Love that Recruiting!

Started this discussion. Last reply by Valentino Martinez Feb 28, 2012. 1 Reply

Recruitment is like solving puzzles all day long. Though it is not always like a game, per se, I like to sink my teeth into a challenge - and recruiting definitely serves them up. So for 26 years I…Continue

"The article was not written by someone else. It's yours. Noel just reposted it at Linkedin. linkd.in/1i1CqtQ You can see how he titled it there along with other comments on the very same article that is here."

"Still interesting. The definition of candidate in these references is apparently job seeker. We don't "have" decent candidates. We find them. So we are not working for them. They weren't looking for work. We are looking for them.…"

"I find it interesting that the focus here is on benefits to candidates and not clients. My clients are my partners, not the candidates. That doesn’t mean we don’t treat candidates well. But our clients pay our fees and we’re…"

"Interesting. "Recruit is a verb" is a phrase that is both on our web site and email signatures."

Pamela Witzig commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'It's The Headhunter Fee, Stupid!'
"My goodness. I don' think anyone made a claim that all passive candidates are top talent. That pool is where the most qualified are found however. Job boards are far more apt to have the has-beens, wannabes, job-hoppers, etc."

Pamela Witzig commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'It's The Headhunter Fee, Stupid!'
"Yes, always off-radar Mark. Stephanie, I'm amazed recruiters didn't send references. Good ones have them on their Linkedin profiles and more delighted clients happy to give references. A recruiter worth their salt will make a *rifle*…"

Pamela Witzig commented on Ken Forrester's blog post 'It's The Headhunter Fee, Stupid!'
"Well done, Ken. We sometimes struggle with getting clients to "get" what we do. I think that is because of the many bad models of "recruiters" they've seen that just work with the low hanging fruit of active job seekers or…"

Pamela Witzig commented on Ashley Barker's blog post 'Dreaded MIA Candidate'
"It's true Rickie. People will often respond to text when they don't otherwise. It allows them to save face somehow I guess. It can finally get the job done on these weak personalities (just ask me how I feel about them - ha). And giving…"

Pamela Witzig commented on Ashley Barker's blog post 'Dreaded MIA Candidate'
"I would not want to keep this person in mind for future reference. Integrity is critical. Being completely unresponsive and avoiding the tough conversations says a lot to me about how they would (not) perform for my client. If I have to chase them,…"

Pamela Witzig commented on Gabriel Bachove's blog post 'Do you still pay a recruiter their commission if they leave the company?'
"I know I'm weighing in late. It seems not paying commissions may result in paying it out - or more - in legal fees and/or bad "press." Just consider it tuition as a learning experience to use to refine contracts, adjust benefits,…"
