Here is our weekly feature in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing, social recruiting and anything else in the recruiting space. In this article, we’ll be talking about talent communities, promoting within, source of hire, thoughts on HR Tech and Google semantic search.
I’d also like to remind any recruiters reading this, the deadline to submit an application for the Candidate Experience Awards is May 1st. You can find more information here.
Now onto the articles! Here are the articles our that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:
Talent Communities, Talent Networks and Stack Overflow Reviewed by Bill Boorman (@BillBoorman)
Great article on the site Stack Overflow, why it is so effective at creating a vibrant community of programmers and how you should use it as a blueprint if you decide to build a Talent Community. It’s about common interest not jobs.
Steve looks at the merits of promoting from within vs. hiring externally for open job positions.
Interesting look into quality of hire and the sources that produce the best hires for a particular organization. The process is something most companies should implement.
Good post on the implications of Google’s foray in semantic search on recruiting organizations.
Hope you enjoy the list. If you have any articles I should add to the list feel free to add them to the comments or follow us on Twitter @smashfly.
