How to make candidates believe your employment brand

If there's one thing I've learned about employment branding in reality, it's that an employment brand alone really won't get you anywhere.

10 ways to promote your social recruiting campaign in-house

As I wrap up a social recruiting campaign with a client (and yes, links will come once it launches...tomorrow), I thought I'd write about building an in-house promotion campaign you can run to get your social recruiting campaign off the ground and running (a post I've actually never seen anyone else do before surprisingly).

Welcome to the Recruitment Content War

Recruitment Content War On #talentnet they raised the issue that since everything on Twitter is public, there's no way for a recruiter to gain any sort of competitive advantage.

It's time to take 'social recruiting' to the next level

As I was writing up a 'social media recruiting guide' for a client today, I had one of my many epiphanies:

We are finally to the point where social media can become REALLY powerful for recruitment.

Now you might be thinking, "Golly, it's been pretty powerful already hasn't it?" Yes, you just thought "Golly."

The ideal experience for the passive candidate online

Have you ever put yourself in the shoes of a passive candidate?

It’s a dreadful experience. You’re happy with your job, you enjoy your coworkers, salary and benefits. The last thing you’re thinking about is working somewhere else.

Yet in the back of your mind is that little voice telling you it’s time for change. “Hey, we’ve been doing this for 5 years now! Can we move on, already?!”

Your goal then as a recruiter is to talk to that little voice, to convince the… Continue
