This can be done…

The pleasure of life:
We were sent to this world with a lot of blessings available to us and the precautionary measures that we need to take while making use of these blessings and pleasures were also told to us. It’s normal to feel an inclination towards somebody who you find attractive and handsome and you can’t restrain from divulging the feelings most of the times. You can’t forbid a girl from falling for a really cute guy and you most certainly can’t make a guy not fall in… Continue

But the results of our recently released 2014 Jibe Talent Acquisition Survey tells another story.
In our survey, our independent research partner Kelton Global asked more than 300 in-house recruiting… Continue

As a talent acquisition professional, would it concern you to find out that 19% of job seekers would rather spend an entire day at the DMV than go through the frustrations associated with applying for a job online? How about 22% saying they’d rather speak in front of 100 strangers? Or 12% saying they’d rather get a root canal or go skydiving without any training? Those are some pretty damning data points about the level of frustration associated with the job application process today, but… Continue

I’ve had two experiences implementing executive recruiting systems, once at a boutique search firm and another at Lockheed Martin. In the former, we were moving from a paper-based system to a digital one. In the latter, the function was in start-up, so we had the luxury of beginning from scratch.
