of the screen: “Important: Only invite people you know well and who know you.” But, why?
I am a complete supporter of networking via social media, so I do not necessarily condone only connecting with people you know.
There are definite perks to adding…Continue

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…Continue
