Inside Higher Ed launched a completely revamped recruiting site a few weeks back. After an initial shakeout period that included more bugs than we might have hoped, the site is now running smoothly. We'd love to hear what you think! Send feedback, suggestions or (kindly worded) critiques to publisher@insidehighered.com.  And as always, if you need assistance with anything, give us a call at 202-659-9208 or drop us a line at recruiting@insidehighered.com.

Best Practices in Hiring Audio ConferenceBe sure to register for our upcoming audio conference, Best Practices in Hiring.

Even in tight financial times, colleges must work to ensure they have used best practices not only to create the most optimal candidate pools, but also to protect themselves from legal vulnerabilities.

On Tuesday, January 24 at 1 p.m. Eastern, Kathleen A. Rinehart, general counsel at Saint Xavier University and a principal at Conflict Consultants Network, will provide guidance on the development of effective tools to improve the hiring process and ensure legal compliance. The presentation will apply both to faculty and non-faculty hiring.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

"When the recruiting and marketing departments are on the same page, that’s a good thing. But what if they’re not only on the same page, but they’re the same person?" That's the question Todd Rafael explores in his terrific interview with Anita Jackson, the chief brand officer AND the director of human resources at Women’s Healthcare Associates, LLC.

In this seven minute video, Ms. Jackson shares her thoughts on whether her organization's model could work in a larger organization, and how this unique structure affects the candidate experience.
