In this article, we’ll be talking about employer branding, hiring for cultural fit, job referrals and recruitment predictions for 2013.

Before we get to the articles, I’d also like to provide a link to the  “Recruiting Channels 2012 Survey” that Kyle Lagunas put together.  I encourage you to take a few minutes to fill it out, should be some great data to help improve your recruitment media strategy going forward.
