Mobile users turn away from Dajie.com

The recruitment and professional social networking platform Dajie.com is failing to make inroads among mobile users, according to the most recent report from Sootoo.com.  In H2 2018, total hours spent on the Dajie.com app fell by 8 percent year-over-year. Domestic rival Mai Mai was up 6 percent year-over-year in the same metric. Dajie.com has been on a downward trajectory since announcing the completion of…

Your Weekly Dose of HR Tech: @Indeed takes Away Free Traffic to Staffing firms!

Today on The Weekly Dose I dig into Indeed’s recent announcement to stop scraping the jobs from staffing companies. If you didn’t hear Indeed announced as the Staffing World conference that beginning January 7, 2019, they would no longer include “recruitment-based” jobs in their organic search results due to ongoing search quality issues (link to the official Indeed Policy on Recruitment-based companies). I was…

What We Should Take Away From Amazon’s Embedding Bias in Its Algorithm and Stopping the Project

A while ago I wrote an article warning recruiters about embedding their bias in their selection algorithms. The problem, as I described, is we all have a bias, usually unconscious. Just look around you right now at your department. Is this a good representation of your community in terms of gender, age, ethnicity, and sexual preference? Probably not. And that’s probably not because you’re…

Office Bullying is Driving Your Talent Away, Right Under Your Nose

While harassment and more egregious workplace behaviors finally received the attention they deserve thanks to the #MeToo movement last year, another crucial issue plaguing the office continues to go unnoticed. Bullying in the workplace is turning out to be a bigger concern than many would think. Without clear legal or office policies, oftentimes workers aren’t even sure what constitutes bullying, or if they should…

Is Your Candidate Experience Also Driving Great Candidates Away?

We all know that job candidates are getting fed up with how they’re treated when they apply for jobs. That’s why the “candidate experience” — how job seekers perceive and react to employers’ sourcing, recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and onboarding — gets so much attention. The complaints about the terrible state of the candidate experience in many companies seem to come, largely, from people who…

Career Confessions of GenZ w/@CamSackett: Maybe You Should Take Our Smartphones Away!

March Madness is fully upon us. This season unites us all over a love for college basketball or in my case, a love for winning money by googling an article about who the “Cinderella” teams are and somehow winning your neighborhood pool (it’s only happened once). Whether your team is out (sorry Dad) or still fighting (Go Blue!), the close matches between teams can…

Why Companies Are Moving Away From Annual Reviews

Theoretically, performance management should happen every day. Think of it this way, if Lionel Messi was playing in a way his manager Luis Enrique didn’t like, would he wait until the end of the season? Absolutely not. They would address the problem immediately and send Messi in the desired direction.

The Candidate Fade Away

There’s this thing that happens with dating nowadays, called the Fade Away.  I know this because I have teenage sons.  The Fade Away is when you’re dating someone and you know it’s not for you long term, but instead of just telling that person you start the Fade Away process. You stop talking and start texting.  The texting slowly becomes less frequent, spread out and…

Recruiting Online? Put Those Judgy Eyes Away.

In what seems like the dark ages of social media, circa 2008, when I was training recruiters and sourcers on how to not only find people but engage in social media, it seemed like the phrase I said most was something akin to “Everyone can see what you post, so think before you post.” These days, that’s said by everyone. There are even PSAs…

So, enjoy the Reruns, they’re some of my favorites! Originally ran January 2011 – I like to use a lot – of – dashes – in my writing in – early –…
