News & Blog Sites for Recruiters and Human Resources Professionals

I’ve repeatedly been asked where we get all of our social content, the answer is a mix of main stream industry news sites and numerous small blogs that publish infrequently but produce some of the most insightful (and opinionated) content.

If you are interested in keeping up with the industry, need content for your own social networks or maybe even thinking about publishing yourself here is a selection of some of our main content sites, divided into recruitment and human resources.

Nearly every site below provides the option to sign up for a weekly email or RSS feed, it is worth signing up to all those that interest you and then gradually unsubscribe to those that don’t add value to your reading.

I subscribe to far more than these but this is a good selection to get anyone started. My own personal favorites are highlighted in bold.

Recruiting News Sites

ere.net – This site has a diverse range of posts, and is generally less opinionated that others
sourcecon.com
recruitingblogs.com & recruitingdaily.com
hirecentrix.com
fistfulofTalent.com – more opinionated than the mainstream news sites, FOT is more like an amalgamation of lots of personal blogs (in a good way)

theglobalrecruiter.com
fordyceletter.com
recruitmentbuzz.co.uk
onrec.com
therecruiterslounge.com

A special thanks to Jennifer McClure at Unbridled Talent because half way through this list I found her recent list of 25 HR & Recruiting Blogs, some of which were new to me and have since been added to my collection.

Please let me know if there is a site we have missed that you think should be on the list or if you have a blog of your own that you would like included.

Over the next month I’m also planning on making a list of great Twitter lists (I know lists of lists). The reason being that clients ask me how to find and engage with people on Twitter and the reality is that without good lists it can be very hard to get involved. If anyone has any great Twitter HR or Recruitment lists I would really appreciate you sharing them – chris.south@socialprominence.co

Tracking & Measurement

Monthly analytics reporting on campaign performance through platform analytics, data includes impressions, click rate, conversion rate, specific keyword and individual advert performance, landing page results and call metrics.

Conversion Rate Optimisation

It’s the most important element in a successful campaign and the old saying ‘you snooze, you lose’ is very apt and it’s where most fail. Using the analytics data we continue to test and refine the campaigns to increase conversation rates and therefore the results for your recruitment business.

This includes:

Phone Call Tracking

A large percentage of both Display and SEM generates phone calls to your recruitment business or individual recruiters. Because of this, usually this is where the ability to track return on investment ceases. However on all of our campaigns we enable a proprietary piece of technology that tracks and records each phone call. Not only can we now track the success of each call, we can give you access to the call recording platform to use the calls as training and service improvement tools.

×
Customised Landing Pages

A digital advertising campaign without a landing page is a bit like a candidate with an unexplained gap in their CV. There is a chance it will be ok, but also a big risk that it won’t. We use our own landing page tool to create customisable experiences that are centered on generating outcomes. They also allow us carry out conversion rate optimisation (CRO), to increase Google Quality Scores and to split (A/B) test different concepts.

×
Advert Design & Copywriting

The success and failure of a digital advertising campaign often relies on the quality of the advert itself. Using our in-house design and copywriting teams we’re able to create the very best visual and copy based adverts. This is across a range of mediums, from text and static images to moving GIF/HTML5 files and even video.

Research & Analysis

We use all the available tools and our recruitment industry experience to ensure we fully understand your business goals. As a certified Google Partner we are also able to produce industry insights created by our dedicated Account Managers within Google, which are directly passed on to you.
