Barbara Goldman commented on Kelly Blokdijk's blog post 'Talent Shortage or Trust Shortage?'
"This is a thoughtful post. I agree. Could it be insecurity? Make the hiring process more difficult, and doing stupid things like calling references before even interviewing the candidate, etc. The number of e-mail assessments is unbelievable. Just…"

Evil Confused Part 3

Posted on August 2, 2013 at 11:42am 5 Comments

One week from today, Suzie started her fit.

Frank told Suzie to do her job, and not rely on gossip as a source for references.

Like the Tasmanian devil on Saturday morning, Suzie started to spin. Her thin skin couldn't take it. She was the HR person!  This was her domain! How dare Frank tell her what to do!

Using her power, she behaved badly. Her target was Frank. Her reach was far greater. She spun and spun and spun until she drew attention to herself. Frank looks like…


Evil Surfaced Again Part 2

Before you begin this story, pull out your hankie. You are either going to weep, or burst out laughing. 

After all the drama, John agreed to take the job.

I THOUGHT all was well. The other shoe just hit the floor.

To bring you up to date:

At this point in the story, we have a contrite Frank, who will now  measure his words carefully, an Exec VP who is looking askance at…

Hi Barb, thanks for coming on The Recruiting Animal Show. I had a good time except for that terrible problem with the sound in the middle of the show. It turned out that once cell phone was causing it. I should have systematically gone through every number. There were 15 people on the line and it would have been tedious but in the end we were off a long time anyway. If you search @animal on Twitter you can see the comments. And the recording is already up tho I will put an edited version on my blog to take out that bad part.

Wed Dec 4 NOON EST - make sure that you listen to at least bits of old shows. People will challenge you bluntly and there might be shouting and you have to enjoy that kind of hard play if you are going to enjoy being a guest

It was great to chat with you today. Are you on twitter? I'd be interested in staying connected and up to date on the topic of helping employers behave better with recruiters. I'd also be intersted in any forums or sites that you think host good discussions on that topic
