Still not hiring?

1 min read


SmartPulse — our weekly reader poll in SmartBrief on Workforce — tracks feedback from leading managers and HR practitioners. We run the poll question each Wednesday in our e-newsletter.

Last week, we asked: Which form of recruitment media have you used most over the past 12 months?

  • We don’t use recruitment advertising 48.28%
  • Traditional media (radio, newspaper advertisements, etc.) 38.79%
  • SEO/keyword optimization 9.48%
  • Pay-per-click/banner advertising 3.45%

Nearly half of readers reported not using any recruitment advertising at all. Could it be because they just aren’t recruiting at all?
