Mile high: join me in Denver for the Jobg8 conference!
As you may (or may not) know, I work with the folks at Jobg8 on their North American summit – specifically, to put together the speakers and agenda for the gathering. I get ideas from others in the industry (who know much more than me!), my friends at Jobg8, and my clients. The goal is to have a range of topics and speakers that really dig into the key issues in the recruitment marketing and job board world – in-depth discussions instead of generic, surface-level blather. This year...

It’s the Little Things: To Build a Great Employer Brand, Start Small
Lots of people think of employer brand as something “big.” They think that it requires huge budgets and that it is something expressed in Super Bowl commercials, at big showpiece conferences or with cool recruiting swag. But not everybody can afford to do that. And I would argue that employer brand becomes truly powerful when you see it, touch it …

Your business has a brand, whether you know it or not
Think back to when you were young, attending a new school for the first time. Your nerves are on full alert, and you’re busy trying to read the new faces – to identify who might be a future friend, and to watch out for those who might be mean or even worse. All you have to go on is what you see and hear – how these new kids behave, how they talk and dress, what they say to each other (and you). Are they quiet? Do they tell jokes? Are they punching each other? Do they have their...

Lack of awareness: why Google for Jobs works
Before a candidate can even think about finding a new job, they have to be aware that it is there. That the employer exists. That the employer is looking for someone to do something. If a candidate is completely unaware of the job or the employer, it doesn’t matter if that person is the perfect fit for the job. Without awareness, there will be no candidate action – and without that, the employer is up a creek without their proverbial paddle. So how do job seekers – passive,...

Chicken or egg?: The non-evolution of job board products
The job board industry has been around for about 25 years. In that time, it has essentially relied on two products: duration-based job ads, and access to resumes. Don’t believe me? Take a look at a random assortment of 50 job boards. I promise you that most of them will be relying on these two products (although resume offerings have dwindled since the onset of LinkedIn). Now, don’t get me wrong. There are of course other products. Indeed introduced pay-per-click advertising in the...
