Evaluating your Job Posting Strategy

In spite of the trend toward referrals and networking, many situations in recruiting require job ad posting. HR personnel may implement a mandatory job posting policy as part of an employee requisition system to avoid problems with employment law compliance. When you have a lot of jobs to fill in a short timeframe, such as for a seasonal workforce or a large contract IT project, posting job ads is a necessity. You have to let people know about your openings and provide some information about the job and its requirements.

Social Media is Crucial for a Successful Recruiting Strategy

By Allison Reilly Fri, Oct 19,2012 @ PM

It’s safe to say that social media has changed everything about mass communication. Not only has mass communication gone digital, but we are now connected with many more people than ever before. Social media is today’s printing press, empowering not only the general public to say what they have to say, but also businesses and recruiters. Using this modern printing press to get the word about open positions, to find great candidates, and to build your employment brand is new to everyone, yet critical to a successful recruiting strategy.

Recruiting Best Practices: How to Deal with a Long Candidate Search

By Lamees Abourahma Mon, Jun 25,2012 @ AM

There are many reasons companies outsource their recruiting to an RPO provider including finding better candidates, reducing cost and time-to-hire. However, what happens when the RPO provider is not finding that candidate for a while; in particular, when the search is taking more than 60 days? As the search lingers, most likely moral is going down and frustration is building up. Not a good situation. How should the RPO provider deal with this situation? Mike Mayuex, Founder and CEO of Novotus, proposes a solution that “amazingly seem to put everyone back on the same team again. It is human nature to look for someone at fault when things are getting bad, but it’s good business leadership to pull the team together and get them working toward a solution.”
