"And that is the key right there - I am NOT HR.  I am an internal recruiter, reporting to a Director of Recruiting. Our entire focus is recruiting.  I leave HR to the HR peeps.  There is a difference, as you said."

In-House Recruiters/HR v Agency Recruiters

Yesterday I saw a tweet from @greg_savage referencing his blog post about HR and Internal Recruiters needing to lift their game. There were some decent points, some of which I've talked about in other posts. I actually think that some of Greg's observations are also true of agency recruiters too! It's also important to realise there is a difference between an HR…See More

Candidate interview Preparation

Let me start by saying that I think interviews are a two-way process where its as much for the Interviewer (company) to sell themselves as it is the interviewee (candidate) However all too often its apparent that candidates don't:Do enough research about the company where they are applying for a jobConsider why they want the job, orHave any questions prepared to ask at the interview. This all seems like basic stuff but it's surprising how many candidates aren't prepared and haven't thought…See More

Candidate interview Preparation

Posted on April 29, 2011 at 1:25pm 0 Comments

Let me start by saying that I think interviews are a two-way process where its as much for the Interviewer (company) to sell themselves as it is the interviewee (candidate)

 

However all too often its apparent that candidates don't:

  • Do enough research about the company where they are applying for a job
  • Consider why they want the job, or
  • Have any questions prepared to ask at the interview.

 

This all seems like basic stuff but…

Posted on January 4, 2011 at 8:30am 15 Comments

I read a blog post and the content got me thinking about the recruitment industry and how much of it appears to be very short term in its outlook. I don't mean to generalise and I know there a lot of good…
