Guest Roundup by Alston Chiang, Customer Success Manager at ConveyIQ

At 23, I was a hiring manager.
At 25, I was a job seeker.
Now, at the age of 28, I am looking to change the world of recruiting.
In recruiting, we make the comparison between interviewing and dating. I believe there is truth in this. There’s courting that needs to be done and people often forget that even the smallest touch point can make a lasting impact.
So I pose this question: Why are employers expecting candidates to divulge all the information without giving candidates content to bite on? When you’re dating or getting to know someone, do you just rely on one party to ramble for 30 minutes? Both parties want to feel special, and as you start thinking about hiring in 2018, here are 3 articles I believe can help you attract and retain better talent.

5 employer branding myths that are holding you back
Perception is reality! It is important that every company has a branding strategy. Each company has it’s own personality. Make sure you are showcasing the right one. As a LinkedIn alumni, I believe the LinkedIn platform allows you to reach individuals in a business mindset. Don’t be shy – put your thoughts and brand out there!

Shortening time-to-hire is a priority for growing companies
Do you need to go on 10 dates to assess fit and interest? For many employers, a long hiring process means losing top tier talent. Quality talent is either extremely active on interviews or not looking at all. Don’t make it difficult for candidates to learn about you!
