Does this thing come with an instruction manual?

Earlier this week I posted a few profile-enhancing tips on a LinkedIn discussion group frequented by active job seekers. One of the things I constantly notice when helping newcomers get up to speed on the essential functionality of LinkedIn is how poor they tend to be at populating their profiles with meaty, search-friendly information.

This is especially noticeable in the job seeker community. Rather than placing career relevant and recruiter magnet content, they fill their headline,…

Leading the Way to a Winning Employee Referral Program

Leads present an excellent opportunity for corporate recruiters to garner more qualified candidates via their employee referral programs. Permitting employees to do their own initial qualifications and refer names and contact details without resumes opens the door to a wider group of top talent who don’t necessarily have updated CV’s ready and available to submit.

However, many corporate recruiters are hesitant to dive in and forego resumes at the referral stage. Reasons range from…

What’s your recruitment metrics story?

Recently, I had the distinct pleasure to listen to three of our clients speak about their recruitment strategies at the Taleo World SIG this past week.  What really hit me is that each organization had their own unique story to tell about their recruitment marketing strategy.  One spoke about their need to innovate despite internal restrictive compliance and regulations.  Another spoke about their focus on…

How do you measure recruitment quality?

Yesterday as I was reading Glen Cathey’s post “What’s Wrong with Job Boards?“.  In the post, he talks about job boards and how they can still be effective despite what you might hear about their impending demise.  I encourage you to give it a read.

3 Dimensional Candidate Care.. BE the ravioli

There was a recent stat published on Source of Candidate, with Referrals coming in at #1 (23% of hires).  I'm still amazed that there are so many companies out there that do not have a formal or even informal internal referral program.
