Career CompanionHere 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 recruiter / candidate relationship, candidate experience, job fit, getting a job and sourcing on LinkedIn.

Before we get to the articles, I have a quick reminder.  The Candidate Experience Awards have started accepting applications for this year’s awards and is a great way to benchmark your candidate experience against 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.
