Indeed there was a time not so long ago where there wasn’t a Smartphone, ATS, or even the CLOUD. Back in the day a lot of us used Fax Machines, and Gigantic Rolodexes. How have the times changed for you? Are you still an Old School, New Skool or a little of both?

The New Skool approach is through use of Social Networking with nearly 89% of companies utilizing some sort of social networking platform for their recruiting needs. One New School is example is LinkedIn. Their recent InMail Open Rate change of 14% for users of their Recruiter product, is an example of how even New Skool is making changes and quickly.
