If a…Continue

We take it too personally when hear that our job application is rejected. Especially if it is the position we really wanted or spent hours on writing the essay and filling out the forms. All in all, we are people and it is hard not to take it to heart - what if it’s our qualification or skill set that matter?…Continue

We contacted Suzanne Lucas, also known as the Evil HR Lady, and asked if we could interview her about the topic of technology in the HR world. She agreed, and during the very first question, we mentioned that we didn’t know if she’d have an opinion on this matter.…Continue
Recruitment process sustainability is becoming a key focus for many companies, but this topic has only started to take hold in the last few months.

There are instances when recruiters read CV outside working hours. They may have a pile of CVs from which they have to select the best interviewees.

The goal here is not to rehash the fact that you need a mobile friendly careers page. If this is news to…Continue
