In an ironic turn, I was interviewed by the lovely people at +Bond International Software, Inc. about recruiting #Millennials ... My answers won't surprise those of you know my opinion on generational typecasting :D

Read about recruiting Millennials by emphasizing how jobs benefit their lives holistically and fulfill other priorities - on the Bond Blog.

New blog: Shock As Gen X'er Is Exposed As A #Millennial! #HR #recruitment

Nothing irks more than a gross generalisation, yet people are always doing it. Being an Aussie in London, I am forever being told, “Oh you Aussies are… ” something or other. Really? I’m just the same as all 23.8 million Australians? If it’s not race, it’s…
By Katrina Collier. The truth is out, I am a Millennial. No real surprise but how is age-typing or any gross generalisation holding back your recruitment?

I've suffered the worst and the best in my #recruitment  career. I cherish the kindness of those who were patient & helped me improve, and am blessed to count many as friends today. Who have you helped along the way?

Great post from +Joshua Jones over on +SourceCon

I may be having a rant but seriously, please stop connecting to fake #linkedin  profiles. Here's an easy way to spot & report them :) #socialmedia   #recruitment   #socialrecruiting  
Yes, this has been written about numerous times but I still see it going on from people who should know better!...and if you think being an open networker is a wise move, read this great piece by Kasia Borowicz: A Case Against Open Networking.It's so easy to work out if a profile is fake too!Here's an example:The profile contains little information, "he" has few connections, and there is no obvious reason for Oliver Helm to want to connect.Plus, ...

New blog >> Recruiter, Are You Worth Talking To? Truly?http://wp.me/p4F2qF-2CH #recruitment #HR

The world has become so incredibly noisy and demanding. Instant.   Last week I was chatting on Skype with a darling non-recruitment friend, unaware of what was going on in his world, when the stress of it all became too much. He snapped. It was out of…

Introduction

I'm a Social Recruiting Specialist: consulting, speaking, training and writing about the use of social media in recruitment, be it for hiring or job search. 

The social media explosion transformed the recruitment industry; I founded Winning Impression when I saw that there was little training or help around for companies who want to use social media to recruit time & cost-effectively, or for job seekers who want to use it to open job opportunities.

Companies learn how to incorporate recruiting on social media sites (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and a range of smaller & niche sites) into their hiring strategy via a range of training workshops delivered monthly or on their site:

Job seekers are empowered to use social media in their job search via

Social Recruiting blogger:

My social recruiting articles can be seen on The Muse, Winning Impression, at Social HireJobsite, The Work4 Blog,  and Computer Weekly. I also volunteer as a Business Expert at Working Knowledge, bridging the gap between education and the workplace.


I have a soft spot for dogs, especially my Chocolate Labrador and Springer Spaniel, and an obsession for using Instagram!

Creating engaging podcasts has been on my list of things to do for ages but it was regularly demoted due to time constraints & work pressures. Bringing Viv into the frame was such a smart move that I wish I'd done it much earlier. She made the process painless and seamless. Together we recorded podcasts which sound superb, are interactive and are extremely useful. Viv understands why audio is crucial to your business and she is professional, thorough and prepared. She knows how to ensure you and your business shines, I can't recommend Viv & Audio Byte highly enough.
