A zombie career site will not get applications. However, if you can redesign your site and focus it on hitting your target candidate, you will see more qualified applications than ever before.
Recruiting is a sport. Companies who are in the “top echelon league” (Google, Facebook, Disney, etc.), with tremendous social following and national notoriety, have very successful social media recruiting strategies to find great talent.
Talent acquisition conferences always seem to have a topic or two that sometimes overtakes the conference. Remember the numerous sessions on the power of the internet, employment branding, and social media recruiting?
Twitter is a very interesting social media tool. Every second, there are 6,000 tweets. That means there is 500 million per day and 200 billion a year!
Last week, the TATech Conference hosted at the Palms Resort Las Vegas was packed with talent acquisition leaders, TA technology providers, and global employment branding agencies.
Last month, we talked about job titles and how they really can make an impact to get the more passive candidate to click and take a look at what you have to offer...
In our annual survey of job seekers, the number one complaint is that after applying to jobs, they never hear a peep from the employer on their status except an automated email. This certainly is not breaking news.
I have always told job seekers that if you can find a hiring manager at a company you want to work for who is active on Twitter, you hit a homerun.
We just released the 2016 Central Florida Employment Survey. This year we talked to 139 companies about current and future needs, challenges in hiring, social media hiring and cost per hire. All the results can be downloaded with this link.
We spoke to over 130 Central Florida talent acquisition and human resource managers and asked them what keeps them up at night when it comes to hiring. We compiled the top 10 since misery loves company.
So much has changed in the job board world in the last three years. In the last “War for Talent” during 2005-2008, Monster and Career Builder were running thirty second Super Bowl commercials costing millions.
The old adage goes, ‘money doesn’t buy happiness’—but does it buy your employee’s happiness?
Back in the old days when you needed a great employee you would call your local newspaper, pay anywhere from $350.00-$1,200.00 to run a classified ad in the employment section.
The total number of jobs in Central Florida’s Professional and Business Services sector has hit a record milestone, and the forecast for all sectors through the rest of 2016 is for strong, continued growth, according to a report out today from OrlandoJobs.com.
Each year it seems like the Central Florida human resource community comes up with ways to keep making their jobs even harder. You are already asked to deal with budgets, technology, insurance, compliance, benefits, hiring, firing and organizing company events. Add stay interviews to the list. ...
According to from Bersin by Deloitte, US companies are spending an average of $4,000 in cost per hire in 2015. That is expensive especially when your hire doesn’t work out. It may be time to consider doing some blind interviewing.
In 2015 I spoke with over 5,000 job seekers at career events at colleges, career expos and in my own offices. One thing for sure, they have a lot of ideas on how their job search experience can be improved. I asked many of them to tell me what frustrates them the most when looking for a job and...
If all companies and recruiters had one wish it would be to make all job seekers and job curious use only one exclusive job board when seeking employment. It used to be that way in the Sunday Newspaper classifieds before the internet. If your jobs were not in the Sunday paper, you would not ge...
The recession was pretty brutal to the live job fair industry. Employers had no reason to attend simply because they had too many resumes coming in for the few jobs they had open. Many of the job fairs during this time featured few jobs (many jobs being 100% commission) and lots of education re...
