ERE’s New Legal Columnist, Kate Bischoff, Is Pretty Cool

Employment attorneys can be really cool sometimes. But, you know, only sometimes.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to one of them — Kate Bischoff.

Kate is joining the ERE community as’s new legal columnist. She’ll be bringing her expertise and insights to cover the intersection of recruiting and law. I’m excited, and I hope you are too! Check out the video below in which Kate talks about:

  • The role that compliance should, and shouldn’t, play during the hiring process
  • How lack of drug testing can be an amazing employer-branding technique
  • The perils of video-screening tools
  • Something about an eggplant and a tongue

Plus, I talk about my mullet.

Kate’s articles will soon start appearing on, and I hope you’ll take the time not only to read them but also to weigh in with your own thoughts.

Additionally, in the coming months, I aim to introduce you to other new columnists who I hope will inform as much as challenge your thinking about recruiting. Stay tuned!
