Can someone explain the trend of applicants adding a QR Code to their resumes? I get around 50 to 200 resumes per job posting, I’m not scanning your QR Code!

Posting as :

You are currently posting as works at

It's more compact than having to type out a link. Some of those have multiple links in them connecting to their socials, LinkedIn and other information. It's like a one-stop shop of sorts. It's very handy.


New modern way to look up a person 😊

Nice 👍🏻

Usually leads to linkedin profile or portfolio. Can be useful. But they should supply the link elsewhere as well so it is more clear.

It's a way to stand out from the crowd. Nothing more. I scanned one once out of curiosity and It was a personal website. It's clever but I would prefer if you only sent me the link and that's it lol

Seems to be a just a new trend people use as opposed to sending a link. Seen as more aesthetically pleasing than putting a link on you resume.

Technology nowadays makes it easier for someone find something without even typing a single letter on the keyboard. Reason why I've seen QR codes on the resumes for several times now.

I've noticed it too, it's super frustrating bc it's like...I don't have TIME to do that lol

So far I've never received one. But my friend who works in another company got at least 90 resumes this day. I don't get it.

50 to 200 resumes for 1 posting in this current market? What kind of job are you hiring for?

Hello everyone! I am looking for some advice. I was recently contacted for a Recruitment Operations Manager role for a startup company and their budget for this role is $90-130k based in SF. I have a little over a year of experience as a technical recruiter based in Southern CA who has experience recruiting and managing the process for another startup company. I’m open to moving towards more of a PM/operations role so this would be a great fit. What is your salary & YOE? What should I ask for?

I'm currently on short term disability (but not on FMLA). Prior to leave, I started interviewing. I received multiple offers... Haven't accepted one yet, but more than likely will. It's going to be a while until I'm able to get back to work. I'd like to be able to tell my mgr/team now that I'm leaving so they can prepare. I also know they can terminate me while I'm on STD and not protected by FMLA. If I give notice and they decide to terminate me on the spot, do I lose my STD benefits?

Good Morning, I am looking for recommendations around automating FMLA/STD leave requests, distributing paperwork and tracking due dates. We currently use an excel spreadsheet to track this information and distribute paperwork via email or US mail. How do your employees request leave and what tools do you use to ensure you are responding within the requirements for FMLA?


Advice- My team were all given a raise in March except me. I brought it up to my manager who recently started. First reaction was I am still new and a raise wasn’t warranted. I told him 2 other recruiters on my team started when I did. He said he would need to look into it. Today he told me 3 of my HM’s don’t feel supported (despite having the 2nd most hires) and I could either resign or go on a PIP. I’m the only minority on my team have double the req load and supporting the most dept.


My current role is likely being eliminated, so I’ve had to think about what I’d like to do for the first time in a while. I would be fine staying in an HR/TA role, However, I have started thinking about looking into roles with consulting firms. My forte is not in the technical realm, so my question is, when firms State they offer Human Capital services, are they mostly doing just HRIS implementation, or is there more to it from a strategy/development perspective?



i am pretty good at my job but am not seeing fairness in pay and can't stand my department (cool kids club/good ole boy club). I am being considered for a HR Analyst role as we speak with potential of making $20k more (HR and Talent Acquisition are separate at my company). Is it worth the jump to HR/Benefits or should I just get the experience and eventually make more money in Recruiting? I have a general background in HR but find recruiting to be super easy, to be honest.
