Stop Underutilizing Twitter

Despite being one of the easiest to use and most engaging social media tools, many companies seem focused on gaining the least amount of value from Twitter. So, what can you do to better utilize this amazing tool for social recruiting?

Create Goodwill

Remember that hard to value intangible asset on your balance sheet that is not directly attributable to assets or liabilities, but can increase the purchase price of your company in acquisition….goodwill. In…

Is it time to Redesign your Recruitment Marketing Strategy?

Originally posted on SmashFly's Recruitment Marketing Blog.

I’ve been reading Inbound Marketing by Dharmesh Shah and Brian Halligan (of Hubspot fame), and am currently reading their thoughts on when a Website Redesign is needed. They make 3 points that I think…

Converting Leads to Hires w/Social

I've been busy lately. As a result, the paying gig (workin' for the man) takes top priority. But that doesn't mean that I still don't get to do some cool things from time to time. Recently in… Continue

Are You Measuring Social Recruiting?

What are you doing to measure your social recruiting efforts? Because if you aren't doing anything to measure them and you're telling the world that social recruiting works then you're just winging it. Or if you aren't putting any effort in place to try and account for your efforts while squaking to your peers and colleagues that it doesn't work - well, you're equally as… Continue

Job boards as economic indicators

As I was sorting through the usual spate of ‘job boards are dead’ articles, I noticed other more interesting types of articles: pieces that point to job board postings as indicators of the state of the economy. (Monster has published their Employment Index since 2004.)

Makes sense, doesn’t it? If job boards are posting more… Continue

Blind dates and retention metrics

Recruiting and matchmaking - not entirely the same, but not so different either.

A friend is single, yet can't manage to find a guy/girl because work/school/life is too hectic - just like the customer who has a vacancy yet can't seem to find the right candidate on their own. You get to work thinking about who you know that would be interested and has a personality that will mesh with your single pal - sounds like sourcing a qualified candidate to me. You set up some sort of meeting,… Continue

Measurement and the Art of Recruiting

Dear Claudia,

Why do some managers insist on measuring everything in the recruiting process? I think that metrics can be demoralizing and can affect a person's way of doing things, sometimes making them less effective. If I know that I can get better results by following my gut instinct, I will do so. Perhaps I will make fewer calls than my cubicle-mate. Should I skew the results by following a prototype of the ideal search? Or should I do what is right?

Tilting at a favorite windmill, again.....Assessment

Anyone who has read my posts and comments over the years or who works closely with me knows that I have a few pet ideas outside of my direct domains of recruiting software and yacht racing.

One of those pet ideas revolves around assessment, both pre-hire and post-hire.

The idea is stone simple, but it meets lots of resistance: in many cases, it’s a waste of time to assess individual performance with the usual success metrics.

Not all the time of course-… Continue

Part 1: Why Online? -Basic South African Internet Statistics

The South African online population is typically behind other first world countries such as the United States, or the United Kingdom in terms of internet usage. This is due to a number of factors including legislation, high pricing structures and education amongst others.

That said, the population of users who are online in South Africa has grown by just over 13% from 3.5 million in 2007 to 5.1 million in 2008.

With a population of just over 44,3 million, that represents a… Continue

Measuring the value of blogging and social networking

Steven De Poortere is talking about interesting stuff on his ERE blog today, where he explores the possibility of measuring the success of blogging. Interesting concept, as blogging (and social networking for that matter) can be really time intensive for the average recruiter. So what is the ROI for those activities? Visibility, certainly. But how do you measure the… Continue
