Eat the frog… what the f***?
Anyone that knows us has probably seen our posts encouraging Recruiters to adopt a winning or “big billing” mindset. But recently we had one that caused a lot of emails and messages to come in. EAT THE FROG is a common phrase in our office and it’s one I have personally worked to for most of my career. So I was initially confused to see so many questions coming in about this…

Blind hiring is an HR practice that aims at reducing biases during the hiring process. The idea is to promote talent acquisition based on a transparent method and hire eligible candidates regardless of their name, gender, mother tongue, religion, and socioeconomic background.
It also forbids the hiring managers to ask about the academic qualification and professional experience of a candidate during the hiring process.

First impressions matter. In a study conducted a few years ago, the researchers looked into the impact of an employee’s onboarding experience on their turnover. A staggering 69% of the employees were found to be more likely to stay for at least three years after a great onboarding experience. On the flip side, it was also noted that nearly a fifth of all turnover happens within the first 45 days of employment.

Sometimes, your firm’s worst enemy in the hiring process may not be market conditions, financial limitations or even certain candidates consistently being ‘the one that got away’.
Instead, you may need to scrutinise parts of your own company’s recruitment process to ensure you aren’t self-sabotaging. Here are just a few of the potential problem areas.
The number of interviews
It’s understandable that you might want to hold quite a few interviews to guard against the risk of a promising candidate turning into a nightmare once they are actually in the job.

At a time when it can seem as difficult as ever for so many firms to source suitable candidates, your organisation may understandably be reviewing whether it is adopting the right talent-search approaches in 2018.
Consider the long-time rivalry between job boards and digital marketing, for example.

Apprenticeship schemes actually originate from the Middle Ages. Master craftsmen were allowed to employ a young person as an inexpensive option of labour.
Since then, there’s been a huge evolution in how apprenticeship schemes work and the way that they are perceived.
According to gov.uk, 491,300 young people started an apprenticeship between 2016 and 2017, with 24.6% of them aged 19 and under.

When hiring, getting a lot of applicants isn’t always a good thing. Some job seekers just blast resumes off for jobs they’re not entirely qualified for and hope for the best. The recruiting team then has to sort through them all to find the handful who have what it takes to do the job.
In an ideal world, professionals with the right background would be the only ones who apply.

Two decades ago, businesses did not give a hoot about what went on online. Much to their surprise, they needed an online presence shortly afterward. After a few more years, a mere online presence ceased to do the trick. The time had come for outstanding content, and the popular online “household” phrase ‘content is king’ emerged.
Today, the online space is characterized by cutthroat competition that compels businesses to look beyond content to get to professional writers, who in addition to authoring the content can provide value-added services such as developing a killer content strategy that attracts traffic and converts them into customers.
