When Job-Hopping Makes Sense

By Tony Lee, Chief Alliance Officer Adicio



With the economy improving every month and unemployment continuing to fall, the temptation to jump ship for more money or a better opportunity is great. In fact, the job boards we power benefit directly from this trend, as more candidates are searching online for that perfect opportunity.



Yet career counselors often advise that job hopping isn't a wise career move…

Average Candidates Make the Best Employees

By Manuel Francisci, CEO jobWings Careers, Inc.



People aggregators are the big thing this year. Instead of having candidates come to you, you hand pick candidates using people aggregators. The same promise was made more than a decade ago with the advent of the online résumé database. Recruiters had to pay to access a private résumé database and in return they could select candidates from a catalog.  Now…

Job Ads and Candidates: the Great Disconnect

By Jeff Dickey-Chasins, Job Board Doctor



The continuing discussion in recruiting about “active” and “passive” candidates will, in all likelihood, never end. But underneath the conversation lie a few interesting and lesser-known issues.



First, most hiring involves some element of attraction or “wooing” on the part of the employer. Even the most desperate active candidate still has…

Be a More Effective Manager by Learning to Delegate

By Tony Lee, Chief Alliance Officer Adicio



Ask any CEO to describe their greatest challenges on the job, and I'll bet that learning to delegate responsibility likely will be high on their list.



Managers who delegate well and follow up consistently are able to accomplish infinitely more than those who hoard tasks their subordinates should be doing. Remember that the key duties of a manager are to plan,…

Can Dating Sites Take Over the Recruitment Market?

By Gal Almog, CEO RealMatch



“eHarmony doesn’t just want to find you love – now it wants to find you a job, too.”

Employee Referrals – What is the Real Story?

By Gal Almog, CEO RealMatch



If there is something that could create a threat to job boards, it is employee referral programs. What makes more sense than to ask your employees to ask their friends to apply to a job opening in your company?



You trust your employees; they trust their friends, so you should trust their friends as well and put them at the top of your candidate list. With the growing…

Care about your Candidates’ Experience? Then Pay Attention to the Recruiter

By Ane Ohm, CEO HarQen



I get awfully grumpy when people blame recruiters for delivering a bad candidate experience. Have you ever been a recruiter? It’s REALLY HARD.
