Do you have a March Madness bracket? I personally have a few running right now. My strategy to pick this time? Random.
My logic here is that every year before now, I’ve gone on ESPN and checked the predictions from the sportscasters. I have that little bit of hope that this could be the… Continue

Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent… Continue

Even with all the information out there in support of social media for businesses, many are still convinced it isn’t worth their time or energy. They’re wrong, and if you’re not participating in social media, then so are you! Here are some major social media… Continue

I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.
Anyway, I… Continue

Companies with a diverse workforce perform better. A 2009 study by McKinsey shows a connection between gender diversity and financial performance of a company: a company in which the management is gender diverse (more than 30% women in top management of the company), for example, had a 53 % better EBIT margin. So far so good.
So how do you get a more diverse workforce? Well, you probably already know it: it all depends on fair personnel selection. Fairness… Continue

Employer branding, employee engagement and social recruiting.
Three phrase in every talent acquisition professionals’ vocabulary. It’s also the three areas where most HR leaders are trying to build business cases for new initiatives that will keep their company on the edge of hiring… Continue

I knew finding a job was hard work, but I had never imagined that it would be this hard. I have always believed in creating my own source of income, working for myself, and running the business how I wanted it to be ran. Sure I worked part time at a few grocery stores for extra money, but for the most part, I have always created my own source of income. Over this past year however, I decided that I would have to get a "real" job, because I no longer had enough money to continue building my… Continue

With the proliferation of articles out there on interviewing, you’d be tempted to assume that interviewing a new client is easy, or at least a skill that every hiring manager has down pat. Even seasoned recruiters and HR professionals have trouble occasionally with interviews. In my position, I see lots of behind the scenes data about interviewing, particularly screening… Continue

We’ve come across this time and again, not only that; it has got us wondering what the hype is all about and for something as futile as this? You might also be puzzled about why this particular topic is given as much importance as it has. Well this is all about the changing trends that I’ve been mentioning countless times.
Any which ways with the internet now replacing the traditional methods of recruiting, keeping in pace with these new developments is just as important. As a result… Continue

It’s becoming ever-more critical that sourcers and recruiters know how to sell their company or client to candidates without getting stuck in a monetary loop. This means understanding all of the non-compensation extras which can help you acquire amazing talent – a vital skill when salary alone is not your strongest selling point.
Start by creating a list which documents everything that might matter to candidates, and… Continue

You already know all about the intersection of recruiting and marketing. But leveraging marketing for maximum return on your recruiting results means going beyond just building an employer brand. It means making that brand – and the story behind it – compelling enough to convert passive visitors into qualified candidates.

Everyone is talking about big data but there aren't enough people talking about how you might actually use that data for anything useful. Slap all the numbers you want in a PowerPoint deck - if it doesn't add up to more money or making your job easier, who cares?

Recruiting the right talent is certainly not an exact science.
In many cases, you will hit the nail on the head, delivering the right guy or gal for the position. Other times, however, you will go back and review the process to see where things might have gone… Continue

The long-standing stereotype of the HR professional has been that he or she is more a ‘people person’ than a ‘numbers person,’ one who shies away from hard data, science and math. While this is somewhat understandable given that ‘human’ is embedded within the very job title itself, it is by long stretches an unfair…

Recruiting is acquiring talent for your interests. IMHO I built one of the better blogs about recruiting, the SmartRecruiters Blog. In my three and a half years running SmartRecruiters content marketing and social media, I've recruited and edited 250+ writers and our work amassed 3+ million pageviews. I'd like to share some tips on how I did it and provide you with a directory of top recruitment… Continue

As a recruiter, what do you look for in each and every individual that you try and recruit?
For some recruiters, the goal is to get the best educated/most experienced individuals. Others, meantime, look for the ones who not only offer experience and know-how, but… Continue
