The REKRUTR Vault : The Importance of Notes In Recruiting

Last week I received a message from a candidate I placed in 2003 about where she might send a friend who was job searching. Her email indicated that her career had advanced significantly since we last met and she is someone that I might market my services to. We had a nice time catching up when I called her.  I softened my questions about her own hiring needs by  getting reacquainted. I asked about her…See More

Advice for the Candidate You Can't Place : Surviving The Job They Hate

Have you ever had a candidate that you really liked but just couldn't place?  I make it a policy to be completely honest with these candidates as soon as I realize I can't help them, but it doesn't keep them from "checking in" with me from time to time. That's ok, because I can usually count on them for leads on positions they've struck out with or referrals. I try to offer…See More
