Next year, it's expected that 50% of the visits to career sites will be over a mobile device.

Welcome to a special Talent Acquisition Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio, this is Peter Clayton -- with a somewhat unique podcast -- in that what you are about to hear is an excerpt from the presentation made by Joe Essenfeld, the founder and CEO at Jibe, Recorded at the Mobile Recruiting Conference in Atlanta, GA, titled Tales From the Field: The Mobile Applicant.

Joe shares research from a group of job seekers contacted through Craig's list as well as the difficulties many company face with mobile apply. Quoting Joe, "The expectations of job seekers is that career sites and job applications on mobile devices just work. Phones have delivered so much for them already, and they're such a powerful tool, that for jobs not to work for them is a surprise."

Prior to starting JIBE, Joe was the COO of Insomnia Cookies, a successful late-night cookie delivery company in college towns across the country.

People as Merchandise: Crack the Code to LinkedIn Recruitment


When you deconstruct LinkedIn from a computer scientist's perspective, interesting things appear.

Published on September 27 2013
Josef Kadlec, People as Merchandise -TotalPicture Radio InterviewJosef Kadlec

So here's a nuts and bolts Talent Acquisition Channel podcast that will help every recruiter get more out of LinkedIn. Not a recruiter? No problem. Assuming you use LinkedIn (and OF COURSE you do if you are reading this), you too will learn how to make more effective use of the de facto career tool for finding and being found. For most of us, using LinkedIn is like falling down the rabbit hole and having lunch with the characters in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. If you read Josef's book, you'll be the one grinning.

Our good friend and frequent contributor to TotalPicture Radio, David Perry @roguerecruiter author of the Guerrilla Marketing for Job Hunters series introduced me to my guest on this podcast. A recruiter in Prague, (yes, folks, that's the capital of the Czech Republic), Josef Kadlec, and to his new book People as Merchandise: Crack the Code to LinkedIn Recruitment. (See the link in the sidebar). With a title like that, I was obviously intrigued.

People as Merchandise? Really? Think about it for a minute. Aren't we all "merchandise" on Facebook, on Twitter, on Pinterest, on YouTube, and on LinkedIn? Collectively, we are the currency that has made Mark Zuckerberg and Ried Hoffman and many other social network visionaries -- billionaires.

As you'll hear in this interview Josef is not slick -- but he is really smart. And, although he's a recruiter, he started his career as a software engineer. So, he approached LinkedIn not from a headhunter's perspective, but from a coder's mentality: How can I hack this thing to create shortcuts and find the people I'm looking for? Then, how can I connect with these people outside of LinkedIn's walled garden?
