Embarking on a job search can be intimidating, exhausting and downright overwhelming. As recruiters, we don’t like to think about it ourselves! The unknown can be scary. But we are here to help!
We know digital marketing well. We started our careers in digital marketing, we’ve run digital marketing teams, we been project managers, strategists and designers and now we recruit digital marketing talent for companies.

Happy New Year! This is the time of year everyone is talking about New Year’s resolutions. It’s likely you’ve even been asked what your New Year’s resolutions are.
We are struggling. We have had an open job order for the past six months for a Director of SEO. We have what we want in mind but we can’t seem to find it.
Online reviews are a great innovation. They help us to determine which book to read, if this hotel or that hotel is the cleanest, whether a piece of clothing is true to size before ordering and whether or not we would want to work at a particular company.
Do you want a career in digital marketing? Digital marketing is a data driven and a creative job requiring diverse skill sets. Most marketing agencies employ analysts, mathematicians, technical folks and creatives.
Hiring a recruiter can be expensive but making a mis-hire can be even more expensive — as much as 2-3x’s the base salary of the mis-hire.
It wasn’t all that long ago that successful digital analysts (which we called a “web analyst” at the time) were people who fell into the role because they simply happened to have an eclectic mix of personal traits.
Social media experts are everywhere. Everyone claims to be one and those who don’t already claim to be one, want to be one. Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration but it often feels that way.

Across all industries and all career paths, there is a constant struggle as to whether industry experience is needed or not. This is a conversation that arises when we are talking to clients about digital strategy roles, web design roles and sales roles alike.
Every company needs core values. The company with only one person as well as the company with 10,000+ people needs core values. Core values drive you back to what your organization stands for, what they value and how they do work.
In recruiting and consulting, we get to see and experience the stereotypes about all the generations in the workforce. These stereotypes are generalizations about a group of people and while they aren’t true for everyone, we should be aware of them.
You’ve seen this equation throughout our website. If we’ve met you in person, you have heard us talk about it. We are passionate about the process of building teams and retaining employees.
When researching LinkedIn profiles, I noticed some accounts that are really expressing their personalities in what they say and how they describe themselves.
By now, you know we are strong advocates for interview assignments. But, NO assignment is better than a poorly planned and designed assignment.
We recently sat down with Bill Balderaz, President and Founder, of Futurety located in Columbus, Ohio. Bill is well known in the startup community and is a regular on the speaker circuit at conferences ranging from New York to California.
Interview assignments have been given a bad rap. Dishonest companies have abused them hurting companies that use them appropriately.
We want to hire a Marketing Manager with a lot of experience and we don’t want to pay them what they are worth. Who says that?

We all have things that are important to us in our careers and jobs. These are called our non-negotiables. These things are so important to us that when we have them, we are able to thrive in our jobs and we love what we do.
Why do people cheat or lie? Do they think they can get ahead? Do they think they are not good enough? In life, we all know cheating and lying hurts everyone.
At TalentID Group, we love marketing manager roles. They are fun because they combine the expertise from a variety of different types of roles we fill all into one role.
Employee burnout is a big problem and it seems to be increasing. It prevents employees from being engaged and it hinders employee performance. If you aren’t discussing these challenges within your organization, you should.
Who has time to onboard new employees? Your first thought is probably, “Not me!” I mean, you are hiring a new employee because you don’t have the time to do all the work, right?
Varying personalities bring different ways of thinking and different ways of doing things to an organization. It can create a well-rounded team and it provides potential for great collaboration and innovation.
That’s a question we often get asked and it is never a simple yes or no. As you evaluate your current position and future career goals, you need to be honest with yourself.

Opposites attract, right? This is what we’ve all heard our whole lives but do they really attract? Actually, no. According to science, opposites don’t attract. But, that doesn’t mean we should hire people that think alike, talk alike and act alike.
