"Scientific Experiment: Using Google Chrome, I did a search for “Recruiters are great”, vs. “Recruiters suck”. The first won out with 47,500 results, while the second (also entered in quotes) had only 2,580 results. I am…"

"That is called a "double standard"  --  i.e. that it is okay for an Australian to refer to me as a "Liar", "Cheater", or "Thief, but that it is not acceptable for me to call them the same thing.…"

"@Nicholas Meyler I find your comments about Australia and Australians pretty offensive. 'I've had some experiences with Australians who were, to say the least, extremely misinformed and mistaken, highly belligerent, and even…"

"Fabulous blog title and I quite agree with your summary. It is up to every recruiter to attempt to create a better reputation for the industry. It will take a long time to turn the boat around but I do hope it will happen eventually."

Liars, Cheaters, and Thieves

In the past eight days of travel in Australia and New Zealand, I’ve asked over 100 people, chosen at random, the first word that comes to mind when they think of recruiters. In the past three months, I’ve asked this same question while in London and also about the staffing industry in several cities in the United States. I need only one hand to tick off the number of positive responses I heard, which included “helpful,” “partner,” and “beneficial.”On the other hand, and that one would need…See More

Selling is Simple…So Why is it So Hard?

More people fail than succeed at selling staffing and recruitment services. One element that raises the level of difficulty is that we sell the only product on the market that can change its mind. The bigger, underlying issue, however, is not the product but the approach to selling itself.Buyers, be they candidates buying into opportunities or hiring managers acquiring the services of the talent we represent, always believe themselves but only sometimes believe those who sell. Yet, most people…See More
