Programmatic gets some respect
Programmatic ads have been around for a while in the consumer space. If you’ve been in a deep dark cave for the past 5 years (and if that’s the case, why are you reading this post?), a quick definition: programmatic simply means using software – aka algorithms – to buy advertising. In other words, machines buying ads. As with much else, computers can buy ads more quickly and efficiently than humans can – but they are limited by what their algorithms tell them to do,...

The Cover Letter Comeback: Using Disruptive Cover Letters to Find Hidden Talent
These days, finding the right candidate for an open job can feel next to impossible, especially when your hiring managers are asking for “purple squirrels” — aka impossible sets of candidate criteria.  Do you ever feel like you’re being asked to find a bilingual brain surgeon who will work for  $10/hour?

The Game Within the Game: How to Select the Best HR Technology
Do me a favor. Stop for a moment and think, “How does HR learn how to do HR?” Or more specifically, how does the average HR practitioner figure out which software to purchase? Outside of bad experiences and urban lore, it’s not like we learn how to select HR technology in college. Family is no help; they barely understand what …

Diversity and growth: what I saw and heard in Denver
It’s interesting how 90 degrees feels even hotter when you’re 5,280 feet above sea level – at least that was my conclusion after spending a few days in Denver last month! The occasion was Jobg8’s 2019 Job Board Summit, and the consensus seemed to be that both the speakers and the food were great. And (perhaps in honor of Chad Sowash’s attendance) Jobg8 included a can of Colorado beer in each attendee bag – that was a first! A few of the sessions really stood...

Note: The Doctor is in Denver at the Jobg8 Summit, so here is a post from earlier this year. Enjoy! Let’s face it – most of us in the industry are NOT LinkedIn, Google, Facebook, or Indeed. We just aren’t. Perhaps we’re on the road to getting much bigger (looking at you, ZipRecruiter) or perhaps we hope we’ll be acquired by one of the big guys.

LinkedIn’s cautious but steady experimentation
When you’re a huge business like LinkedIn, part of an even bigger business – Microsoft, and as much a part of most recruiters’ days as Facebook is for the masses, you really have to work on experimenting. Why? Because every layer of middle management, every eagle-eyed Head of Accounting, every outside stock adviser is pushing you to play it safe. With a revenue of $5.3 billion in FY 2018, you are pushed to grow the revenue but don’t do anything stupid – as in, don’t...
