3. How To Stay Out of LinkedIn Jail

LinkedIn Jail…I’m sure every recruiter has heard of this dark and dreary place. A place where no recruiter would EVER like to end up! There’s been much talk around what gets you jailed but how much of this is actually true?

4. Job Advertising 101

Why are your job ads not attracting the right candidates? Are you using the right language when writing a job ad? SocialTalent’s Mark Higgins emphasises how important advertisement is in the recruitment process and explains the difference between a job spec and a job ad.

Mark also looked at the strategy behind your job ad and questions what it is you want to achieve. Every recruiter wants an increase in applications from all the RIGHT candidates and knowing the components of a great job ad will strengthen your chances of making quality hires!! 

5. New World of Sourcing

So much is talked about machine technology replacing the everyday recruiter, but how true is this? Are the days of Boolean search strings a thing of the past? What can the modern recruiter do to stay competitive in an already competitive industry?

Johnny will look at how technology is changing and how the skills needed for recruiters to effectively source have evolved.
