Can Recruiting be Completely Mobile?

Do you remember driving without a cell phone back in the day?  What were we thinking?  What did we do if we were the unfortunate recipients of a flat tire on the highway at 11PM?

We survived.  We walked.  We stuck our thumbs high in the air (not recommended).  That’s what we did back then.  These days, our mobile devices are pretty much our everything and they can do just about everything.

While mobile is critical for every business and function, it’s currently not the most…

How to Tell If A Recruiter Can Be Your Next HR Manager…

Posted by Kris Dunn:

One strong opinion I have is this – if you aren’t recruiting as a HR Generalist, you’re an administrator, subject to being outsourced at your employer’s whim in the future.  I believe HR people need to be heavily involved in the Talent acquisition process in their companies.  I know recruiting can and is outsourced, but if you are good on the…

What experience are your candidates getting?

Nine years recruitment experience has made me sensitive to the struggles of a Jobseeker. All too often I hear about the very lengthy and daunting recruitment processes that follow.

Unfortunately for Jobseekers, clicking the ‘apply’ button for that perfect job can mean being redirected to a site and an application process of 6+ pages to complete; an arguably ‘necessary’ requirement for gaining candidate information.

But are the words ‘lengthy’ and ‘daunting’ really the words an…

The 4 year review cycle: Why recruiting doesn’t have that luxury

With the polls for this year’s Presidential Election open and closing today, we should know tomorrow who our next President will be for the next four years.  As a nation we’ve had four years to evaluate the current president and now have a big decision to make.  Do we believe in the status quo and what the incumbent will be able to do off his experience or do we believe that the upstart will be able to accomplish more with his new perspective?  This is a decision every voter will make today…
