The next big trend in content marketing Visual Content, quite an oft used term in online media, is one of the strongest weapons for content strategy in 2015. On an average, consumers find images more grasping than content in a lengthy text format. Research shows that human brain remembers 80% of what is seen in contrast to 20% of what is read because human brain processes an image or a visual 60,000x faster to text. Hence with visual content you get to make your audience and visitors more engaged with higher chances of conversion. Content marketing is at its peak, and there is no sign of slowing down. As per Forrester Research, annually content is speeding up at a rate of 200 percent. Every industry is turning to content to allure consumers, which has naturally led to the evolution in content marketing strategy to keep up with the demand for more sophisticated and advanced content. While ‘original and fresh articles’ could suffice the need for ‘quality content’ a year ago, the web has become overcrowded with such content, and now we need to innovate to stand out. Which explains the necessity for visual content. HubSpot recently created an infographic that shows more than 2,460,000 pieces of content are shared in Facebook every minute, 3,472 images pinned, 277,000 tweets shared, and 347,222 photos shared on WhatsApp and videos in YouTube.

With improved global economy, the competition to pool the best talents is ever-increasing. As we are heading towards the year end, companies retune their financial plans and strategies. HR professionals cannot afford to get bogged down by regular HR issues. A competent HR and sourcing requires exploring the opportunities, possibilities and threats to revive a well-versed and progressive HR plan. Let’s mull over few key HR trends for the year 2015: Retention and Recruiting: Employees will be more open to look at new possibilities and avenues with soaring confidence. As a result, retention would be a major concern. Contrariwise, joblessness scenario improves which would create a tug and war situation between engaging the best talent and available job. In coming years starting 2015, work force intelligence in HR will spot the areas like: 1) Earmarking the employee with considerable good track record and their chances of quitting. 2) Identifying the consultancies and other recruitment sources to provide the best performers. 3) Creating a missing link between performance, compensation and recruitment to influence retention. As we move ahead, developing precise and skillful hiring, predicting turnover and identifying organizational talents would be the improved responsibilities of HR. Generation Z to get preference: We are looking at a workforce born between 1994 and 2010 who is likely to be singled-out. With an increasing trend of early retirement among a sizable portion of the work force well ahead of schedule, most companies will be looking for young interns out of colleges and grad schools.

It’s the universal interview question asked by maximum (almost all) interviewers. If you are a veteran employee, this question must be the most familiar question you have come across in an interview. This ice breaker allows the interviewer to maneuver the interview process and carry on with it. An interviewee should use this question to his/her benefit. Apparently a common and simple question, its response says a lot about you. This multifaceted question can easily become a mind-boggling issue for any interviewee without preparation. This question can technically be the deciding factor, and must be planned and well thought out. Skip Freeman, President and CEO, HTW Group show us how effectively this question can be divided and answered and win over the interviewer. A brief career synopsis is the best way to start your interview. Talk about your accomplishments. This should be at par to your profile and should also emphasize the bottom-line impact for the probable company. Finish it off by highlighting your aim. Talk about the next professional goal you would like to accomplish which should be pertinent to your new profile. The information you have already mentioned in your CV is not what you want to read out in an interview. The interviewer has in all likelihood read that while screening you for the interview. Make it conversational and spontaneous. Come up with responses that would make your interviewer look forward to talk to you rather than to ‘interview’ you. Most interviews are typically done, and interviewers almost expect a clichéd response to most interview questions. Break the chain and make it an interactive session, within...
