Have you used Facebook Ads for Recruiting?
I know I haven't but I probably should, as Facebook remains by far the largest, engaged and most important social network on the planet. A report from Hootsuite, shared on Recruiting Brainfood last week, showed us that there are THIRTEEN paid social options on Facebook.
We're going to use this week's Brainfood Live ON Air to talk about each one - what are they, when to use them and how to get the best results from them.
With Fanny Comba, Jelmer Zuidema, Jelmer Koeppalmans and Andrew Bryce

There was never any chance that we could get to the end of 2019 and not do at least one show covering Brexit.
Whether you voted Leave or Remain or whether you are now Leave or Remain (or something else), all of us might find common ground in accepting that it's likely to be a profound change in the UK economic, regulatory, cultural and political environments.
It's time to forecast the scenarios and get some expert advice on how to prepare for the various futures that will become clear in only a few more weeks.
Adam and I are joined this week by regulatory expert and academic Sarah Lieberman in a 1 hour special.

Do you worry about the impact of AI & Automation?
The answer should be 'damn right' because these foundational technological trends are sure to have pervasive impact on all the work we do. The question is
- which sectors most affected?
- which populations most exposed?
- how / when will impact be felt?
- and what can we recruiters do to ensure OUR roles are not dis-intermediated by more efficient software and less bias robots.
This topic is way too big for Adam Gordon and I to handle by ourselves, so we've enrolled some experts in the field to help us think through the problem.
- Rob McCargow, Director of AI at PwC
- Yvette Cameron, Principal Analyst at NextGen Insights

How to make your employer brand stick?
Turns out - you don't
Real Employer Branding is about discovering what is true about the work in your business and exposing that truth the outside world, warts and all.

We're live from Hong Kong with the great team at Daxtra - CV parsing tech, and perhaps one of the first 'workforce automation' technologies to change the recruitment industry.
Featuring cameo's from my cousin Stephen Li, dialling from the UK, we were also joined by Behavioural Scientist Dr Richard Claydon for a discussion on collaboration vs connection work
It was great discussion in the chaos that is Hong Kong
