the word about a job you are trying to fill.
Monster has always been best for me for creative types of people, but retail and fashion is kind of tight lipped world and the best folks don't post their resumes. They don't want their business on the street.
Just my personal experience…
etc it could be something they run with. An accountant in Oil & Gas? Hmmm, I'm not so sure.
I wasn't taking it too seriously really. It's a good way to pass an hour though if you have a spare one lying around. Consider it as more of a Fun Friday post :-)…
Most small and medium businesses would have trouble generating any interest in their website or talent community. They don't have the time or resources to create gimmicks or have creative staff to constantly self promote. What attracts HR folks is not the same that brings in engineers, finance, electricians..so one size doesn't fit all.…

w professional respect and courtesy. A handwritten note on quality paper can make an impressive impact, and stands out among a sea of free form-email thank yous.
As an fyi, my recruiting focus is on high level marketing searches and in over 16+ years of recruiting in this space I've never heard anything negative regarding a handwritten thank you note. If anything, I think it's even more appreciated by marketing folks, who tend to be more creative and look for ways to stand out of the crowd.
Just my two cents....…
of doing this is with video. I began having my team share use these video in follow up to conversations with candidates and the response has been amazing. Folks are so much more engaged and interested in working for us by getting a sense of our culture and mission.
The link is an example of an older one we used, but powerful nonetheless.
Any other RBC members using video in this capacity? Love to hear how others are using creative content.
Thanks Sean for sharing.…
