HR Recruitment Newsletters

With over 1.6 billion websites online and more than 4.4 million blog posts published every day, the sheer amount of content available on the internet is astounding. While this means there are tons of great insights or words of advice available to recruiters and HR professionals, it can be difficult to find high-quality, relevant resources with so much to weed through.

A final word

It’s becoming exceedingly difficult to know what content is worth reading online. With so much useless information to dig through, you could spend hours just trying to find something interesting and actionable to read.

By subscribing to HR and recruitment newsletters, you can make that pool of content much, much smaller. Never miss an important update or insight from your favorite HR thought leader by subscribing to one or to (or all) of these lists.

To avoid information overload, choose a newsletter that you think best fits your content needs. A quick, daily view like Recruiting Headlines is perfect for the recruiter with only a few minutes to spare. Or, a comprehensive, well-thought-out curated list like Recruiting Brainfood is perfect for the professional looking for a lot of content to sift through all week. And you can’t go wrong with our Harver Content Digest!

Build up your subscriptions slowly, thinking about what content gaps you’re missing and who can efficiently fill them. If you find that you’ve subscribed to a newsletter you don’t like or you’re not getting much value from, you can always unsubscribe.

Happy reading!
