This puts the power in job seekers’ hands, both in terms of plentiful alternatives and the ability...

How to Train for Grit: Transform Potential with These Targeted Strategies
Soft skills are often assumed to be inherent traits; either someone has them or they don’t, right? Wrong!

REPORT: The State of U.S. Salaries and Raises
Pay is a sensitive subject for employers and employees alike. But finding a happy medium between what job seekers want and what employers want to pay is vital to both talent attraction and retention. In spite of the current low unemployment rate, overall wage growth is expected to be slow in 2019. Salary budgets are projected to grow by just 3.2%, a slight uptick over 2018’s 3.1% increase. With the current inflation rate estimated at 1.6%, that means a wage increase barely proportionate to...

The United States of Hipster Jobs
In the years after the global economy fell in 2008, another trend seemed to be on the rise: “hipsters,” a subculture commonly defined by its rejection of all things mainstream. Journalists would have had us believe hipsters were taking over the country one kombucha pop-up and handlebar mustache at a time — and that their presence was partly to blame for the economic distress of the time. Aside from quirky shopping habits, hipsters were grouped with millennials (those born in 1981 through...

Relocation: The New Tech Hiring Strategy?
We’ve heard it many times: It’s tough to hire for tech talent. While this sector is a major employer, making up almost 10% of all US jobs, 86% of hiring managers and recruiters say it’s hard to fill these roles. To attract scarce talent, many tech companies offer increasingly unique benefits, such as on-site meals, lavish campuses and even subsidized fertility treatments for employees. But there’s another powerful perk that gets less attention: voluntary relocation, wherein existing employees...

How to Wrangle Your Inbound Recruitment Marketing Channels to Attract the Right Talent
Attracting talent used to be more cut and dried than it is now. If you were looking for talent, you would put an ad in the (actually physical) paper, or you’d depend on the word of mouth of suppliers and employees to get your request out there. Then along came the Internet, and it changed absolutely everything. Suddenly, there were job boards and search engines, social media and career sites, ratings sites, not to mention online ads. Today, employers looking to hire are faced with lots of candidates...
