This is a very belated post. Last month I dragged my exhausted jet-lagged ass to the Social Recruiting Summit in Minneapolis, USA. It took me 5 flights to get to Minneapolis and over 20 hours of flying time - it was partly my fault as I decided to travel the less direct route from New Zealand via Australia to the USA. I just want to confirm that NZ is nowhere near France or England or somewhere in the USA - I had to point this out to a few summit attendees. This is the… Continue

We are all reading the hype with social media, so what are some fundamental uses or changes in our business in amongst all that ‘noise’? When it comes to new media and communications, it’s a jungle out there…and for the past 12 months I’ve said “Right…we’ve got to keep up!" So here’s my take about one area.
The CV was and still is a critical personal branding document – but various recent client comments... especially when clients comment about the look, content and… Continue

Social Recruiting, it is a myth to many, a fad to some, a living for others and a no brainer for all but a few. It is the new channel for companies to focus a percentage of their… Continue

I started a discussion last week on several social networking platforms. The question was, “what social networking platform has been of most help to recruiters in Q1 2010?" Being a social media enthusiast, the responses were very insightful and helped us at HireLabs to better understand the social recruitment industry. From over 500+ responses to the question above, following is what we have :
1. LinkedIn – 30%
2. Facebook – 25%
3. Twitter – 29%
4. Others –… Continue

I wanted to wait a few weeks till I wrote my blog on what my takeaways were from #trulondon to let them sink in properly. For me, it was a great event. Logistically, we had a few problems and hands up, we made a few cock ups that we need to get right, mostly around communication and things like coffee and lunches. We have learnt plenty of lessons, and for that side of the event ,I would score 4/10. We went in to the event without a plan B, and when things didn’t quite work out we came a bit… Continue

The Google Buzz is yet another innovative creation of Google in response to Twitter and Facebook. How is it better? Well, firstly it has the convenience of, quite literally, being right there in your Gmail Inbox. Secondly, conversations are threaded and can also be made in private but most importantly, it doesn’t have a word limit like Twitter does.
You own your content, choose and filter how you want to see your messages and it doesn’t crowd your inbox… Continue

So you think you are utilising Social Media for your recruitment efforts. Well to a degree you probably are. You have a Twiiter account, you search LinkedIn when you can, and you are about to jump in to Facebook to see if you have any new fans, and maybe just maybe you have plans for a video of some sort promoting your wonderful work environment.
This is great, you have started. but is that really everything? The term that we use is Social Recruiting, for most people it covers the… Continue

I’m not a tree hugger, well I am, but not in the ‘protest and chain myself to a bark for the day’ type of tree hugger. However I do believe in karma of sorts. Allow me to take recruitment down the spiritual path for a sentence or two.
So we are all connected, from the small ant to the great white. Indeed someone told me once that if it weren’t for ants, the human race would not exist (something about the biological ecosystem community, I have no idea, and haven’t got round to… Continue
