Criminal Background Searches

Started this discussion. Last reply by Betsy Park Sep 20, 2011. 2 Replies

We staff primarily in the Medical field, so a background investigation is relevant to just about every position we staff. If we are staffing a position and a background search is done via the County…Continue

Betsy Park commented on Debbie Fledderjohann's blog post 'Candidates Experience Discrimination After Just One Month Unemployed'
"I have to agree with both Andrew and Randall as well. Both very valid points. I have encountered literally hundreds who have been laid off over the past few years. The general consensus amongst clients seems to be that if it has been less than 1…"

"The Company was looking for a front office "person" and were very clear about being very gender neutral in the job duties. While it wasn't part of the job description, the Company policy of "wearing pantyhose or stockings are…"

Bipolar Recruitment

It finally happened! The call is made, the client – after months of wooing, well placed marketing, phone calls, cold calls and general “keeping in touch”..the client has an opening…and wants you to be a part of their recruitment efforts. You diligently go to your internal base, search out candidates through your social media/recruiting contacts- make the calls, qualify, disqualify and requalify candidate’s interest in the position. Ask all candidates about any companies they have interviewed…See More

Betsy Park commented on Peter Leibowitz's blog post 'You want me to actually talk to someone???'
"I second your post! Depending on the situation, I will call first, then email as a back up. If someone is at their desk or has their phone, they will answer. Email can be very passive. While I respect that some of my Managers perfer email, some…"

"OUCH! Like a shot in the heart! All you can do is pull the arrow out, wipe off the blood on your trousers and keep going. Recruiting, having kids and growing old are not for sissies!"

Betsy Park replied to Mack's discussion 'Cleint Refferals'
"Absolutely! I always ask for referrals. Depending on how well you know them or how long you have been working for their organization, it usually goes like this: Mr. Client, I am so happy we have been able to make a successful fit for your opening.…"

Betsy Park replied to Sandra McCartt's discussion 'Gender Specific Position Question.'
"I have come across a similar situation with one of my first clients. The twist to this one was that my client didn't care it the employee was male or female, but if it was female, she couldn't be overly attractive. I jokingly called…"

Betsy Park replied to Katie's discussion 'Letting someone know they aren't a fit for that position'
"Honest and timely feedback, positive or negative is supremley important. As a Recruiter, there is a likely chance that an opening may come across your desk that this person may also qualify for. If you treat them with respect and honesty from the…"

"I had someone turn down a position because she was getting married. Her new husband is a "self made man" and doesn't think she should work... HUH? What year is this?!?!?"

Reasons for YES

I am new to blogging on RBC....so be nice :)Some recent encounters have prompted me to write about  this recent revelation… In Staffing, going through hundreds of resumes per week, if not more, and submitting qualified candidates to open requisitions, I often find that we look for reasons to turn down or discount a candidate. I am not the only guilty party here…I find that I run into this with Clients, Managers, Vendor Management companies and sometimes even candidates. I have been in the…See More

Sandra McCartt commented on Betsy Park's blog post 'Reasons for YES'
"The role of a recruiter is to identify the potential "nos"then bring it to a "yes".  I think if we anticipate the no response and overcome it when the candidate is presented we are doing our job.  If we don't…"
