Digging in the Data


HRExaminer Weekly Edition v4.37 September 27, 2013

Feature: We’re kicking off a new series this week about the problems and opportunities of Handling Data in HR. In his first two installments, John Sumser muddies our hands in the ‘grungy part of the topic,’ by examining common issues with ATS data and website scraping. The series continues next week.

Dr. Todd Dewett highlights The Beauty of Delayed Gratification while Heather Bussing ditches the legal mumbo-jumbo in, The Secret to Good Contracts. Ravi Mikkelsen, the CEO and co-founder of jobFig, is John’s guest on HRExaminer Radio. We wrap this issue with 5-Links: Data Stuff. Enjoy.
