Source of Hire & Candidate Touchpoints

How to accurately measure source of hire with ATS & Job Distribution!

As I was looking at the Twitter stream last week, I came across this tweet:


"Most important recruiting analytic is hardest to Identify: source of hire"

I found this tweet interesting for a few reasons.


First, I think we all understand that this is a huge pain point for many organizations.  Recruiting organizations are still having a hard time to accurately tracking source to hire with their ATS and other…

First Round Interview? No, First Round Impressions

Preface: This post is written less as my opinion and more as a culmination of all the feedback (use cases) some four thousand high-end technology professionals have given me over the past three plus years.

We are in one of the tightest, if not the tightest candidate markets since, well…forever. More open positions than qualified candidates and new companies sprouting up every day (like the dot com). That said, the technical community has maintained a very high bar…

Automate Recruiting Processes and Stay Ahead of your Competition

Recruiters and hiring managers spend a lot of time to source resumes and extract resumes. Generally when you search for resumes in search engines, you get a lot of results. Along with the resumes, the search results also contain other unwanted information. So, to pick only the resumes from the search results, you need to manually click each result and check whether it is a resume or not, and then segregate the resumes alone from the search results. This is a time-consuming and tiresome…

Effective Closing-from the mouths of babes...

I've been in sales since I was about 15 years old and have worked a desk since late 1999. I've had the pleasure (and in some cases nearly nauseating pain) of working with some of the best sales people around. I've had the opportunity to train fledgling salespeople and watch them grow and develop from rookies, paralyzed by call anxiety, into take-no-prisoners, hard line closers. But, the truth is, with all of the…

Where did that hire come from, anyway? And who cares?

A long time ago – say, in the early 1990s – employers had a very good
