"There is always going to be a need for TPR's as long as we have business cycles and hiring has peaks and valleys within an organization. Any company that has an internal recruiting team big enough to handle hiring peaks is going to have a…"
"CB you are a machine. That is amazing volume for one person. A big part of the cost equation for clients is not only fees, it is the cost of interviewing. Travel costs & management time can be very expensive, one way I think…"
"This is an interesting discussion. I operate in a small niche within the industry as a recruiter specializing in sourcing executive development programs with transitioning military officers. Even so, I think my experience is not too…"
I am in a good mood. I sold a buggy whip today to one of the five largest corporations on the planet. Thankfully they have not yet gotten the word that I am an anachronism that can easily be replaced by a talent…"
"KC, your argument to clients is that with an effective social media effort the need for TPR's is reduced, why you chose a blog site dominated by TPR's to promote that pitch escapes me, but I guess that is why I am not…"
"KC the benefit of SM to third party recruiters is still unproven. You have hitched your wagon to social media in recruiting in much the same way as the investors of the Chicago Carbon Credit exchange hitched their wagon to global…"
"It seems that anyone who questions that recruiting is evolving into a social media driven industry is branded a luddite on this forum. Based on what I have read here and in some of the articles on other forums the SM tool of…"

"Greg, the mistake was mine, I just assumed your post was instructional as so much of what you have done in the past has been. On a couple of occasions I have had my team watch your videos for training, they are that good. Keep up the good work.…"

"Derek Jeters agent has no doubt already figured out what other teams would be willing to pay him. Although it is going to bruise his ego a bit, he is going to get his 3,000th hit wearing pin stripes, because he has more value to the Yankees than any…"
You have been defending this blog like it was your senior thesis, let it go. When your thoughts on the industry reach the level where they are held to be ground breaking and significant by the community you will know, because someone will…"
