    Why the Best Recruitment Means Smarter Workforce Marketing

    in Business

    The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live in the New Year on Wednesday, January 13, 2016, from 1-2 pm ET (10-11 am PT).

    Last week we talked about how to create the ultimate hiring experience, and this week we’re going to talk about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing.

    Today’s hiring economy is highly complex and competitive and finding top talent is harder than ever. If fact, attracting candidates and retaining current employees is a lot like attracting and retaining customers.

    Candidates want to be valued and have an engaging and transparent experience and how you treat them has a direct impact on your brand. In today’s digital age, where people share experiences online, a poor candidate experience can be bad for business and translate to millions in lost revenue annually. 

    The fact is we are all job seekers and perpetual candidates, even if we’re currently happily employed. And candidates are the hiring organization’s to lose before they even think about applying for a job. 

    Today both employers and candidates alike are responsible for creating and marketing their brands — which can give both a symbiotic and differentiating competitive edge.

    Join TalentCulture #TChat Show co-founders and co-hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as they talk about why the best recruitment means smarter workforce marketing with this week’s guest: Abby Euler, Talent Acquisition Evangelist at IBM Smarter Workforce.

    Thank you to all the TalentCulture sponsors, partners and supporters!

    Jan. 6, 2016, 10pm (PDT) - Time Travel, The John Titor Story with Mike Sauve

    in Paranormal

    The story and legend of the unknown man nicknamed John Titor took the Conspiracy and Time Travel groups by storm from 2000 to 2001. It was during this time, someone named "John Titor" starting using that name on several on-line bulletin boards claiming to be a time traveler from 2036.


    Titor made numerous predictions about events in the near future, a number of them vague and some quite specific, starting with events in 2004. He described a drastically changed future in which the United States had broken up into five smaller regions, the environment and infrastructure had been devastated by a nuclear attack, and most other world powers had been destroyed.


    Titor claimed to be assigned to a governmental time-travel project. Purportedly, Titor had been sent back to 1975 to retrieve an IBM 5100 computer which he said was needed to "debug" various legacy computer programs in 2036. The IBM 5100 runs the APL and BASIC programming languages.


    Titor had been selected for this mission specifically, given that his paternal grandfather was directly involved with the assembly and programming of the 5100. Titor claimed to be on a stopover in the year 2000 for "personal reasons", to collect pictures lost in the (future) civil war and to visit his family, of whom he spoke often. And then, after about a year of posts, he vanished: disappeared to who knows where?


    Mike Sauve is a big fan of the John Titor story/myth/legend. He has written non-fiction for The National Post, Variety, and HTML Giant. His fiction has appeared in McSweeney’s, Feathertale, Filling Station, and elsewhere. His novella Goodbye Pantopon Rose is available from the Chicago Centre for Literature and Photography. His novels The Wraith of Skrellman and The Apocalypse of Lloyd are forthcoming from Montag Press.
