Unless you have been hiding under a stone for the last few days, or off-line recovering from the festivals at Glastonbury and Hard Rock Calling, you will have heard of the BeKnown Facebook application launched by Monster, simultaneously in 35 countries.

Employee Branded: Employees As Fans – #TruLeeds

I’ve always been puzzled as to why so much non-confidential employee communication goes on behind closed doors. I really like Rypple as a feedback tool for internal comms, and platforms like yammer provide a much more social and interactive intranet, but how much of the communication that goes on here is confidential, and how much […]

Guest Post: Wayne Barclay: Recruiters in the clouds. #truLeeds

A simple question to start your thinking: “What are the opportunities and threats to recruiters when working in the Cloud?” I was always taught “Recruitment isn’t a difficult process” and in its simplest terms it’s not. If you’re an agency recruiter: Find Job> Find candidates for jobs> Sell candidates into client> Client interviews (normally more […]

The Cost Of Engagement #truleeds

I’m going to be leading a track at #truLeeds next Thursday entitled “cost of engagement.” I’ve been thinking about this quite a lot recently in the work I have been doing with recruiting teams.This is really a follow on to the post #SocialRecruiting: It’s not for recruiters, that created plenty of reaction. The big difficulty for recruiters […]

#TruLeeds – tracks and trackleaders – 23’rd – 24’th June

Once again I’m overwhelmed by the quality of track leaders who have bought tickets and put themselves forward to host conversations. If […]

Great branding with YouTube channels, FaceBook and the timert.me app

I’m always on the lookout for cool, simple apps to share that I think can be used to enhance branding and recruiting. While reading the Facebook stream, I came across Timert, which is really simple to install and use.  Timert enables you to automatically post new video content from your YouTube channel on to your […]

Bored of “that london”, James Swift, Director and founder of North West digital agency Beyond Interactive has been one of the driving forces behind bringing #tru to the north of England. A long time friend of the event, James was one of the first to shout loud “don’t forget us!”. I’m glad we didn’t. James […]

Lets Make Movies! A #HardRock Story!

I was checking in on some of my usual fan pages.just looking at the content that makes a real community, rather than a notice board, when I came across this video short promoting a whole new low-budget movie that is in production. so low in fact,the budget was £0! The movie is called “What would […]

Inside The Sourcers Brain

If you could pop the hood of the cranium of some of the best sourcers, and look inside to see just how their brain is wired, I think there might be a few surprises.   Technical aptitude, fluency in geek speak, programming etc are going to be there in abundance but it is all only part of […]
