Jason Averbook, CEO of Leapgen and longtime industry thought leader joins Hiring on All Cylinders co-hosts Britt Ryan and Sean Simerly to share his views on what the future has in store for HR and recruiting technology. As a consultant and advisor to enterprises across the globe with experience at some of the largest vendors in the space,  Averbook is a leading voice on the technological trends and developments shaping the industry.

Letting Candidates Down Easy: The Art of the Break Up Call

The worst part of a recruiter’s job is telling candidates you’re not moving forward with them. It’s understandable why many recruiters take the easy way out by sending generic rejection emails to candidates. But there’s a better way. Entelo senior business recruiter Amina Moinuddin endeavors to call every single candidate who makes it past the initial phone screen. These calls, even if they only last 45 seconds, are an integral part of the Entelo hiring process and go a long way towards ensuring that each and every candidate has a great experience, whether or not they get hired.

Why Accountability is Key to Effective Recruiting

This is the tenth and final post in our series on hiring candidates with characteristics linked to high performance. Each post focuses on a single key trait, why it matters and how recruiters can develop processes to correctly and fairly evaluate candidates for it.

So far, we’ve covered the science of first impressions, hiring for personality versus character, how to hire committed candidates, how to find motivated candidates, how to hire collaborative individuals, how to hire passionate candidates, finding candidates with the right skillset for your role, the value of growth-minded candidates, and why freethinkers are awesome hires for every company.

You’ve probably heard this phrase before: Success has many parents, but failure is an orphan. Besides the fact that everyone shirks blame, what does it mean? It means true accountability is hard. It’s easy to take credit for success, but hard to take ownership of failure. That goes for individuals and organizations, and it’s why accountability is so important for successful organizations. But it’s a tough nut to crack.

How Strong Employer Branding Makes Recruiting Easier

When someone pictures what it’s like to work at your company, what do they see? Is it a positive image? Are there elements that are off-putting? Do they even think about you at all?

Once you ask yourself these questions, you’re on your way to figuring out your employer brand.

Employer brand is one of the most important, yet often slippery and intangible, ways a candidate will evaluate your organization. A strong employer brand makes your life as a recruiter much easier. Here’s why:
