Has anyone else ever been in the situation of having five retained searches at one time, with two offers coming out, and still feeling like there just isn't any business out there?  It's a weird feeling.  I wonder if there's a logical explanation.See More

Dear LinkedIn,

To: 'lcsfeedback@linkedin.com'CC: 'spam@uce.gov'; 'fraudcomplaint@ftc.gov'; 'askdoj@usdoj.gov'; 'AskCAECyberOps@nsa.gov'Dear LinkedIN, I am concerned with your extortionate and unethical business practices. All the stats I am getting from your company have been fake or wrong for months.  For example, your data shows that an overwhelming majority of the people I contacted have been at their jobs less than 1 year, which is completely false, since I only contact people who have been at their job…See More

Boolean "Keyword" Search and Glial Cells

Posted on February 13, 2015 at 11:30pm 0 Comments

One of the fairly persistent complaints I have heard from non-recruiters about what recruiters do is "You only match buzzwords and keywords. Even a monkey can do that.  You are a talentless fool who could only make a living being a parasite off of gainfully employed people."

Of course, this is a complete fallacy, which we all know.  Firstly, as someone who actually studied Boolean Logic as a Philosophy major at Princeton University (which was the World's highest-rated academic…

Cyberbullying Ring Targets Recruiters

Posted on February 9, 2015 at 10:08pm 0 Comments

Owing to some very sloppy programming, by a rather amateurish Ruby coder, I was able to exploit a vulnerability in www.recruiterspam.com and determine the number of actual email addresses that received claimed 'spam' sent by recruiters. As far as I can tell, the number is 460, although possibly it is as low as 57 people using multiple "spam-trap" addresses, which is an illegal and deceptive practice recently ruled by the Courts to be…

Uncertainty, Indeterminacy and Salary Negotiations

Posted on December 19, 2014 at 1:30am 0 Comments

I'm trying to understand the principles of "Information Asymmetry and Salary Negotiation".  Has anyone read any new research on this topic which can prove one way or another whether the 'first person to name a number' loses?  I don't believe that entirely, although in some situations I do.  My client was upset that I told a candidate the top of the salary range, although the candidate was $100K per year above the salary range, but still interested in the job, even after I tried to…

Executive Search as A Science

Posted on December 10, 2014 at 2:49am 0 Comments

I think Executive Search is a field of study with somewhat contradictory parts to it -- for instance, that there is an emphasis on thoroughness, diligence, exhaustiveness, finding ALL possible solutions, etc.; but, there is also a high emphasis on intuitionistic processes, like deciding which candidate to call, guessing who might be most interested, anticipating what objections a client might have to a specific candidate, etc.

So, I see it as both an Art and a Science.  Nonetheless,…
