10 Articles Recruiters Shared The Most This Week

May 23, 2014

In case you need a stimulating read, here’s a great list for you.

We took a look at the articles staffing and corporate recruiters shared the most on LinkedIn during the last 7 days and posted them below.

This week Kelly Blokdijk’s impassioned defense of job hoppers caught our eye. Blokdijk argues that when most recruiters and hiring managers see that a candidate has hopped around jobs, they automatically classify her as “flaky, unstable, directionless.” In reality, she argues that the reason for her moves (and those of other “hoppers”) are more aligned around the drive for growth and avoiding stagnation. The post ends with a request to recruiters to give hoppers the benefit of the doubt because their diverse sets of experiences can be much more valuable than predictability.
