The Most Comprehensive Resource for Digital Recruiting Today

Digitizing Talent Book

I am so excited to share this with you! This book has been a labor of love and is a culmination of conversations, research, experiences, and support I’ve received and experienced throughout the past two decades of my professional career.

The most important thing I wanted to accomplish with this book was to take the mystery out of recruiting in the digital space. For most of us, HR and talent acquisition is a long-term career. If you’ve been in HR as long as I have, you remember when you placed help-wanted ads in a print newspaper, posted a job or two on Craigslist, but as far as developing an entire digital recruiting strategy? We have a lot to keep up with already, and adding search engine optimization (SEO), best practices for online job posts, new social networks every few years…all of this can feel really overwhelming. This is the book that breaks it all down for you, from video job ads to artificial intelligence to diversity and accessibility in an online world.
