Live Hard, Sell Hard: When Phone Screenings Go Wrong

Some months ago, I was phone screened for a Senior Recruiter role with a Fortune 500 retail company. During the phone screening, which lasted 75 minutes, I talked for roughly 10-12 minutes. Instead of digging deeper into the responsibilities of the role I applied for, the Recruiter spent most of our shared time selling me on why I…

5 Ways Social Recruiting Can Impact Your Brand:

Recruiting as an industry is notoriously behind the times when it comes to leveraging social media for their business.

Social Network Engagement - Really? Vast majority are not really in love with your brand...

Makes a lot of sense and this should apply to Social Recruiting as well. People don't join groups or pages to be part of some Brand community that they love (CEO's love to believe that), its more for deals and discounts or in Recruiting (some real info about jobs and careers).
