It's recruiting brainfood for the week ahead

Hey Everyone, 

So it’s a pretty big week ahead for us all as US goes to the ballot box this weekend. It’s incredible to see an outsider like Donald Trump in with a chance of the biggest job in the world. We all wish our friends in the US the best - may you choose wisely!

It’s also been a big news week in the world of recruiting. Monster / Randstad deal finally gets done. Dice more or less puts itself up for sale. LinkedIn bangs out a new product (salary predictor) whilst quietly withdrawing another (Booleans search on Recruiter Lite) and Indeed continues its invasion into everyone’s market with a launch of another product, this time a crowdsourced referral play. All this and more in this weeks On Hiring, along with the usual content on diversity, decision making, economics and the future of work. 

It’s On Hiring: recruiting brainfood for the week ahead.
