Social Media for International Recruitment

Hello all, I've been asked to put a presentation together for an international recruiters conference that will be held on our campus. They'd like me to talk about "social media." Since this is my only parameter, I'd like to at least tailor the presentation to their purposes and make the case for using social media in international recruitment efforts. Sadly, this is not something that is done strategically on our own campus. We have international recruiters and we encourage them to utilize the…See More

Glad I can be of help. FYI - we started this site almost 3 years ago and it continues to grow. We now have over 3,400 members from 60 countries. I'm hoping this continues to be an active community for higher ed web professionals.

Website Translation Services

I've been tasked with getting some of our website translated into Spanish and Chinese. We had some pages translated into Spanish several years ago, but since multi-lingual was not part of our workflow, the content on those pages quickly became out-of-date and were just recently removed from the site.Do any of you have pages translated to other languages? Do you use a 3rd-party service to do it, or someone on campus with those skills? Or an automated service like Google translate?For those of…See More

"Thanks for responding, Erik! I agree and like your point about it being a different kind of piece without a call to action. Those projects have their place, but is sometimes hard to justify carving out the time for them."

Erik Hagen replied to Michelle L. Monti's discussion Questioning the Value of College Holiday Videos
"We did one in 2012 and 2013, but not 2014. We initially got caught up in the buzz because everyone was doing them, and it seemed like a fun idea. But this last cycle we were so busy with other projects we couldn't justify carving out the time.…"

Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop. Ideally the employee would type in their info into a form, and that text would be dropped into a predefined PDF template. I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More
