Here are the articles that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:
Great piece on how your job ad messaging is becoming more and more important in recruiting the most qualified candidates.
Nice article on social media trends that are becoming more important from a marketing perspective. These are also great trends to keep in touch with from a recruiting standpoint especially geo-location & social magazines.
With Twitter's new follow suggestion feature, Omowale explores what you need to think about what you are trying to achieve when you follow others (as well as forming real connections.)
With so many people claiming expertise in the Social Media space, it's only the people that actually show their expertise in the area that really matter. Don't trust people that just say they are "Experts", but the ones that Show you they are experts in the space.
For recruiting, it's important to understand where you are and where you are going. This piece shows the importance of setting a course in alignment of your goals. And I'd also recommend you measure your recruiting course with recruitment metrics so you know if you might want to switch directions!
Hope you enjoy the list. If you have any articles I should add to the list feel free to add them to the comments or send me an email at email@example.com or follow us on Twitter @smashfly.
