"Paul, I have no objection to your suggestion relative to "raising the bar" on RecruitingBlogs, but it isn't up to me. I have a very small sphere of influence and where I do, I purpose to encourage others to elevate their games and not…"

Quantity vs. Quality, Reason #1 to Reject Contingency Search

Posted on May 24, 2013 at 1:42pm 34 Comments

There are many good reasons to reject Contingency Search in any form, but for today’s post, I’ll deal with only one reason.  Quantity vs Quality. In most cases, by no fault of their own, recruiters are forced to produce poor quality work or get left in the dust by other recruiters with a quicker trigger finger. The inherent weakness of Contingency Search lies in this conundrum: The more you endeavor to vet and qualify your candidates, the less likely you…

Posted on March 13, 2012 at 9:30am 0 Comments

The Only Recruiting Metric that Matters

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 10:37am 20 Comments

How do you evaluate your recruiting business? What metrics are important to you? Are there any metrics which enable you to measure your effectiveness? I recently read a recruiting site discussion where the person initiating the discussion asked “which recruiting metric is most important to you?” I read through some of the answers which were predictable; Send Outs to Placements, Calls to Send Outs or Job Orders etc. I am convinced that the most important metric and the only one I care to…

Help Me, Help You!

Posted on March 2, 2012 at 11:29am 4 Comments

I recently received a call from a $100mm medical device company wanting me to help them find a new Marketing Director. They told me that they were referred to me by a few executives within their company as “the recruiter of choice.” The first 30 minutes of the call was me asking questions to determine their ideal profile and how they envisioned attracting that caliber of talent to their company. I am quite familiar with their company and in the past have  recruited from them for some of my…
