Recruitment eBook available

About a month ago I decided to create an eBook based on some themes from my blog. After looking over the posts I decided to focus on the new trends and practices in recruitment. The eBook is finished and available for purchase at A$15.

Why am I charging if it is based on my blog that is free? Well first up I have pay rent somehow ;-).

No actually the eBook pulls together many of the key trends in recruitment today in a single easy to read 40 page document. I also believe that people tend to value and pay attention to something when they part with money.

Below is a short overview.

There are many ways to find the right candidate and like most things in life, some are more effective than others. Over the last 10 years, the process of finding candidates has moved from predominately print media to online. While this migration has been significant, the real changes have only just begun. With the Internet changing the way we work and communicate, how you find and engage with the workforce to identify the right candidate is also changing.

  • Some of the key trends in recruitment
  • Where candidates can be hiding
  • How to engage with candidates and get them to want to work for your organisation
  • How to use free tools to identify potential applicants
  • To which aspects of social media you should be paying attention

Writing an eBook

I have been reviewing many of my posts from the last 18 months and decided to try and turn some of them into an eBook, estimated about 40-50 pages. At this stage the book will cover the impact of web 2.0/social media on recruitment, exact title unknown. While a majority of the content is available on the blog the eBook will for purchase and available by download. As part of the book development I hope to weave together many of the thoughts and ideas from the blog into a bit of a road map, providing tips, hints and links for the reader.

Some of the topics I will be covering are:

  • Key trends in recruitment
  • Where candidates can be hiding
  • How to engage with candidates and get them to want to work for your organisation
  • How to use free tools to identify potential applicants
  • To which aspects of social media you should be paying attention

Availability, soon I hope.

The price will be around US$25 I think, is that too high or too low?
