The Compliance Challenge of Evergreen Requisitions and Pipeline Recruiting by Lindholm, Chris | LocalJobNetwork.com

My concern is that while record keeping (particularly in hiring) is a topic that has been endlessly discussed in the public forum, the most significant problems remain, and the risk of significant cost to the contractor is still there. In fact, one of the reasons I chose to write this was not to remind people of an ongoing issue, but to make perfectly clear that with the significant expansion of record keeping requirements under VEVRAA and Section 503, I am certain the problems for contractors is on the verge of getting worse.

Don’t blast out the job posting to every talent agency, career network, job site and university. But don’t keep it a secret either. You’ll need to look beyond your circle of friends and colleagues, but keep the posting on sites and in networks that fit the company, its values and the position qualifications.

The simple math that will change the way you hire forever

Great article filled with practical advice that highlights the “theory of quarters” when it comes to recruiting & hiring.

5 Job Interview Questions that Are Illegal to Ask

While there certainly are more than these, Monster.com put together a list of five questions that aren’t legal to ask during a job interview. Recruiters take note:

For example, it’s illegal to ask any questions related to protected classes, says Charles A. Krugel, an HR attorney. “Protected classes typically include race, gender, nationality, religion, military status and age (40 and up). Usually, such questions are intended to identify those class members. More often than not, it’s ‘loaded’ questions that are asked, or those where it’s fairly obvious that the asker has a hidden agenda and the question has little to do with the job’s essential duties.”

Some examples of these questions include,”I notice that you live in Brookfield, there’s some nice country clubs and retirement communities there — are you a member of any of them?” and “If you need to commute to work, how would you do that?” The first question can relate to socioeconomic status, gender, race, religion and age, Krugel says., while the second may be looking for information on socioeconomic status and race.
