Facebook can be a great way to ask employees for referrals, as well as for your employees to find referrals. As a best practice, you should also allow those candidates to apply directly on Facebook. If you take any part of the process off of Facebook, you may find that they loose interest. If you’re going to ask…Continue

Talent Acquisition is a lot like courtship/dating. In Corporate Talent Acquisition - you have to be a grade-A slut, totally promiscuous, and with rocket-powered libido. That means never settling down with anyone permanently, constantly sourcing new prospects to date and get to know, and cutting…Continue

If you have a candidate that you cannot place, give them a gift they can use. Why? It gives the impression that you care and that can easily translate into more referrals. When I was running a full desk, I gave out an ebook of job search strategies to everyone I met with and encouraged them to pass it on. What happened? A significant increase in referrals. (It works!) All that being said, please consider my (now) free ebook, "How To Find a Job Now (...and never have to look again!) and…Continue

This blog had to be posted today. See, today is the first Monday of the month – also known as “New Hire Orientation” day at my company. I had 4 new hires in today’s class, including an amazing employee referral. This candidate had applied to a handful of jobs, but I had not given much consideration to him until one of our employees brought up his name. This employee is one of our rock stars (forgive the overused term) so I thought I should take a 2nd look. I’m glad I did. After a…Continue

I've been a member of RBC for years now, entered as a recruiter (and still do some for select clients) and am now an executive director for a job board.

So I have a question; if you have a business that can help someone who posted a blog about a problem, situation or concern…Continue

There is something almost archaic about the term job board. It connotes a dirty tack ridden area with pamphlets adorned across its frayed wooden edges. This is a place where a multitude of companies each place their latest and greatest positions for individuals to cluster around, sneer and glean any piece of vital information that can assist their application.
It’s almost scandalous just how long the term job board has been around. Why do we accept this term? The pace of…Continue
