Why Singapore? Technology and Development

With the technological world advancing at a rapid speed, Singapore has become one of the forerunners in the race towards innovation and advancement. Following in the footsteps of California and India, it has been dubbed by Eyal Gura, founder and CEO of PicApp, as on its way to becoming the third Silicon Valley of the world.

Serving as the host to Echelon, Asia’s leading web technology event, Singapore is currently attracting hundreds of new business ventures that concentrate on computing… Continue

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? Once defined, how can companies seeking to hire best-in-class talent leverage this information to better recruit with prospective candidates?



Instant, Well-Organized…

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…

Social Recruiting & The Talent Funnel

When thinking about the benefits of Social Recruiting, I think one of the most compelling is the positive effect on controlling the quality of candidates that enter the talent funnel. As a development engineer, one of the fundamental lessons I learned is “Garbage In, Garbage Out”. It didn’t matter what software tools I applied to make sense of the input data, if one of my collection channels was faulty; the entire experiment would have to be scrapped. This example is not to suggest that…

Don't Forget The Customer...



It's no secret that I'm in love with technology. I enjoy getting my hands on the newest gadgets, widgets, apps and devices that are available and figuring out how they work - or just enjoying what they do. I've been known to go a few sleepless nights here and there just because there weren't enough hours in the day to wrap my head… Continue

Who is Your Company Evangelist?

Traditionally, the CEO has played the role of company evangelist. In fact, having a single company representative was perfect for a broadcast, one-way method of information dissemination. However, with the rise of social media and the corresponding call for authenticity, having the CEO assume the role of evangelist is no longer necessary or even desirable. Just as most consumers are mistrustful of direct advertising, there is also an increasing likelihood that statements from your CEO may be…

Anonymous Social Recruiting

Remember the first phase of the Social Web. During this time, anonymous comments with questionable intent and veracity were littered throughout the landscape of our Internet experience. In some cases, these comments cast enough doubt to prevent patronizing an establishment, purchasing a product, or applying for a job at a company. With the current evolution of the Social Web, comments are easily traceable to online profiles from Facebook, Twitter, Google, and LinkedIn. The ability to connect…

Is the recruitment database dead...?



Before I got into recruitment I spent a period of time developing and implementing technology solutions for the recruitment industry. For years ‘the database’ has been a key competitive edge, the USP for many recruitment businesses, especially those that operate in a niche. They guarded it fiercely and bragged about it in equal measure.



How ironic then that…

Who Owns The Talent Community?

Since the launch of Blogger in 1999, the ability to publish content on the Internet has become easier and easier. Savvy recruiting professionals have taken advantage of this dynamic shift to connect with prospective candidates to better meet their organization's recruiting needs. In many cases, these early adopters had to build a web presence on their own because senior leadership…
