Ryan McCormick commented on Tony Hogeveen's blog post 'Captain Obvious and the Lowball Offer'
"Tony, great article! I work in IT recruiting where good talent is scarce. Candidates who accept lowball offers are sure to take the next job they find with a better offer. Cheap = No loyalty."

Ryan McCormick replied to Megan Doan's discussion 'Are Recruiters Still Using Business Cards?'
"You never know where you are going to meet a prospective client or candidate. The recruiting business is a networking game, and making yourself easy to reach is a big part of that. Business cards are highly relevant, and vista print is a cheap place…"

So, how long does it take to find a new job?  I have heard this question a lot over the past year.The answer to this question is unknown as data, statistics and personal success is difficult to quantify when comparing the total population of people interviewing. Perhaps a better question would be “What can I do to improve my chances of finding a job as quick as possible”? or “What can I do to improve my chances of finding a job”?Everyone has a different level of background, experience, skill…See More

"Darryl - you raise a good question about video resumes, they certainly could open up a big-ole can of problems. I have never received a video resume, so I can't speak from experience how I would handle them. I would probably avoid them and…"

"I have had a client use a similar tactic. My candidate wanted more money and the client met him half way but insisted on a decision in 24 hours otherwise they would offer another candidate."

"Great post Ryan - sad to say but there are still an abundance of these errors making their way across recruiters' desks and ATS databases each day. Personally I've seen few of the 'personal information' issues for domestic jobs,…"

Simon Topps commented on Ryan McCormick's blog post '7 Deadly Resume Writing Sins'
"Good article on the whole but disagree with point 5. The majority of my clients (who range from insurance to gaming to consultancy to finance to public sector and most inbetween) all want to see what hobbies and interests a candidate has outside of…"

7 Deadly Resume Writing Sins

There are certain types of information that is better left off of a resume, yet there are people out there who are committing self sabotage by including it on their resume. Here is my list of 7 deadly sins to resume writing:1. PhotographDiscrimination in hiring still exists today, by adding a photograph; one reveals information about themselves that falls into protected classes which could lead to employment discrimination (age, gender, race, origin, etc…). In addition to the discrimination…See More

Bitten by a Zombie (Candidate)

Posted on March 29, 2012 at 12:04pm 3 Comments

I had taken a hot job order from a new client, you know the golden type that always picks up the phone when you call, responds to e-mails almost immediately, instant feedback on candidates, basically the best case scenario. In my initial sourcing efforts, I found three solid candidates. I set up interviews immediately and received instant feedback with an offer for one of them. I was excited as the candidate they selected was a perfect personality fit, had the required skills, background,…
