Recruiting is broken.

So claims the opening slide for every recruiting tech vendor powerpoint since the dawn of Software-as-a-Service.

Bloomberg TV and Entelo Discuss Improving Workplace Diversity in Silicon Valley

March 20, 2015 at 2:56 PM Kathleen de Lara

Silicon Valley is notorious for being the homebase for many of the world's largest tech companies and an ever-growing population of emerging startups. On another front, the hub for leading innovation is also known for its less-than-impressive diversity reports exposing the underrepresentation of women and minorities in the workforce.

Facebook, Google, Twitter, Amazon, and Pinterest released their own diversity numbers in the last year, revealing the Valley's male-dominated industry and unmissable, unsuccessful initiatives to cultivate a mix of employees with diverse backgrounds.

In the midst of the ongoing conversations striving to solve tech's diversity problems, Entelo CEO Jon Bischke was featured on Bloomberg TV to discuss the algorithm already helping dozens of companies, including Microsoft, Facebook, and Yelp, meet their diversity initiatives – Entelo Diversity.

How to Tell When a Candidate Will Reject Your Offer

March 19, 2015 at 7:41 PM Kathleen de Lara

There are a few indicators of when a candidate is about to say no to an offer you’ve extended to them, and rather than running in circles waiting on someone stuck in the perpetual state of “maybe”, there are ways to identify someone who’s about to fall out of your funnel.

No matter how much a star a candidate may be, putting a halt on building your pipeline while waiting for a candidate’s response is never ideal or efficient.

What recruiters and hiring managers should generally look out for are candidates who self-select, push back, and delay the hiring process by choice.

Avoid breaking the hiring process and heed caution around candidates who express these behaviors after you’ve extended an offer.

March 17, 2015 at 10:41 AM Vivek Reddy

It’s tough to recruit engineers when you’re not technical.

We’ve all dealt with the challenge and it’s particularly difficult when you haven’t played the role or had exposure to the nitty gritty of what engineers do on a daily basis.

4 Cliches to Remove From Your Recruitment Messaging

March 16, 2015 at 12:16 PM Rob Stevenson

How many emails did you send last week? 10? 50? 100? How many of them received a response? Chin up, Recruiters. It's not entirely your fault. Some people aren't likely to respond no matter how good the email is. In these cases there's not much you can do except try and leave them with as warm a feeling about your personal outreach as possible, in the hopes of keeping things open for future contact. In too many cases, though, talent see one thing about a recruiting email and immediately send it to the trash. You've got to give your recruitment messaging the best chance at avoiding the trash can, and if you use any of the below tired, meaningless, impersonal cliches, you aren't doing yourself any favors.
