SmartRecruiters Blog Takes Major Step Toward Becoming the Go-To Destination for the Internet’s Best Recruiting and Hiring Content
SAN FRANCISCO, CA– SmartRecruiters, your workspace to find and hire great people, today unveiled the new SmartRecruiters Blog. To date, the SmartRecruiters Blog has published 750+ original blog posts by 225+ authors, garnering 2.5+ million page views. Emulating the image-centric designs on news feeds of social networks such as Pinterest, the new responsive blog design makes it easier to engage with content — the old SmartRecruiters Blog home page area consisted 21 percent of images, while the new blog home page area is 78 percent images. SmartRecruiters is also announcing a content syndication partnership with NewsCred that allows the SmartRecruiters Blog to republish content from Forbes, The Huffington Post and The Associated Press.
“From the beginning, my goal has been to publish remarkable content to help businesses hire,” said David Smooke, SmartRecruiters’ Director of Content and Social Media. “In this next chapter we create a more enjoyable reading experience. We will publish not only great original recruiting and hiring content, but also the best recruiting and hiring content from some of the world’s most trusted publications.”
Some of the greatest hits of the SmartRecruiters Blog are:
New SmartRecruiters Blog Design
“Content consumption is moving toward a world of single page design,” said Matt Pham, SmartRecruiters’ Creative Director. “And that’s why I designed the new SmartRecruiters Blog home page as a content consumption destination. From the blog home page, images give the reader a clearer understanding of what post they would enjoy reading.”
“This functionality of the ‘endless scroll’ is relatively unseen on corporate blogs,” said Alex Wesler, SmartRecruiters’ Director of Web Development. “I’m excited to bring the web experience of top blogs, like Mashable, to the B2B corporate space.”
Future of the SmartRecruiters’ Content
The editorial mission statement of SmartRecruiters is: “The Leading Source for How to Hire in the Social Web.” To take the next step in its vision, SmartRecruiters formed a partnership with NewsCred to republish the best recruiting and hiring content from Forbes, The Huffington Post and The Associated Press.
“Today all brands need to not only be publishers, but also to publish incredible content that rises to the top,” said NewsCred’s VP of Marketing, Alicianne Rand. “NewsCred continues to drive content strategies for some of the biggest global brands like Pepsi, Visa and NASCAR, and we’re excited to see the SmartRecruiters Blog execute a successful content strategy. They know content is a priority for reaching and engaging consumers wherever they are.”
“I’ve worked for 15 years in the global recruiting industry, leading professional and university recruitment and HR departments for companies such as Monsanto, Unext.com and Lockheed Martin,” said global HR professional and SmartRecruiters Blog Contributor Johnny Torrance-Nesbitt. “I am very happy and thankful to have found an excellent outlet where I can give back my advice to a large, relevant and appreciative audience.”
