What are your employees already saying about your company on the internet, and how can properly highlighting their voices attract more qualified applicants to your open jobs? As blogging grows in popularity, more and more employees are sharing their personal stories about corporate life, and these open conversations can both help and hurt your company’s employment brand.

In Part 2 of this 3-part series, you’ll join Gretchen Ledgard, the first corporate recruiting blogger, and Joel Cheesman, recipient of Recruiting.com’s 2006 Best Blog Award, as they share blogging experiences from across the employment industry and show you how to leverage employee blogs to attract top talent to your company. In this session you will learn how to –

  • Develop proper oversight of employee blogs (not recruiter blogs) to enhance (not hurt) a company’s reputation as a sought-after employer.
  • Develop a corporate Blog to effectively attract passive candidates, and increase your company’s search rankings with heightened corporate brand awareness through search engine optimization strategies.
  • Promote the candidate experience: educate prospective candidates on the application process (what to expect in an interview), and develop and identify your cultural brand.
  • Enhance the employment brand of your business groups, market corporate events such as job fairs, Corporate Technology Forums, conferences, trade shows.
  • Obtain better search engine rankings and attract passive candidates.
