Culture is King: Companies with the Best Culture in 2017
Building a strong company culture can have lasting positive effects for your organization. Not only does great culture have the power to boost satisfaction for current employees, but it can attract the type of talented individuals who share your company’s values. And with more organizations focusing on the employee experience, you risk falling behind if you don’t make culture a priority. But what exactly does it mean to have great culture? Despite what some people believe, it amounts to more...

Weird Job Titles: The Year in Review
Weird and wonderful job titles have been making headlines for some time now. The tech world in particular provides a rich source of exotic monikers applied to jobs that might otherwise sound a bit less thrilling. Few companies may have a Security Princess like Google, or a “Galactic Viceroy of Research Excellence” as Microsoft once did, but it’s not unheard of to spot jedis, ninjas, gurus, mavens, overlords, dynamos, vigilantes and superheroes popping up in the job listings. Nor is it just...

Indeed Resume Employer Subscriptions: How the New Model Will Work
In today’s hiring landscape, it pays to be proactive when sourcing talent. To help recruiters take control of their hiring efforts, we launched Indeed Resume, a database searchable by industry, education, title and location in 2011. Since then, Indeed Resume—which is completely free for job seekers to create or upload their resume—has grown enormously: up from one million searchable resumes at the end of 2011 to over 100 million today. With 2.6 million new resumes added each month, and a...

Report: Employer Outlook 2018
We’ve all heard that the U.S. unemployment rate is at its lowest level in over a decade. That’s good news, of course. But as employers, we also know that this is the kind of good news that makes our own jobs just that extra bit tougher. It’s not just that competition for talent is fierce. We have to contend with a lot of other things, too: whether it’s the economic ups and downs of our respective industries, or the new technologies that are transforming the workplace, leading to demand...

Skip The Turkey! I "Have" to Work!
Thanksgiving. . . it’s a time of, well, giving thanks. A time to break bread together, and forget our differences and focus on what we are thankful for. Unfortunately, according to a recent Nexxt survey (we partnered on with Chad & Cheese), many people would avoid the family get together if they could.Our advice? If the recently arrived European Pilgrims and the native Americans could come together to celebrate, we can as well. So Happy Thanksgiving to all the job seekers and recruiters...

The Best Retail Companies to Work For in 2017
Today there is no doubt that the retail sector is going through a period of change and disruption. As a result, the stories we read in the media are often very dramatic. We’ve all heard about the store closures from major retailers such as JCPenney, Radioshack, Sears and Macy’s. Spooky photos of abandoned shopping malls have become media staples. But there is also good news. At the Annual Global Retailing Conference, Goldman Sachs reported that 76% of retail companies it surveyed had earnings...

Report: Indeed Delivers 3 Times More Hires Than All Other Canadian Job Sites Combined
Finding the right job is one of the most important things we can do. It’s about more than just identifying the right career path and making some money. Whether or not you’re satisfied at work impacts our family life and happiness, too. And for employers, matching candidates to the roles best suited to them can mean the difference between success and failure. In short, job search and recruitment are just too important to get wrong. So who do job seekers and employers trust most to get it right? Applicant...

Recruiter Challenge: Luring Quality Candidates to More Affordable Cities
Recruiters, beware! In a recent survey conducted by Nexxt, 63% of job seekers said that they would rather earn less but live in a smaller, more affordable city. But don’t think that you’re getting off so easy, salary is still the first thing they consider when accepting a new job. So how do you convince them that salary isn’t everything?In those hard to staff places away from major metropolitan areas a major selling point is a low cost of living and few people consider how it could actually...

The Year in Job Search: A Look at Trends Around the World in 2017
Each year, we at Indeed like to take a look back at trends in job search to see what was on the rise and what was on the decline. Patterns in what job seekers are looking for tell us a lot not only about the world of work but also cast light on broader social trends, too. For 2017, however, we decided to take it to another level and investigate trends on a global scale, to find out what was on the minds of job seekers in multiple countries, from the US to France to India to Australia. While...

SALARY SPOTLIGHT: Which Jobs Pay Over $100,000?
Money is a sensitive subject. Many of us are taught from an early age that it’s impolite to talk about it, while in the workplace, negotiating a salary is also a delicate matter. Ask for too much and you might lose an opportunity; ask for too little and you’ll be paying for your mistake for years to come. Even so, job seekers need to do research to find out what they’re worth. But employers also need to keep up with salary rates to remain competitive in the hunt for talent. Of course, some...

The Job Search Black Hole: 3 Ways Recruiters Can Improve the Candidate Experience
If you’ve ever flown with a one-year-old, then you know it can get pretty stressful. But if you’ve ever flown solo with a one-year-old, then you’ll know it’s a whole other level of stress. Recently I had to fly on a solo mission with my daughter, all the way from Austin to New York. How did it go? Let’s just say that my daughter wasn’t too keen on the whole flying thing. And she was, well… vocal about it. However, what could have been a truly terrible experience was transformed...

The 25 Most Attractive Companies for Job Seekers in 2017
Every firm wants to attract great talent. But not all companies are as successful at winning the attention of job seekers. Here, many factors are in play: from company reputation, to wages, to perceptions of a firm’s future. For some job seekers, gaining new skills is key; for others, it’s culture. For some, length of commute may be a deal breaker. Meanwhile, the fact that 2017 saw the lowest unemployment numbers in over a decade has made an already competitive talent landscape only more...

The Leaders of Leadership: Companies with the Best Management in 2017
When you think about what makes a company appealing to prospective employees, you might point to benefit packages, salary ranges, workplace perks and company culture. But there’s something that can be still more impactful than free lunches, generous PTO and — yes — even those foosball tables in the break room: the company’s management style. Not only can a manager’s approach potentially shape an employee’s career trajectory, but it plays a huge role in whether that person dreads coming...

Quality, Not Quantity: Why Employers Prefer Targeted Job Applications
We all know that searching for a job can be frustrating, and that sending in applications is only the start of a process that can include a lot of waiting. And waiting… And waiting… And then, well—maybe you never hear back. In this all-too-familiar scenario, lots of people may wonder what has happened to their application. Has a human being even seen it, or was it lost in some mechanical process? The curious case of the job application robot Recently, I read an interesting article by...

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...
