El Dave Bobblehead Charity Fundraiser, "Make A Wish" Foundation

Can Bobble Head's rule the world? probably not, but they can make you laugh your way to the top. Help us think of a creative way to use this idea to raise money for charity.

Julia Stone commented on Ian Harvey's blog post 'Active & Passive Candidates - What Are They?'
"Paul, My model works and my clients see the value in everything I do. No need for sarcasm, perhaps that is part of your problem. I am saying go out and find new clients that respect what you do if you are that angry at the model you support."

"Sorry I couldn't respond before now, but like Jerry & Pam I am having a record breaking quarter and simply didn't have the time. I still don't but decided this would be a welcome break from the activity. We walk away from clients…"

"I wish I had time to call and see if things were picking up, but we are swamped as I know you are!   Great advice and very Zen like of you Jerry."

I Did it! I really did it!

I really enjoyed the diversity of RecruitFest this year. It was different than years past, but good in its own right. One of the light bulb moments for me was the discussion around auto-notification of candidates directly from the ATS. Well, I am terrified of it. Afraid to even check the little box that kindly offers to send an email rejecting the candidate for me. Why? I should love that this system is offering to do my dirty work, but I don't. So I tell myself I will get in touch with each…See More

Why do people stay at the same job?

Posted on June 8, 2010 at 2:33pm 5 Comments

I am always curious what makes someone stay in the same job for more than a few years. For me, it is passion, challenge, and the chance to be rewarded for being very good at what I do. That is why I run an agency, and that is why I like what I do. But I have to trade off team work (sometimes I am solo, sometimes I am not), and financial security (can you say 2009??), and I cannot easily specialize in one piece of the puzzle. That last one makes me tired some days.



But enough about me,… Continue

Riding the Rip Tide

Posted on June 2, 2010 at 12:04pm 2 Comments

I have been caught in real riptides. I have encountered them swimming, diving and boating. It is terrifying the first time you experience it. But when you learn more about the forces at work, you realize that you can go more places than everyone else if you can navigate them. For us, it means you can get access to candidates and clients that might not otherwise be open to talking with us.



This is a year of extremes, we hear it in every conversation we have. People are either in a… Continue

help, please! What would you do?

Posted on May 21, 2010 at 12:01pm 17 Comments

I have been recruiting a long time, and I have seen more than I care to of the eccentricities of the human nature over the past 14 years. Every once in a while, I am stumped. I contacted this developer about a position with a company in the radio industry, and this is the response I got.



How would you respond?…

Born to Recruit?

Posted on December 9, 2009 at 7:58pm 16 Comments



The longer I am in the industry, the more convinced I am that there are naturals for our profession. I have tried training people who don't have "it" and I am never successful. On the other hand, people with "it" need very little direction and they seem to take off like an airplane, often using new creative ways of doing it.



So what are these natural qualities? I will list a few, please add your ideas too because I could never think… Continue

Thanks, Julia. I would enjoy meeting up with you at some point. I frequent many of the area coffee shops. I'm new to the blog stuff but like it so far. Let me know if you want to meet up. Stay warm!

Thanks Julia, I appreciate your kind welcome. I am a partner at Executive Search and Placement (www.ExecutiveSearchandPlacement.net) too, but the medical side is new to me so I will certainly be seeking advice! Have a great evening.
