How Long Should It Take a Candidate to Make a Decision on a Job Offer?

When you make a candidate an offer, how long do you give them to tell you they want the job or not? 24 hours? 3 days? 1 week? Immediately? For two decades I’ve been in the camp of a candidate should be able to tell you ‘yes’ or ‘no’ immediately, or you (the recruiter and […]

How Hard is it for Candidates to Find Your Jobs on your Career Site?

The other day I got contacted by a large enterprise level TA leader. She had a major problem about to hit them. They had to hire thousands of people and she was hoping I could tell her which chatbot to use to help them. Sweet! I love TA Tech, let’s talk about some of my […]

Ugh! Being an Inclusive Employer is Hard!

It seems like being an ‘inclusive’ employer would be super easy! You just accept everyone! Can’t we all just get along!? The reality is, being an inclusive employer is hard, because being inclusive isn’t about accepting everyone. What!? Oh, great, Tim has finally lost his mind, buckle-up!

Career Confessions from GenZ: Are You Recruiting Me on YouTube?

In the past few years, I have developed a new obsession: gymnastics. I have gone full on gymnastics crazy.

Your Weekly Dose of HR Tech: @MontageTalent – The Better Candidate Experience

This week on the Weekly Dose I review the interview and hiring platform Montage. Montage was started as one of those technologies that filled in some of the huge gaps that most ATS systems just didn’t address. It’s easiest to think of them as an interview platform, but over the last few years, they’ve really […]

Career Confessions from GenZ: Are you Pre-boarding Interns?

College orientation was one of the most uncomfortable and awkward experiences of my life. I would say that most other current college students would attest to this. I think it’s very unreasonable to expect a group of 18-year-olds to meet for the first time and become friends in a short time span while learning everything […]
