Be forewarned.  I am experiencing writer’s block.  It’s so bad, I just poured myself a glass of bubbly and then proceeded to leave it in the kitchen. Which meant I had to get up, lost my train of thought once again, but brought back the bubbly. Why do I have writer’s block?  I’m totally uninspired by pop culture, current music, …

Looking at Social Schedulers Beyond Scheduling

Kate Weimer Kate Weimer, Recruitment Marketing, Social Media, Social Recruiting

This one’s for all you trying to bust into the social media recruitment marketing scene… I am what I would call a social media purist.

Do you like cheese dip? I like cheese dip. Actually, Liz loves cheese dip—specifically with jalapeños. Why? Because I don’t like boring, and neither do top-tier candidates who are looking to take their career up a few notches. They like it hot. By “hot” I mean candidates look for the following when they’re researching your company: Souped up social media accounts that are active daily …

While we still have a long ways to go, I am encouraged by what’s happening in human resources.  Over the past few years, we’ve found the courage to admit that some of our old-school HR practices are B.S.
