The Evolution of Recruiting from 2009-2019

In 2008, I published a book with ATD Press called Success for Hire. Since then, I’ve followed the field closely and for this article, wanted to consider some of the major recruiting changes that have taken place over the last decade. The “Black Hole of HR” is No More When I entered this field, I advised candidates never to blindly submit a resume to a job board or an applicant tracking system (ATS). At the time, doing so was often a guarantee that no human eyes would ever rest on your materials....

Kobi writes that he has known the Hebrew word plonter – פלונטר since he was born: Morfix, which is a Hebrew – English online dictionary, says it’s (slang) entanglement, knot; (slang) imbroglio. I find it in the Urban Dictionary but not in the OED (I have v4.0). Google translate finds it in Russian [Google search]. It isn’t an original Hebrew word for sure. I wonder where it comes from. Any ideas?

We Are Social’s Monday Mashup #461

Facebook reveals how Oversight Board will work Facebook has released a charter explaining how its (theoretically) independent Oversight Board will work. The board will review appeals to Facebook’s policy decisions, like content takedowns, and make recommendations for changes. Its decision will be final, even if those at Facebook aren’t happy about it. But many are skeptical, particularly as Facebook itself will choose the board’s initial members. For a rundown of how the board came about, how it...

New things are often frowned upon since a sudden and drastic change can disrupt routine and many other comforts we used to enjoy. WordPress’ Gutenberg update is one of those things; it scrapped the WYSIWIG editor (Classic) for a shinier Gutenberg Block Editor. It’s new, sleek, and it also caused a lot of chaos among writers who preferred the good ole reliable WYSIWIG. However, it’s not all that bad. The Gutenberg Block Editor can seem unwieldy at times but put in a little patience and y...

That’s because the new iPhones feature a wide notch or cutout at the top and hence there isn’t enough space to display the battery percentage icon. Che...
