Hiring and Applicant Tracking

Any good recruiter or hiring manager knows that self-education is a great way to improve your skills. Having trouble sealing the deal with a superstar prospect? Can’t quite master the Facebook scene? Just want to read up on the latest and greatest in the recruiting world? These are the best human resources blogs to check out now. Learn how to recruit, hire, and onboard with aplomb!

Best HR Blog for Recruiting

The Searchologist is dedicated entirely to the world of recruiting. As part of The #SocialRecruiting Show, Katrina Collier interviews diverse experts on every recruiting topic under the sun. This blog offers the benefits of multiple perspectives.  You can join in the discussion, view it later, or just read the textual rundown. If you want something to do on your lunch hour, these Crowdcast videos are an educational (but not boring!) way to pass the time.

Best HR Blog by a Thought Leader

John Boudreau seems to be three steps ahead of every other HR expert out there. In addition to being one of our favorite authors, he’s the research director for the Center for Effective Organization at USC and a professor of management and organization at the Marshall School of Business. A prolific author, his blogs are always thoroughly researched and well written. If you want to know where the recruiting world is headed, Boudreau writes some of the best human resources blogs out there.

Best HR Blog for Motivation

The RBL Group is a leadership consulting firm with an emphasis on HR. If you’re feeling a bit burned out or have a case of the Mondays, check out the RBL Insights Blog. This is one of the best human resources blogs on our list because each blog includes actionable advice to implement immediately. We especially enjoy the blogs authored by Dave Ulrich (author of one of the five books every hiring manager should read). His take on the concept of time, for example, offers a whole new perspective on time management.

Best HR Blog for HR Issues

Once you’ve got the talent, you need to retain it. The HR Bartender blog is written by the wise and approachable Sharlyn Lauby, who created the blog as a “friendly place to discuss workplace issues.” Her blogs address things that HR managers will encounter time and time again – how do you handle grief in the workplace? Do you need an onboarding intervention? How can you combat employee disengagement? Some of the best posts are part of the #AskHRBartender series, where Lauby answers reader-submitted questions about HR conflicts.

Best HR Blog for Humor (and Education)

Fistful of Talent is written by a group of experts from the HR and recruiting world. You’ll find yourself nodding in agreement and even laughing out loud as these witty authors mull over everything from avoiding lawsuits to the benefits of hiring the formerly incarcerated. Fistful of Talent is more like a series of op-eds than a collection of newspaper articles; you’re definitely getting someone’s take on something rather than ‘just the facts.’ But the opinions you’ll read are informed, coherent, and thought provoking (as well as humorous). It makes a refreshing change!

Best HR Blog for Techies

The Boolean Black Belt blog focuses on technological solutions for recruiting problems. Author Glen Cathey was inspired when, as a technical recruiter, he leveraged Boolean search strings to narrow down his candidate pool. His blog is full of tips for leveraging recruiting technology. With practical hacks like how to get unlimited LinkedIn InMails, Cathey gives applicable advice so you can maximize functionality of tools you’re already using.

Best HR Blog for Recruitment Solutions

(You knew this was coming, right?) We’ve got to toot our own horn a little bit here! We think our very own ApplicantStack blog features some great content on solving recruitment and onboarding challenges. Covering everything from the basics of recruitment tools to industry-specific advice, we share what we’ve learned as a best-in-class ATS provider.
