Sunday reading for June 8, 2014:
1. Betsy Winkler has a great post up on TLNT highlighting several behaviors you’ll want to avoid if you want to be a great people manager. To be a great manager one ultimately has to build credibility, and Winkler’s piece here does a great job of highlighting pitfalls new managers will want to avoid in order to ultimately obtain it. You can read the full piece here.
2. Kinetix CHRO Kris Dunn has a great piece up on Fistful of Talent outlining the job posting landscape, and how Linkedin’s recent announcement that it is entering the job aggregation space may change it forever. I loved this post because it paints a pretty clear picture of how companies make money in the jobs space (job postings, aggregation, and resume databases), and touches on the implications for the job market is Linkedin is successful in building an economic graph – ultimately turning itself into a platform that provides all the world’s open jobs to all the world’s workers. This is a really good one. Check it out here.
3. Companies are currently (or soon will be) in the process of interviewing and hiring summer interns. With that in mind, I wanted to share a great post I read this morning from WeComply highlighting some advice all employers would do well to follow if they are thinking of hiring unpaid summer interns. Check out the full piece here to make sure that your intern program is FLSA compliant, and most importantly remember that when in doubt it’s best to pay at least the minimum wage.
