You may be feeling the skill gap pressure, or you might be in the camp that believes the talent shortage is a myth. Regardless of how real you believe the talent drought is, you have, as a recruiter or staffing professional, at one point or another, found that finding the right talent can be down right impossible.
If it’s been smooth sailing, odds are the waters are…Continue

Video interviews have a direct impact on contingency and teleworking. There, I said it. They create a culture of teleworking by allowing candidates to interview from home, no matter how far their living room is from your office. 50 million Americans have jobs that enable them to …Continue

It doesn’t matter if you are conducting or participating in an interview. It doesn’t matter what position you’re interviewing for. However, whether you are the candidate or the interviewer what you wear can potentially make or break the interview. The outfit you bring to the table while speaking to your (potential) future employer not only makes a statement about your…Continue
… And you didn’t have much time to begin with. We’ve broken it down for you in this infographic: there are 24 hours in a day, doctors recommend we get 8 hours of sleep per night and the typical workday is 8 hours. That leaves 8 hours of free time. Unfortunately for most of the working population, we spend more than the 8 hours at work, get less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep and feel like 24 hours just isn’t enough. For corporate professionals, there are numerous…Continue

While video interviewing saves more than time, money, and effort, hiring managers may balk at having to change their routine. What…Continue
The perfect interview… a dream come true. For a recruiter or hiring manager there is almost no better feeling than a perfect interview with a dream candidate.

Have you ever applied to a company only to find a communication barrier on the recruiting end? Or, in the very least, tried to look at a company career page and find it hard to navigate? That would be an example of poor employer branding. A company who is candid with candidates about their company and the application process is more likely to have happy employees. Truth is,…Continue
Video interviewing does more for your company than reducing costs. While it is a great alternative to traditional interviewing, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the qualities of the face-to-face experience. Rather, it transitions it to eye-to-eye. The camera focuses on a candidate’s (and the interviewer’s) face and gives insight into whether there is interest in the position. With…Continue

Let’s get something straight right away, “selling the company” isn’t something that an organization does just to attract candidates. Selling the company fortifies the employer brand, creates fans and customers and tells the company culture story. In this respect, hiring managers are doing a lot more than just hiring, but they might not be aware…Continue
