Sourcing = Trick or Treating

Sourcing = Trick or Treating

When you were younger, likely you joined the rest of the neighborhood kids by trick-or-treating on Halloween. Once you got a bit older, you knew which houses had the best candy, and which ones handed out FULL-SIZED CANDY BARS , and then those that handed out toothbrushes in lieu of candy. However, in all my memories of trick-or-treating, I still went to every housebecause, even though I knew that certain houses were known to hand out toothbrushes, I loved looking at the great mixture that I had accumulated at the end of the night. ...

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?

I didn't know this when I was a kid, but there's a mathematical formula whereby... Read More

Referral Program Design: Recognition versus Recall

The human brain is a highly complex organ, and two ways to retrieve information tucked away in memory are recognition and recall. To put it simply, the difference between recognition and recall is whether or not stimulus is present; recall lacks stimulus. A fill-in-the-blank test requires recalling the correct answer whereas a multiple choice test requires recognizing the correct answer from a list. Recall tends to be harder because it lacks hints to point the brain in the right direction. The concept of recognition being superior to... Read More
