In a world of work where recruiters are constantly hearing that their role is at risk from AI, robotics and chatbots, it has never been more important to effectively attract and recruit the right people. Leveraging the power of social media and digital sourcing strategies is only part of the solution, and simply posting a job or sending a LinkedIn InMail is no longer enough. The Robot-Proof Recruiter shows you how to use the tools that reveal information that can be used to grab a potential candidate's attention among the overwhelming volume of material online. Full of expert guidance and practical tips, this book explains what works, what doesn't, and how you can stand out and recruit effectively in a world of technology overload. The Robot-Proof Recruiter will enable you to become the recruiter that candidates trust and the one they want to talk to. It contains essential guidance on overcoming obstacles - including how to recruit without an existing online presence, how to work effectively with hiring managers to improve the candidate experience, and how to use technology to support the candidate's journey from initial outreach, to application, to employee, and through to alumnus. This is an indispensable book for all recruitment professionals and HR practitioners who want to recruit the right people for their organization.

"The Robot-Proof Recruiter is a fantastic call-to-action for any recruiters looking to keep the edge on our AI competition. Full of insight from Katrina Collier and leading industry peers, and backed up with examples, easy-to-do-why-don't-you-do-it-already ideas and data, as a practitioner I highly recommend this to anyone looking for ways to up their game as a rounded recruiter, in-house or agency."--Sophie Power, Senior Talent Professional & DBR Community Admin
"Recruitment was, is and always has been about human interactions, yet more than ever is affected by tools and AI. The Robot-Proof Recruiter shares a ton of practical tips for recruiters and hiring managers on how to improve the candidate experience, communicate better, and use technology better. It is a great guide that is worth reading and re-reading - every time you will discover something new."--Jan Tegze, Senior Recruiting Manager, Author of Full Stack Recruiter, and Founder of Sourcing.Games.
"I'll preface this by saying that I don't enjoy most books on recruitment, as the industry tends to idolise outdated techniques and ideologies. Though once I started reading The Robot-Proof Recruiter I couldn't put it down. I found myself nodding and smiling the whole way through the book. I hope every recruiter reads this and re-learns the art of being 'human' in the ever changing technology driven recruitment landscape. A must read for all people in all facets of hiring, be it agency, internal or a hiring manager."--Troy Hammond, Founder & CEO of Talent Army
"Just when you thought we didn't need another 'how to recruit' book, along comes Katrina Collier's The Robot-Proof Recruiter. With her feet planted firmly on the ground, Collier's background in experienced and targeted recruiting empowers her stance that there are just some things that technology can't do better than a recruiter who is passionate and who more importantly, gives a damn about talent. The Robot-Proof Recruiter has a place in every recruiter's library - especially those who believe that robots are coming for their job!"--Chris Hoyt, President & Co-Owner, CareerXroads
"The Robot-Proof Recruiter is a well-researched argument against the technology-first craze of the 21st century. Katrina Collier makes a compelling case for human-powered leadership at the front and centre of the hiring process, ensuring applicants and candidates are neither forgotten nor marginalized."--Laurie Ruettimann, HR Writer, Speaker & Entrepreneur and Podcast Host of Let's Fix Work
"This book is a 'friendly' reminder that no amount of technology and data can take the place of human interaction. In The Robot-Proof Recruiter, Katrina Collier details the skills needed by today's full-life-cycle talent acquisition teams need to stay relevant and not become obsolete. This book contains great practical advice, tested examples, and recommendations even the most seasoned recruiter will find valuable."--Jackye Clayton, TA Speaker & Trainer and Director of Customer Success at HiringSolved
"The Robot-Proof Recruiter is an outstanding how-to guidebook for recruiters who want to stay ahead of the curve. Katrina Collier has pulled together a valuable and accessible resource - a great contribution to the industry."--Hung Lee, Curator, Recruiting Brainfood
"Coming from the HR vendor space, I am incredibly grateful to Katrina Collier for designing the ultimate framework for a healthy cooperation between recruiters and technology. The Robot-Proof Recruiter offers a practical guide on a recruitment process from A to Z, helping to successfully navigate the online world and build a humane recruitment process. Packed with real life examples and Katrina's brilliant humour, the book is a pleasure to read; it also gives the voice to many incredible people from the industry. Must-read for all the HR professional of the modern age."--Yulia Kuzmane, Speaker and Director of Sales & Customer Success at Amazing Hiring
