Recruitment: Why December Really Matters

Because most firms don’t recruit during this period, it’s easy to follow the crowd and to also shut down your own recruiting effort. Strategically, however, that would be a huge mistake and a missed opportunity. The best time to recruit is when others are idle and when the candidates are most available and receptive. This is even truer if you are a lesser-known organization that has little success when you must recruit side-by-side against better-known competitors.

We strive to do whatever it takes (ethically) to find that always elusive blue diamond, that needle in the proverbial passive haystack, and, against all odds, turn them into interested, engaged applicants.

Why Online Research is Necessary before Making Your Hiring Decision

The ability to research social media is a huge asset to employers before an interview. That is why it is extremely important that all of us should think long and hard before posting anything on the internet. Good, bad or indifferent.
