Malia Jorgensen commented on Kelly McKinsey's blog post 'Back in the saddle...'
"Totally can relate!  I just started back in IT recruiting after 6 years of being away.  Technology has changed everything, but what I have found is that the basic respect for people can still be had.  If we are sincere in how we talk…"

Kelly McKinsey commented on Mike Rasmussen's blog post 'Effective Desk Management - A Little Bit of the Magic That Makes For Great Recruiting'
"Thanks for sharing your secrets to success Mike. I like numbers 1 and 3. I think vision and planning time to eat are more important than anything else. Number 6 is the crux. I think the most difficult part of managing a desk is prioritizing calls,…"

Unemployment Contemplations

I recently read this article about hiring managers and recruiters’ tendency to discriminate against the unemployed.  I have also been meeting lots of candidates who are unemployed, sometimes for more than 6 months or even a year.  My heart goes out to them, but I really do believe that it’s difficult to place candidates who have been out of work for long periods of time. I…See More

Kelly McKinsey commented on Russell White's blog post 'Why Recruiters Get A Bad Rep'

Kelly McKinsey commented on Kelly McKinsey's blog post 'Back in the saddle...'

Peter Ceccarelli commented on Kelly McKinsey's blog post 'Back in the saddle...'
"It really hasn't changed as much as you think it has.  The tools you mention are just that.  Tools.  This is still a people business and it does require actually speaking to someone on the phone or in…"

Back in the saddle...

After almost five years, I have returned to the IT staffing industry in order to be a founding member and recruiter at Kranect. I have found the industry somewhat changed in that social media and technology have changed how people interact when it comes to jobs. For example when I was last recruiting, Twitter was barely in existence, Facebook was just becoming available to non-students, and LinkedIn wasn’t the recruiting tool it has become today. People were still on MySpace for goodness…See More
