Beginning this week and continuing each subsequent Friday, Entelo will bring you a round-up of the week's most compelling recruitment-related tweets. Not just limited to top recruiting influencers, we will look to include generic commentary and reactions from all sorts of folks as they discuss their experiences with the recruiting industry.

This tweet includes a detailed flow chart projecting career progression for recruiting pros along each of the HR, In-house, and Agency paths. A must-see for any young recruiting pro!
“Hi [name]! I found you on [website] and was impressed by [bullet point on resume]. I think you’d be a great fit for [company].” #recruiters
— Kevin Thompson (@kevinthompson) January 17, 2014
Kevin's tweet highlights a practice that consistently turns talent off to your recruiting efforts. Although it can be difficult to veer from templates when you're reaching out to several dozen candidates a day, remember that a little personalization can go a long, long way.
— Top Choice Resumes (@TopChoiceResume) January 16, 2014
Although this tweet was aimed more at job seekers, it does serve to re-emphasize a good point for recruiters. When trimming a torrent of inbound interest down to a manageable amount of resumes, it makes sense to remove the candidates who did not seem fired up enough about your company to tailor it specifically to the position or company.

Just a friendly reminder that job boards can account for almost 1/5 of all your hires. If you haven't been making a presence on top job boards and regularly optimizing your posts, you are severely missing out.

There was much discussion this week on the importance of making compelling, exciting job posts that illuminate company culture. Here, rather than promising 'a great opportunity' or 'catered lunches and ping pong', Dwane uses some humor to reel in candidates.
