When trying to land a job, hard work trumps talent says job hunting expert +Sputnik Sputnik. In this article he explains why he hired someone not based on their talent, but by her actions.

If you're looking to save time and money when  #hiring  without sacrificing the quality, read this advice from Chris Savage  on working out your non-negotiable criteria. 
#hiringadvice   #recruitment  
Stop wasting time when recruiting and when looking for roles. Get clarity early on what the four non-negotiable ‘must haves’ are for every role. For hirers and candidates, this provides the focus for ticking the most critical ‘fit’ boxes before wasting time and energy of matches that will never be made.

'The Brand Guy'  +Richard Sauerman  shows us a perfect example of Karma in action and why you should always be the best version of you.

#HR  needs to have strategic understanding of how #socialmedia  is used through the whole employment lifecycle. 
+Dionne Lew, CEO of The Social Executive explains why marketers must lead HR in the conversion to social and provides some key conversation starters 
Senior executives with little understanding of what it is often reject communicators who try to position social media. This is frustrating, but it increases responsibility for communicators to take a leadership role in educating C-suite executives about specific opportunities and threats. Take the lead, help them understand the potential benefits, and become socially savvy C-suites.
