A meme is an element of culture or system of behavior that is passed from one person to another. To describe it in less esoteric terms, it’s simply the practice of following the herd. So, what’s the social meme? It’s the notion in recruiting that the best place to engage passive prospects is on a social media site. That’s a meme gone bad.

Best Practices get a lot of attention in recruiting. They’re the tried and proven techniques we hear so much about at conferences and on blogs. But stop and think about what they represent: they’re practices honed in the past. If the world wasn’t changing very much, that would be O.K., but in today’s (and tomorrow’s) radically different talent market, a different approach is needed. I call it Next Practices.

I’ve previously written about the untapped gold in an employer’s resume database, but now, there’s even more evidence to support my contention. Resume databases are often discounted because they are viewed as a repository of the long-term unemployed. Well, now there’s a study which demonstrates that those who have been out of work for a lengthy period of time are just as productive on-the-job as those who are quickly rehired.

With all of the talk these days about social recruiting, you’d think there would be a good understanding of how best to communicate with high caliber prospects online. The low yields now being reported from such interactions, however, indicate that much of our messaging isn’t having its intended impact. That’s why we need to adopt the art of talent whispering.
High caliber prospects are almost always employed and too busy to consider a new job. In fact, a recent survey of employed workers by CareerBuilder.com found that just 21 percent of the respondents expected to make a move in the next 1-2 years. That’s far below the historical norm for this stage in a recovery.
