"Interesting article that sounds familiar only the names have changed.  Remember back in the late 1990's when Monster was first dating recruiters to build their financial pockets and then saying that "Monster is going to replace the…"

True Unemployment Rate on 10/5/2012 is 14.7%

Posted on October 5, 2012 at 11:30am 8 Comments

This morning it was widely reported that the "unemployment rate" dropped to 7.8% - and that most of the drop was "the fact that many people simply stopped looking for a job."  That comment is very disrespectful to unemployed people who are working harder than ever to find a job.



The rate that is reported as the unemployment rate by the Bureau of Labor Statistics…

Hiring Managers Say The Craziest Things – Work Week!!

Posted on May 29, 2012 at 7:03pm 0 Comments

Since 1981, I have worked with over 3000 hiring managers across the United States.  Most of whom have never been trained how to effectively interview.  If they haven’t been taught how to interview, they certainly have not been taught how to select the best fit.  Therefore, they bring their own unique interview techniques and questions to the interview party.  Of course, the candidates bring their own special treats to the interviewing party; and I will share some of those also.  Doesn’t it…

Every Company Has A Recruiting Strategy (some just don’t know it!)

Posted on May 28, 2012 at 6:00pm 0 Comments

“Plan your work.  Work your plan.”  I’ve seen those words attributed to the great Green Bay Packer Football (not futbol) Coach, Vince Lombardi.  Trainers have applied those words to all sorts of training exercises, generally in business.  Why are they universally understood?  The quote applies to all areas of our lives.  It especially applies to successful recruitment programs.

 

What is the basic premise of Behavioral Interviewing?  Once we find a way to be successful…

Let’s Call “Diversity” a Different Word - “Blending”

Posted on May 6, 2012 at 11:00pm 2 Comments

A whole industry has been built around diversity.  Is that good or bad? 

 

Obviously when the Diversity industry was formed inside and outside of recruitment, it was critically needed.  Laws were written to make it illegal to discriminate against the protected classes of race, color, gender, religious beliefs, national origin, disability, genetic information, pregnancy or veteran status.  These laws need to stay in place because old habits are hard to break.  However,…

Hiring Managers Say The Craziest Things – Lunch Interview

Posted on May 1, 2012 at 8:00pm 1 Comment

Since 1981, I have worked with over 3000 hiring managers across the United States.  Most of whom have never been trained how to interview.  Therefore, they bring their own unique interview techniques and questions to the interview party.

 

This is the beginning of a series of quick stories that my candidates have experienced.  The names have been changed - if there is even a name attached.  Of course, the candidates bring their own special treats to the interviewing party and I…
