I'm a veteran of the online recruitment industry. In 2012 I sold my first company AllCountyJobs.com, and now I spend my time as a recruitment marketing consultant to job boards, HR tech startups and employers who need help with digital recruiting.
My colleagues call me the "Mad Scientist of Online Recruiting" because I'm always experimenting with new tech. It's a badge I wear with pride.
Please check out my podcast called "RecTech" which will teach you about how technology can help you recruit.

I spoke to the head of Talent at Johnson & Johnson recently who told me one of the easiest things employers can do to improve their candidate experience is to rewrite your communication templates within your ATS. Especially your REJECTION templates, to sound less dreadful so that candidates don't head to Glassdoor and rant about you not hiring them.…Continue
