The Impact of the Social Graph on Recruiting

For far too long, marketers, advertisers, and recruiters have undervalued the way actual decisions are made. Witness the interrupt driven nature of product advertising and job postings. The assumption is that by placing information in front of customers or prospective candidates, we will automatically convince them to buy our products or apply for work at our organization.



Real World Decisions

In the real world, this is not how things works at all. Most…

Digital Technology and Recruitment Agencies – RIP or Rejuvenation?

Even before “To google” became a verb, digital technology formed the pervasive backdrop for economic activity. Nowadays, even the most savvy recruiters are challenged to keep pace with the new functionality and devices that are constantly appearing in the marketplace. However, many recruitment consultancies appear to be adopting a “business as normal” approach without recognition of the tide change that digital technology brings. Companies who continue on, without addressing or integrating new… Continue

Let’s Keep Social Media ‘Strictly Professional’

When I first started using social media tools, I saw lots of complaints and news stories written about the level of personal information being shared. From what folks were eating for lunch to their relationship status, the strictly professional users felt these personal communications were diluting the ultimate value of these emerging platforms. While, there are some who can be described as oversharers; I actually think there is value in sharing personal information. Each one of us have many…

IT professionals benefiting from the GFC after the fact

Working in IT, just as in many other professional sectors, involved a bit of risky business as the GFC kicked the economy down a notch or ten. But since the economy cranked out of hibernation much more swiftly than was expected, IT projects that were put on hold are now being reinstated and the professionals who may have…

Can’t Talk NOW, Too Busy Building MY Brand

The opportunities to engage and interact are two of the most often communicated benefits of using social media. While these benefits sound good in theory, I’m not sure that most users are doing a good job of taking seriously their individual responsibility to ensure these benefits are realized. Often times, people who are active on social media and social networks are too busy building their own personal brand to be bothered with 2-way conversation. If the benefits of social media are the…

What Type of Twitterer Are You?

After being on Twitter for some time, most people quickly discover that there are several different types of Twitterer. I thought it would be fun to categorize these users into complete arbitrary groups for those that are having trouble placing them.



The Burnout

Like a shooting star, this Twitterer started with a flurry and ended with a whimper. After being so enamored with the site upon joining and tweeting multiple times throughout the day, this user has…

Whilst new technology is great, are we paying the price socially? (or how, once it's gone, you can never get that time back)

There's no getting away from it, every day we're becoming more and more obsessed with technology. Whilst it is great and clearly the way to go for the modern day recruiter on the go, I am starting to think too much of it can, at the relatively harmless end (apart from the risk of an iphone becoming your best friend rather than your dog or partner) zombify people, and, at its worst, put you in danger.



At the harmless end of things, take my… Continue

Aim to Manage, Not Control Social Recruiting

As the conversation shifts from whether or not to use Social Recruiting to how best to use these new tools; I think one of the foundational principles that companies need to embrace is an aim to manage, not control the interactions. I think there are some compelling reasons why this approach will ultimately make the efforts of companies seeking talent more successful.



Network Ownership

In a network, each member is at the center of their own personal and…

Implications of Twitter’s Biz Model for Social Recruiting

Since being founded in 2006, Twitter has constantly been on the hunt for a successful business model. The Wall Street Journal reports that they have finally settled on an advertising-based model. With their large and growing user base, this makes a lot of sense. However,… Continue

Playing Hard To Get...Will Get You Nowhere

It has been a little while since I wrote a blog post dedicated to the stupid stuff candidates do...so sweet, clueless candidates, this one is for you. ***raises tall Red-Eye from Starbucks in mock salute***





As girls, we are taught to play hard to get to get what you want (or at least men). I've never really paid attention to this rule...namely, because I'm naturally so awkward it wouldn't really matter what I did. The (less than favorable) end result was always the same. I was a… Continue

Recruiting Google & Facebook Users

According to Alexa.com, Google (#1) and Facebook (#2) are the two most popular sites on the Internet. For companies actively engaged in recruiting talent via the Internet, it is important to consider, what are the defining qualities of these sites that make them so attractive to Internet users?

Social Recruiting: Evolution or Revolution?

While considering how best to categorize Social Recruiting, I began to consider, “Is this new trend: revolutionary or evolutionary?” For some, using social media tools for recruiting is simply a natural evolution. Whereas, other believe that it is a revolutionary change.



Revolution

From sharing job postings with your network to finding prospective candidates on Twitter to blogging about the job search, proponents of revolution argue that while recruiting has…
