Gordon Alderson commented on Martin Ellis's blog post 'How to Choose a Headhunter - Great questions to test them...'
"Martin, Here's a couple more good questions for our clients:- How quick, complete and fool-proof is your briefing method and technology? How will you ensure that the decision that I make about the preferred candidate is not over-ruled by others…"

Gordon Alderson commented on Greg Savage's blog post 'Some hiring managers just don’t get it!'
"Greg All consultants (including recruitment consultants) have clients from hell. When that is the case for our sanity's sake we need to let them go. However, some clients might look like clients from hell then when we genuinely help them by…"

Gordon Alderson commented on Greg Savage's blog post 'Some hiring managers just don’t get it!'
"Greg, I felt somewhat sad when I read your article. We are working on developing a SaaS-based tool that will overcome the issues you refer to in your article.  I have used this as a MS Excel-based tool for the past 15 years.  It works but…"

Gordon Alderson replied to Tim Spagnola's discussion 'Question of the day: Can a candidate's sparking personality and interpersonal skills make up for lack of experience?'
"So many Hiring Mistakes can be solved with better diligence when taking recruitment briefs. That requires access to the inner-most thoughts of the Hiring Manager and the Final Decision Maker. After all they are the subject specialists. We are…"
