This week’s topics include 5 things recruiters need to stop doing, fundamental shifts in our workplaces, on whether a boost in spending could fuel jobs, Facebook Places launch and Twifficiency.
Here are the articles that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:
Great piece with some helpful tips on improving your recruiting. I particularly agree with “Working Outside Your ATS” section.
Nice article on important shifts happening in our workplaces. I think the “Dilbert Paradox” is particularly important because you not only have to get the right people on the bus but you need to provide them with the training to succeed.
Companies are boosting their spending: Could jobs be next? by Paul Davidson (@USAToday)
Encouraging article on how trends in company spending increases may signal hiring growth.
The big news this week is the launch of Facebook Places which is said to be a Foursquare (not to mention Godwalla) killer. Here’s a guide to using Places as well as a curious choice by Facebook on their logo (FourSquare shout-out anyone?)

If you hang out on Twitter, you must have seen plenty of Twifficiency posts in your feed. Here’s the story behind a simple idea that turned into a short-lived social media sensation.
