The Source of Hire. TAtech Thought Leadership Report
Do employers know there’s a problem identifying the source of candidates?
Joining Peter Clayton today on Totalpicture’s HR and TA Technology Channel is Andy Hibel, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of a company which owns and operates academic career and employment websites, HigherEdJobs.
Andy led a session at the recent #TAtechChicago Congress to discuss the source of hire, an important issue for job board operators and recruiters, and an issue with as many opinions as complexities.
Why is this still and issue? Why is it important? What should be done about it?
A little background… Last year, HigherEdJobs listed nearly 215,000 jobs at 5,394 colleges and universities, with an average of over 1,400,000 unique visits per month. Virtually all of these jobs come directly from the school to HigherEdJobs. HigherEdJobs’ growth over the past 20 years has established it as a trusted resouce and leader in the academic recruitment field.

HigherEd Careers’ aim is to meaningfully explore current topics that affect jobs of the higher ed community. Over the years, HigherEd Careers has featured college, university and community college presidents, Google leadership, association experts, Congressional leadership, and an astronaut.
