""...ensuring that you're NOT costing yourself better employees..." in that last sentence!"

Kerry Skemp commented on Recruiting Animal's blog post 'Chris Fields, HR Guy'
"I think the wrong questions about diversity were asked in the show. Diversity is not important because a Greek programmer is "better" than a Russian programmer, it's important because programming (or other) talent is *independent* of…"

Kerry Skemp commented on Darren Scotland's blog post 'Frustration...'
"I like Derdiver's idea to send links to training courses. I think many people truly just don't "get" it, and giving them a way to learn more is a great response to their misguided application. Of course, those same people who…"

Kerry Skemp commented on Nicky Coffin's blog post 'Recruitment Training: The Rules Of Recruitment That Nobody Teaches'
"Sounds like basic life skills, but relevant for recruiting as well!"

Kerry Skemp replied to Matthew Evans's discussion 'What would you say are the key benefits of using an asynchronous video interview platform over the free available live web chat services?'
"IANAR (I am not a recruiter!), but I'd say that the different approaches test different skills. Asynchronous video comes closer to testing presentation skills and public speaking abilities, while an interview can tell you more about…"

There's a lot of buzz among recruiters about talent communities. The idea, from the recruiting side, is to build a talent community of dedicated professionals in a particular area.

Hiring Top Candidates: The Top Third Are on the Move... and They Want Money

A recent CareerBuilder survey found that a third of top performers changed jobs in 2012. That's a lot of people! Want to wager a guess how many of these top candidates found an opportunity through a job board or LinkedIn posting? I'd wager you it's not very many. (That's the…See More

Kerry Skemp commented on Maren Hogan's blog post 'Inside the Brain of the Passive Candidate'
"I like the recognition of the importance of social; it follows that those using social should also have a mobile strategy, since social is often experienced through that channel. (But is 21% really almost as big as 44%? Inaccurate scaling is an…"

Kerry Skemp commented on Alexander Gutin's blog post 'Warning: Mobile Apply Is Sinking Your Recruitment Process [INFOGRAPHIC]'
"I'm with you, Alexander. I think the most qualified candidates are the ones with the least time and the highest likelihood of responding to an intriguing opportunity on a quick and easy channel, like mobile. They're probably less likely to…"

Kerry Skemp commented on Will Thomson's blog post '10 Reasons Every Recruiter Must Start With an Agency'
"This is great stuff! As a vendor (full disclosure!) I'd be interested in hearing about this from a technology perspective. Do you think agencies are ahead of the curve or behind it when it comes to adopting new tools that can help your search?"

Why You Should Look for a New Job at Your Current One

Earlier today, I read an article about the top job search mistake: looking for a new job from your current one. While it's a little over the top to contact recruiters and submit resumes using your current workplace email address or phone number, I disagree to some extent with the alarmist assertion that "once the boss knows you are thinking about leaving, they might just show you the door first." While this may be…See More

Kerry Skemp commented on Jorg Stegemann's blog post '5 Reasons Your Online Job Application Did Not Catch My Attention'
"I think this is a good summary from the perspective of someone trying to match a candidate to a specific job opening. But, coming from the startup world (as I do), I think there's always merit in learning about qualified people who don't…"

Could using big data for recruiting hide your purple squirrels?

Last night, I attended Moneyball for Talent Acquisition, a great presentation by LinkedIn’s James Raybould on how to use data to drive your talent search. Raybould pointed out some of the ways in which LinkedIn can help you narrow down your candidate pool, identifying the supply of qualified candidates for a given position based on particular characteristics. And where there’s lots of competition for qualified people–hiring for casino…See More
