Julia Briggs commented on Martin Ellis's blog post 'I am STUPID! - The Client Must Have Some Skin In The Game!!!!........'
"Blimey, I had the same problem with clients when on retained work as a head-hunter, so it might not be no skin in the game.  Time to play hardball given you don't normally work contingently and just pull the plug?"

Julia Briggs commented on Navid Sabetian's blog post 'My 2 cents on Linked In and its impact on recruitment industry'
"I think with 16k connections you are actually part of the problem.  That's not niche.  And it's not a network, it's a database."

Julia Briggs commented on Zachary Sines's blog post 'Sorry, need to vent.'
"Just sack the client. If these people are that rare then you don't need the client.  And not at 15%.  If you are good at your job you will get good clients.  It takes nerves of steel, but just do it. "

Julia Briggs commented on Will Thomson's blog post 'The Simple Things'
"Quite simply - if you have to tell people this stuff they shouldn't be employed in a job working with people.  This is just being professional and a decent human being and would apply to so many circumstances.  I suspect the people…"

Julia Briggs commented on Jason Alba's blog post 'What are the top 5 things job seekers do that annoy you?'
"a. say yes to being put forward and then come up with all the niggles b. try and push themselves into the right shape for the role and when you give honest and helpful feedback, get offended.... c. not listen d. be all over you like a rash when they…"

Julia Briggs commented on Feargall kenny's blog post 'Linkedin's key missing link (and what I did about it).....'
"Not for what I do, but I think it sounds really good.......and shall tweet!"

Julia Briggs commented on Sandra McCartt's blog post 'WHAT, Pray Tell Were You Thinking?'
"Hmmm......if you want to hear some candidate/client experiences of bloody awful recruiters I have them by the shedload.  Some people are just different, or rude, or arrogant etc and that is in all walks of life.  "

Julia Briggs commented on Megan Bell's blog post 'How do I cut down my interviewing and screening times?'
"30 minutes is the right length to be talking to (don't forget, you have to do a sell) to a candidate, if it is all going in the right direction.  However, never be afraid of stopping a telephone interview if a candidate has just ruled…"

Julia Briggs commented on Darryl Moore's blog post 'Reminder: Dont Play the Numbers, Build the Relationshps'
"I agree, but I cannot believe how many articles there are like this and how often this message is sent out.  And yet, it is still pretty poor in recruitment - on the client and the agency side. This is fundamentally trying to get a person to…"

Julia Briggs commented on Cora Mae Lengeman's blog post 'A MESSAGE TO COMPANIES LOOKING TO HIRE'
"Why oh why do companies hiring not take recruitment seriously.  If they did take it seriously and dedicated time and resource to it, all the other (HR) issues would fall into place.  So if they really spent time defining what they want,…"

Julia Briggs commented on HRNasty's blog post 'Rude Linkedin Introductions, you just sent one!'
"Spot on.  LI is used by people in many different ways but if you are of the 'my connections are my brand' school of thought and believe it is important to really know them and be able to vouch for them, the shoddy unfocused approach…"

Julia Briggs replied to Tim Spagnola's discussion 'Question of the Day: What would prompt you to fire a client?'
"I think far more recruiters should fire far more clients than they do.  I have worked on both sides and reckon I was always a good client with a clear brief that was signed off, very fast turnaround and detailed feedback.  And tried to…"

Julia Briggs replied to Jennifer LaVigne's discussion 'Cold Calling and your best pick up Line'
"As someone who did outbound insurance telesales in my gap year, cold calling has been part of my armoury.  However, as someone who is cold called a lot when I am on assignment I can tell you it gets really really tiresome and anything in the…"
