Whether you attended Indeed’s event last week or simply followed along in the Twittersphere with #IndeedInteractive, you were sure to learn a lot. Mainly, that Indeed is a recruitment must; but also that the recruitment industry is constantly on the move. Here are 10 takeaways (in tweets!) from #IndeedInteractive:

  1. Recruitment and HR folks sure know how to work hard and play hard! (via @JoshGampel)

  1. Recruit for value and business impact, not for cost efficiency. The cheapest recruitment source may not produce the best quality candidates. (via @AshleyCheretes @JenniferMcClure @Accenture)

  1. The fastest growing search term on Indeed is “remote.” At talent shortages emerge, an obvious place to look. (via @JenniferMcClure @JustinWolfers)

There were so many other things discussed at #IndeedInteractive – it was truly an amazing and valuable event. If you didn’t get to attend this year, we’d suggest you go next year! And if you can’t make it, be sure to follow along with us on Recruitics on Twitter.
