Fair_Ribbons.jpgAs we approach the middle of the year, I thought I’d use one of our blog posts to thank you for reading and sharing our blog. I'm always interested to see which posts interest you. Sometimes I guessed a post would be popular, sometimes they catch me by surprise.

These are the five posts that you and other subscribers read and shared the most this year and hit on the topics that are on your mind.

I want to thank you for taking the time to read our blog. We try really hard to always publish information that we think will be useful to you and it means a lot that you like it. If there’s a topic that you’d like us to write about you can send me an email, or leave a suggestion in the comments section.

And now, here are your favorite blog posts from the year so far:

The Top Recruiting Channels for 2016 – another one taken from the pages of our 2016 McQuaig Global Talent Recruitment Survey, this posts shows you which channels companies are using the most, and which ones deliver the best candidates. You tell me why they don’t match.

Thanks again for reading our blog. I’m looking forward to sharing more great ideas in the second half of the year. I hope you’ll tell me what you think of the topics we explore in the comments section of each post. And don’t forget, if there’s a topic that you’re hoping we’ll explore, please let me know.
