TheLadders reveals its most influential recruiters of Q4 2014.


2015 is the Year of the Recruiter at TheLadders. As TheLadders’ Community Manager, I’ve spent the majority of the New Year learning as much about our recruiter community as possible. I had the opportunity to engage with many of you firsthand and ask questions about your process as talent acquisition professionals. I found that your feedback, strategies and goals vary by region. With this in mind, we’ve reinvented our Top Recruiter list for the fourth quarter of 2014.

Working for a data-driven tech company, real-time usage from our more than 5 million members is posted on any wall that can handle the weight of a flat- screen TV. So, when I was walking to our kitchen on Thursday evening, my heart skipped a beat. Our site usage was visibly lower than usual. After grabbing the umpteenth Diet Coke of the day from our communal fridge, I remembered a story my father had shared recently.


Earlier in his career at a global financial institution, he and other executives almost made an expensive and hasty decision, based off of late-March data. However, that was until he remembered the effects (now, well-documented) of workplace productivity during March Madness. Unlike the masses watching their favorite college teams hit the hardwood*, we have spent the past few days monitoring both jobseeker and employer site usage. Are we, too, victims of this annual insanity?
