The 5 Biggest Lies Recruiters Tell Candidates

With the hiring market showing signs of life and the war for talent heating up, it was time to turn the tables for an honest look at the top lies recruiters tell candidates. Obviously, these statements are often true and crucially important when communicating with candidates. Most recruiters are honest and upfront with job seekers. Largely caring and committed, recruiters really care about every candidate. The bad news is that many of the most common put offs, while usually well-intentioned and largely innocuous, are as integrated with the recruiting process as applicant tracking systems. The good news? Avoiding these “worst practices” instantly translates into observing best practices, an improved candidate experience and an easy win for your employment brand.

The Existential Laws of Leadership

Monster 12 for 2012: Follow These Top HR & Recruiting Bloggers

In compiling the Monster 11 for 2011 list of Top HR and Recruiting bloggers to follow, we fell for the shiny statistics and cool tools which were emerging from the margins to the mainstream, taking a highly analytical and ostensibly objective approach to building our list of recommendations.
