Twitter in the recruitment process

I am sorry but I have to call this out. The RCSA is the peak Australian association for the recruitment and on-hire sector (according to their web site) but I do wonder sometimes if they know what is going on. (Disclosure I am not a member and have only attended a few of their events so myContinue reading “Twitter in the recruitment process”

Internal Social Network Analysis

Following yesterday’s post on future recruiting technology, which looking back should have read future talent management technology, here is an example of thing I am seeing in the market. SAP has built a Social Network Analyzer prototype for inside the organisation. (Hat tip James Governor.) It aggregates existing enterprise data to display and discover organizational relationships. It providesContinue reading “Internal Social Network Analysis”

The future of recruiting technology

I have been thinking a lot recently about the future of recruiting technology. While social networking is all the rage at the moment it is not new, and was first seen as a recruitment tool at least two to three years ago if not longer. So where to next?

Future Summit Wrap Up

Using Twitter for HR and Recruiting

If you had been watching my to do list for the last 18 months you would have seen an item sitting there and just not getting done. It was important but never urgent so never touched. Write an introduction document on Twitter for HR and Recruiting.  There have been lots of documents/posts/articles on the subjectContinue reading “Using Twitter for HR and Recruiting”

ATC Summary

Over the last few days I have published a number of posts summarising the sessions at ATC that I attended. However I wanted to pull together an overall summary of my thoughts from the event.
