Paul Hanchett commented on Benjamin McCall's blog post 'Keep the Performance Review, Trash the Bad Manager'
"Benjamin, I think you are absolutely right on. I personally have had reviews that were great tools for enhancing my performance, and others that bore no relation whatever to either my performance or value to the company. The danger in having a…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Ashley Barker's blog post 'To tell or not to tell...'
"I think there is a question of agency here-- who are you really working for? If you work for the client then there is no need to tell what you are doing. But if you are working for the candidate, then your obligation is to tell them if your…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Bregman's blog post 'Performance vs. Competency - A Better Interview'
"One of the concerns I have about these techniques is that, while they do a grand job of assessing behavior in the past, they do not speak to the ability to handle future challenges and opportunities. Thinking of the big picture, they slant selection…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"It's a good article. As for ageism itself, and at the risk of irritating some people, the cure is to speak up when we see it and to tell others that we think it is the wrong thing to do. I understand that it is uncomfortable with a client but…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"I'm sorry? Just where did I liken anyone to a Nazi or call them immoral? I said: > I wonder, if you give in to it don't you become part of the problem? In Nazi Germany > many atrocities were quietly allowed because "I really…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"Mass murder and genocide cannot occur until the object of hatred has been deemed not worthy of the protections of society. Genocide is merely one possible end point of discrimination. It is only a matter of degree, not kind. It starts with a…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"I wonder, if you give in to it don't you become part of the problem? In Nazi Germany many atrocities were quietly allowed because "I really can't do anything about it"... The real test is, if the applicant were Black, Hispanic,…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"Sandra, worthwhile points. Clearly your candidate was in the wrong, he was unwilling to meet a fundamental requirement of the position. Besides, he blew the "Get the offer first, then negotiate" rule. That said, concern about dealing with…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"it's fine to rule out people ... with too much software development experience for an entry-level software development position And why would that be? Odds are very good the advanced developer would be faster and write better code as well as…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"> We're there to provide what the client wants, Very true, yet there are limits on how far most of us would take this-- What would you do if a client said "Just send me whites" or "Don't send any…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Mark Lennard's blog post 'Ageism - Recruiters, Are You Just Being Politically Correct?'
"Ageism is alive and well in IT/Software Development. It usually comes in the form of an applicant being "over qualified". (According to statistics a very large fraction of the work force in the US is over qualified for the position they…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Becki Dunaway's blog post 'The Black Hole of Recruitment – The Applicant Tracking System – Part 2'
"My point was that what is natural to you, might not be so for someone else. Just as what is natural for someone else might not be so for you. The point was, unless that skill or ability has something to do with ability to carry out the position, it…"

Paul Hanchett commented on Becki Dunaway's blog post 'The Black Hole of Recruitment – The Applicant Tracking System – Part 2'
"Sylvia, I hear you but I wonder if it misses the point-- I personally was raised with an ethos that frowned on using friends and connections for personal gain, so it would be morally difficult for someone like me to use your short cut. The point in…"
