Here is our weekly feature in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing. This week’s topics include knowing your brand on Google, attracting the right candidates, social recruiting needs and those lovable candidates we meet at job fairs!
Here are the articles that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:
From a candidate standpoint, it is extremely important to understand what’s on the web about you via Google and other search engines. I personally have given interviews and taken them away due to the links that I see when Googling a candidates name. SET UP ALERTS!
Really great piece reminding us that finding the RIGHT talent is the end goal for recruiting and to do that you need to identify and engage with these candidates.
Awesome piece on Social Recruiting and what recruiters need to do to be most effective in recruiting top candidates with the rise of social networks.
Most companies are taking a look at social recruiting and implementing social media strategies. Omowale takes a look at why just doing what everyone else is doing may not bring the top talent to your doorstep.
The 5 Most Common Job Fair people you probably won’t hire by Jason Pankow (@jpankow)
If you have ever been an employer at a job fair, this post will make you laugh. It’s pretty spot on!
