My Mom used to hang up on the military recruiters when they would call. I still remember the way the recruiter on the other end of the line would stammer when my mother would say "This is Lt Colonel Deborah Richardson, US Army, and you will not be calling my house again.

Big data is a big deal and understanding what it means should come without a 100 page disclaimer and a masters course in statistics. But our HR teams aren't typically constructed with the statistical chops to understand the sum and influence of those numbers on each other. Which makes sense…Continue

Now, this is the first time I’ve ever been called a faggot. Typing that f-word twice actually makes me feel really uncomfortable. I don’t think it’s an ok word to use. In fact, I can’t think of a single instance in which using it is ok. I googled just to…Continue

PPC, or pay per click, is a strategy many marketers use to buy keyword based traffic to their websites. In fact, many companies from startup to Fortune 50 spend millions of their advertising budgets on "owning" certain keywords each year. So why wouldn't you try PPC for recruitment marketing? The…Continue
Instagram has a new API. Now, I'm confident that most people in the recruiting industry go "oh, ok" and move on because it just doesn't really matter to their recruiting and employee engagement efforts.
This API is an indicator that maybe we should start paying attention to how…Continue
I read a post on RecruitingBlogs this morning that said you get the most views on a Facebook job ad. I'm calling BS in my first ever video blog post.

You're a jerk, ya know. This is the e-mail you send me, really? I honestly don't even know how you got my contact information or why in the world your CMS thought I might be interested in being a "supply executive."
You already know that the way candidates look for a job is changing – now, most candidates are likely to look you up and research your company before they ever express interest directly to employers. Since the job search process happens completely online, this means failing to deliver an…Continue

This is definitely embarrassing to admit but I learned how to ride a bike pretty late in life. By late, I mean I learned on an adult bike when I was about 12 because someone pushed me down a hill. Hold your giggles, please.
I’ll never forget the exhilaration of realizing “hey! I’m riding…Continue

Call them purple squirrels or whatever you want, but finding candidates isn’t so easy. Your job is to find those (fill in whatever animal and color you want here), and to find them before they’re talking to someone else about another opportunity. But without the right skills, the hunt takes…Continue

Here’s the math: 4 days x 8 hours a day = 32 hour workweek.
No catch, no secret “well we work 10 hour days 4 days a week,” but a real live shortened work week. I can almost hear the nervous thoughts and I can confess,…Continue
