A minority of Americans still have trouble using online resources
- See more at: http://www.shrm.org/hrdisciplines/staffingmanagement/articles/pages/online-job-searching-doubled.aspx#sthash.kLMaO9B6.dpuf

Recruiting Is A Pain In The Neck...from @recruitdc's own Kathleen Smith
As much as recruiting pros like to talk about the tech talent shortage, every time I talk with any top tech professional, they express an equal frustration.

Every moment of your interview should demonstrate how safe hiring you will be. https://lnkd.in/bNuVi7k @staffingadvisors
Don't forget that interviewing is not just performance art. It should also be an exercise in risk management.

Introduction

My official bio - you know - the one they want for speaking gigs and the like: 

As the Director of Strategic Recruiting at Staffing Advisors, Kelly is the resident expert at finding candidates, particularly online.  Over the last 8 years she has trained thousands of HR and Recruiting professionals in online candidate search (aka sourcing).   Because of this expertise, she has spoken at local and National HR related events, conducted multiple social recruiting webinars for BLR and is a featured writer for the talent management blog “Fistful of Talent.”  She has been sought out by publications like CNN Money, The Washington Post, Workforce Management, HR Magazine and Mashable.com as a result of her sourcing and social media expertise.  Prior to joining Staffing Advisors, Kelly held sourcing and human resource positions with AIRS, Thales Communications, Telecommunications Techniques Corporation (JDSU) and others.

A note from Kelly: Occasionally, the organizations I speak at like to make a charitable donation in my name as a way of saying thank you.  If you'd like to do that, awesome, I love it.  You will make me very happy if you donate to DonorsChoose.org

We had a great experience with Kellie...Her knowledge of photography, lighting and Hilton Head gave us some amazing family photos. Everyone looks good! We were able to do so much in just an hour. The follow up view appointment was easy too - I was worried - I knew we'd taken alot of photos. But Kellie had everything queued and made it simple to compare photos so we chose ones everyone in our family would love. It was a great experience...I'm definitely keeping her in mind for future photo moments.
