  • Excellent piece Andy. I have spoke previously on using blogs to recruit and have had the opportunity to put this into practice recently through http://allenrecruitmentjobs.ie/
    it is a simple blog using wordpress but now generates more traffic than the corporate website. The challenges have been driving traffic to the site and then converting that traffic to job applicants.
    it does not happen overnight but this approach, carried out on a continuous basis is beginning to reap rewards after several months.
