New infographic provides an overview of pay-per-click (PPC) and pay-per-applicant model for job market.
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 22, 2015
Recruitics, a recruitment analytics and optimization platform that makes it easy for companies to achieve amazing results from their recruitment marketing strategy, released a new infographic titled “A Guide to Performance-Based Advertising for Jobs.” This informative piece describes the different pricing models for performance-based recruitment advertising, lists the key players in the market, and defines the primary metrics needed to run a successful campaign.
Unlike the traditional model used by job boards where companies pay for a single post, job slot, or bulk posting package, performance-based advertising requires employers to pay a fee only when job seekers have viewed or applied to their jobs. This method, used by most job search engines, allows companies to set budgets to target their most in-demand positions with “sponsored jobs,” which according to SimplyHired receive up to 8x more clicks than standard search results.
“The goal of our company is to help employers connect with great talent,” stated Ken Clark, CEO of Recruitics. “For us to accomplish this goal, companies need to be aware of how performance-based advertising works and how it fits into their recruitment marketing strategy. We can then help them track key performance indicators such as cost-per-click, cost-per-apply, conversion rate, and even cost-per-hire.”

The federal government is injecting an additional $142 million into its cybersecurity budget, in an effort to prevent future cyberattacks against government and private sector targets in Canada.
Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney announced the funds at a news conference in Ottawa on Wednesday. The money will go toward battling all manner of online threats against government and private websites, including database breaches, website hacks and online fraud.
Some of the additional money will help fund a group of RCMP cybersecurity experts who will be dedicated to investigating online threats.
The beefed-up cybersecurity budget comes on the heels of several high-profile hacks, including attacks on RCMP websites, the CSIS website and a personal information breach at Ashley Madison, a Toronto-based site used to facilitate extramarital affairs.
No suspects have been arrested in any of these recent cyberattacks.
In his announcement, Blaney stressed the importance of helping private companies strengthen their security against potential cyberattacks.
“We cannot and will not let down our guard,” Blaney said in Ottawa. “We will continue to work with the private sector to establish a better partnership,” he said.
When asked, Blaney did not provide a concrete timeline for when the RCMP’s dedicated cybersecurity force will begin watching the web. He said the government already has cybersecurity measures in place, and the new funding will simply add to what’s already there.
Canadian Friends of Pearl Children founded in 2008 to help children in Africa, founder says

An Ottawa woman is defending her organization’s work after the Canada Revenue Agency revoked its charitable status due to more than $167 million in false tax receipts.
Dvora Rotenberg launched the group, “Canadian Friends of Pearl Children,” in 2008 after she visited Uganda. She said she hoped to help children in Uganda and Western Kenya who were ill.
After seven years, Canada Revenue Agency revoked the organization’s charitable status last week because it “improperly issued receipts totalling over $167 million for purported donations of cash and pharmaceuticals, which were not legitimate gifts.”
The CRA said from June 1, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2012, “very little” of the money from Rotenberg’s organization went to the work in Africa.
CRA also said the organization provided $163 million worth of tax receipts for the gifts of pharmaceuticals.
“The organization significantly over-reported the value of the alleged property, resulting in grossly inflated tax receipts to participants,” the CRA said.
“Further, the organization failed to demonstrate that it had actually received the tax-receipted pharmaceuticals or that it had carried out any charitable activities using these pharmaceuticals.”
‘Never’ a tax shelter, founder says
Rotenberg said the issues arose from her ties with Mission Life Financial, a company “established to provide innovative financing arrangements for those Canadians wishing to make donations to charity,” according to its website.
Effective business communicators know that a brisk, bulleted memo is often more effective than a multi-page document, that an executive summary is at least as important as a full report, and that a PowerPoint deck driven by a few key images and bullets works a lot better than a deck that contains a word-for-word transcript of your presentation. We all know that less is more.
Yet even those who have mastered the art of brevity in traditional business communication may have a tough time mastering online communication. Whether it’s email, chat, or a social network, word count isn’t just a matter of style—it’s often a technical requirement. Add to that the expectation that your online voice should sound conversational, engaging, or even funny, and communicating online may be the biggest (and certainly most frequently encountered) writing challenge that we face in business today. Here are some guidelines that can help make those messages productive and satisfying—rather than a liability.
Relax. The biggest difference between online writing and traditional business communications is that most online interaction is a lot less formal—especially social network updates and text messages.
Four retailers have closed their online photo websites, citing reports of a possible data breach at supplier PNI.
ANDREW FRANCIS WALLANCE / TORONTO STAR Order this photo Walmart Canada and Costco Canada along with two major U.S. drug store chains have shuttering their online photo websites in the wake of a possible data breach by their shared service provider.
Costco Canada has joined Walmart Canada and two major U.S. drug store chains in shuttering their online photo websites in the wake of a possible data breach at the supplier.
The retailers say their photo sites remain shut down as a precaution. All four sites are administered by Vancouver-based PNI Digital Media, which is owned by Staples Inc.
Customers of Costco Canada would not be affected by the potential breach as the photo site doesn’t accept credit card payments, the retailer said in a statement on its website.
However, Costco said it has suspended access to its online photo sites both in Canada and the U.S. as a temporary precaution.
“This decision does not affect any other Costco website or our in-store operations, including in-store photo centres,” the statement says.
Rite Aid Corp., a U.S. drug store chain, said it has taken down its photo site even though its customer credit card information isn’t processed by PNI. CVS Corp., another U.S. drug store retailer, has also taken its photo website offline
The internet may have opened up global markets but, as always, there is a price to pay. The prize of international markets is tantalisingly close at hand but only to those who can reach out for it.
While DNS issues continue to blight even the biggest multinational corporations and organizations, it is not just speed and internet performance that threaten user experience.
So many websites continue to have faith in the power of the English language to reach out to all countries and populations.
Their belief is mistaken.
Even in countries where proficiency in English is widespread, there is a marked preference for content in the mother tongue. As for those where it is not, the audience is not so much alienated as left untouched.
What benefits can translating your website bring and what is the true price of entry for reaching markets where other languages are spoken?
