Recruiting Brainfood 2.0 – our new website – will be launched next week, Feb 17th. Since we started this newsletter, our website has been an auto generated template created by the newsletter software. Good enough til now, but not good enough for us going forward!

There’s been some exceptional content about the topic of hiring Product Managers lately, but I’ve read nothing quite as exhilarating as this. That might be becauseKen Norton, writes like Anthony Bourdain, or maybe because he just knows what he’s talking about. It’s probably both. Long, brilliant read, soread it.
Outstandingly straightforward explainer on how bias can creep into the algorithm. There are no easy answers here, but an important read for anyone interested in at least beingcritically awareof the potential of bias in AI. Have a readhere
I get it – Blockchain has lost its cool, as blockchain investors have lost their money. But that doesn’t mean it’s application to the world of work is any less relevant. This overview of the potential of blockchain toorganise the next generationof business is somewhat technical but accessible enough for us casuals.
Been meaning to share this post for several months now. I’m glad I’ve rediscovered it. Valuable insight on the often traumatic experience of changing your identity at work. If you haven’t read this yet, do yourself a favour and do it now.
Superb resource by the ever resourcefulDenis Dinkevich, who has put together some raw content into this into interactive kanban board. It’s a massive list of 1:1 questions for managers and is a fabulous resource.Bookmark thisbecause at some point, you’re going to need it.
Apparently a leaked internal document from the UX team at Google, this is a guidance doc on landing page design, CTA’s and conversions. Should imagine it would interest quite a few of us here, especially if we care about recruitment marketing. H/T brainfooderMatthias Schmeißerfor the share. Download ithere.
Case study is on exec hiring, but the lessons of the process could be applied to any experienced hire. Especially like the ‘3 strengths’ approach, as well as early referencing. Great brainfood fromFirstRoundagain –enjoy it.
What size is big enough? Someone one said. It’s an argument made by those who might think they know more about statistics than perhaps they really do. This useful tool from Survey Monkey should come in handy for all us – keep it in your locker if you’re planning to run a survey or publish the results. H/T to ‘foodieAmleto Montinarifor the share
How do you secure budget for your recruiting strategy? Most of us will simply just fail at this, so we may do well to pay attention to this outstanding how-to series fromMary Grace Hennesey. I first sawpart 3in thefb group, but then followed the trail toparts 1andpart 2.I’d recommend reading all three.
I include this post from the New York Times technology team less for it’s recommendations (not sure I agree…), but more for the example of how being ‘open with your journey’ magically creates compelling content which functions are a job advert. Have aread– see what I mean?
