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…

LinkedIn Errors

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…

Don't be DUMB - Do SOMETHING when somebody reviews your LinkedIn profile

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…

Tech Professionals Hate Our Guts

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…

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…

LinkedIn and Stranger Danger: The risks and rewards of connecting with people you don’t know.

 

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…

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…

LinkedIn Best Practices

LinkedIn is “the” top place for many recruiters and for many people I have met “LinkedIn” is almost equals “sourcing”. Everyone we had placed in the last year was initially contacted on LinkedIn.

We all agree on the importance of not spamming candidates and carefully reviewing their profiles before we reach out.

However, LinkedIn's nature is not fully understood by many, I think. Here's what I read on a blog post on ERE today: “Examine the resultant profile summaries…. “Red…

Had to laugh, when I saw this Job Posting ...

We have seen reports of fake accounts on Facebook (about 15-20%), I am sure there are similar fake accounts at other social media websites.

I just saw this flagrant posting on a competing Social media site..Job postings such as this are on the rise on these social media groups, makes it a challenge for group owners to keep them away. Unfortunately…

LinkedIn: a List of Challenges

I love LinkedIn! It has been bringing us more matching candidates and business connections than everything else combined out there. For my own recruiting business LinkedIn accounts for 100% placed candidates in the last twelve months and a large chunk of sourcing information that I submit to others when sourcing.

Yet taking the full advantage of LinkedIn is not straightforward! There are numerous obstacles and misleading marketing messages, blogs, and tutorials. Some LinkedIn members…

How to avoid a Middle Management career rut

 

Earlier in the year I wrote about the lost generation of middle managers in retail whom face limited progression opportunities as a result of the recession. Since that article the redundancies have continued to flow thick and fast with all sorts of rumours about which retailer is going to collapse next. One might think that with all the doom and gloom in the market that the opportunities to develop your career are few and far between. However…

If you are ambitious and do want…

Risks to Recruiters in Candidate Social Media

Eurocom released the results of their Worldwide annual survey in March revealing some interesting trends and thoughts in the world of social media.  The research identified that worldwide, one in five technology firms rejected a job applicant because of social media.  However, data made available by BullHorn Reach suggested that in North America 91% of hiring managers screen potential candidates, using a combination of LinkedIn (48%), Twitter (53%) and most commonly Facebook (76%) throughout…
