Random Musings

This recruitment community is so interesting - it has become part of my daily routine. I really enjoy reading the posts of various member. Up to this point I've not really been connected to a professional community - except for the professionals at BCBSM. But I'm really glad my sm research led me here.

The New Kid on the Block

I've been researching social media for my recruitment team. Last year we implemented an ats (Taleo) and now that we have such an awesome tool I think our recruiters are ready and eager to jump into the world of recruitment technology.

I am our Taleo System Administrator so it seemed like a natural project for me to accept - with the help of my good friend and colleague.

We've been exploring tools that both of us use for personal reasons (Myspace, Facebook, Bloggings) and… Continue
