Top 10 tips for creating a great Monster Studios video

Why post text-only job ads when you can post ones that include videos of you or someone from your team talking directly to candidates about the position you’re trying to fill?

Since you’re not a professional video producer (don’t worry, you don’t have to be!), we put together a few tips to help you make the best-looking video job ads with Monster Studios—right from your phone!

How to integrate search, email and text for better recruiting

We just had our 100th month of continued job growth. That makes for a job market in which the best candidates have several options, and recruiters have to work double-time to turn the tide in their favor. The challenge is with so many digital moving parts to most recruiting strategies – email, search, text, and social, for starters – it sometimes takes away the opportunity to focus on the deeper relationship-building functions of recruiting. Here are some best practices to help you integrate the digital and human sides of your recruiting campaigns and be more efficient.

Why small businesses should always be hiring—even when they don't think they need to

Small businesses can’t afford to be caught off guard with a hiring gap or shortage. The smaller a business is, the bigger the impact when you don’t have someone to do key tasks. That’s why it’s important to have a strategy where you’re essentially “always hiring”—or at least in a position where you can do so at a moment’s notice. We asked hiring experts for their advice on how to set this up in the most efficient and effective way.

Recruiting in the "new" job market

It’s a weird time in the job market right now. You probably already know about the record low unemployment and the strong labor market if you’re a recruiter, but the bottom line is there are far fewer unemployed people seeking work than roles to fill. Or put another way, most of the top talent is already working for someone else. To help you navigate this “new” job market, we connected with recruiting experts to come up with some best practices for finding quality candidates.
