A quick update for Inside Higher Ed recruiters -- news, notes and a friendly welcome to new friends.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

According to one of the longest running polls in the industry, WEDDLE’s online survey of job seekers and recruiters, 94 percent of employers are using the Internet to publicize their job openings. And online ads are resulting in hires. According to the WEDDLE's survey: "Over half of the respondents (50.8 percent) are now hiring over half of their new employees online. And, an astonishing 25.4 percent are hiring 91 percent or more of their new workers on the Internet."

College and university job searches have migrated online along with the rest of the job market. While these searches present unique challenges, it’s no longer a question of whether to recruit online, but of how to do so most effectively.

Inside Higher Ed’s tips for successful online recruiting will help you build a diverse pool of great talent efficiently and cost effectively. Learn more here.
