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.

Google Plus Recruiting: You should be doing it! This is why…

Let Jim Stroud train you on how to recruit with Google Plus

It is my opinion that recruiters are sleeping on Google Plus. It is simply too big and too useful to be ignored. I give a few tips on how to leverage Google Plus for a recruitment advantage, but if you want more than that, look me up! I LOVE talking about Google Plus and welcome the chance to train you and/or your group of recruiters on its many virtues. Cool?

And oh, if we are not already networked together, connect with me on Google Plus as well. 😉

Big thanks to Dice for featuring me in their interview series. One love.

Recruiting: Its not all about social!

With only a few seconds before her presentation, Sarah White was gracious enough to grant me an interview at the Social Recruiting Strategies Conference about what she learned and what she shared with others. One key takeaway, “Its not all about social.” Lesson learned: Don’t be so caught up in social that you neglect other steps in the recruiting process.

A Social Recruiting Strategies Conference recap is given by Autumn McReynolds. Listen in to what she learned. The least of which, when it comes to social recruiting, content is not king. Conversation is.
