LinkedIn Account Upgrade?

Thinking about upgrading my account, any thoughts or suggestions? I actually think I would go more to one of the "business" plans vs. the "talent" plans, what do some of you have? Or just stay with…Continue

My Ode to Recruiting *

I suppose I could probably write something for each letter that describes some of the things I don’t love about recruiting, but thinking about what I have come to love about it over the last few…Continue

"Great post, Kelly. 1. Just had a candidate rejected after company talked to "someone" at the very recently left job. Not glowing. No kidding, candidate hated the position (that wasn't what he was promised) and quit.  2. You…"

"Thanks, Kelly. Perhaps said cautious posters have justifiable concern that one may: "Get downright Human Torch on they ass. i.e., 'FLAME ON,************!'" :) :)"

Amber replied to Kelly Blokdijk's discussion 'Recruiter wants to know all about your status'
"The "I look forward to work with you" was probably a typo, then. Which doesn't help the email be any better. I do email potential candidates, but never ask so many detailed questions in the initial one. If we end up being able to…"

"There should probably also be a requirement that anyone posting a blog without enabling comments list the reason why comments require approval. "

"Blog posts that require "approval" for comments should be flagged as such, as I would probably not bother commenting on them."

I have been visiting RBC on a regular basis for about 8 months now. Today, I had the occasion to use a service that I was introduced to via the network here. And then I realized there were quite a few things that the community here has brought to me, and how thankful I am that there have been so many willing to share.


Blogs, posts, and comments: A bunch of "regular" participants on here have brought knowledge, encouragement, and LAUGHTER! Sandra, Amy,…


Background Checks

Posted on September 22, 2011 at 3:31pm 5 Comments

Hi Everyone,

I have a client who will probably need a company to do a few background checks soon. Any recommendations? I'm not familiar with any. I think they will want to find one who can provide the basic employment screening and offer a drug testing option.
