"Thanks, Mike. I learned a long time ago that it is vital to make sure hiring managers' expectations are realistic and to keep them that way. If they aren't: there's trouble ahead.... Keep Blogging, Keith"

"Great post, MIke. Curious as to the entomology of "purple squirrel." I mean, why that color and that animal? But you nailed the concept behind it - thanks as always for an awesome read (and advice)."

The Elusive, Ever Hard To Find Purple Squirrel

Scenario - 1 week to schedule nearly 30 interviews, gain multiple momentum steps on many requirements, and making simultaneously multiple offers, screening more candidates to keep pipelines full, all while getting ready to move your 30-40 requirement desk to the point where manageability might even be realizable.  How can you do it?  How do you find the elusive, hard to find, perpetual purple squirrel time and again, or do you need to - will the candidate with those coach-able soft skills, and…See More

Your Staffing Resiliency

Posted on July 17, 2014 at 11:00pm 1 Comment

It happened in a weak moment, I looked at everything in front of me, the emails, the open requisitions, the Instant Messenger, the weight of perceived change, the choice to pursue a home after renting for so many years, the shifts of staffing momentum and the shifts of personal choices in my friends, church, home life, et al.  I pushed back and told myself I need to take a walk.  For 10 minutes I just took a walk and took everything in.  It was a moment where I was overwhelmed.  It was a…

Posted on July 2, 2014 at 12:30am 2 Comments

On a bright morning in Lake Tahoe I reached a moment of inward reflection thinking about what I personally needed to do to get to the next level in my career - and on Tuesday June 24th woke up bright and early to take the drive to Emerald Bay with my daughter on the Lake's West side.  It was looking out on this amazing "Jewel of the Sierras" that it hit me.

Where do you start the most basic effort to align your talent outcomes to superstar proportions?  What is it that launches your magical sourcing engine, value add, and effort to become a whole,…

Sourcing - Still Recruiting & Staffing's Core Strength

Posted on May 6, 2014 at 2:30am 1 Comment

It's wizardry in action, it's the core staffing inner fight, it's the need that comes when a recruiter finds their desk swamped with 40+ Requisitions, as I find my desk these days.  

It's when you have delivered everything you have and then some, only to be side-stepped by the reality that, individuals, free…
