"Thanks, Britni, but I really don't see us going in the direction of video interviews. We are behavioral driven and the personal interaction is extremely important to us.
Wait, you have a digital voice feature to disguise…"
"Totally agree with Keith. It should have been part of the recruiting process. If it was, and the candidate kept it from you, then it's a good thing they didn't get hired by your client! Who knows what else they would have…"
"I ALWAYS read the cover letters! I am looking for content, grammar, spelling, formatting, etc. All those things that come up later and we freak out about! Much of that can lead to us excluding, or INCLUDING the candidate in the…"
"I'm probably in the minority here, but I am NOT a fan of video interviews/resumes. I believe in sitting down, face to face, and discussing things. Changing jobs, careers, etc, is an important part of our lives. It deserves our…"
"Honestly, not one of these has an impact on my recruiting. None of them have anything to do with the candidates themselves.
I will say, though, when it comes to email addresses, I will not accept resumes from a work email address.…"
"Find a local company that puts together a beautiful gift basket of sorts. Either local product, fruits, pastries, etc. Over the years we've done some pretty creative things. Made in Michigan baskets for business owners/HR…"
"The interesting thing here is we are trying to compare apples to oranges and say which one is better. Agency recruiters and internal recruiters are different, and have different goals, while the initial process is the same. To clarify,…"
"Nice article, Will! I, too, left recruiting for a bit (the Aerotek burnout, probably), but happily returned. Like you, I had an interim stint doing something completely different: I owned and ran two tutoring centers. Not…"
"I wish I had more information, but I don't think that is available to us....
I have a problem with recruiting for a position when even YOU don't know the company you are recruiting for. You are doing all the hard work and the middle…"
"I'm sorry you are going through this Bill, I can't imagine how it's been for you. I do have a little bit of advice for you, but please bare with me as I say it.....
Step outside of yourself and look at you through a…"
"The ONLY time I ask about graduation is if I went to the same school! It's more of an 'are we related' sort of question and not discriminatory. I usually preface it with, 'That's where I went, when did you…"
"No offense to Jay, but I would NOT ask any one of those questions at the top of his list! You can google the questions and find ways to answer them. When looking for a recruiter for your company, first and foremost you need to determine…"
"I have a degree in 'Relationship Counseling', with a business background, so it just sort of made sense. I actually fell into it (recruited by Aerotek initially) but wanted more out of the whole thing. More interaction with…"
