If You Had To Start It All Over...

Hi All,I do a lot of recruitment in the Semiconductor space and also with Embedded/Firmware Engineering talent.  Lately, I keep hearing all of this Cloud, Cloud, Cloud talk and about how this is the future explosion of tech.  In your opinion, if you had to start it all over, what space or professional profile would you focus on?  Where do you think the most action is and where do you expect the most growth?-BKSee More

"It is highly possible that the difference in production may have something to do with the niche people are working. If a certain niche is not in hiding mode those recruiters may be making more calls but getting less results. You did not indicate…"

"The fact is that we are dealing with to groups of equally trained guys that were equally matched in (high) performance last year, so it makes no sense that such a wide gap exists from an ability perspective.  I probably should have mentioned…"

"I would ask what experience level of the more successful vs the less successful. It's easy to make yourself busy with unproductive work. More experienced people will be better at fine-tuning the calls that are made and maybe that would explain…"

"I don't know the dynamics of your office.  Maybe those that don't call much have been in business for a long time and have large networks. Maybe the quality of the calls for those who call isn't right.  For me, the phone is…"

To Call or Not to Call- Is There Even a Question??

Hey guys,So I hear over and over that the recruiter's who spend the most time on the phone are the one's that are going to have the best chances of surviving in this game.  While it makes total sense to me that you have to compliment your emails with phone calls to make you "a real human" in the eyes of clients, the evidence (production) at my firms is pointing to the contrary.  Week after week, the recruiters with the top two or three call times/#'s of resumes sent are at the low end of the…See More

Brian Kite replied to Brian Kite's discussion 'Recruitment ADD? You're F'ing Crazy...'
