When it comes to recruiting, business professionals often speak in terms of “selling the job” to prospective candidates. It is true that effectively recruiting involves somewhat of a sales approach. How you put this into practice, however, depends on how you define the term “selling”.

And since TargetRecruit is built upon Salesforce, I encounter this topic more than in my past roles because Salesforce encourages developers to build on its platform. In other words, rather than building a homegrown solution from the… Continue

The number 1 reason I hear from business owners for not actively marketing on digital channels is this – I don’t know what content to create and I don’t have time to do it anyway!
I am going to take away that excuse right now. Creating content, just like all your marketing should be simple. There are 3 main types of content and my favourite is repurposed content.
Repurposed content is the existing content you are repeating or reusing. It sounds simple enough because it… Continue

About 97 percent of companies are investing in artificial intelligence and Big Data, according to New Vantage Partners' executive survey.

Several reports have already predicted how robots will take over human jobs. Is it something to be concerned about?
