Indeed Everywhere: How to Leverage Social Media in Your Job Hunt
Looking for a job? Then you should know that employers are looking at you, too—or, at least 92% of them are, according to a survey on the role of social media in hiring today. In fact—as Bryan Chaney, Indeed’s director of employer brand recently told The Street—it’s pretty much recruiting 101 these days: “One of the first things a hiring manager will do is look you up on their favorite social network.” Some employers are even asking for Twitter handles and Instagram usernames as...

Report: Ageism in the Tech Industry
In many cultures, elders are held in high regard as a source of wisdom. In the world of tech, it often seems—not so much. These days, you don’t have to look far to find news stories about lawsuits, age bias, declining salaries after a certain age or other takes on this persistent problem. What was once tech’s “elephant in the room” is still the elephant in the room—but it’s making a lot more noise. But while stories about anxious tech workers in their 30s getting plastic surgery...

Indeed Everywhere: 5 Tips for Decoding Job Postings
We’ve all heard that we should adjust our resume to the type of position we’re applying for. Even so, when it comes to jobs that are similar, using a universal resume for applications may seem like a smart idea. Not so fast, says Paul Wolfe, Indeed’s SVP of Human Resources. The truth is, descriptions vary even among jobs that have a lot in common — and not taking into account the details of individual postings is a sure way to reduce your chances of landing an interview. So what are...

Battle of the Resumes: Indeed’s 2017 College Football Special
It’s college football time again—and while the NFL may have won the title of America’s favorite sport for the past 30 years, many fans would argue that the college variety is far more exciting to watch. After all, in college football the rivalries are intense, the games are less predictable, and a more enthusiastic group of fans would be difficult to find. Hall of Famer Marino Casem, a longtime coach and athletic administrator, famously summed up the experience like this: “On the East...

Employer Brand vs. Talent Brand: Why the Difference Matters
Maybe you’ve heard (or even used) the term “employer brand” without being completely sure what it means and how it’s different from the concept of “talent brand.” If so, I won’t tell anyone—and I’m here to help clear things up. Coined in 1996, employer brand is a relatively new niche that falls under the larger umbrella of talent attraction.

Focus On Nursing: A High Demand, High Growth Job of the Future
If you’re looking for a job of the future, then nursing is one of the strongest candidates out there. Although some aspects of the role may be susceptible to automation—in Japan scientists have developed a robot that can hand out medication and collect records—the central importance of empathy and advanced motor skills to nursing jobs makes it highly unlikely that machines will be replacing humans at our bedsides any time soon. But that’s not all: According to the 2014 U.S. Census Bureau...

4 Tips for Getting Great Results from Your Career Page
We’ve all been there—looking for openings on a company’s site only to find a poorly designed and out of date career page, possibly with a lone job on it that expired three months ago.
