A Ridiculously Easy Way Netflix Recruiters Can Keep Their Candidates Warm

Jim StroudI love me some Netflix. Such being the case, I have an emotional investment in its success. That being said, I want to share an idea on a recruitment strategy that could benefit Netflix for the life of the enterprise. Intrigued? If so, read on.

Let’s imagine that you have applied for your dream job at Netflix. At some point, you would have volunteered your email so Netflix could contact you later. Should you login into Netflix with the same email you used to apply for a job, you would get additional choices. Check out my mockup below.

Recruitment strategy for Netflix

Clicking the “Jobs at Netflix” option would connect you to a special landing page showcasing jobs relevant to your background and videos promoting the culture of the company. How cool is that? Now, I realize that some would prefer not to have the “Jobs at Netflix” choice on their profile and I can understand why. What if a co-worker stops by to see your new big screen TV?

“Hey,” they say. “When I login to Netflix I don’t see a jobs option. Why do you have one?”

Awkward.

So, should this strategy be enacted, Netflix should give users the ability to turn off the “Jobs at Netflix” button. They should also send them an email before the button is live on their profile along with an explanation of how it got there. Make sense?

What do you think of this idea?

How Recruiters (should) Jobhunt on Google

find jobs on the hidden job market

Did you know that there are more than 100,000 job boards out there? This means that there are jobs being posted online on job boards you are unaware of. Fortunately for you, Google indexes a lot (if not all) of them. Yet, how does one search all of those job boards? Well, I might have the answer.

Below is a list of search strings for finding jobs on Google. It is designed for recruiters who are looking for work, but anyone can use them. Simply change the word “recruiter” to whatever job title. Make sense?

Good luck with your job search!

Jim

P.S. Feel free to pass this around to any and all concerned. No need to ask permission. Go ahead and share it. (But you cannot sell it.)
