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.
Yeah yeah, I know video…Continue

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

My logic here is that every year before now, I’ve gone on ESPN and checked the predictions from the sportscasters. I have that little bit of hope that this could be the…Continue
Let's be honest, if we took a look at the technology you're using to interview even 5 years ago, I bet it would look almost the same as it does today. Maybe a new platform or two but essentially the same sh*t, different year, despite the blogging community and a ton of startups who have spent…Continue

Let’s face it. As a recruiter, you’re out there on the front lines, rolling up your sleeves to source, screen and slate the top talent on the market. You’re able to do whatever it takes to find that always elusive purple squirrel, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all…Continue
I’ll never forget how I was picked to be the social media expert at my first company. It was 2008 and I was working at a startup called VisualCV.com. I was hired as part of the sales team then moved to marketing when we realized we did in fact need a marketing team. Oh, startups.
Three phrase in every talent acquisition professionals’ vocabulary. It’s also the three areas where most HR leaders are trying to build business cases for new initiatives that will keep their company on the edge of hiring…Continue
We've talked about looking to marketing and data scientists to improve recruiting, but what about people outside of your organization like actors? Yes, I said actors. Don't make a pun about actors and jobs - there's something to it.
That's why we've talked to Second City Improv Theatre…Continue

You already know all about the intersection of recruiting and marketing. But leveraging marketing for maximum return on your recruiting results means going beyond just building an employer brand. It means making that brand – and the story behind it – compelling enough to convert passive visitors into qualified candidates.
When warm leads are coming…Continue

Everyone is talking about big data but there aren't enough people talking about how you might actually use that data for anything useful. Slap all the numbers you want in a PowerPoint deck - if it doesn't add up to more money or making your job easier, who cares?
So while the rest of the…Continue
As a marketer in a recruiters world, I clearly have a different perspective on this whole "candidate experience" thing. I'm less worried about getting people in the door and wondering how the hell you even got anyone to apply after those awful reviews. (Do you seriously have dry holiday parties? Forget it.)
The thing is, recruiters don't usually think about reviews and the candidates…Continue
