When job postings come to life + a book you’re all probably going to buy

June 7, 2018 By Tarek Pertew


I’m dialing this in from an HR & Talent event in midtown, where I was fortunate enough to hear an excellent talk on Structured Hiring from Greenhouse’s Director of Talent, Jacqui Maguire. I subsequently began an unstructured recruiting process to have her speak at HR Uncubed 2019.

She pretty much said yes (Jacqui, I’m holding you to it).

I also bumped into someone I haven’t seen since the pre-Yahoo days of Tumblr, her former employer: Sherry Almasi, congratulations on your new role as Feedvisor’s Director of People!

Read: Speaking of people, hiring and new things, Dream Teams: Working Together Without Falling Apart by HR Uncubed speaker, Shane Snow, was just released this week. It’s probably already on your list, judging by the speed at which his Storytelling Edge book disappeared at HR Uncubed this year.

A very aesthetically pleasing book cover.

It’s Alive!: Speaking of aesthetics, you can now officially turn your terribly wordy job postings into something much more vibrant with the release of our video job postings (VJPs).

You can see them in action on Merrill’s page, our inaugural VJP customer (scroll down to jobs). Or you can get more details and check out the mobile versions here. If you have one you’d like to convert today, just fill out the contact form. We’ll get in touch.

Don’t Forget: One week from today, I beg you to send a note out to your company inviting all soccer fans to wear a jersey to work. This small gesture will help Street Child United raise lots of money to protect at-risk children on the streets. #BringYourKitToWork

That’s all, folks.
