Web analytics and recruitment for Recruiters United

Today I gave a presentation together with Bas van de Haterd on web analytics for corporate recruiters, members of Recruiters United.
The presentation is in Dutch, but if you like an English version, email me gordon@rise.nl or give me a call.

Topics in the presentation: Analytics, Stats, Statistics, Webanalytics and Social Analytics, monitoring what is happening out there!

We inspired the corporate recruiters with the possibilities on how to increase ROI in online recruitment and learned them some new things in internet recruitment…. The core of internet recruitment.

Recruitment 2.0 do it now!

Last week I wrote about the best job in the world

This week they, http://www.islandreefjob.com, made up a shorlist of only 50 applicants out of 34K applicants.

On this shortlist there are a lot of US and Canadian, but also Iris, our Dutch Student. I think only because of the fact that she made it to this list … She should go all the way down there.

But Iris needs help from us, Recruiters. We need to vote for her!

Voting for Iris means you are working on a recruitment project which generated over 30K applicants in the first round of selection. Now the shortlist has been set at only 50 applicants, Iris is the one from the Netherlands. She knows what to do.. So get her the job… Vote now! You will experience worlds most succesful Recruitment 2.0 project of 2009!

Why I am writing about this… Because I like what is happening down there and I like the fact that a Dutch girl can get this job.

Successful Recruitment 2009

During preparation of Successful Recruitment Seminar, I stumbled up on a little sneak preview of the sites that are in the race to become the best recruitmentsite 2009.


It appears that these are the same websites in the race as there were at the Digital Recruitment Awards in 2007.

Does that mean there is no new successful site out there? OR is it a fake picture???


So what is this picture about, when I asked the photographer about this mobypicture he answered:


That’s all for now… I’ll keep you posted on this event, I will be live blogging from this event on March 12 2009.
