Social RecruitingHere is our weekly feature in which we share the top articles we enjoyed from the past week about recruitment marketing, social recruiting and anything else in the recruiting space. In this article, we’ll be talking about social recruiting, branding, hiring people, boosting boss / employee relations and source of hire tracking.

Before we get to the articles, I have two reminders.

First, I would like to welcome our new Chief Sales Officer Scott Fowle to the SmashFly team.  You can read his post on “Why I joined SmashFly” here.

Second, the Candidate Experience Awards have started accepting applications for this year’s awards and is a great way to benchmark your candidate experience by some of the industry’s best recruiting organizations.   To get further details on how to participate as a recruiting organization, please see the “How to Apply?” page on the website.

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

Nice look at ways to improve your recruiting by improving employee and boss relationships.


Source of Hire Matters by Maren Hogan (@marenhogan)

A good post on the source of hire metric debate.  I’d also add tracking source of quality (i.e. the sources that provide qualified candidates) to the metrics you capture.  We can help do this at SmashFly too.

Hope you enjoy the list.
