Recruitment Marketing Articles of the Week 1.8.11 to 1.14.11

Here is our last recruitment marketing articles feature of 2010 in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing. This week we’ll be talking about how using social media wrong can be a good thing, making the most of an opportunity, remaining proactive, survey on employment in cities and making your top candidates feel wanted.

 

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

 

You’re Using Social Media Wrong by Lance Haun (@thelance)

Great article on how making mistakes in social media is the best way to truly understand and leverage it.  Totally agree with Lance!  (NOTE: While this was a post from last week, I found it over the weekend and therefore I’ve counted it for this week.)

Simple but effective take on taking advantage of opportunities whenever they may come.  And I’m always a sucker for a funny cartoon, which Benjamin includes at the top!
