10 Articles Recruiters Shared The Most This Week

June 12, 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 there were a lot of great posts that are worth a special mention, but I’d like to highlight three in particular. Andrew Fraser and Daniel Allen’s articles offer a critical look into recruiters’ behavior and share insight into how they felt about working with talent acquisition professionals. While some of the points won’t be pleasant to read, it is a fascinating look into how recruiters can improve the jobseeker experience.

And if you need an ego boost after this, read Patricia Tourigny’s post on why recruiting is one of the best jobs in HR – she has five very compelling reasons why you should feel quite important.
