The More Things Change, The More They Stay the Same

Posted on August 3, 2010 at 9:54pm 2 Comments

Recently, I was looking over some of my recruiting material from about 14+ years ago. I reviewed all the sections about sourcing candidates (from cold calls to referrals), picking up job leads from newspapers (remember those) to references and many other "old school" techniques. Here is what I realized; Nothing today is really NEW!

Think about it; what "inventions" are really new? Data storage; sure the way we store the data has changed from… Continue

Village People Unite, but Please NO Chaps at Work!

Posted on February 6, 2010 at 8:26pm 1 Comment

It has been way too long since my last post on RBC, I miss my village! Village? Let me explain.

This week my company kicked off our annual meeting, discussing 2009 successes and 2010+ plans. One of our main issues (like so many other recruiting firms) is everyone working towards common "team" goals. We are in an individual rewards environment (for the most part), but always chant the mantra of "go team".

Being the prolific and… Continue

Don't Get Scrooged This Season

I wrote this poem last night for my blog and wanted to share with all my friends on RecruitingBlogs, I hope you enjoy!

T’was the month of Christmas and all across the land,

clients and competitors were seeking the upper hand.

When all of the sudden to ACME Inc’s delight,

their big push for 2009 came into the light.

Recession, layoffs and hiring freezes they faced;

all were behind them, they picked up the pace.

But 18 days in December,… Continue

How many people will get up at x time tomorrow, drive x route, drink x drink, work x plan, have x meeting, drive home at x time, eat supper at x time and go to bed at x time?

Routine kills creativity!

This was a conclusion that my team and I came too several weeks ago. It was right before I was leaving for Recruitfest and I was explaining the non traditional set up and my excitement leading up to the event. One team… Continue

Big Shoes Leave Lasting Footprints!

Posted on August 17, 2009 at 10:27pm 1 Comment

Do you remember what you had for breakfast yesterday? What about lunch? These are little things and you may or may not remember the answers to these two questions.

Now, do you remember your first car? Your first date? The birth of your first child? These are big things and will have a lasting footprint on your life. How do we make ourselves so BIG, so memorable to people around us. Here are few ideas;

1. Differentiation: Separate yourself from competitors. If they are… Continue

Hi Alex,

I noticed the job you are looking for an Applicant Tracking System. In this regard, I wanted to introduce Simplicant to you, an applicant tracking system (ATS) that I assure will simplify the hiring process at your organization. Every client gets personal attention and support in addition to free use of the lite version of the product without commiting any payments.

It is extremely simple to get started by signing up, after which you can access and manage resumes sent to you from anywhere on the Internet. I would also like to arrange a demo for you at the time of your convenience.

To sign-up, simply visit
To view a tour of how Simplicant simplifies your life, please visit

I am confident that you will definitely enjoy the simplification of the recruiting process offered by Simplicant, and will subsequently refer Simplicant to your friends and other hiring managers in your company.

Let me know the time of your convenience and i can arrange a Live Demo for you. Thanks.

Farhan Ahmed
