4 Lessons Talent Acquisition Teams Can Steal from Marketers

For decades, marketers have been in overdrive to keep up with fast-paced innovations in marketing technology. In the beginning, an impersonal email blast to cold leads might have brought marketers results. However, consumers evolved and so did marketing technology.

When It’s Time to Say “Uncle” to Your Recruiting Technology

In the wonderful world we live, many of us believe most things are possible. Possibility is part of the American psyche. It is one of the reasons we get out of bed in the morning. However, there will always be some things in life that unfortunately, do not go in our favor.

Keeping Your Talent Pipeline Pressurized

It never occurred to me that my job in recruiting technology and my husband’s in critical infrastructure security would cross paths. But it has. Kind of. I spend most of my day thinking and talking about talent pipelines, hiring processes, and onboarding strategies. While my husband, on the other hand, is more concerned with ensuring the safety of the people and environment associated with thousands of miles of natural gas pipeline. We’re both concerned with keeping a pipeline functioning smoothly.
