Movement by the superpowers – challenges for you?
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…

A Tale of One City – What Employers Can Learn from NYC and Amazon’s Squandered Deal
By now, almost everyone has heard that Amazon has backed out of moving one of its two new headquarters to Long Island City, NY. The reason? NYC and Amazon just couldn’t agree on things, and negotiations came to a standstill. And, while there’s much debate over who was right and who was wrong, there are a few lessons employers can take away from the situation to ensure good talent doesn’t slip away, much like Amazon slipped away from NYC.

The United States of Hipster Jobs
In the years after the global economy fell in 2008, another trend seemed to be on the rise: “hipsters,” a subculture commonly defined by its rejection of all things mainstream. Journalists would have had us believe hipsters were taking over the country one kombucha pop-up and handlebar mustache at a time — and that their presence was partly …

Multi Opening Jobs
Sometimes you need to hire multiple people at the same time for the same role – say 3 customer care representatives for a call center.

Relocation: The New Tech Hiring Strategy?
We’ve heard it many times: It’s tough to hire for tech talent. While this sector is a major employer, making up almost 10% of all US jobs, 86% of hiring managers and recruiters say it’s hard to fill these roles. To attract scarce talent, many tech companies offer increasingly unique benefits, such as on-site meals, lavish campuses and …

The term ‘job board’ is meaningless
A couple of times a year I do a guest lecture in a college class at my alma mater that focuses on creative and non-traditional careers. It’s always interesting because it puts me in direct contact with some very smart soon-to-be…

How to Wrangle Your Inbound Recruitment Marketing Channels to Attract the Right Talent
Attracting talent used to be more cut and dried than it is now. If you were looking for talent, you would put an ad in the (actually physical) paper, or you’d depend on the word of mouth of suppliers and employees to get your request out there. Then along came the Internet, and it changed absolutely everything. Suddenly, there were …

Indiana Jones and the General Data Protections Regulation
Last May, GDPR came rolling through our lives like that big ol’ boulder in Indiana Jones. Getting out of its way, avoiding it, outsmarting it? No way. That thing was coming for you! And like Indiana Jones, we who recruit in the Euro Zone have to know how to operate with the boulder looming at our backs, threatening to squish us if we step out of line.

Show, Don’t Tell: Use Experiential Interviews to Hire for Fit
If you’ve been in the hiring game for a while, this has probably happened at least once: You come across a great resume, are impressed by the candidate in person, hear them say all the right things in the interview and hire them. Only after they start work do you realize they aren’t the right fit. Experiential interviews can help …

The hybridization of job boards
First movers define categories. This is a given in marketing, and we have seen it over and over in our industry. The ‘classic’ job board is defined by Monster of the ’90s and ’00s – chock-full of job ads, interstitials,…

Top-Rated Workplaces: Best in Tech
When it comes to disruption, tech companies are the experts. In the last year, we’ve seen everything from the expansion of 3-D metal printing (which could change the face of mass production) to new alternatives for urban transportation (the explosion in electric scooter use in US cities) re engineered by tech. It turns out that companies in …

Featured Employer
As a recruiter you face a variety of challenges, from increasing your visibility with job seekers to quickly finding the right talent.

Once rare, the phenomenon of remote work has today become common and is increasingly sought after by employees.

Offer Sections
We recently added the ability to create, send and e-sign offer letters through JobScore. As we’ve been helping you add offer letter templates to JobScore we bumped into a problem. Many of your offer letters are complex documents with entire sections of text that you add and remove on a case-by-case basis. For instance, depending […] The post Offer Sections appeared first on JobScore.
