Pete Radloff commented on Kelly Blokdijk's blog post 'Talent Shortage or Trust Shortage?'
"Well done Kelly. If there were a way to quantify the key talent that is being missed by those who are wrongly, (possibly) illegally discarding candidates, then that could be impactful.  Pie in the sky, I know, but it makes you want to just ball…"

Actually, Recruiting IS Sales - How I've Come To Accept It

Posted on April 4, 2014 at 10:43am 17 Comments

I read the article by Kyle Lagunas about recruiting, and how it’s not like selling at all. And while I appreciate his thoughts, I think they are misguided, and frankly, I still think he’s speaking as an "expert" in an area where he doesn’t have any applicable experience. This is akin to me giving stock advice. Sure, I have a brokerage account, but I lack the Series 7 that would be critical for me…

For example, fill out the application (at the time after we’ve scheduled an interview of course – I wouldn’t want to enrage any of the candidate experience gods by asking for legal paperwork too early on when I should be offering a Frappa Mocha Someshit so that I can make…


Recruiting: Darwinism or Creationism?

Posted on February 14, 2014 at 10:00am 11 Comments

In full disclosure, I’m a huge geek. In 99 out of 100 opportunities on any given night, I’ll watch anything that is on the NatGeo or History Channels before I watch any of that mindless drivel of reality TV. (the Real World still gets a lifetime free pass). And so I had the opportunity to get all freaky with my inner geek and watch the …
