I make a point of doing some industry reading most days during the week, even if it’s just a quick glance at headlines. In no particular order, here are some of my favorite blogs and other sites for recruitment news:
Fistful of Talent – FOT is an opinion blog with a wide range of contributors in the talent, recruitment, and HR space, with pieces that are a little snarky/edgy. Always a great read; I particularly enjoy posts from Tim Sackett, Laurie Ruettimann, and Katrina Kibben.
Recruiting Headlines – a news aggregator that features news from and about recruiters, vendors, and HR professionals around the world, including a podcast.
EMInfo – news and features from a variety of recruitment speakers, trainers, presenters, suppliers, and more, plus a detailed events calendar
Recruiting Brief – another source of aggregated / curated content on a wide variety of recruitment-related topics (disclosure: we utilize their widget on our site)
The Global Recruiter – monthly magazine including in-depth articles, recruitment news, and featured stories with market-based coverage
Executive Grapevine (formerly Recruitment Grapevine) – daily newsletter for professional recruiters, plus a permanent online content hub
Recruiter – digital magazine (content is free, but registration is required) providing news for recruitment agencies, in-house recruiters, RPO firms and related suppliers
Talint International (formerly Recruitment International) – Content and support for recruiters, RPO organizations, in-house talent acquisition teams, and HR tech providers, with a global focus
Recruitment Buzz – this UK aggregator shares recruitment news from around the world in the technology, HR, and B2B markets.
Hunt Scanlon Media – Hunt Scanlon focuses on the human capital market, including executive search. They offer news, white papers, events, in-depth reports and more.
Staffing Industry Review – news, research, and data for staffing and workforce solutions
The Savage Truth – blog and news from Greg Savage, a globally-respected speaker and trainer in the recruitment industry. Greg “tells it like it is” without mincing words. I appreciate his perspective!
Recruiter Asia – news, trends, market information and more for recruiters across Asia
Human Resources Magazine – magazines, newsletters, and events for recruitment professionals in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong
There are plenty of other great sites for recruitment news and opinions (I’ve likely forgotten some of my “regulars” and apologize in advance). Do you have a favorite source to add to the list? Please add it in the comments!
