Boost Your Passive Recruiting Game

Are you an order-filler, or are you a recruiter ? Sometimes even if your title says "recruiter," you don't have time to do what you know you should be doing: finding the best people for the job and getting them to join the company. Depending on your company, you may be getting some good people in your applicant pool, but they might not be the best people for the job. This is where passive recruiting should come into play. "Who has time for passive recruiting?" you're thinking... "I'm just trying to keep up with these open requisitions... Read More

Continuous Recruitment is for Smart Recruiters

Are you a busy recruiter? Of course you are. All recruiters are busy! If you're thinking, "why would I be busy when I've filled all of my open requisitions?" it might be time to examine your processes. Do you have one (or two, or three) job(s) that take a long time to fill, or are really difficult to find candidates? Maybe it's time to build out a continuous recruitment plan. In a Career Builder Study of more than 2,600 hiring managers nationwide, it was shown that: 72% of U.S. employers that actively market to candidates say... Read More


Do you post "I'm Hiring!" on LinkedIn?

Do you post

Are you a recruiter that tries to get great candidates from posting a generic "I'm Hiring for a [job title]" on LinkedIn? Okay, we heard you. Is that all you have to say? Am I supposed to just send over anyone I know that might qualify for the job? Why would I do that? Just because I'm your friend or because I'm connected to you? Probably not. If I see your "I'm Hiring" post on LinkedIn, I breeze right by and move down to someone who is posting some interesting, relevant content that I want to read. Am I the only person that... Read More


What Is A Recruiter's Favorite Board Game?

What Is A Recruiter's Favorite Board Game?

No, this isn't a joke... Recruiters have many different styles and approaches, but I find that the truly successful ones approach their life (not just their workday) as a big game of Connect Four .  For those of you that remember that game, it's a 2-person game that is played with colored disks in a suspended grid. Each player alternates turns, and the first one to "connect four" of their disks in a row (horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) wins. I didn't know this when I was a kid, but there's a mathematical formula whereby... Read More

Referral Link: In Pictures

When people ask us, "What is Referral Link?" we usually tell them that it's a quick way to get employee referrals for your company's open jobs, with minimal impact on your employees' work day. When they ask, "How do you do that?" we schedule a demo for them and show them the science behind what we're doing here at Innotrieve.

What is Human Resources Worried About?

Every Human Resources organization is different, but in my experience I can tell you that  HR usually worries about a mix of these 4 things: Creating a Great Culture Leadership Development Employee On-boarding Documentation Culture - this is always an interesting one for me. HR is usually tasked with making sure the organization has a great culture. How does this happen? Well it starts with hiring the right people .  After that, culture is usually developed through training, leadership approach, promotional... Read More

Free Publicity. Chopping Superfluous Job Descriptions. Internal Branding. Job Fairs. University Contacts.

These are some of the key points from last Thursday's " Where Oh Where Have All the Candidates Gone ?" workshop, sponsored by the Larimer County Workforce Center and presented by Carrie Pinsky . In attendance were a handful of HR Professionals and Recruiters from local companies, who were all faced with their own unique sourcing challenges. From how to handle employee referrals without giving too much preferential treatment, to building candidate pipelines and even where to find entry-level candidates. Carrie presented a few ideas...
