Screening Out the Takers from the Candidate Pool

I recently saw a great TED Talk by Adam Grant that was just posted this month via the TED Talk app on my AppleTV. Unfortunately, there isn’t a YouTube link for the TED Talk yet, but I found a link to a similar talk he gave on the same topic at ZeitgeistMinds called “Givers, Takers, and Matchers.”…See More

Measuring Quality of Hire in Recruiting

Per the Global Recruiting Trends 2017 by LinkedIn, in the top 3 of recruiting metrics we see “length of stay” and “hiring manager satisfaction.” Both of these point towards quality of hire. Another main…See More

VR: New Possibilities for Virtual Reality in Recruiting

I love connecting the right people with the right company (based upon culture, passion, and skills) and I love process improvement.  I believe that Talent Acquisition, Employee Engagement, Employment Brands, & Leadership can be so much more (than it is).  I believe every great company is made up of great people.  Finding great people is hard. Retaining great people is harder.  I believe in challenging the status quo to find better ways of recruiting and retaining talent...based on research, testing, & metrics.

We should be using modern marketing (using direct marketing theory with metrics), copywriting, transparency, Whys (causes), USPs (Unique Selling Propositions), recruiting videos, employee empowerment, tribe building, and much more.

I would love to be a Talent Acquisition Manager / Recruiting Manager for a small to medium sized company with a few staff members. I dream of creating a high performing recruiting function that hires the best people & create a recognized employer of choice by our target ideal employees.

Are You Enabling Bad Behavior From Hiring Managers?

Posted on November 23, 2016 at 11:00am 0 Comments

I have had a lot of success “training” hiring managers into using proper processes and procedures. That is what we have to do as recruiters…we need to train hiring managers to a certain degree.

I don’t mean giving them training sessions on the illegal questions to ask during interviews. I don’t mean giving them training sessions of any kind.

I mean getting hiring managers to give timely feedback on candidates submitted for their review.

Job Posting Optimization and Best Practices

Posted on November 8, 2016 at 11:31am 0 Comments

The first thing potential job seekers see is the job title. It is the job titles that come up when searches are done on company job boards and more importantly on career sites (like Monster, Careerbuilder, etc.). So to stand out and get the best from those pools of talent, it is vitally important to have great job…
