As a pioneer in the recruitment industry, TheLadders has worked with employers around the country to find the right person for the right job. While we aim to make the process as easy as possible, we recognize that job-matching success relies heavily on a committed hiring team, and with more than 67,000 recruiters and employers in our network, it’s safe to say that the level of commitment varies from professional to professional.

That said, it is important for us to recognize and celebrate the people who contribute to our success in each of our key markets. Early last year, I announced the launch of a new program for employers -- TheLadders ELITE, which initially kicked off in New York, and expanded to San Francisco and Chicago, Atlanta and Boston. The program celebrates a short list of exceptional employers in our most popular recruiting markets, representing the top 1 percent of our users. Each ELITE employer is hand-selected, based upon their TTM performance (Trailing Twelve Months, immediately prior to the list’s announcement), while demonstrating outstanding citizenship within TheLadders’ community.

In June, the program will once again come to San Francisco. When it comes to employers and recruiters in this city by the bay, the 1 percent below has gone above and beyond to be amongst TheLadders ELITE! 

Join us at JobMobile San Francisco on Tuesday, June 10 to celebrate the 2014 honorees.

How to spot the best recruiters for your business

Posted by Guest Contributor

April 24, 2014 @ 10:00 AM

Having a great recruitment professional on your side can help to shape your company. Here’s how to spot the best ones. 

handshake

Having a great recruiter in your corner can make hiring simple. Everyone should have at least one go-to recruiter that becomes their career partner in crime. Someone who has known you for years, tracks your career and business, provides advice just to be a nice person, and knows your personality and quirks when it’s your turn to hire. I’m not talking about the used car salesman type that only remembers you when they need you. I’m talking about a professional that is your sounding board, keeps you in mind and calls you when something of interest comes in, and knows your career motivations and passions. 

Fetch came up with this “List of Qualities that make Successful Recruiters” as part of our internal hiring process. Here I’m sharing a slightly modified version of it, since I’m often asked how someone can assess a good recruiter (whether you are a client or a candidate). There are nuances depending on which side of the hiring equation you are on, but the basics apply regardless. Be on the lookout for these qualities. The ones that are soft in nature are obviously harder to gauge (The Soft Stuff), but there are also three solid tangible barometers (The Hard Stuff) you can use.

Responsive web design: The one question for businesses to consider

Posted by Guest Contributor

March 26, 2014 @ 08:49 AM

JobMobile NYC panelist Jay Woodruff of Affinity Resource Group shares his organization's transition to a mobile-responsive website.

Affinity_Resource_GroupHere’s the only question you need to answer in deciding whether to move to a responsive-designed website:

Do you want to stay in business?

About two-thirds of Facebook users now gain access via mobile devices, and for sites like Pandora and Instagram, the number is approaching 100 percent. As more and more people migrate to mobile as their primary access to digital information, you can't afford to not put your best face forward on portable devices.

At Affinity Resource Group, our recruiting practice focuses on digital technologists, so for us the move was a no-brainer. And still we dragged our feet. Our website is important, but it is not our primary revenue driver, so during those first couple of years we were focused on establishing relationships, attracting clients, and making placements.
