Here’s what happened in the world of hiring and employment this week:

  1. Planning on a long-term career in social media? Doubtful. A study by Workopolis shows social media jobs will become obsolete in 10 years.
  2. New research suggests that posting your religion online could cost you that job.
  3. INSEAD’s new Global Talent Competitiveness Index provides an interesting look into which countries are the most competitive in attracting, recruiting and retaining worldwide talent.
  4. An example of how treating your employees poorly can damage your employer brand: A Pizza Hut manager was fired for refusing to open on U.S. Thanksgiving.
  5. Let’s compare with some good employer branding for Loblaw’s who were applauded for continuing to hire grads during the recession.

Have a fantastic weekend!
