Is threre really a war for talent or are Recruiters playing the shuffle game?

Posted on August 8, 2011 at 3:42pm 21 Comments

I guess the title is self explanatory. Companies are far less looking at recruiters to assess potential candidates. All they want is to steal from their competitors. If a recruiter works a certain niche market, he/she can make a good living just shuffling one person over to the competitor. Once that candidate has been with the competitor for 2-3 years (maybe more), the recruiter than takes that same candidate and shuffles him off to another competitor.There is no really 'assessment' of…

Fall Offs - Is it the recruiter's fault OR is it your organization that has problems

Posted on July 22, 2011 at 12:32pm 8 Comments

I've been recruiting for a little over 8+ years now. Fall Offs (Candidates that recruiters place into their client's job where the candidate quits within 8 weeks of start date) is something recruiter's dread as it effects their overall compensation.

 

My question is the following? Is it the recruiter's fault that the recruiter did not find the perfect fit candidate for the client (which resulted in a fall off) OR is there a problem with the client's…

The other side of SPLIT placements... Can exporting candidates build brand awareness?

Posted on September 23, 2010 at 8:53am 4 Comments

I just read Jerry's post on SPLIT placements and I thought I comment through a blog post. The business model of split placements seems to be challenged by many members of the recruiting community. Some recruiters love split placements while others shy away from it and avoid it like the plague. For me, a lot of my business is through split placements and I love the concept. Don't get me wrong - I encourage recruiters to do split placements. I believe it provides a good… Continue

Entreprenuer or Working for somebody?

Posted on September 16, 2010 at 8:30am 4 Comments

There are really two sides to an entrepreneurial venture. Either a) you find some partners and invest money into a venture that eventually will become successful or b) invest your own cash and run with the idea. I've seen and know many serial entrepreneurs that have made it successful in their career path. It is not easy. Sometimes, the entrepreneurial path is so frustrating that we give up and want to work for someone else. The problem is can entrepreneurs really work for somebody else? Their… Continue
