In a tough economic climate, RPO - Recruitment Process Outsourcing - can be a terrific alternative to traditional recruiting solutions. It doesn't have to be a 2-year implementation that drives everyone crazy with meeting after meeting and administrative headaches. It's really just about approaching the recruitment function a little differently, having a clear understanding of the pain points that need to be addressed, and establishing some clear goals. It's okay to start small!

Today, Baby Boomers - people born between 1946 and 1964 - represent 30% of the population, and the majority of managers in North American businesses. While there's been a lot of attention paid to attracting, recruiting and retaining Gen Y employees, Baby Boomers present different challenges. Some studies suggest that baby boomers are headed for retirement en masse, while other studies say that, thanks to the fact that we're living longer, healthier lives, baby boomers are interested in working past retirement age. How can organizations prepare for this demographic shift?

This week, Monster launched its new Facebook application, BeKnown, designed to allow people to use Facebook for professional networking. When LinkedIn abruptly cut off BeKnown's - as well as rival BranchOut's - API access, effectively preventing users of the apps from importing information from their LinkedIn profiles, everyone started talking about the effects of data-sharing across applications.
For recruiters, however, the other big question right now is: Do we really need more than one major professional social networking site? Facebook has 7 times as many users as LinkedIn - does this make a Facebook-based application a better long-term play than LinkedIn, or will Facebook be undone by its own privacy problems?

All of us like to look at - and admire - those lists of '10 Greatest Job Ads'. We forward them to our (recruiter) friends, and we know that they attract better applicants, faster. But sometimes it's 4:30 on a Friday afternoon, you've got to get a couple of jobs posted in time for the weekend browsers, and seems easier just to copy and paste whatever the hiring manager has sent you.
Don't let that happen to you! With a little bit of advance planning, a few simple rules, and a handy thesaurus, you too can write a job ad that has originality and sex appeal, even on a Friday afternoon!
