Welcome back for Issue No8 of On Hiring! This week, I’m bringing you the usual curate’s egg of recruiting goodness with reports, resources, news, cool tools and cooler techniques that might us all get better in the week ahead.
Check out our new section –Who’s Hiring– at the end of the newsletter. This might become a regular feature if we get enough content – a place where On Hiring subscribers can freely advertise their recruitment job openings to an audience which cares about the industry. Get in touch in you have job openings you want to feature next week.
Hope you enjoy Issue No8. Don’t forget, sharing is caring, so spend a second and ping it out on Twitter or share with a friend who might get value from it.
Thank you for your support!
