CITI Recruitment, winner of the The SEEK Annual Recruitment Awards (SARAs) for best Small IT Recruiter of the year have launched a digital media campaign in celebration of the accolade; offering a $2,000 AUD flight voucher from Flight Centre for candidates and 50% OFF the next placement fee for employers.
The boutique IT agency also won the coveted award last year, an award that is decided by the country’s jobseekers, recognising excellence in placement delivery and superior customer service.
Candidates are encouraged to apply before 19th of December, listing their details with CITI Recruitment. Once their application, which should include experience, availability and desired position is received, they automatically go into the draw for a $2,000 Flight Centre voucher. The lucky recipient will be announced on 19th December 2013.
For employers looking to hire in December and January, CITI is offering 50% OFF the next hire. This is welcoming news for what can usually be a quiet time for both jobseekers and those looking to recruit new talent. The savings are an extra incentive for employers to take advantage of. In addition, CITI recognises that with most other recruitment agencies closing down over the holiday season, this extra time can actually be advantageous for hiring and training. At CITI, they understand the needs of their clients, regardless of the time of year.
“We’re of course thrilled to be the SARA Small IT Recruiter of the Year two years running and this was our way of giving back” CITI’s Managing Director, Steve Wilson said. “We wanted to share in the celebrations with our clients and prospective new placement success stories.”

Brene Brown studies human connection — our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk at TEDxHouston, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

Pencil is not just a stick for drawing; it’s a gateway to multimodal interaction. You can draw something, sure, but you can also then tweak what you’ve drawn with the fingers of your non-dominant hand, smearing the image like you might charcoal, or pinch-to-zooming to activate an impromptu magnifying glass.
On Social Media Profile Pics: What are your thoughts?
I have been testing different styled profile pics across various social networks over the last couple of months and to be honest I’ve received very different responses (mostly good, actually horrible) from clients, my parents, friends, agencies and recruiters.
It’s clearly evident that your profile image is extremely important and it should very closely suit the community or network you’re choosing to socialise and communicate across - this means if you do not put your best foot forward your simply going to loose your audience and give off the wrong impression.
A week or so ago I walked into a creative project briefing, with a new agency. The Group Account Director who must have checked me out on Linkedin first actually said the following words: “You don’t look like a serial killer in person at all!” I proceeded to explain that I was performing a social media profiling experiment and it was interesting to hear his feedback. We laughed about it then, but in our time poor lives how many opportunities could we be missing, when social media (and thus advertisements ourselves) are right there at our fingertips.
