It doesn't matter if I am a hiring manager or a candidate on the market or an event attendee (career fairs, open house, speed interviewing or whatever), it is pretty apparent that most of the folks that are recruiting for companies today do not have the skills, knowledge, or experience to meet the minimum expectations of the job.

Having adequate insurance is a necessity for many baby boomers; and it seems that AARP is the best carrier for Plan F Medicaid coverage. Anyone who has worked and paid into the system is eligible for Medicaid Plan F benefits once they reach the age of 65. In fact, most Americans opt for AARP as their carrier for a plethora of reasons.

While efficiency metrics like time to fill and cost per hire are still part of the evaluation process, quality metrics that are tracking where organizations are finding their most qualified candidates and hires are becoming integral to strategic decision making.
However, even with these metrics there is room for growth. Over the past few years, there’s a push to move…Continue
