Here are the articles our that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:


Please respond with “Macho Man Randy Savage” in the Subject Line by Rachel Kaufman (@rkaufman)

Here’s a great job ad that doesn’t suck and a recruiting organization that uses a job ad as a filtering mechanism.

Nice real-world example of how a candidate used engagement through social media to get his dream internship.

Comprehensive post on social media and learning how to monitor, respond and ultimately learn from your relationships on these channels.  Great for companies starting a social recruiting strategy!

Nice read for anyone creating copy for job ads or blog posts.


Employment Branding MBA: Why Nobody Cares Whether YOU like your Alm... by Kris Dunn (@Kris_Dunn)

Great post on being able to focus on a targeted group with your employment branding.  A brand doesn’t have to be all inclusive but should target the groups you want to recruit.

Those Maryland Uniforms were just ugly. Although they have like a dozen combinations to work with so they might get it right as the season goes on. Good stuff as always Chris w/. the recap....have a great weekend.

Haha, they were pretty ugly.  Definitely pushing the envelope with those uniforms and I hope that they do get it right.  But I think overall it's definitely a good thing for the university and Under Armour to have a uniform style playground. 


Getting lots of attention from it.  And I'm sure recruits are paying attention.

I suppose you are right there. I think the Under Armour founder is alumni right? Loved Rachel's article and hope folks check it out. Kinda cool to see a fresh take on things.
