Our weekly WebMingle is designed to give you some insight into the puzzling world of HR technology, discuss news from around the world that we find interesting, talk about upcoming events in our industry, and provide insightful interviews with people of our industry – who they are, what they do and why you should care. The WebMingle has become the most popular live weekly Internet show in the HR technology industry!
So what is a WebMingle? It is a meeting over the web where we do some business, socialize and yes, we mingle over the web. Thus, a WebMingle.
The 50-minute WebMingle on October 23rd, the 41st in our WebMingle series, featured Keith Duarte, President, and Michelle Merckle, Client Development Specialist, of Data Frenzy, a job distribution and resume management company. Keith has tremendous insight and passion around the recruiting process and utilizing technology for the ultimate in efficiency when it comes to recruiting. We touched on a number of issues related to that including:
- How the company has evolved over the years
- How recruiting has evolved
- The impact of social networking on recruiting
- How social networking compares to job boards as it relates to recruiting
- Evaluating recruitment spending
- The value of metrics and reporting to companies as it relates to recruiting efforts
- Improving the quality of a job posting
- …and more
The HR Weasel did not show up this week and as you know, he no longer works in this building. We are hoping that he comes out of wherever weasels actually hide and makes an appearance on a future show.
