Hello, Goodbye

In a recent post of mine that drew some parallels between David Mimet’s Glengarry Glen Ross and recruiting, I included a section called “Selling to the Nyborgs.” This section addressed the importance of being able to identify candidates that will talk the talk, but won’t walk the walk. In other words, candidates who from a macro perspective look quite attractive, but in the end, after all of your efforts, you’ll end up right back where you started, and so will they because for whatever reason,…See More

"I whole heartedly believe that most recruiters out there have the candidate's best intentions in mind - initially, anyway. The trick is not to pull a Shelly Levene...to push and struggle trying to do it right, only to bend to the pressure at…"

Coffee is for Closers

We hear it all the time – Recruiters are sales people. Whether you work in an agency or in-house, your job is to track down leads, fulfill metrics and often times convince people to do things they may feel reluctant to do. But what kind of sales person do you want to be, and more importantly, not be?Last weekend I saw the Seattle Repertoire Theater version of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glen Ross. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Glengarry Glen Ross is a Pulitzer Prize winning play from 1984,…See More

"Hey Mindy, interesting post. I'm a fan of Glengarry Glen Ross especially Alec Baldwin in the film. I agree that candidate focus is important but how do we balance our time spent on clients and our time on candidates. It's always difficult…"

"Great post, indeed! It's nice to see some ethical requirements taking shape in Recruiting. It's still a field where anyone can step in without any qualifications and make the job a nightmare or a dream."

Til' Death Do We Part – How Spousal Interference Can Kill Your Job Search

Posted on November 9, 2009 at 2:30pm 1 Comment

If you are in a relationship, or know someone who is, you’ve quite likely experienced first or second hand the “We” Syndrome. We love that restaurant. We always listen to Jazz. We are trying to get pregnant. There’s a time and a place for every pronoun – But when it comes to your spouse’s job search, save the “we” for your favorite kind of pizza.

Last week I got an interesting call. I had been working with a… Continue

Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Posted on October 28, 2009 at 1:00pm 1 Comment



In considering the question of the future of recruiting, it all comes down to the classic conflict of Man vs. Machine. We’ve seen it before, books and movies depicting future societies that become overly dependent on advanced technology, resulting in the threat of extinction to mankind. “Battlestar Gallactica,” “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep”, “Blade Runner,” “ Terminator,” etc. All of these books and movies tell the story of the… Continue

Recruiters Don't Want to Kill Your Grandmother (and other recruiting myths debunked)

Posted on September 8, 2009 at 4:00pm 5 Comments

Commentaries, articles, posts and emails have been flying left and right in an attempt to clarify and disassemble the falsities being spread about Obama's healthcare reform. Rumors of death panels, promoting euthanasia, cutting Medicaid and bringing about a complete government takeover of healthcare have been flooding the media channels. I’ve watched in wonderment as town hall meetings, editorials and letters escalated to the point of comparing… Continue
