12 Human Resources Blogs You Need to Start Following

We all want to find the best human resources blogs. Everywhere you look online these days, you’ll see a so-called expert with a blog, providing advice about HR, recruitment, and careers.

It’s a positive trend. But countless keyboards all over the world have been worn out by people writing second-rate content. And the world of job blogs is not immune.

Thankfully, there are a few leaders in the field who consistently provide thought-provoking insights into the world of human resources, recruitment, careers.

Let me share with you a few industry voices who continually inspire me, challenge my assumptions and help me become a better employer and employee.

    2. Switch & Shift Blog.

      Many of us lived through the bad old days of “profits first, people second” approach to human resources and recruitment. These days, a “people first, profits second” philosophy is the accepted new norm. The team at Switch&Shift are taking the conversation about careers, HR and job search to a new level. For them, profits come as a direct result of putting people first.

          5. Alex Malley: LinkedIn Influencer.

          employment and job search blog

            There aren’t many world-class CEOs who consistently blog about issues they’ve overcome as a way of teaching others to do the same (all while building a strong personal brand). Alex is one of those leaders. Reading his LinkedIn articles provides easy-to-digest yet powerful advice on topics such as successful leadership, effective hiring, and being a rising star in your organization.

            6. James Caan: LinkedIn Influencer.

              The vibe I get from James is that he’s the kind of employer you might not always like, but will unequivocally respect. A serial entrepreneur with a knack for building high-performing teams, his lessons will be useful to jobseekers and employers alike.

              7. SmartRecruiters Blog.

                  9. ERE.net Blog.

                  recruitment blog

                    A benchmark for what a modern recruitment publication should be like, ERE provides news and analysis with a the kind of flair and intelligence that, until a few years ago, only top-notch newspapers reached (before they got killed off by blogs like, well, ERE.com).

                    10. Lou Adler: LinkedIn Influencer.

                    ceo careers blog

                      There are two types of CEO bloggers. The first type writes prescriptive, detached advice. The second writes captivating and valuable stories based on their own life experience. Lou Adler clearly belongs to the latter group. C-Suite, middle managers and even junior hires will discover fascinatingly useful nuggets of wisdom in his short and to-the-point posts.

                          10 Best Free Job Apps You Need For Effective Job Hunting

                          Seeking for the right job but not sure how to do it in a more effective way?

                          To make the job hunting process easier, I’m recommending 10 best job apps that can help you look for the right match anywhere at any time. The best of all? They’re all free!

                          1. jobandtalent

                          jobandtalent

                            Great for browsing new jobs as you commute home via subway, bus or carpool, the jobandtalent app is like a Pinterest for job seekers.

                            Easily browse, save and revisit job postings from your smartphone and receive notifications about jobs that match your professional qualifications.

                            Download it for iOS and Android.

                            2. Jobr

                            jobr

                              This job hunting app is unique in that it lets you anonymously browse job listings based on your professional resume. If a company that you like also shows an interest in you, the app let’s you chat directly with a company rep. Great for getting your foot in the door and making a memorable impression.

                              Download it for iOS.

                              3. Monster Job Search

                              monster job search

                                I’m a big fan of Monster. It’s one of the first job sites employers think of when they want to list a new position online. The Monster Job Search app functions pretty similarly to the normal website, so it’s very easy to use for not-so-tech-savvy job hunters.

                                Download it for iOS and Android.

                                4. Jobs and Career Search

                                Advertising

                                job and career search

                                  This is a good, simple app for browsing global locations for your next job. With a job index of more than 50,000 jobs listed globally, this app is a good choice if you are moving to a new area and want to line a new job up quickly.

                                  Download it for iOS.

                                  5. Hyper Networking Groups

                                  hyper networking groups

                                    This job hunting app isn’t so much a job hunting app as it is a connections hunting app. It’s great for learning who’s who in your desired field and forming connections. It also shows you how you and your industry connections are connected via your social networks, so you can follow up with them on your other social sites.

                                    Download it for iOS.

                                    6. CardDrop

                                    CardDrop

                                      CardDrop is an awesome job hunting app that let’s you digitally drop and pick up virtual business cards. This app is great for helping you make new connections at seminars, interviews, meetings and conferences. You can also attach social media profiles to the cards you pick up or send to enable easier connecting on social networks.

                                      Download it for Android and iOS.

                                      7. Job Interview Questions

                                      interview questions both

                                        Okay, so this app looks kind of outdated, but it’s super useful for getting you into the swing of answering any kind of interview question that is thrown your way. The big benefit of using this app is that it explains to you what your interviewers motivations might be for asking you a specific kind of question. Learn what your interviewer is looking for in your answers and be more prepared for the real interview when the time comes.

                                        8. 101 Interview Questions and Answers

                                        101 both

                                          This app is great because it provides guidance about the kinds of answers you should give for each kind of question. Think of it as an essay rubric but for job interview questions.

                                          Download it for Android.

                                          9. Job Interview Question-Answer

                                          q and a

                                            Feeling confident with your text-answered interview questions but concerned about doing the face-to-face interview? This app prepares you for interacting with your interviewer by simulating an employer asking you questions.

                                            You can record your response and see what you look like to the interviewer to understand what movements, vocal pauses, etc. you need to work on.

                                            Download this app for iOS and Android.

                                            10. HireVue

                                            hirevue

                                              HireVue is a great job hunting app for those times when your interviewer wants to get some preliminary questions out of the way.

                                              When an interested employer wants to interview you, they send you a request via HireVue and you can answer it in your free time, when you’re ready. Your interview might consist of a some FaceTime, some multiple choice questions or open-ended text answers and can be completed and sent to the interviewer when you’re finish.
