Becoming a Hiring Machine

  • 105: Tactical Tuesday - Job Titles & Voice Memos [RECORDED LIVE IN LONDON]

    25 JUN. 2024 · This special Tactical Tuesday episode comes from a recent LIVE Loxo event in London. We gathered 20 of the area's top recruitment movers & shakers for panel conversations, Q&As, and some good old fashioned networking.  Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing some of those sessions (fare thee well, FOMO). Today's focuses on two tips for expanding both your reach and your reply rates — from splitting up your job titles in your searches to sending voice memos.  Given the fact that this was recorded live at an event, you may notice that the sound quality is not at our standard level — we apologize for that, but certainly think this content is still well worth a listen!

  • 103: Tactical Tuesday - The Better Way to Source ft. Viven Maron

    18 JUN. 2024 · This Tactical Tuesday conversation highlights the limitations of using job titles as a search term when looking for candidates — and introduces better ways to source talent. Job titles are not always indicative of the specific skills, experience, and responsibilities of a candidate — and often, they're more of a representation of where the candidate is than we're they're going. There are other issues, too, like the fact that companies often use creative job titles that may not accurately represent the role, and job titles can vary widely between companies — making it difficult to compare candidates. Vivien's recommendation is that instead of relying on job titles, recruiters should use Boolean search and filters to find candidates based on specific skills and experiences.

  • 101: Tactical Tuesday - Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow; An Ode to Exit Interviews ft. Vivien Maron

    11 JUN. 2024 · Exit interviews are often missed opportunities for companies to gather valuable feedback from employees — especially those who are leaving on quote-unquote "good terms." In this episode, our resident Tactical Tuesday queen, Vivien, walks us through the four different kinds of exits (employee resignations, layoffs, firings, and changing team) and what insights each kind of associated exit interview can provide into what can be done to improve retention and make better hiring decisions moving forward. Yet even knowing that these insights are available, many orgs don't formally conduct exit interviews — and those who do are often not doing them as effectively as they could.  Listen in to hear some of the top ways to structure an exit interview to get the most out of it — as well as Sam's #1 favorite exit interview question that transformed the way he looked at them entirely.  Chapters: 00:00 - Podcast Intro 01:43 - Understanding Exit Interviews: Types and Insights 05:24 - Top Questions to Unlock Exit Interview Insights 19:50 - Closing Thoughts and Farewell Explore all our episodes and catch the full video experience at https://loxo.co/podcasts/?utm_source=speaker&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=Episode+Description https://loxo.co/blog/podcast/089-tactical-tuesday-post-placement-candidate-hiring-manager-check-ins-ft-vivien-maron/https://loxo.co/?utm_source=speaker&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=Episode+Description

  • 097: [REPLAY] Tactical Tuesday - Using ChatGPT to Shop Your MPC ft. Viven Maron

    28 MAY. 2024 · We're resurfacing our first-ever Tactical Tuesday episode — because even a full year later, it's extremely relevant (maybe even moreso now than it was then). In this special replay episode, Sam welcomes Vivien Maron, one of our in-house recruitment brainiacs, to discuss the intersection of recruitment and ChatGPT. Vivien emphasizes the struggle in finding great talent, which has led recruiters to focus more on developing business and client relationships. It’s in this context that the concept of Most Placeable Candidate (MPC) Marketing becomes essential. Vivien also reveals a shift in attitude towards ChatGPT, encouraging listeners to have conversations with it and allow it to iterate instead of treating it solely as a search engine. She provides examples of how ChatGPT can be utilized, such as writing LinkedIn posts and creating email campaigns and highlights the importance of providing feedback to ChatGPT to improve depth and quality in an attempt to address some common challenges in enhancing engagement in email outreach. The TL;DR? AI is a tool that’s here to stay. Using it tactically to improve workflow and challenging functions is something that recruiters need to embrace — or risk falling behind.  Link to ChatGPT prompts used during the episode: https://docs.google.com/document/d/10U9aCmdmGVWTMdTr-RXRDv60lPJbVfFbh24tn_B-nLw/edit?usp=sharing Explore all our episodes and catch the full video experience at https://loxo.co/podcasts/?utm_source=speaker&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=Episode+Description https://loxo.co/blog/podcast/089-tactical-tuesday-post-placement-candidate-hiring-manager-check-ins-ft-vivien-maron/https://loxo.co/?utm_source=speaker&utm_medium=podcast&utm_campaign=Episode+Description
