Remember 15 years ago when the experts were scaring everyone with “the war for talent”? Saying by 2010 unemployment would be at historic lows? How about a little over a decade ago when job boards and applicant tracking systems would forever change a recruiters life (and make it simpler)? Or when 8 years ago when [...]
Conference season is in full swing. I am looking forward to a session I am co-facilitating tomorrow called “Social Media – The Impact to Diversity Recruiting”. It’s at the 2011 Multicultural Forum on Workplace Diversity, in Minneapolis. In building out the content and research for the topic, a lot of information has been published from [...]

The irony is… almost all claim to be the largest, the first, have the most jobs, etc. We’d expect that, right? What you might not expect is [...]
Google. What would we do without it… Remember when? Search engines have made a significant impact to Human Resources and Recruiting. As an example, the last statistic I saw was 4-5 million job related searches are conducted every day. HR and Recruiting professionals also use search engines for a variety of job related reasons including [...]
I’ve had the opportunity to explore and test a variety of SEO-based tools and theories in recruiting, and have published a series of posts on this topic with the business results after implementing.
