Get talent off the bench ... and into the workforce
The Staffing Stream
A lot of the jobs that are being created are temporary in nature, from blue collar to white collar contract jobs. Those white collar contractors often aren’t looking for full-time, career-type employment. They’re looking to work at a company maybe for a year or two, and then move on to the next skill, or the next computer language, or whatever skill is in demand. That’s something staffers can take advantage of. Especially right now, with inflation low and an economy that isn’t growing too quickly. Interest rates should stay low, and there should be little pressure on wages for the time being. This type of environment creates an opportunity for staffing companies to expand.

The balance of power in the job market is shifting slowly toward employees from employers. Bob Funk sees it firsthand from his position as chief executive officer of staffing agency Express Employment Professionals. "We're short of people in a number of cities," he said. So he's changing the focus of his $2.5 billion, Oklahoma City-based business. Instead of concentrating on finding jobs for those who want them, Express Employment is putting more effort into finding workers for companies that need them.

Get more social with your recruiting
Recruiter
When it comes to recruiting, taking the social route has never been more important. In an industry where acquiring and retaining quality talent is a constant challenge, it's crucial that HR professionals strive to take recruitment processes to the next level by getting more social and more automated. It's no longer simply about posting on a job board, sending job invitations or tweeting about an opportunity. The next phase of social recruiting will focus on better leveraging and incentivizing current employees.

Rise of the EQ test
Human Resource Executive Online
Emotional intelligence assessments -- tests that measure our ability to use emotions as information, and reason about those feelings -- are becoming an increasingly common part of the hiring process. Nearly 20 percent of organizations use personality or emotional intelligence tests in hiring or employee promotion, according to a survey conducted by the Society for Human Resource Management in 2011.

58 percent of employers have caught a lie on a resume: survey
CareerBuilder
The pressure to stand out in a sea of applicants may tempt job seekers to be less than honest on their resumes, but is it worth the risk? Fifty-eight percent of hiring managers said they’ve caught a lie on a resume; one-third (33 percent) of these employers have seen an increase in resume embellishments post-recession. Half of employers (51 percent) said that they would automatically dismiss a candidate if they caught a lie on his/her resume, while 40 percent said that it would depend on what the candidate lied about. Seven percent said they’d be willing to overlook a lie if they liked the candidate.
