Online Recruiting and Job Pollution 4 Comments

I had the opportunity to present at the Minnesota Recruiters Conference last week on Online Recruiting.  A big thanks to the co-founder of the group, Paul DeBettignies, for another great event.

I focused on this topic as a follow-up to an article I wrote a few weeks ago called “Job Seekers Beware“.  These are a few examples to consider as a result of that artcile.

The slides are included below – via SlideShare.  Please contact me if you are interested in learning more about the session.

Some additional context on the session when viewing the slides:

  • The main focus of the session was on “owning” your own content, and controlling the candidate experience.
  • The inference to the examples used again was on partnering with these organizations to stop the job pollution that’s taking place – primarily the sites that are using your content without your knowledge.
  • Put YOUR strategy together based on your organizations needs.  As a specific example, during the session we looked at twitter as a recruiting tool, and the pollution taking place with thousands of jobs channels.  It’s not that an organization shouldn’t consider – or use twitter (or social recruiting for that matter) – it’s about finding out who has your content, where candidates are being driven to, and the results.
  • It’s also about outsourcing what makes sense.  Do you want to manage your organizations twitter channel and followers – or does it make sense to leverage the established job boards already in place? The answer is different for everyone, but again, you need to own the content and clearly know the candidates path to completion – on all sites.
