Last year, I wrote about how recruiting had finally reached the tipping point: forcing recruiters to treat candidates more like customers and get more creative to find and engage new talent through social media and text messaging. With the power to switch jobs more frequently, preemptively reject companies, and negotiate, or even turn down signed offers in lieu of better …

A few weeks ago in the airport bathroom, I overheard a conference call taking place in the stall next to me. Cringe. I hate that. Are you so important that you have to pee during the call?

Do you excuse typos in a LinkedIn profile? Maybe not. Especially …

Earlier this month, I joined hundreds of talent acquisition pros in downtown San Francisco for Jobvite’s annual Recruiter Nation Live event (full disclosure: I’m employed by Jobvite). In addition to exchanging some new stories, the best recruiting practices, and winning strategies with our peers, I also had the great pleasure of speaking on-stage with the incredible Molly Bloom.

Okay, for those who are under the age of like 25 I probably need to first do some explaining! What the heck is Snapchat and what the heck is a Bitmoji!?

Sourcing is one of those skill sets that you continue to use even after you leave recruiting–and just as relevant if your new job, like mine, involves generating marketing-qualified leads. I’ve used dozens of Chrome extensions, CRM and ATS plug-ins, and I’ve experimented with pretty much every social network or search engine over the past decade or so. At the …

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. When it comes to posting on social media, I always prefer to do it natively, meaning within each separate social media that I’m posting on. This preference is a mixture of the way I was “raised” …
