Candidate Sourcing 47
Do you know what is arguably the most important component of a job posting? The job title. That's a conclusion I've reached after conducting research on thousands of job postings. This may seem elementary, but it bears repeating: Before posting a job, you should have a clear idea of job titles in your industry and which job descriptions and qualifications they correspond to.
Creating a powerful job posting - one that not only captures job seekers' attention, but compels them to apply - is no small feat, given everything you need to communicate with very limited room to do so. Fortunately, the creatives at CareerBuilder have put together an infographic demonstrating what a powerful job posting looks like.
Sometimes the hardest part of running a race is getting started. Similarly, taking the first step across the starting line on a big project — like kickstarting your mobile recruitment strategy — can be intimidating. Luckily, you’re not alone in this journey.

If you’re saying, “Mobile recruitment is cool and power more to those who do it, but why should I care about it?” maybe you haven’t let some of these facts sink in.
Things you can do in 30 minutes or less: have a pizza delivered, squeeze in a power workout, and yes — even write a smashing job posting.
Innocently looking up a blind date on social media to make sure he’s
not a serial killer compatible is a fairly common thing to do. But what does social media have to do with hiring, you ask? As new research shows, it can have quite an impact in terms of swaying an employer’s decision — positively or negatively — of whether to hire a candidate.
What’s the one thing that has changed the hiring process more than any other factor? Technology. Hand-held technology, to be more specific. The increasing use of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablet computers, has changed not only the way job seekers search and apply for jobs, but how they interact with companies and their expectations during the job search and hiring process.
