A picture is worth a thousand words. Cliché? Yes. True? Absolutely! Especially in terms of social media, people have so much to look at and take in (the average Facebook visit is 20 minutes), that pictures stand out and make the biggest impact because visuals are a little easier to process. For example, you can tell people how awesome your office is, but it's so much more powerful to show them your… Continue

The Houston Gulf Coast Symposium on HR Issues was this Wednesday and Thursday. The sessions that I attended were excellent. Thank you to the exhibitors for their financial support! A couple of the presenters mentioned that in a recent survey, more CEOs interviewed sited Human Capital as their top challenge than any other concern. HR expertise is more important now than ever and it is finally being recognized. Recruiting, engagement, and retention are now key concerns on the minds in the… Continue

I am fortunate to have a warm and receptive boss that cares about my future and goes above and beyond to provide me with the tools and resources to gain the necessary skills to grow and work in a very satisfying environment.
With her cheerleader persona, focus on rewards and recognition and balanced workflow, she is a role model for the qualities that we look for in a “cool” boss. On a daily basis, I witness a leader that:
- Fosters innovation
- Promotes strong…

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,… Continue

There's a lot of buzz among recruiters about talent communities. The idea, from the recruiting side, is to build a talent community of dedicated professionals in a particular area. Professionals benefit by being connected with job opportunities and news in a particular area. Recruiters… Continue

Let’s start off with first identifying exactly what a talent community is not. There is skepticism around the concept because I feel that a lot of recruiters still don’t actually get it.
A talent community, although it has similar benefits, is not an ATS (Applicant Tracking System). An ATS is a software… Continue

In looking ahead to 2013, as talent communities gain in popularity, we are predicting a social renaissance of the corporate career website. This is a direct result of the social enterprise’s need to connect with top talent on the candidate’s terms. The best talent expects a certain level of respect, transparency and ease as they engage with potential employers and make critical career decisions. Only… Continue

One strong opinion I have is this – if you aren’t recruiting as a HR Generalist, you’re an administrator, subject to being outsourced at your employer’s whim in the future. I believe HR people need to be heavily involved in the Talent acquisition process in their companies. I know recruiting can and is outsourced, but if you are good on the…

The relationship between corporate recruiters and candidates has witnessed a shift in the information available to the two parties. The widening use of the Internet, particularly social media, has opened up access to data on both sides, ushering in an age of transparency and a heightened potential of mutual communication. In other words, candidates are now in a better position to take the initiative and interact with organizations. This means that corporate recruiters have to step up… Continue

You may want to rethink hitting that ‘sell’ button next to your LinkedIn shares. It appearsFacebook’s newest job search app has landed with an unceremonious thud in the recruiting space.
Last week the app launched with much fanfare, probably because Facebook has done little to nothing when it comes to creating job apps.…
