"One more thing, We had a similar situation but the candidate had submitted themselves almost ten years ago (and they were still 'active' in the system!). The company said that since the candidate was in their system they…"
"This has happened in the past (for a LARGE automotive company), actually, it was the norm when positions were posted with different contract houses (not always with the company directly). With other contract houses, whoever gets the resume in…"
"I would argue the LI point. Not everyone is on it, and some execs don't see the need nor feel the value in it. Honestly, I can't blame them. It's just a tool. The headhunter, however, should have a COMPLETE…"
"I despise the thought of recruiters using Facebook as a recruiting tool! Everything on FB has the potential to be taken out of context, and shame on the recruiter for allowing that to come into play.
Same with the interview question,…"
"I feel for you, oh anonymous recruiter, as I've been there too....the stories I could tell you of the things I had to do as a 'team player'...nothing illegal, just borderline lacking in integrity. My opinion, but that's…"
"Mike, good for you!! I've recently done the same thing and would heartily argue that we are diluting the recruiting pool by going out on our own! My level of ethics and integrity hasn't wavered, but now clients KNOW that the…"
Great question and good for you! Thanks for your service, too.
I have not been a military recruiter so my experience is coming from someone who's worked for large recruiting company and now has my own. While the skills are…"
"Absolutely try to find out what her issue is, and incorporate the take away as well. If it's too easy to take away from her, she's not the right candidate.
One word of caution, however. Please do NOT use the 'we have other…"
"The basis of your points are great, Martin, but I have a word of caution here. When you use a euphemism to describe something, you are assuming the other person will have exactly the same understanding. Not all people do, and it's…"
"I have fired clients before, too, and I don't like doing it, but when it's our name and reputation on the line, you'd better believe I'll do it! We'll partner with HR until the end of time, but we will NOT take the…"
"I have a huge concern if someone is telling you to limit your time with your candidates!! I've been told this over the years but I stand by my successful fill percentage! There are some really good tips here, but I would caution you…"
"I'm probably in the minority here, but I am a recruiter who does NOT look at a candidates facebook page. Why? Because FB is for play and things can be taken out of context WAY too quickly. You even mentioned in your post that…"
"Excellent article, Josh!! Very well done. I'd like to add that just because someone is in HR it doesn't mean they are a 'recruiter' and just because someone is the hiring manager it doesn't mean they can do the…"
"I would caution on going the 'creative' route, Tim, in that you run the risk of the candidate not understanding what you are saying. I'm bringing this up because when I first started in the industry I tried to sugar coat the…"
"I had this EXACT conversation yesterday!! I received an invite to connect from someone who should know better! I haven't responded yet and I'm debating what/how to respond. I love that you called it 'Illin'.…"
"Much of what you are talking about is discussed during our interview process. There is a reason why our interviews are 3-4 hours in length! We strongly encourage the candidates AND the clients to be honest about the motivators, culture,…"
