Gamification is an innovative approach to engaging the right talent, and it works by encouraging these talents to engage in game-like behaviors and situations in non-game applications and scenarios. It will keep people (candidates) more engaged and make the whole recruitment process more fun, interesting, and creative. It is the application of game elements and digital game design techniques to non-game problems, such as various business and social impact challenges.

A Bucket List is a list of things, goals, and dreams you want to achieve in your life, to do before you die. Making a bucket list will get you closer to accomplishing those things that you want to do. For some people, writing down a bucket list could be a silly thing to do or it could seem like you are wasting your time. But when you see your goals on that list, you will be more focused to reach them. It will be fun to cross them off, because it’s a great feeling to achieve something. It is […]

You begin facing rejected offers, and worse, possible candidates may decline the first interview or refuse to come back for a second interview. A bad reputation will cost time, and money and prevent […]

If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything. – Mark Twain In this article, I would like to briefly discuss the topic which I consider important not only for recruiters, but for everybody who is a part of the interview process. Surely, I’m not the only one who knows, in practice, the role of “lying” in the process of proper assessment of the candidate’s qualities.

What is a Passive Candidate? A passive candidate is someone who is not actively looking for a new job opportunity. These candidates are currently employed, and they are often picky about their options. LinkedIn is full of passive candidates, and the total LinkedIn user base has 332 000 000 people worldwide.

Since technical forums are quite often password-protected and therefore invisible to Google, Bing, or Baidu, you can only locate those by using Booleans and advanced operators. But you cannot always access these websites, because they […]
