The Robot-Proof Recruiterby Katrina Collier
The Robot-Proof Recruiter is a survival guide for recruitment & sourcing professionals!
Published by Kogan Page on Aug 3, 2019. Shortlisted for a Business Book Award in HR & Management.
In a world of work where recruiters are constantly hearing that their role is at risk from AI, robotics and chatbots, it has never been more important to effectively attract and recruit the right people. Leveraging the power of social media and digital sourcing strategies is only part of the solution, and simply posting a job or sending a LinkedIn InMail is no longer enough. The Robot-Proof Recruiter shows you how to use the tools that reveal information that can be used to grab a potential candidate’s attention among the overwhelming volume of material online. Full of expert guidance and practical tips, this book explains what works, what doesn’t, and how you can stand out and recruit effectively in a world of technology overload.
The Robot-Proof Recruiter will enable you to become the recruiter that candidates trust and the one they want to talk to. It contains essential guidance on overcoming obstacles – including how to recruit without an existing online presence, how to work effectively with hiring managers to improve the candidate experience, and how to use technology to support the candidate’s journey from initial outreach, to application, to employee, and through to alumnus. This is an indispensable book for all recruitment professionals and HR practitioners who want to recruit the right people for their organisation.

Tweets from people outside recruitment:
I speed read it in release so I could write an amazon review and I started rereading last week as I want to include it in a training programme and I’m loving it even more that the first time. So much great stuff of benefit in and outside recruitment

Have finished reading @KatrinaMCollier ‘s book #RobotProofRecruiter and would recommend this to any HR or L&D professional as it impacts almost all specialisms. I’m a generalist, and no specialist recruiter, so it was a great read & enhanced my own knowledge and made me think.

* Recently Amazon UK started delivering books in non-recyclable plastic jiffy bags 😢 As someone who spends my dog walk picking up plastic litter, I had to give you a better option! Hive.co.uk is a UK tax payer, supports local book stores and uses recyclable packaging with their free UK delivery.
