In this podcast:
01:34 | I am the voice of Olark
03:39 | You might want to write something that says, “hey, we’re hiring…”
05:49 | I spoke with someone recently who is using it heavily in their recruitment process
08:20 | How many people would I need to answer all the questions…
11:47 | If you get too busy or if you reach your limit on the number of chats…
13:37 | …chat will pop open if someone spends more than a minute on a page
15:00 | You’ll have a running list of all the transcripts…
17:40 | …with the express purpose of being aggravating or being a nuisance
18:50 | …23% of their placements in 2013 were started with live chat
20:38 | …based on their IP address you could block that person…
I received an LinkedIn inmail to reconnect with someone I had not seen in years. The way they reached out to me really caught my attention and I thought it would be a good practice for recruiters to follow suit. Tune in for more details. (And Doug, thanks for the compliments. The check is in the mail.) // Links related to this podcast: http://goo.gl/AtPH8R // Subscribe now!
