What are you reading? I was recently inspired by the recent post of ’10 Best Barclay Jones Blogs of the Year’. It’s a great round up of their most popular blogs. I was interested in reviewing the blogs for Adapt and seeing what seems to really resonate with our readers. Take a look at the round up below!

1. What should a recruitment software implementation look like?

projectSo you’ve been tasked with reviewing your current recruitment software. Or perhaps you are still using Excel spreadsheets as a CRM system for your staffing agency. Before you get distracted by all of the bells and whistles you will no doubt be shown, it’s important to know what the entire journey of selecting a new software will look like. Making the decision of which software to purchase is really the easy part. It’s what follows that needs additional thought, focus and effort.

 2. Three ways to make recruitment software training engaging

Getting the right mix of engaging material yet establishing an informative basis to maximise training can be tricky. So how do you turn a course from drab to fab?

 3. LinkedIn Request Etiquette – avoiding boring & bland

LinkedIn_Offices_2How many times have you seen the same LinkedIn request? It’s the bland, boring, and standard request message sent by so many of us. In the grand scheme of things, there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s just a little meaningless when the recipient knows that no thought has gone in to it. You simply clicked Connect. Consider an active job seeker who receives several requests a week from a recruiter. Don’t you want your message to stand out?

 5. Mobile Recruitment Technology is Keeping the World Spinning

In addition, 66% of respondents would apply for a job via mobile if the process was simplified – so what does that mean for recruiters?

 6. 5 Migration Myths – understanding & moving recruitment software data

data moveA key question when implementing new software is what to do with your current data. Unless you are using pen and paper, you have candidates, clients and contacts in a different system. Moving that data from one system to another requires a migration engineer to perform the process. Let’s try and dispel a few myths!
