What the Science of First Impressions Can Tell Us About Recruiting

This is the first in a series of ten posts on hiring candidates for characteristics linked to high performance. Each post focuses on a key candidate trait, why it matters and how recruiters can develop processes to correctly and fairly evaluate for it.

So, over the course of the next few months, we’ll publish a post on each trait from that post, beginning with first impressions. (If you want to see the other nine traits, check out the original post here.)

First impressions play a dominant role in society. Every day, impressions impact numerous interactions, influence how we feel about those interactions, drive many of our opinions, and in general, influence how we engage with the world.

Recruiters are Business Partners: Entelo Head of Recruiting Britt Ryan

Announcing the 2017 Entelo Recruiting Trends Report

Earlier this year, Entelo surveyed more than 740 talent acquisition professionals and leaders from around the world to identify the trends and innovations driving the recruiting and hiring industry forward.

9 Newsletters and Blogs to Make You a Smarter Recruiter

Content is the currency of the internet. Yet there’s so much out there these days, that finding interesting, relevant and, most importantly, curated articles is a full-time job. If you’re like us, you don’t have a ton of time to comb the World Wide Web every day, but you still want to read the good stuff. The goal, after all, is to find the right information, not all of the information.

Newsletters are the single best way to see the best stuff from every corner of the internet in one place. They’re like content cheatsheets. Blogs are a similar, slightly more exhaustive version of newsletters. Both deliver the interesting and relevant intel straight to your inbox in witty, readable, clever nuggets.

But picking the right content resource is like picking the right cable package; it all depends on your interests and habits. Sign up for too many and you’ll spend more time stressing over what to read than actual reading. 

Here are my favorite newsletters and blogs. They cover every facet of my life, including my love for current events, technology, recruiting, business, and productivity. Reading them will no doubt make you smarter and better informed, but they’ll also give you fuel and inspiration for those rainy days when you’ve run out of ideas.

How Bill Boorman Would Make Hiring and Recruiting Less Shoddy

Bill Boorman, #tru conferences founder and recruiting industry luminary, joined Entelo CEO Jon Bischke and host Rob Stevenson in the Hiring On All Cylinders studio for a conversation about the future of recruiting technology. They chatted about the rise of artificial intelligence in hiring, the underappreciated importance of conversations with candidates, and why employee value propositions mean giving people the opportunity to find more enjoyable, meaningful work.

Women in Leadership Share Challenges of Workforce Diversity, Pillars of Success

Being a woman in the workforce lends itself to unique challenges. While many companies support gender diversity, workplace equality remains an initiative yearning for action.  

So often the picture painted for working women isn’t favorable. We’re 15% less likely than men to be promoted, earn less than men for same roles, and continue to be professionally underrepresented, holding under 30% of roles in senior management. Evidently, at the current pace, it’ll take longer than a century before there’s gender equality in the C-suite.

If you’re like me, reading through that might have been mentally exhausting. Good news about women in the workforce can be few and far between. That’s discouraging, especially in the midst of groups taking action on diversity and inclusion, like Project Include, Catalyst, Code2040, Lean In, and Paradigm, just to name a few.

In light of this, we’re drawing the attention back to the power of potential, and narratives of growth. Entelo’s Reflect, Grow, Empower will share lessons on being bold and resilient, as told by women leaders in tech. Leading up to our panel, we spoke with speakers Linqia’s Maria Sipka, Floodgate’s Ann Miura-Ko, and Decker Communications’ Hilary Davis to learn more about their pillars of inspiration, success, and hustle.

These Five Seth Godin Insights Will Help You Recruit Better

Recruiting is a tough job and hiring is a front line business function. You’re the first point of contact for a lot of people, which means recruiting has a lot more in common with sales and marketing than it does with other HR functions.

It’s nothing new that recruiters need to think like marketers, and thinking outside the traditional recruiting box is one way to make that a reality. That’s where Seth Godin turns into a handy fount of recruiting wisdom.

Why Performance-based Hiring Builds a Lean Team, as told by Lou Adler

Lou Adler joins Hiring On All Cylinders to share a sneak peek of his webinar later this week. Best known for his Performance-based Hiring methodology, Lou emphasizes the importance of recruiters seeking out growth in candidates' career trajectories, not just the right skills or experiences. This helps talent teams identify the best performers driven by challenges, the opportunity to evolve their skill sets and develop with their org in the long run. In this episode, Lou breaks down the performance-based hiring model, and why orgs too often focus on the wrong metrics to track good fit candidates.

Lessons from HR Tech: Candidate Transparency, Employer Branding, and the Future of Hiring

As the official podcast of the HR Technology Conference & Expo, Hiring On All Cylinders was at the heart of the action as thousands of recruitefrs and talent acquisition pros descended on Chicago’s McCormick Place.

With such an unrivaled group of talent acquisition thinkers, practitioners, analysts, entrepreneurs and all-around smart people in one place, Hiring on All Cylinders was on a mission to talk to as many of them as possible. And boy did we.

Over the course of three days, a veritable who’s who sat down to chat with the Entelo team on HOAC. Everyone from RecruitingDaily’s Matt Charney to Analyst Naomi Bloom to The Muse CEO Kathryn Minshew and even HR Tech founder Bill Kutik dropped by the booth to share their thoughts, impressions, ideas and opinions on the trends and challenges in the wide world of HR technology.

Entelo’s Must Follow Talent Acquisition Influencers

Staying on top of hiring trends isn’t easy.  As much as the fundamentals of the industry remain the same, the tools, best practices, industry standards and technological innovations evolve at a mind-boggling rate. If you’re a recruiter with your head down working on tough to fill roles, tracking the industry as a whole can seem impossible or a waste of time.

But it’s not; it’s essential. Recruiters are competing against one another for the best talent. A competitive advantage comes from being better informed and smarter than the competition, and that’s why it’s crucial to stay plugged into the wider world of recruiting. You can’t stay ahead of the curve with your head in the sand.

Every day people are pushing the industry forward and hiring the best candidates in new, better ways. Oftentimes, they share their insights, knowledge, and observations on a multitude of channels. With all of this information swirling around, a recruiter needs to know how to cut through the noise. That’s where this list will come in handy.

How Collaboration, Integrity and Grit Power Entelo’s Sales Team

Hiring for any role can be a challenge, but sales hires can be the most complex. A great salesperson is personable, relentless, and positive. They are also a quick thinker who can read a room in just a few seconds and explain complicated topics quickly and persuasively. They know the art of the soft sell, how to perform the discovery process when a lead is totally disinterested, and when to know if someone is blowing you off or just playing hard to get.
