I’m in the #DiceLiveLounge at #SHRM12. My friend John Sumser is holding court, with Tom Silver, from our hosts @employersondice. John is asking about the changing role of job boards, and the job market in general. It’s inspiring to hear Tom speaking about what their technical candidates and employers want from Dice. it is a […]

#SHRM12 Opening Keynote: Condoleezza Rice: tapping human potential #SHRM12 #DICE

I’m at #SHRM12 Atlanta along with 15000 other people crammed in to a huge auditorium,. I’m blooging live from the #DICELOUNGE with a gang of bloggers.. It looks more like a rock concert the logistics have been fantastic, with over 700 volunteers making sure all the guests are looked after. Rice opens by talking about […]

Engaging Employees (With Infogphic from @madisonpgroup) #SHRM12

It’s going to be a busy week here in Atlanta. I’ve just got in and my body is confused because it thinks it is 8.00am and I should be getting up, whilst the time is 3.00am and I should be sleeping! I left Amsterdam this morning after a great #truAmsterdam. The events seem to be […]

#HRCarnival: Posts in pictures. June 20’th Edition.

I’m honoured to be hosting this months #HRCarnival. It was a short notice request to step in, but I knew the community would come good, and they did. Thanks everyone who contributed, I loved reading your blogs. The great thing about hosting the carnival is that you get to discover a few new blogs, and […]

Agency recruiters and #socialrecruiting

I was recently asked to contribute to an e-book aimed at third party recruiting firms. I will share the links when the book becomes available. but in the meantime, this is an exert on my thoughts on some of the challenges the recruitment industry faces from corporate recruiting to technology adoption. Agency recruiters and social-media. […]

At the end of next week I’m off to #SHRM12 in Atlanta and I’m excited. I’m a bit giddy because this is a huge conference/ with over 10,000 people attending. I’ve never been to a conference of this size (unless you count #SXSW and I really only party hopped there),    and there’s lots of […]

Hanging Out With Bullhorn. The Future Of #SocialRecruiting

I’m going to be taking part in a hang out chat on Google+ with Steven Duque, Bullhorns social media evangelist. We decided to go with a hangout because we want the conversations to be informal, rehearsed and a genuine conversation. The feature we are going to be using is Google+ Air that was launched in […]

Twitter trends just got personal

There’s a new feature on twitter that I think is quite neat. On the twitter screen you can access trends by clicking on the #discover tab. Before Wednesday this gave you the global trends from twitter. You got to see the tweets, links, videos and pictures that were being most shared. This was quite interesting […]

BranchOut Responds

I recently featured a guest rant from Dutch blogger Marc Drees, entitled “Hey Blodget, you better shut your pie hole.” with apologies to Marc, the title should have concluded “before LinkedIn does it for you!”. The gist of the post was comments on the significant decline in monthly average users of  the Facebook recruiting app […]

The church of the holy tweeters featuring @RevRichardColes

Rectors, priests and vicars are really recruiters in cassocks. Their job (among other things) is to spread a brand or a message, and engage with what is largely a passive population, and recruit them in some way in to the flock. I’m not a religious person, but then I’m also not unreligous .Probably best described as agnostic, […]
