Recruiting In the Age of Job Hopping

Recruiting In the Age of Job Hopping | Recruiting with Social Media | Scoop.it
By Jennifer Umali Many companies are still playing catch-up when it comes to the growing trend of job hopping. Recent studies show that individuals change jobs or industries an average of 11 times within their professional lifetimes.
RecruiterLarry's insight:

Note to Recruiters: it is essential to understand that it is no longer a negative to see candidates that have several job changes under the 3 year mark.  Times have changed. We must change with them.

Michèle Richner's comment, August 8, 2013 3:49 AM
I completely agree with you. 1 year is probably the new 3 year mark.

A key to recruitment SEO is to nail these 5 things in your job description: 1) The URL should be in Plain English; 2) Be specific; 3) Longevity; 4) Use Video & Pictures; 5) Get Links.
RecruiterLarry's insight:

We spend so much time driving traffic to our career page but are only converting (industry average) around 8-12 % of the people who actually click and view our jobs.  

 

Bright Idea:

 

Let's spend more time converting (getting them click apply) or capture some contact info. @recruiterlarry

Waste No, Want Not ~ Building Alumni Talent Communities is just smart sourcing!

Waste No, Want Not ~ Building Alumni Talent Communities is just smart sourcing! | Recruiting with Social Media | Scoop.it
When was the last time you saw a great corporate Alumni page, activity, community, strategy? The last one I saw was a recent tweet about Accenture sending their Alumni, Valentines days cards, sayin...
RecruiterLarry's insight:

I totally agree - corporate alumni are a very important part of the recruiting eco system. Not only are their referrals more likely to succeed (familiar with skills + culture) but if they come back (boomerangs) they are usually committed and high performing. LH

 

Since we are talking about "talent communities", Don't forget about : 

 

Silver Medalist  (Candidates that made it through the process but didn't get offer) 

Orphans (Candidates that build a profile in your ATS but don't apply)

Influencers - Fans of your brand, People following your company on LinkedIn, Twitter, facebook, Youtube. 

 

That's all for now.....

 

Please continue to add ideas by commenting and sharing. :)
