Here are the articles that interested us this week (in no particular order), enjoy!:

Modding the Hiring Process by Steve Boese (@SteveBoese)

This is a great story of how WibiData found an interesting and powerful way to connect with their target candidates.  Who would have thought it was Portal.

You Deserve Your Crappy Response by Bill Boorman (@BillBoorman)

Interesting post by Bill on quantity vs. quality entering your hiring process.  My take on this is that you need to be measuring every source you use based on qualified candidates and hires they produce and make decisions off of this data.

Dear XXX, If They Won’t Hire You, We Will by John Sumser (@JohnSumser)

Nice share of Smith and Wollensky’s employer branding efforts and great example of targeted messaging to a specific candidate population.

Now is a good time to take measure of your Career Site by John Zappe (@ERE_net)

Good reminder by John to review your Career Site metrics.  By measuring how your content and Career Site performs, it should enable you to understand how to produce better content.  Also, including your Career Site in your Source of Hire metrics is important as well.

5 FAQs about Jobs at Sodexo by Chloe Rada (@crada)

This is a great example of simple but great content that you can create for candidates on your Career Site.  It’s helpful and provides some insight into the opportunities available at Sodexo and hopefully should help the candidate experience with the how-to’s.

Hope you enjoy the list.  If you have any articles I should add to the list feel free to add them to the comments or follow us on Twitter @smashfly.
