Agencies - what have you done for me lately?

Let's not start World War 3 here - but I kind of want to debate this a little and draw out things I'm not necessarily aware of. I've done my time in agency, RPO and corporate recruitment, and can confidently say I have the same skills and experience as the average agency recruiter today.So why use a recruitment agency?  I can think of a few scenarios that fall into three main categories:Specialised networks - those agencies that have a network of niche professionals so well hidden, I can't find…See More

Please whatever you do, do not pay for a ticket to Linkedin Talent Connect #ever

This year was the first I was fortunate enough to attend Linkedin's Talent Connect last week in Sydney (Last year I requested to go along as all my peers were invited, but as I was in agency at the time they told me the content would not be 'relevant' to an agency recruiter...)Luckily for me I got to see a few friends and network a little, but the rest of the time was pretty ehhh. I learned more (not really) about using a product my company has already bought.  I was perplexed to see members of…See More

No news is bad news

You know the story.  You find a great candidate, they tell you how keen they are to join your company, you organise interviews and start the hiring process; the manager likes them so much they go out on a limb to get an offer to them... the candidate verbally accepts; and then... silence.  You can't reach the candidate, they don't respond to your messages and the joining date is rapidly approachingThe exact circumstance can differ by varying aspects (permanent / contract / immediately available…See More

The qualities that make a perfect recruiter

Posted on December 9, 2013 at 6:04am 4 Comments

I was fortunate enough to attend @BillBoorman 's #TruAustralia event in Sydney last week, and one of the tracks centered around the qualities we believe make a great recruiter.

It got me thinking, what would I request next time I order a perfect…

Why I'm loving my new RPO job

Posted on October 27, 2013 at 6:30am 5 Comments

I recently joined a Global RPO solution onsite at an investment bank.  Making the leap from agency, especially as an established consultant where I managed to build an innovative sourcing desk servicing an entire business; into a new position and environment was a huge risk for me. 

I went with my gut and chose carefully, selecting an RPO that had a…

Boolean strings and why they may not work magically for you

Posted on August 4, 2012 at 9:00pm 1 Comment

In the last 3 years I have become obsessively interested in social recruiting, and using social media for public relations, talent attraction and certainly passive talent sourcing.  I'm sure that any recruiter in Sydney by now has a 'cheat sheet' on their desk with a reliable and changeable search string right?  It's an unavoidable subject and I so love hearing from rookies to experienced…
