CAREEREALISM Announces Weekly #InboundRecruiting Chat

Hampton, N.H. (April 7th, 2015) - CAREEREALISM, a career advice and employment branding site, hosts an Inbound Recruiting Twitter chat every Wednesday at 12PM EST. The goal of the weekly twitter chats is to raise awareness about inbound recruiting strategies that help employers attract the right job candidates to their current job openings. Inbound Recruiting strategies try to “sell” jobs to target job candidates by becoming a part of the job search process.

Why Is Inbound Recruiting Important?

  • Inbound recruiting makes it simpler for the candidates you want to hire to find you!
  • Inbound recruiting helps candidates envision themselves in a position with your company!
  • Inbound recruiting makes the decision simple because it lets candidates know when they are the right fit for your job and your culture!
The national time-to-fill average is 25 days. That’s the longest time-to-fill average in 13 years. Did you know that, 28% of HR managers are focused on improving the candidate experience? Founder & CEO of CAREEREALISM, J.T. O’Donnell stated:
“Today, we would laugh at any business that said it didn’t need to educate potential customers about them as a way to earn their trust and respect. The internet and the information age has created a new, more sophisticated consumer of products and services. The talent you seek to fill your positions are no different - they’re consumers of your company’s employment brand. If you aren’t educating them using inbound recruiting tactics to capture their interest in working for you, then your company is missing out on a valuable opportunity to fill its talent pipeline - and losing good candidates to your competitor in the process!”

Employee loyalty is something every company longs for. It's estimated employee turnover costs as much as 130-200% of an employee's salary. When a talented, knowledgeable, trained employee leaves, it's bad for business. And, when lots of them leave, it can be the kiss of death.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the interview situation one of our viewers, Remi submitted. He was in an interview and was asked the question: How many cows are there in Canada right now? - What a weird question but this is a technique that some hiring managers are using these days.

If you saw our first video, you might have heard about the awkward situation one of our viewers, Kevin submitted. He is a college student who's working a part time job to make ends meet. The manager/owner of the company has become a micro-manager who watches him work on camera and reads his company emails. A bit over the top wouldn't you say?
