The top 20 Recruitment Myths & Why they are all untrue by Andy Headworth (@andyheadworth)
Whether you agree with them all or not, this is a great conversation starter with compelling arguments on recruiting myths that need to be explored.
The Candidate Experience, and other stuff HR wastes time on by Tim Sackett (@timsackett)
Some great points by Tim on Candidate Experience and how making your organization a great place to work first is the most important.
Five Reasons your company doesn’t need a social media policy by Michael Hyatt (@michaelhyatt)
When you are thinking about implementing a social recruiting initiative, it’s important to trust your employees to make good decisions with it. I really like reasons 1 & 4.
Really liked this post by Charlie but it doesn’t get really good until you get to the bullets. Loved this one: “You pull rank based on tenure and tenure only or you reference your age as a badge of honor.”
For those looking to do social recruiting, here is a helpful list to get you started in tracking and measuring success in your social campaigns. Recruiting metrics are important.
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 send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter @smashfly.
