Recruiter Challenge: Luring Quality Candidates to More Affordable Cities
Recruiters beware! In a recent survey conducted by Nexxt, 63% of job seekers said that they would rather earn less but live in a smaller, more affordable city. But don’t think that you’re getting off so easy, salary is still the first thing they consider when accepting a new job.

SALARY SPOTLIGHT: Which Jobs Pay Over $100,000?
Money is a sensitive subject. Many of us are taught from an early age that it’s impolite to talk about it, while in the workplace, negotiating a salary is also a delicate matter.

Innovation and recruitment marketing
At the TAtech conference in Denver, I had a brief conversation with Joel Cheesman about innovation. He challenged me to come up with any job boards or companies in recruitment marketing that were ‘innovative’. I fumbled for an answer (as is typical for me), and then we were interrupted. But afterwards, I kept thinking about it. What companies really are innovative? Indeed? Google? StackOverflow? More importantly, how do we define innovation – or, as the VCs like to say, ‘disruption’? Think...

Publish and Unpublish Jobs
When we updated Job Statuses we removed the ability to publish and unpublish jobs. Unpublished jobs could be OPEN, and candidates could apply, but they were not shown on your careers site – so candidates cannot easily find them.

Things have been lively in our industry over the past few weeks – news from DHI, StackOverflow, LinkedIn, and more – and not always good news at that.

Monopolies lumber into recruitment marketing
Ever since I read ‘A Serf on Google’s Farm‘, I’ve wanted to (a) draw it to your attention (read it!!), and (b) talk about the impact that the Facebook and Google monopolies have on our industry.

Basically, Josh Marshall discusses what it’s like as a digital publisher (which, in essence, almost all job boards are) to work under the Google monopoly. Where does Google touch his business?

The Leaders of Leadership: Companies with the Best Management in 2017
When you think about what makes a company appealing to prospective employees, you might point to benefit packages, salary ranges, workplace perks and company culture.

Pick a strategy path: sourcing or advertising
Sometimes it’s useful to step back and generalize a little. I believe the appropriate cliche is ‘you can’t see the forest for the trees‘. Whatever. Let’s just say that if you don’t have a good guiding principle for what your business is about, you may end up flailing around (witness Monster during the endless years before its acquisition by Randstad). Most companies in our industry specialize in either advertising or sourcing. Now, before you start correcting...
