How to cement your reputation as a dorkola recruiter

Here we go… another horrible example of the type of cold call/emails some recruiters are sending.

For the student it provides them with some work experience in the real world and exposure to varying industries from which they can plan out their…

Social Recruitment through Pictures

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…
