Today’s ‘new’ becomes tomorrow’s ‘wallpaper’
Remember a few years back, when social media recruiting was all the rage? It was going to change the face of recruiting. Revolutionize how recruiting was done. Make old methods of recruiting obsolete. Social media recruiting was the hot new thing. And then, it wasn’t. It had become ‘wallpaper’ – just part of the recruiting landscape. I’m not saying that social media recruiting isn’t used – or useful. But after its turn in the spotlight, it simply settled...

Best of the Best: The Top-Rated Workplaces in 2018

Have No Fear, the Robot Revolution is NOT Here
We’ve seen it in I, Robot, Ex Machina and RoboCop; the formidable takeover of the human race by machines, or more specifically, artificial intelligence (AI). But is the threat of the robo-revolution real or is it just our 21st century anxiety getting the better of us? Well, it depends what industry you’re in, but when it comes to customer service, we need to pump the breaks – it’s not all doom and gloom.

Small Is Beautiful: 4 Ways to Build Your Employer Brand Without Breaking the Bank
These days, the term “employer branding” gets bandied about a lot. But what does it mean?

Finding candidates through advertising: it’s still relevant, folks
Job boards – both traditional and non-traditional – have historically had one primary purpose in life: to bring candidates and employers together. For the traditional boards, that meant advertising – lots of it. Think Monster’s Superbowl ads – or (more currently) Indeed’s omnipresent ads on radio. Those ads did several things: they made candidates aware of the site; they drove traffic to the site; and they helped differentiate the site from all the other...

The workplace climate is rapidly changing. Baby boomers are staying in their jobs longer while more millennials are entering the workforce each day.

Don’t let top performers slip through your fingers by missing the mark in your job postings! The...

Will Google Penalize Your Career Site?
Making your career site mobile-friendly is no longer an option.

This coming change will have a “significant impact” on mobile search results worldwide for mobile users. This includes your candidates who are searching for job opportunities on-the-go. The goal is to help users like them find relevant, high quality search results that are...

Why Your Candidates are Standing You Up
We’ve all been there. It’s 3:05 and your 3pm interview hasn’t arrived yet. You’re likely getting caught up on some things while you wait but the same thoughts cross your mind: “Maybe they’re stuck in traffic,” “maybe they had an emergency,” or “maybe they’ll just be a no show.” Often this doesn’t make sense, especially when the candidate seemed so enthusiastic on the phone or over email. Then the email comes, and it usually begins with an “Unfortunately.” Or maybe...

Why The Best Candidates Care About Company Culture
According to Personnel Psychology, top performers are 400 percent more productive than average performers. If your company wants to recruit and hire top performers, understand what they want and need most from their employers. Fortunately, the answer isn’t just a generous paycheck. Because top performers often know their worth and potential, they are more selective about where they work. When searching for jobs, the best candidates will prioritize finding a work environment that allows them...
