What’s in a deal?: recruitment marketing companies buy and sell
For the past couple of years, I’ve been keeping a list of job board and recruitment marketing industry ‘transactions’ – in other words, when companies have been bought, sold, or merged. (And in case you’re wondering, I’ve counted 5 since the beginning of 2018). I started doing this because I was curious as to how often these things happened, and what the financial impact was. I limited myself to those transactions that were publicly reported in some form or...

The Lasting Effects of Ghosting Candidates
Intentional or not, it’s becoming common practice for employers to “ghost” candidates. Ghosting is when someone, in this case an employer, seemingly disappears without warning -- ignoring any further calls or emails.

And much like ghosting a date, ghosting a candidate can have lasting negative effects.

Google sticks its foot in the recruitment marketing industry
Note: The Doctor is recovering from a bout with the flu – so this week we revisit the most popular post from 2017. Enjoy! Remember Google Base? Joel Cheesman does. “The company launched Google Base in the mid-2000s to much fanfare.” And…it never went anywhere. Then last year Google announced that they were working with CareerBuilder, Jibe, and Dice on a Jobs API. That project is now closed (CareerBuilder is reporting on it at the upcoming Jobg8 conference), but from what...

Retention tension: is work forever or is it a gig?
If you read much recruiting and HR press (like I do), you inevitably run into something odd: do employers actually care about retention, or not? On the one hand, there are tons of articles extolling the gig economy (maybe it will be 50% of the labor force by 2020, maybe more?). In this brave new world, employees are disposable and eminently replaceable, switches that you can turn off and on with the flip of a recruiting switch. On the other hand, in many articles, employees are the foundation...
