Is Your Career Site on HTTPS? Google Thinks It Should Be

Sometimes, technological innovation requires a little bit of force to get people on board. Remember when Apple started to remove the disc drive from their MacBooks? That is something we can’t forget. What seems like forever ago, Steve Jobs gave a keynote speech about how their new MacBook Air didn’t have an optical drive. Many people were not ready for…

What the Super Bowl Commercials Can Teach Us About Employer Branding

For football fans, the Super Bowl is the most anticipated game of the year, where people across the United States and world gathered around their TV screens yesterday to find out which team will be crowned the season’s NFL champion.

The Unspoken Reason Recruiting Content Works

Beyond the tips, tricks, tactics and hacks for helping you build content that communicates your employer brand, beyond formats and social channels you hope will build brand loyalty, beyond the myriad ways you can measure the content's value, there's one thing that no one talks about - despite it being the most important reason content works.

If that sounds familiar, you’re not alone. It turns out everyone…

It’s Time to Take a Page from Greta Garbo and Make the Transition

I have long admired Greta Garbo and not just because we share the same first name. Garbo was a tremendously popular silent film star when “The Jazz Singer” was released as the first “talking film” in 1927. Garbo put off making the transition as long as she could, not because she didn’t have the voice, but because she wanted to…

Recent Changes to Impact Physician Recruitment for Years to Come

These trends heavily impacted the way physicians are being recruited in 2009. In fact, 2008 is now being called a “tipping point” year that has had the…

Integrating Twitter in Canadian Media Strategies

A recently released report published by Ipsos Reid Canada on Twitter showed that only 26% of Canadians who are online are aware of Twitter (or roughly 6 million Canadians). What’s even more interesting is that only 6% of those, or 360,000, are actually using Twitter. While this number is small, it is important to note that Twitter is a recent…

The Scarlet Letter Of Unemployment

What will they think of next? Now, for only $3, you can purchase one of these high-fashion bracelets to advertise your unemployment. LAIDOFFNEEDAJOB.com (that's seriously the name of this organization) was started by two really sweet looking, middle aged women. So, I'm trying not to be too critical. But, at the risk of inviting bad karma in my life, these…

Feel Good Item For a Monday. The Power of The Crowd.

This video just puts a smile on my face.  13,500 people in Trafalgar Square singing Hey Jude may not be significant in recruitment at first glance, however, if we dig deeper, we can begin to see how it may have an impact.  Mobile (SMS, MMS, etc.) allowed for the message about the event to spread virally.  Twitter drove participation.  Mobile…
