I was for big data in HR before I was against it. This is why.

How to use big data in HR and recruiting

I was very fortunate to speak at the 2014 LinkedIn SourceIn event in New York last month. My topic was “I was for big data before I was against it.” Everyone was awake when I was done, so I added it to my “win” column. These are the points I addressed.

# Why are recruiters doing more posting and praying than ever before?
# Who are some masters of big data?
# How are companies using big data to improve their recruiting processes?
# How are companies using big data to improve office efficiency?
# Is big data really “the civil rights issue of our era?”
# What should companies worry about when it comes to using big data for recruiting purposes?
# Why does Jim ramble at times and get distracted so easily? (Seriously, that’s something I ask myself all the time and… squirrel!)

Tune in to the video below and let me know your thoughts? I would really appreciate it.

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?
