Why Your Employer Brand Should Inform Your Job Postings
Employer branding has never been so important. With the shift in the job market to a candidate-centered focus, how you present your company, your EB, and your brand voice is of paramount importance. You need to position yourself as the employer of choice, so when passive job seekers decide they’re ready to jump ship, they know where to look.   Your branding strategy is what helps increase the quality of candidates, reduce hiring costs, and retain the talent you already have.

CRM vs ATS: What's the Difference?
A huge transformation is taking place. A shift in the talent acquisition world from being a largely reactive effort to a predominantly proactive one.

What Are the Keys to a Thriving HR Ecosystem?
HR technology in 2019 is changing rapidly. According to Crunchbase, VCs invested the equivalent of 700 million USD in recruiting software startups this year alone. The race to define the perfect HR technology ecosystem is on in full force, and there are as many potential answers as there are startups. Even amidst all of these new and exciting developments, one thing remains pretty clear: there are a lot of considerations that go into defining the right technology for any given HR team, and making that determination rea...

5 Strategies for Leveraging Technology in Recruitment
The labor market turned a corner when no one was looking. It’s now largely, if not completely, candidate-driven. That means HR departments and contract agencies alike are scrambling to find the best ways to attract candidates for their openings. This situation is leading to a set of problems recruiters have never had to deal with in modern memory:   • Lack of quality candidates • Low engagement • Losing great candidates to the competition • Putting together a st...

How Talent Acquisition Professionals can beat the 2% Tech Unemployment Rate
It’s no secret that hiring software developers and engineers is a difficult task. As more and more businesses outside the traditional tech world start to take digital transformation seriously, the competition for technical talent feels like it’s never been stiffer. And, by and large, the numbers bear this feeling out: the tech unemployment rate in the United States right now is a microscopic 2%, and things are just as dire elsewhere (in the UK, for instance, nearly 90% of companies expect a shortage of skilled tech workers in the next year). This incredibly h...

The Top 5 Metrics for Measuring Candidate Experience
Candidate experience has always been a primary concern for HR and recruitment marketing. That said, the current candidate-centered job market has pushed it even further into the spotlight. If a candidate doesn’t have a good experience working with you, or if your online presence doesn’t resonate with them, they’ll just walk next door to your competitor.   That means you stand to lose not only that great, high-quality candidate but also any future referrals they might have brought along, as well as the stellar reviews they could have left on

What is RPA’s Role in the Future of Recruitment Marketing?

The introduction of recruitment marketing automation into the HR landscape, for instance, represented a big technological shift, and that's just one of a new of new concepts and ideas that are changing that ways in which businesses connect to new candidates. And of those emerging technologies, robotic process automation, or RPA, has direct applicability to the RM world. In short, RPA consists of software-based robots, or “bots,” that can be co...

HR Tech 2019: What Went Down
It’s like they say, what happens in Vegas… gets blogged about later on. Or, what happens in Vegas helps us to better understand the future of work and technology. Okay, maybe these aren’t the catchiest sayings—but we’ll stand by the sentiments!   Okay, for those of you who haven’t had October 4th 2019 circled prominently on your calendars since the last HR Tech Conference a year ago, here’s the relevant background: this past week, SmartDreamers attended the large...

Why Automation is One of the Keys to Hiring Diversity
It is a truth universally acknowledged that the status quo in hiring and talent acquisition just isn’t cutting it. Not only is an incredibly competitive talent market making things like job boards and recruiting agencies less effective than ever, an increasing (and laudable) push across multiple industries towards more diverse and inclusive hiring is presenting us with a clear picture of all the ways that hiring processes can go wrong. When homogenous teams in the workplace are described as a systemic issue, this is partially what’s meant: that the processes that we have in place for attrac...

How Does Recruitment Marketing Automation impact the Candidate’s Journey?
Recruitment marketing and customer experience exist in a mutually beneficial feedback loop, with each feeding and at the same time playing off against each other. That means that any change made to your RM efforts will have an impact on the way your potential candidates and applicants experience their time interacting with you. It also means that you need to be paying attention to those experiences so you can adjust and tweak your marketing to reflect what you learn.   One less explored area of this interplay is the additional impact that recruitment marketing...

Mobile Recruitment: Why It Matters
Recruitment marketing has one primary goal, to reach the right potential candidates, at the right time, and in the right place. Increasingly, that means on their mobile devices. To wit, candidates now spend more than five hours a day on their smartphones, and up to 70% of web traffic happens on a mobile device (CIODive, 2018). Yet, for some reason, fewer than 1 in 10 companies say they have a mobile-friendly application process. How many awesome candidates are th...

HR Struggles? Here's How Technology Can Help
