Are You Listening To Your Exiting Workforce?

I am always intrigued to learn why organizations aren't adopting and embracing the power of analytics. Even more interesting is the amount of companies that are not capturing critical data from their employee population. Why is that? Don't have the time? Don't have the resources? Don't have the funding? Don't care?

As important as capturing the many voices within your organization is…

Recruit Through Blogging

Six months ago, we discussed the utilization of company blogs for recruiting. What surprises me is the hesitance that some organizations still have to jump on the band wagon. Those slow to adapt certainly bring up valid

points, such as the potential negative impact, employee selection,

and/or maintaining some sense of control. However, isn't the whole

point to allow freedom of speech? To gain true…

New Year's Resolutions

We all set them. And most of the time, fail miserably. That's because we focus on the grandiose versus aiming for the realistic. When you think about what 2008 will bring for your organization, you must

keep in mind what is reasonably obtainable, and at the same time,

challenging. Now is the time to develop a solid business plan. As a

Recruiter or HR Executive, are you setting yourself up to succeed or

fail? Are your objectives designed to meet the business and HR…

Allowing Metrics to Drive Your HR Function

The Hudson Employment IndexSM fell 8.9 points in November to a record low of 91.9. What triggered the decline? Growing concerns about hiring and signs of personal financial

strain. One year ago, the Index registered 13 points above the current reading at 105.3. Another history maker of the Hudson Employment Index

- the fewest workers expect job growth. The number of workers

2008 - Are You Prepared?

Here at Hodes, we are exposed to numbers on a daily basis. Some are staggering. However, the reality is most companies are not as prepared as they think are. Especially with 2008

around the corner. So, how should you prepare?

First, take a look at your inner workings - business drivers, HR

drivers, challenges and employee population. Second, measure…

Learn How Your Blog Spot Can Receive Free Advertising through

Do you want to attract more visitors to your career site but don’t have the budget for a big advertising or public relations campaign? No problem.

One of the most efficient and effective ways to attract highly targeted visitors to any web site is by increasing the number of visitors who find you in the organic (free) results of search engines such as Google and Yahoo. But how do you increase the number of those visitors? Make your web site come up higher in the results so more of your targeted visitors will see your site and click through. Two of the best ways of making your site come up higher in the search results are to add more content to your site and to increase the number of links to your site.

The Recruiting Blogswap at can help your career site come up higher in the search engine results because you can use it to increase the amount of content on your site and the number of links to your site. The Recruiting Blogswap is a FREE service of job board but used by a wide variety of career sites. Some of the career sites want to attract candidates with years of experience, with certain skills, or from certain geographic areas. Other career sites which participate want to attract human resource professionals, hiring managers, or others on the employer side of the desk. But all of them use the Recruiting Blogswap to increase the number of targeted visitors to their site and they don’t pay a dime to do so.

If you have career-related articles, then sign up with the Recruiting Blogswap as an author. Your articles will automatically include a byline that will tell the readers about your organization and will link to your web site. Those articles will run on recruiting blogs which have signed up to publish articles written by you and other authors. When your articles run on those other sites, they will link to your site and that link will be in close proximity to the description of your organization in your byline. Google and the other search engines will infer from the proximity of the link to those keywords that your site is a good source for those who are searching for that information so your site will be moved up in the search engine results when people search on those keywords.

If you want to add more content to your site, then sign up with the Recruiting Blogswap as a publisher. You’ll receive articles from authors and may publish them on your site. If you choose not to, then the articles that you’re sent will be re-assigned to the next publisher in line. You’re never under an obligation to publish an article so you don’t have to worry about being asked to run an article that will be of no interest to your visitors. And by adding more articles to your site, when Google, Yahoo, and the other search engines find those articles, they’ll include them in their search results and will direct your most desired visitors to your site when they search for that type of content. Also, when you add more pages to your site, the search engines rank all of your pages higher as sites with more pages tend to be more likely to have the information being searched for.

Sound good? I thought so. What’s the catch? None. All of the participants get something of value. The authors get links back to their sites from the web sites of the publishers so the web sites of the authors appear higher in the search engine results. The publishers get more pages so their web sites appear higher in the search engines results. gets a very short blurb in each article and archives a copy of each article on our site so our site appears higher in the search engine results.

Want to sign up as an author, publisher, or both? Great. Go to and get started today.

Please let me know if I may be of any additional assistance. I am here to help.

After I've known you for awhile, I might let you in on that secret. To start off with though you can't say stuff like "Thanks for the invite." or, God forbid, "How can I help?".

Whatever do you do on your other social networking sites. I go to people's pages, look at their pictures and make quips about them on the chatter walls. (And get big bucks for doing so).

Psst! Tell Givertz to get out of here though. I don't know if I want to be in the same group as him.
