There are so many recruitment blogs (you are reading one of them) available to the recruitment professional.
However, sticking to these blogs only is like having your blinkers on. As you will miss so many other relevant tips on marketing, leadership, etc.
Staying on top of industry trends is practically a requirement nowadays in a field that’s so technically driven. It’s important to think outside of your sphere and be on top of all other verticals so you can do your best work.
That’s why this diverse list of non recruitment blogs might prove extremely beneficial to you. Helping you master the dozens of things that go alongside recruiting that most recruitment blogs never touch on.
These are the general topics in each blog for quick reference:
#1 – Duct Tape Marketing.
Regardless of the niche or industry you are working in, marketing is a big part of your job as a recruiter.
From keyword research and basic SEO to get your listings found to step-by-step guides about building the most effective social ad campaigns. This blog will be helpful for any recruiter.
#2 – The Buffer Blog.
The Buffer app is already very well-known as a super handy automation tool for your social media marketing. But their blog is perhaps even more useful to recruiters.
#3 – Spin Sucks.
While this blog has lots of tidbits of relevant info for recruiters spread throughout. The main parts to focus on include the marketing, SEO, and Public Relations sections that will help you with your recruiting strategies.
#4 – Social Media Examiner.
On this list, the Social Media Examiner might be one of the best examples of not judging a book by its cover.
Although the design may leave some things to desire, the information offered is some of the most helpful around.
