Recruitment Solutions to Reach More Passive Candidates

We’re coming out of an unprecedented (yes, it’s overused, but there’s a reason for that, it’s a perfect way to describe the last 15 months) time, and now we’re in the new normal. And that new normal includes more passive candidates than anyone anticipated. Many industries are struggling to fill positions and maybe it’s because there’s a higher health risk, some people need to be home to care for loved ones, and some are re-evaluating their career paths and moving into recession (and pandemic) pr...

September linkfest

Mountain Dew, the neon-yellow-green soft drink brand owned by PepsiCo, evidently failed to consult anyone in Scotland before it introduced its new ad slogan, “Epic thrills start with a chug.” If it had, it would have learned that chug is Scottish slang for masturbate.
