10 Articles Recruiters Shared The Most This Week

October 17, 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, Laszlo Bock, Google’s SVP of People Operations, joined other LinkedIn Influencers to discuss what’s one thing he’d like to fix. For Bock, that’s the information asymmetry (different levels on information on both sides of an interaction) that leads to people being matched with the wrong jobs and also high unemployment.

Eliminating information asymmetry would mean moving “from “four years of public accounting experience” to “ability to learn quantitative methods combined with a zeal for catching and correcting the smallest of errors, persuade with data, and thrive in social settings” as job criteria, and to then identify people based on who they really are. “ It would also mean people having the data to make informed choices about what career skills are in demand and thus reduce unemployment.
