Here at Indigo Red, we’re passionate about being innovative. Speak to any recruiter, in almost any industry, and they will tell you that finding great candidates is the hardest part of their job and it takes every trick in the book to find the right people to fill the job.
Well, we agree! It’s a candidate short market and we’re always keen to explore new avenues to find new talent.
VlogYourJob is a new recruitment tool which allows candidates to see employers talking about the jobs they are recruiting for – in a video clip. No more boring A4 job specs and job ads that all sound the same. It’s a fantastic way to differentiate yourself as an employer and stand out in the recruitment market. It’s also a great little marketing tool – and it’s not going to cost you an arm and a leg.
Anyway, enough of the sales pitch from me, you can see our MD talking about it here:
This You Tube clip is American, but makes interesting reading nonetheless. Whether the figures predicted are accurate is anyone’s guess but if they are there is one thing for sure, recruiters aren’t going to be out of a job any time soon.
This year’s elusive must have present is a Nintendo Wii. Those clever kids have a console more interactive than ever. Even girls are meant to like this one although I’m reserving judgement until I get to play on one. Ever since I bought Himself an xBox for his birthday and then spent hours having to read in the bedroom whilst he zapped aliens, I’ve not been the biggest fan of gaming.
Himself really really wants a Wii. So, being a doting girlfriend I have tried to buy one. Everywhere is sold out, with the exception of one online store who is selling that it at £100 over the rrp and some unscrupulous eBay sellers who are doubling the price. He’lll have to wait until his birthday, or at least until they sort the strap problem out.
Numerous users have reported breaking light shades and TVs as they get a bit excited and wave their arms around. Now it seems the straps aren’t strong enough and the hand held remotes are flying off in living rooms all over the country. Some of the more amusing stories can be read on wiihaveaproblem.com
Looks like Himself will be getting socks for Christmas.
