Roundup: This Week’s Top Recruiting Stories From Around The Web

Recruiting news this week: how Twitter is influencing recruiting, how to manage the hard-to-fill positions, and how to make LinkedIn endorsements worthwhile.

The New Résumé: It’s 140 Characters
Twitter is becoming the new job board. It is also becoming the new résumé. Fed up with traditional recruiting sites and floods of irrelevant résumés, some recruiters are turning to the social network to post jobs, hunt for candidates and research applicants. Job seekers, in turn, are trying to summarize their CVs in 140 characters or six-second videos. 

Hiring? 3 Reasons to Reconsider Your ‘Rejects’ Pile
A recent study suggests you might need to toss out old notions of who’s the best fit for the job. Think you know all there is to know about hiring? A new trove of data from the analytics firm Evolv’s quarterly workforce report suggests three reasons that might make you want to take a second look at your “rejects” pile.

The Biggest Trends in Talent Management and HR
I recently had the opportunity to participate in an Argyle Conversation by Argyle Executive Forum. I enjoyed to give and take very much, and appreciated the chance to close out the discussion with a look into the future on major trends coming for HR and talent management.

Employers Pursuing Alternative Talent Pools for Hard-to-Fill Positions
Nearly half of employers (47 percent) say they usually or always hire candidates who have held the same job title as the position they’re hiring for, according to recent CareerBuilder study. While this approach may work well for employers looking to fill positions with worker surpluses, pursuing alternative talent pools may be the answer for in-demand roles.

6 Ways to Make LinkedIn Endorsements Worthwhile
Can we just talk about LinkedIn for a moment? I use LinkedIn for a variety of reasons, most notably to connect with other professionals for the chance to land new business or have a place to look for a job (should I ever get back into the employment game).

Smart Employers Know: Unemployed Does Not Mean Unemployable
The more we learn and discuss the impending skills gap, the more we’re hearing about companies that are doing their best to combat it and reskill workers. While some companies have focused on external outreach programs, others have created in-house training and development programs.

How to Impress Candidates
Recruiters get a bad rap, even when the companies they work for are great. But it can be a tough (albeit rewarding) job to do when you live in a flyover state, don’t have work-flex to offer and well…you’re not the biggest brand in the fun house (employer or otherwise). What do candidates want?
