Recently, job searches got a whole lot easier — more data-fueled — thanks to Google Jobs API. Add in Google Cloud Talent Solution’s partnership with Symphony Talent, and enhanced search capabilities to attract, hire and engage high-quality talent got better and faster still.
Raise your hand if you’re still working on your new year, new you goals. It’s almost impossible not to catch the motivation that comes about each January. It’s a chance to start fresh and be your best self. In fact, throughout the year, we often create moments of change for ourselves with the intent to rejuvenate our lives. This can be a fresh coat of paint, a new haircut, spicing up your commute with a more scenic route, or tidying up your living or work space.
If you build it, they might not come. Let’s let that sink in.
The truth is, job advertising is the biggest portion of your recruiting budget. To make the most of it, you may have overhauled — among other things — your career website.

In recent years past, the trending industry concept has been to make recruiters “think like marketers” and “act like marketers.” But marketing overall changes so rapidly that even marketers themselves find it challenging to stay ahead.

I remember October 25, 2016 like it was yesterday, but July 1, 2018 was my turning point.
I joined Symphony Talent on October 25 as a Quality Analyst for what is now X-Cloud Employee. I was on the payroll of a different company then and didn’t quite feel at home at ST. But on July 1, 2018, I officially joined the family. The journey has been an adventurous one – filled with learnings and opportunities to grow. Today, I’m a proud member of the X-Cloud team.
